30 Days of Workwear

October 23, 2018 | Filed in: Your Closet

At MM, we believe in cultivating a work wardrobe that is stylish, functional, and versatile. With that in mind, we created the “Perfect 10”: Ten key pieces that can be mixed and matched to create multiple looks, are subtle enough for frequent repeat wearing, and can even be used to polish up your weekend uniform. The Perfect 10 is also the perfect foundation on which to build a larger work wardrobe—and with that in mind, we created work outfits for 30 days, using those 10 items as our base. 

The Perfect 10:
