Law School Clothing Basics

Creating your legal wardrobe is tough. Professional clothing can get expensive, and it's hard to know what range of dress code styles you should have in your closet. However, you can create a law school wardrobe by getting together some basics that you can mix and match.

Even more, what are you supposed to wear to class every day? If you're like me, you try to dress nice about 90 percent of the time, I'll occasionally slip into my undergrad uniform of leggings and an over-sized sweatshirt. I included some photos of some of my favorite outfits to wear for class in this blog as well for some inspiration if you're at a loss for outfit ideas.



Dress from Ann Taylor

Getting a dress you really love will put you into a great mood whenever you put it on. If you get it in a neutral color, you can pair it with plenty of different colors of blazers and sweaters to create more versatility in your wardrobe, too.

Black Blazer

Blazer from Von Maur

This is an ideal color to have a blazer in, and for obvious reasons. And, luckily enough, you can ALWAYS find a black blazer.

Patterned Blazer

Blazer from H&M

Having  a statement piece like a patterned blazer will add a little bit of diversity to your wardrobe. I've gotten so many compliments on my patterned blazer, and I'm sure you will, too.

Black Dress Pants

Pants from Ann Taylor

Just like a black blazer, a pair of black dress pants (or several) will make your closet go a long way. Black is such a versatile color, so you'll be able to pair it with anything else in your wardrobe.

White Button Up

Top from H&M

Another staple you should definitely have multiples of! It's a classic piece of workwear, so it's best to get a few in different styles to mix and match.

Pencil Skirt

Skirt from Von Maur

Pencil skirts are, once again, a staple in any lawyer's closet. I have several in neutral colors like black and gray, as well as one in a black and white checkered pattern.


Shoes from Old Navy

For me, I can't wear only heels--my feet just can't take it. A pair of black flats keeps me comfortable, and these ones are cute enough to dress up any outfit, whether you're going to do your oral argument for legal writing and research or you have an interview.


Shoes from Kohl's

I always feel really powerful when I'm walking down a hallway and can hear my heels clicking against the floor. Black heels are always a good go-to!


Like I mentioned above, here are some outfit examples for what to wear for class. 

Top and dress from Dry Goods

Lately, I've really been into layering dresses over shirts to keep wearing my summer clothes during the winter. 

Top from TJ Maxx, jeans from Old Navy, sweater from Kohl's

Similar to above, layering has been my jam this winter! This is a great combination of light layers for a bit of a warmer day. 

Top from H&M, skirt from Dry Goods, sweater was thrifted

These are some of my all-time favorite pieces of clothing in my closet all put together into one outfit! I'd definitely recommend wearing as many of your favorite pieces of clothing together to put yourself into a great mood.
