Whether you’re a recent graduate ready to kick start your career, or an experienced professional in need of a weekday wardrobe update, there are certain pieces you can always count on for timeless 9-5 polish!
A SMART COAT
The first thing anyone will see is your coat – so make it memorable! I’d recommend a midi or maxi length wool coat; it gives an ultra-chic coverage to keep you warm and cosy, whilst still looking professional.
A WORK DRESS
A shirt dress is the ultimate transitional piece that you’ll wear time and time again. The clean cut lines, neat collar and high/low hemline on this style gives it a beautiful contemporary yet professional feel. I also love the mid-calf length and full skirt – its incredibly flattering!
So many of us (me included) resort to wearing a black dress in the colder months. Yes, they are incredibly smart and stylish but whites, greys, berries and reds can be so much more interesting! Why not try incorporating different colours into your work wardrobe this season?
A PAIR OF HEELS
Any outfit can be elevated with a chic heel. Classic colours like black or nude are best for a simple yet stylish look and will easily pair well with any outfit combination. I prefer to wear stiletto heels with a pointed toe, as they create a sharper silhouette and instantly make my legs appear longer!
A ‘CARRY ALL’ HANDBAG
A ‘carry all’ handbag is an absolute essential for long days in and out of the office. This spacious top handle day bag from Debenhams is suitable for both work and play. Its got multiple compartments to keep everything organised, a zip closure for added security and an optional shoulder strap which is both versatile and comfortable.
