Being a boss isn't easy. You're often wearing several hats, working on multiple deadlines, and finding time to make an appearance at a rooftop happy hour somewhere in between. With such a demanding schedule, it's only fitting that you should have a closet full of staples that can keep up and make power moves with you. What you wear to an after-hours meeting with your team or even on a much-needed coffee run to refuel can impact your day in a major way — so you need to have a few key, never-fail staples (all fit for a boss) hanging in your closet at all times.
In partnership with I.N.C. International Concepts, created for Macy's, here are the four bold style staples you'll find in every boss's closet — and should be adding to yours right now.
The CEO Jacket
No styling trick says "I'm in control" like a chic jacket draped ever-so-carefully over your shoulders. But before you can try this look, you need to find the right CEO Jacket. In a double-breasted fit and totally on-trend hue, this one couldn't be more perfect. Paired with matching pants and some great heels, your look says, "I'm not bossy. I'm the boss."
The Boardroom Bag
Pulling your laptop out of a worn-out case is not a power move. Instead, carry a boardroom bag like this one with chain detailing to let everyone know you mean business. For even more of a style statement, scoop it up in red — the ultimate power color.
The Power Pant
Gone are the days of the classic skirt suit, and in its place are perfectly tailored Power Pants. What really makes these shine is their versatility. With a pair of heels and structured blouse you can create a chic silhouette, but with a cut-out sweater and slip-on flats you have an effortless look that's both approachable and powerful.
The Coffee Run-Ready Boots
Nothing powers you through your day like your go-to coffee order, but you can't make your coffee run in any old pair of sneakers. Instead, look to this right-from-the-runway sock boot trend. Not only is the heel height ideal for city moves, but the pull on style makes them easy to slip on and kick off when you're busy day winds down. If that doesn't make them worthy of a spot in your shoe collection, I don't know what will.
