Vintage Wardrobe Essentials for the Office (And WFH) this Fall


With many people continuing to work from home this fall, it's essential to have a wardrobe that can transition from the home office to the traditional office that strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and comfort. Here are some of our favorite wardrobe essentials found with Beni to wear to work this autumn season.
