Getting dressed for work in 2018 isn’t very complicated, especially if your office is actually a co-working space, studio share, or even just your local coffee shop. Not only are suits not required in most industries anymore (thank God), but jeans, sneakers and sweatshirts are now fair game, too. But here’s the thing: looking good never goes out of style. So even if you’re dressed down, even if your office is the floor of the restaurant you own, which closes at 2 a.m., it’s still worthwhile to pay attention to your appearance.
So take some modern advice on building a solid work wardrobe—no matter what line of work you’re in—from Ilaria Urbinati, stylist to Donald Glover, Ryan Reynolds, Rami Malek and countless other best-dressed stars.

Here, four tips from the expert that’ll transform your workwear game in no time.
