Trawling the latest fashion blogs to find the pièce de résistance of your workwear wardrobe?
We get it! Channelling your inner boss babe is always easier when you’re in an outfit you love. Whether you’re dressing for the office, job interviews or simply navigating a workplace with a more conservative dress code than you’re used to, there’s always some room to play.
So you can give up trawling fashion blogs to find what you need, here are 10 tops to help you get through that 9 to 5 grind in style.
The Elevated White Shirt
If your classic white shirt just isn’t doing it for you anymore, it’s time to pump up the volume. A white shirt with puffed sleeves, ruffles or an exaggerated collar offers endless layering possibilities, keeping the piece fresh throughout the seasons.
Pussybow blouses in pastel hues make for a dreamy, subtle workwear statement piece. Style with netural colours or commit fully to a head-to-toe pastel palette.
The best way to get over a workwear hurdle when you’re anything but corporate is to find a print you love in a workplace appropriate cut. Hello, vintage-inspired everything.
A must-have in your sartorial arsenal, the turtleneck is one of the most versatile pieces for any occasion. You’ll be glad to have invested in a good quality turtleneck when you pop out for your lunch break on chillier days.
The Luxe Pyjama Top
Beloved by fashion blogs, the silky pyjama look as a daywear piece has definitely gained popularity over the last couple of years. Wearing a sleepwear inspired co-ord set might make you feel a little too relaxed in the workplace, but pairing just a shirt with some tailored trousers will do the trick.
The Corporate Crop
Cropped blazers offer a corporate spin on a playful cut, and the styling possibilities are endless.
For those less inclined to play it safe in the workwear game, modern animal print is your new best friend. Not recommended if you’ve missed a deadline and need to avoid your boss.
The Summer Staple
Keeping cool while feeling comfortably covered on warmer days at the office can be a tricky task. A gathered sleeveless top adds some interest to an otherwise simple silhouette.
The Elevated White Shirt, Again
If the standard white shirt is too drab but you’re not about that ruffled life, there’s always a middle ground. You’ll be surprised how much difference a change in cut or silhouette can have on your overall look.
Corporate cut, glossy finish. Patent finishes can amp up an otherwise expected silhouette.
