You work hard enough, so deciding what to wear every morning should be hassle free and easy. Trying to balance family, commitments, work and looking the part can be a lot to think about before your first cuppa. But following these simple tips to build the perfect work wardrobe will make getting ready in the morning a little easier (go on, hit that snooze button one more time!).
1. Build a wardrobe of classic, timeless pieces
Let’s start at the beginning – a strong foundation is at the core of any great work wardrobe. Tailored pants, structured jackets, and simple blouses are styles that will never go out of fashion. Investing in quality pieces that will last the distance means that over time you’ll build a really great collection you can work with. Opt for styles in a neutral colour palette that can be outfitted with ease– black, navy, grey, camel and white are all colours you’ll wear season after season.
2. Mix and match like a pro
Now you have the basics, it’s time to add in a few statement pieces to pair with them. Prints, bold colours and more ‘trend-led’ styles are perfect items to have in your wardrobe to inject a little life (and personality) into your look. It’s amazing how a new top can transform a suit you’ve had for years.
3. Try a dress (AKA the ‘one-and-done’ outfit)
When you’re having one of those mornings and can’t possibly think about putting an outfit together, we have the answer: a dress. Every work wardrobe needs a great dress or two at the ready. Simply throw on, match with a pair of heels and you’re good to go. (We’ll give you bonus points for adding a blazer and a slick of lipstick!)
