October is Future You Month at Urban List, where we're navigating all your big-time career dreaming—from slaying your first day at a new job and asking your boss for a raise, to banishing career burnout for good. 

And so this month, we’re diving right into the sometimes stressful world of workwear. No doubt, dressing for work ain’t quite what it used to be—more often than not it isn’t a suit and tie affair and the misty waters of “smart casual” vary from office to office. And that can make pulling an outfit for an interview, your first day or just any old Monday morning, well, hard work. 

But don’t worry, we’ve got you. Whether your office is super casual or a little more polished, now’s a great time to refresh your work wardrobe and dress for success with our edit of the best safe-for-work threads.

Here are 20 ideas to shop now that'll instantly level up your work look (and hey, maybe even score you a raise).
