And, these are designed specifically for working women. This is the go-to gear all pros should have at the ready.
Made in St. Paul, Minnesota, the new Chinook Hoody from Corbeaux Clothing was designed with a high neck to specifically combat windy conditions.

The new Holier Than Thou Work Belt from Duluth Trading has prong holes all the way around for a comfy fit, even over layered pants in the cooler months. The belt is also USA-made and features a solid-brass buckle for style and durability and rounded edges that won’t dig in. Here is our best collection of essential construction clothing and gear.
