Camel double breasted blazer from Banana Republic is definitely a wise investment in a professional wardrobe, can be worn with skirts, jeans and trousers and it can double as a coat.
When it comes to footwear, I am a firm believer that you have to invest more to get better quality, especially in boots. Partially this is because I am from Russia where you always have to get natural materials to keep you warm. The faux suede OTK boots from Forever 21 looked so good in person that I had to get them in black and grey, despite my believes. To tell the truth I am obsessed with OTK boots and own few pairs, although they don’t belong to professional wardrobe unless you wear it with midi or knee length skirt to cover them up. I purchased my boots last winter. This season Forever 21 is selling similar style boots made with genuine suede and they are currently on a wait list here.
