Office Chic


I have recently been invited to a number of interviews and the first thing that crossed my mind was what to wear; there really are some awful two-pieces out there.  But workwear doesn’t have to be dull, you can tweak some of the trendiest pieces to make them office appropriate.

1. This Ted Baker suit is very striking. It’s well tailored with a curved lapel that accentuates the bust and brings in the waist. It would look perfect with a white silk blouse. If you want to make an impact, and not to be forgotten, wear it with these bright red accessories.

  • St. Laurent, Red Leather Tote

  • Vince Camuto, Kain, Court Shoes 

2. A more understated and practical approach to work wear. This classic, high-waisted skirt,  gives the structure of a tailored skirt with none of the discomfort; perfect for the commuter. Paired with a classic feminine blouse and loafers the outfit has a parisian edge. To keep off the winter chill, top it off with a nice trench.

  • Baukjen, High Waisted Pencil Skirt
  • L.K Bennet, Loafers 
  • Ted Baker, Tote Bag
  • Olivia Burton, Watch 
  • Mango, Trench Coat


3. The power play. For the  business women looking to assert her dominance, I’ve chosen this stylish colour-block Reed Krakoff dress. I’d recommend styling its flattering silhouette with a structured blazer to show you mean business.
