We spend more time wearing our workwear wardrobe, so it’s only right that we give it a regular revamp. Thankfully, long gone are the days when workwear was restrictive, with the office dress code being a bit more relaxed we can choose whether we want to go down the power dressing route or keep our attire more understated and casual. Regardless of which aesthetic you gravitate towards there are a selection of key pieces every woman needs in her wardrobe.
You can’t go wrong with flattering cigarette trousers. Opt for a slightly cropped and neutral coloured pair like the Esprit chino’s (pictured above) and wear with a crisp white shirt or an edgy top for a smart look that says you mean business.
Compatible with every outfit choice, black pumps are a workwear wardrobe staple. Invest in a quality pair of mid-heels as chances are you’ll be wearing them daily. We love these simple and sophisticated court shoes by Gianvito Rossi.
The ideal dress should take you from the boardroom to the bar effortlessly. Bare this in mind when updating your workwear dress collection and aim for tailored on-trend pieces that can be dressed up or down with the right accessories.
Tough yet sexy and oozing tons of attitude, the leather midi skirt is a must-have for your winter and spring wardrobe. Team with a loose fitting knit, tucked in and cinched at the waist with a skinny belt and your trusted black pumps.
No workwear wardrobe is complete without a fitted blazer. They’re a lifesaver when you’re in desperate need of pulling an otherwise casual outfit together. Finding a well fitting blazer can be quite tricky, however. It’s worth taking some time to source a jacket that complements your shape beautifully.
Our favourite key piece? The bag. It can instantly give an outfit life. Tired of the traditional black bag? Go for a tan tote, it’s not only perfect for the office but can be used at the weekends too. Do a little research into when your fave designer is hosting their next handbag sale and invest in a quality bag to get the most bang for your buck.
