It’s looking fairly likely that in the next few weeks I’ll once again be working for a living … groan! So I thought a little look at the working wardrobe might be a good idea for todays ‘fashion fiesta’.
I have a few favourite stores for my working wardrobe staples; Cos, Whistles, Topshop and increasingly the online store Asos.
This look from Whistles pretty much sums up my work uniform, it’s normally a pair of peg trousers, a top, a jacket or blazer. I don’t do ‘matchy matchy’ suits and tend to top each look off with a large statement necklace and a pair of brogues (oxfords).
Here are a few working wardrobe items that I’m loving at the moment ….
This Paisley Print Blouse from Mango has a great splash of neon and would bring a plain black outfit alive.
I love the tough toe caps on these Brogues from Cos ….
There are still a lot of school satchel style bags in the shops. These two from Asos and Warehouse respectively are fun ….
Back to Whistles again. They have released a jumper, shirt, shift dress, trousers and top all in a Woodgrain print. I want everything but have limited myself to the silk top.
Finally, how about this shirt from Asos for a splash of emerald green ….
I do believe that what you wear can affect how you carry yourself and in my work as a freelance consultant it’s important that I both look the part and feel confident.
