There comes a point in all young professionals’ lives that they must take a good look at their wardrobes and evaluate. Any experienced business person will tell you that first impressions in a professional setting are beyond important. Therefore it’s crucial that you present yourself in way that is representative of your qualifications, your goals, and of course, your personality.
It’s in this moment of closet evaluation that you may decide to ditch your first pair of work appropriate shoes that are falling apart at the heel or that itchy wool pencil skirt you bought on a whim from the sale rack because you needed something nice to wear for an interview. Your wardrobe and style, as unfair as it may seem, have a lot to do with the way people initially perceive you, and sometimes the best way to change their perception is to toss out the old and incorporate new fashion-forward staple pieces, like the ones that can be found at Spiritual America.
Based in Brooklyn, Spiritual America is a womenswear boutique that attempts to offer its customers designer fashion without an obnoxiously hefty price tag. With designers such as 10 Crosby/Derek Lam, Thakoon/Addition, SEE by CHLOE, Rachel Comey and more, all taking up space within its walls, the boutique is able to feature a plethora of fashion-forward clothing, shoes and accessories that have a heavy emphasis on neutrals, basics and geometric prints and silhouettes.
The best part about Spiritual America? Well, for those of us who aren’t able to call the “Big Apple” home, Spiritual America offers their same in store selections on their website. Below are a few of my favorite pieces currently available on their online shop:
Each of these items have the potential for long term closet residency as they’re classic enough so they won’t go out of style. However, with subtle design details of unusual silhouettes, interesting fabric choices, or a unique, yet neutral, print, they’ve got enough personality to represent who you really are and what you want to achieve without being boring.
