Cardigans are one of the most practical basics of a professional closet. Depending on the choice, they can dress up or dress down an outfit, adapt it for a different season, and entirely change the aesthetic and color palette. This ivory cardigan is a good first choice since it can blend into nearly any variety of colors, but for the price you don't have to stick with just one! Black, grey, and wine are also versatile options. For an example of an outfit in this series that puts a grey cardigan to good use with a unique color palette, see Real Estate Agent Dress Code: Make a Great First Impression.

Professional Black Pumps

Cute black pumps that can be your new go-to shoe - RealToDo CRM

Pumps make a great office staple. They're versatile and easy to wear, yet still look classic and elegant. Black is a safe color for shoes, as is nude. And while spending some extra money for a solid pair of work shoes that let you run from listing to listing can be a good investment, these low-heel pumps are inexpensive, well-reviewed, and still come in a variety of colors and sizes. For an example of an outfit in this series that incorporates another cute pair of pumps, see Real Estate Agent Dress Code: Holiday Work Outfit.
