Autumn is the season for fresh starts, and many people have gone back to work or education.
While going back to work may be dreary for some, it doesn’t have to be that way for your work outfit! It great to look good at all times and perhaps now is the time for you to update your wardrobe and add some wonderful pieces to make your stand out in the workplace!
Here are five essential fashion staples for your chic and stylish working wardrobe.
1. Tote bag
The tote bag is the perfect bag for work. It’s stylish, has plenty of compartments for your items and it’s great for keeping documents and your laptop.
2. Court heels
It’s important to have your footwear on point when working in a professional environment, but you don’t have to wear high-heeled shoes. If you want a pair of shoes that are not flat but are not high either, then consider getting yourself a pair of court heels.
Commonly worn by the Duchess of Cambridge when attending royal engagements, court heeled shoes are perfect as they have a short heel and they are formal, so you don’t have to deal with achy feet at the end of the day. Plus, even though court heels are formal (and great for corporate environments), they can also be styled with smart-casual outfits.
3. Mac coat
It’s that time of year again: the summer is over, autumn is here and the weather is starting to get a little bit chilly. Get yourself a mac/trench coat – it’s the perfect coat to keep you looking sophisticated this season, especially when you are out and about and on your way to and from work.
Alternatively, treat yourself to a wool-blend coat and keep yourself warm, comfortable and snug on your commute to and from work.
4. White blouse
A white blouse may seem like such a simple top to wear, but if styled correctly, it can make your outfit look chic. For example, if you are dressing in a smart-casual manner, then style with a pair of black or dark blue skinny jeans and a pair of court heels. Wear a white blouse with additional textures (i.e. lace), patterns (i.e. floral embroidery) or decorations (i.e. studs) add more definition to your work look.
5. A pair of shades
No matter what time of year it is, a pair of shades is the perfect accessory! Invest in a pair of black shades, add to your go-to work bag and you are good to go! Sunglasses protect the eyes from the sun’s rays – which can damage the eyes – so, to be honest, you have absolutely no excuse not to have a pair with you at all times when you’re out of the home.
