Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores.

- a work-appropriate hem length (with no slits to compromise that — test with the mirror trick!)
- a high enough neckline and shoulder situation that you don’t need to give any extra thought to which bra to wear
- a dark, neutral color like black, navy, or dark charcoal
And — for me at least — I think a sleeveless sheath dress is best because it looks best beneath blazers and cardigans.
Update: here are some of our favorite stylish sheath dresses in regular and plus sizes, as well as some colorful options!
