Outfit ideas for lawyers: 7 go-to essentials

Even though our office does not require us to wear a suit or a very sophisticated dress to work, we deeply understand those women who actually are obligated to look sharp and flawless every day. 

We have lots of lawyer customers: from young executives to partners. When they talk about work, they most usually complain about how difficult it is to find clothes for lawyers. Courtroom attire is very strict, and you are not allowed to make any mistakes. Lots of women lawyer suits are boring and colorless, and we’ve been noticing that there are very few useful articles on how to dress like a lawyer. 

So, without further ado - let’s dive in. Here are our seven essentials that every female lawyer needs!

12. Camel - For Better and For Worst

When talking about wardrobe essentials we often forget about outerwear. Maybe it is less visible, but it is as important as any other piece of clothing! And investing in a great coat is crucial. The good news is that you do not need dozens of coats (like for instance wear-to-work dresses), but you need at least one great. 

Every well-curated wardrobe should include a camel coat it goes perfectly with classical suits, pants, and LBD.

13. A Secret Weapon - A Statement Scarf

When you need a different kind of accessory, what could fit better in a courtroom than an elegant scarf? It looks fabulous, feminine and does not attract much attention, but always catches the eye. These scarves were created using a special calligraphic technique. When the scarf is worn, the message is not clearly seen by others but looks more like a subtle pattern on a fabric. It’s like a little secret that only you know, and it is so powerful!
