moving up here after college, i found myself a little overwhelmed with outerwear options.
what do you really need in a four-season climate? and what's just for fun?
as a young professional, i found this a little tricky to figure out. especially with a limited budget.
here in dc, we've been having this oddly warm late winter/early spring. and who knows what the rest of march will bring.
i've been in the professional workforce since 2004. and during that time, i think i've developed a pretty good idea of the basics. the essential pieces to keep you warm, dry, and chic all year.
let's dive in:

for me, this covers the basics: three lightweight jackets for spring and fall (including one that's waterproof and has a hood), two coats for winter (one that's waterproof and extra warm), and two basic-but-not-boring blazers for work.
now if you live somewhere warmer, you probably won't need or want the puffer, but you get the idea.
i was also toying with the idea of adding a faux leather jacket and a car coat/topper. but to me, those are more for fun and not as essential.

i'm planning to a 'very necessary' post somewhat regularly on here.
we'll talk office wear essentials.
