How to Build a Basic Wardrobe of Work Clothes For Women

If you're just entering the work force, returning to it, or starting a high-powered new job, it's a great time to check out the latest styles in work clothes for women. Gone are the days when womens pant suits were required every day – though they're still important!

Now, there is more flexibility with womens clothes in the workplace, but it's still important to look polished and professional. Different workplaces also have different requirements for womens clothes.

Hopefully during your first interviews or visits to your new workplace, you got a feel for the appropriate choices of work clothes for women. Use that as a guide, but beyond that, here are some staples of womens clothes you should keep in your work wardrobe.

Womens pant suits: Womens pant suits are not required in many American workplaces any more, but if you're in a management position, you will likely need at least one. Womens pant suits are just as accepted as more formal skirt suits these days, but you still need to choose carefully. Pick a classic cut, color, and fabric for your womens pant suits so you will not need to replace them often.

Skirts and pants: For times when you do not feel like wearing womens pant suits, skirt and pants separates are also, of course, appropriate work clothes for women. Again, it's best to pick basic colors – black, navy blue, and maybe khaki. This way, you can change outfits by just changing your tops, and you will not need to buy as many separates.

Jackets: If you've invested in a couple of womens pant suits, you can take the jacket from these to do double duty over matching, but separate, womens clothes. If you've opted to skip the womens pant suits, though, again for jackets follow the same rules as skirts and pants – pick basic colors that will match many tops.

Button-down shirts and blouses: Here is where clothes for women get more flexible. If the rest of your outfit is modest, you can add a splash of color or some trendy womens clothes details in your tops.

Just make sure you pick womens clothes that are appropriate for day time – do not get too trendy. Remember, these are work clothes for women, and if you're going out afterwards, you can always change.

Accessories: Work clothes for women do not have to be boring. Try buying some colorful scarves, or inexpensive accessories like purses and jewelry, to make your outfits more personal. This is the most affordable way to stretch your wardrobe before you buy more womens clothes.

Building a new wardrobe of work clothes for women, especially if you're just starting out in your career, can be daunting. It can also be expensive! Luckily there are a number of online womens clothes resources where you can find affordable womens pant suits, dresses, jackets, and more.

One option you should definitely check out for affordable trendy fashions is the women's clothing brand HeartSoul. The brand offers selections from the trendier side of womens clothes, including many different kinds of work clothes for women that are young, fresh, and most importantly, affordable.

10. Final Fantasy X – The first Final Fantasy game on PlayStation 2 successfully evolves the best selling RPG franchise. FFX has a very deep battle system with even more complex stat upgrades. Your characters can literally take on hundreds of combinations of skills and abilities.

9. Guitar Hero – Live your rock and roll dreams in Guitar Hero. Use a real guitar controller to play all your favorite rock ballads and guitar solos. Hours of songs to play, multiple difficulty levels for even master players, and a song list with tons of classics. This game is great for casual players because it is so easy to pick up, but will keep you coming back with the steady increase in difficulty.

8. Katamari Damacy – A very strange promise, but very fun game. Roll a ball around a level. Smaller objects get stuck to the ball making it bigger, then you can roll over bigger objects. You have to grow your ball to a certain size to clear every level. Tons of replayability, random and funny cut-scenes, and solid game play make this a very unique but great game for the PlayStation 2.

7. Ico – The game did not sell very well, but has a great story, good puzzle design, and environments that make you forget you are playing a game sometimes. You play as a boy who is destined to be sacrificed to appease the Gods. He must make his way way through the world and solve puzzles or face his grim fate.

6. Kingdom Hearts – Square Enix combines the Final Fantasy and Disney characters into one role playing adventure.

You will love all the cameos from the Disney movies and cartoons.

5. Metal Gear Solid 2 – The sequel to Metal Gear Solid for the original Playstation. Play as Solid Snake as attempts to stop a resistance group from gaining control of a high-tech weapon.

Its an action packed, heart pounding horror game as Leon tries to save the President's daughter. With a 95% review score from gamerankings.com it is the best reviewed PS2 game of all time.

2. Gran Turismo 3 – Hands down the best racing simulator. Gran Turismo 3 is a realistic racing game with real cars, real tracks, and real life attributes for all of them. Racing a VW Bug will feel different than racing a Corvette. Different acceleration, speed, and handling for each car and track. And I did not even mention the impressive graphics yet. If you love cars, this is the best racing game you can get.

1. God of War – Great graphics, epic story, near perfect controls. This is the best game on PlayStation 2 and one of the better games released the past generation. Play as Kratos as he makes his way through ancient Greece fighting mythological creatures and using his fallen foes powers to vanquish future enemies. A best seller, highly reviewed, and all around great game.

If any of these games are not in your PlayStation 2 collection you should buy them. All ten games of these games are great gaming experiences that every gamer should experience.

The Passive and Supportive Stepford Wife

Some of us ladies have a horror of becoming something of a Stepford Wife; that squeaky clean, air-headed, submissive little house person who does not have a thought of her own beyond an imaginative dinner menu to please her lord and master.

There are women who buy into this garbage, especially the wives of busy senior corporate executives which wifely duties entail standing by good old George or Fred or whatever his name is at every major company function, the epitome of wifely splendor in every respect – coiffed, perfumed and beautifully dressed to the envy of every other lady present. Such women produce perfect buffets at twenty minutes notice for ninety without turning a hair. Personally if my husband suggested we might entertain a dozen executives for dinner at three days notice I would check myself into an asylum and hide there until the pension matured.

Contrary to mine and just about every other intelligent woman's opinion, are these ladies really leading satisfied and fulfilled existences? Can virtual enslavement really be that much fun? Most of them would lead us to think that it is, but women caught up in the corporate merry go round of competitive high achievement are brain trained to support such statements regardless of their actual feelings.

Who began this nonsense anyway? Who decided it was unacceptable to wear the same outfit to two functions consecutively? Who made it a rule that sophistication had to go hand in hand with a complete loss of humor? Why do these elegant ladies never smile / stumble / fart? Must all resemblance to the human race as a species be removed before one is considered to be special enough to entertain at boardroom level?

There are, it is believed, certain compensations for having to appear at every company social function behaving as if one's brain has been picked – most of them monetary or, appropriately enough – plastic.

To all you junior executive wives with an ambition to push Herbert up the corporate ladder as fast as possible – get a life, girls, there are more important things to worry about than whether the table is properly dressed or should Mavis be wearing more expensive shoes than the wife of who ever happens to be the head peaceut this week.
