The Wardrobe’s mission is to combat clothing insecurity, so that women in need can reenter the workforce with confidence.

The Wardrobe, a local nonprofit organization with locations in Exton and Kennett Square, celebrated National Smart and Sexy Day, writes Racquel Williams for KYW Newsradio.

The Wardrobe provides women in need with appropriate work and job interview attire. 

“You want to feel good in what you’re wearing in order to show up for work, but you also always have to think about, how are people seeing you?” said Mars Sharrock, the Program Director. “How are people perceiving you, especially when we’re talking about a job interview? And remember … their job in that room is to judge you.” 

Feeling confident in your clothing will help you sit still, stand tall, and appear ready for the job.  

The Wardrobe is dedicated to eliminating clothing insecurity and understands the pressures that women face as they reenter the workforce. The program gives women autonomy and allows them to shop with dignity.  

“Any woman can come in and get a free bra fitting with a free bra as well as clothing for their job interview or for their general life,” Sharrock added. “And when we say women, we mean all women — trans women included — are able to move forward in their jobs, because historically that has been a struggle.”
