On some mornings pushing your hair into a messy bun, shimmying into an old shrunken dress and throwing on a pair of tired lace ups feels like the only option. With mouths to feed and kids to dress, it’s easy to put your business look on the back burner.
But what if we told you there was a sure fire way to look a million bucks each and every working day?
Outdated suits jackets and faded black trousers that drag on the floor really aren’t selling your persona, skills and professionalism- so turn up the heat with these must have business staples and never mismatch tattered threads again!
Whether you’re looking to spice up your work wear wardrobe or are just starting out in the business arena, we’ve got a little something for every businesswoman.
But first, here are some simple tips to keep in mind when choosing your wardrobe staples.
While one-figure price tags may have their appeal for dress up parties, ensure that your business fashion pieces are in it for the long haul. By investing in some spesh staples to mix and match, you’ll ensure that value is at an all time high and that these clever additions to your ‘drobe will look fab with any piece.
GET THE FIT
As the saying goes, if the shoe doesn’t fit – don’t waste your dollars! Or something like that. You may have fallen in love with a burgundy high waisted trouser, but if it’s the last one on the rack and not in your size, leave it be and have faith that your dream piece is waiting for you elsewhere.
BASIC VS STATEMENT
Mix basics and statement pieces throughout your business collection. A sophisticated charcoal blazer teamed with your favourite Aztec print skirt is sure to raise envious eyebrows at your next corporate meeting. Kick Plain Jane to the curb – you’re Snazzy Jazzy now!
WIDE LEG PANTS
Long or cropped, plain or patterned, the wide legged goodness of these versatile trousers never goes out of style. Teamed with a tee for a casual look or button up blouse to give it a professional edge – wide leg pants are where the honey is!
Oozing playfulness and adding a touch of sass, a well fitted pencil or flair skirt is the coolest wardrobe staple and business essential for casual consultations and workplace fashion.
PUSSY BOW BLOUSE
Classically timeless, a simple pussy bow blouse with long or short sleeves is the perfect blank canvas to work any business outfit around.
A handbag in a conventional tone such as camel, grey or black is a foolproof way to ensure that it matches every outfit of a similar palette. Alternatively, turn your handbag into a statement piece by accessorizing to the max.
SQUARE HEELED BOOT
No matter your style, a low heeled boot ups the ante of every look. Dressing down floaty outfits and adding oomph to professional office wear, the square heeled boot is definitely made for walking and an added bonus? Style never felt so comfortable.
