One of my favorite outfits for going out to dinner with my husband is a core group of classics: button-up blouse, pencil skirt (or full-length pants), good handbag and jewelry, and a pair of sleek pumps. And usually I’ll toss a sweater over my arm or shoulders, since restaurants can sometimes be chilly.  This same ensemble works well for a business meeting (minus the necklace); it’s quite versatile. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
