We’re wrapping up our millennial Q&A series with stylist Kalyn Johnson with a question near and dear to every recent college grad: what are the most important fashion pieces to spend your money on when you’re just getting a career started and trying to stick to a budget? Kalyn recommends investing in quality basics that will last:

1. A well-made suit that really fits

2. A nice briefcase or tote bag

3. A quality watch

4. Stylish and classic dress shoes or high heels

5. A trench coat to look professional come rain or shine

6. At least one piece of quality luggage appropriate for business travel

Man, I wish someone would have told me that before I took my first business trip with a beat up European camping backpack.  Classy.
