A tasteful "little black dress" is the hallmark of a simple yet refined business wardrobe. Invest in a quality dress that skims the knee. A dress with a structured fit and nice details (like the capped sleeves here) is professional yet still modern.

To give your outfit some life, pair the dress with an pair of textured tights, like the ones shown here. Make sure the pattern is subtle, though - a sheer stripe, cable pattern or ribbed look adds texture and interest, but anything that resembles outright fishnets is not work-place appropriate.

Finish your outfit with a pair of black heels for a classic, timeless business formal look.
