How to look stylish but sophisticated.

Lovers of fashion often find themselves having to tame their style for work and professional settings, leaving them feeling inauthentic.

It's essential to feel comfortable in what you are wearing so you can be confident and succeed. Whether you're dressing for a board meeting at your office or you're planning for a job interview, every fashionista should master outfits for VIPs — very important power-meetings.

We've picked out nine stylish staples you can wear to ensure you're still putting your best — and most fashionable — foot forward.

1. The Peplum Blouse

Nothing takes a boring blouse from drab to fab like professional peplum ruffles in a crisp white color.

2. The Black Cape Blazer

Skip the boring, basic black blazer and try a cape jacket instead. It's impossible not to look chic in one of these — trust us.

3. The Tie-Neck Blouse

If you need to err on the conservative side, a white shirt blouse with a preppy tie-neck bow will do the trick.

4. The Form Fitting Dress

Feel free to wear a figure flattering dress. Just make sure you're not showing too much skin and choose a style that hits your knees.

5. The Pencil Skirt

Find a pencil skirt in a feminine shade like blush to stand out in a sea of basic black.

6. Strappy High Heels

There's no need to wear ultra-conservative shoes to a VIP. These caged pumps are eye-catching but demure.

7. The Power Purse

Forget carrying around a bulky briefcase. Choose a color block bag to add interest to any outfit.

8. The Work Watch

Opt for a modern looking watch in rose gold — its both fashionable and functional.

9. The Statement Earrings

Statement earrings are a subtle way to show off your style and personality without being as distracting as a chunky necklace.
