Working from work is back!
It’s time to peel off your #wfh trackkies and don your office wear fashion style once again!!
*cue happy dance*
And working as a personal shopper, I’ve witnessed just how versatile this butterscotch shade is.
It’s a rich hue, contemporary yet timeless and as a Colour Consultant, I know it flatters every season on the colour wheel!
The really modern way to wear butterscotch is tonally in 1 outfit like the above image however, it’s easy and still impactful to pair with white, red, navy, salmon pink and soft blue
Office Wear For Women in 2022
But business attire for women has changed during the years we’ve been cooped up and I’ve been working with clients to create stylish, yet comfortable, new corporate wardrobes.
The NEW Corporate Dress
When personal shopping office wear for women, I’ve actually banned the words “CORPORATE CLOTHING” and replaced them with the buzzwords:
“POLISHED, PROFESSIONAL yet RELAXED”
As that’s how ALL of my working clients currently want to look, male or female.
The words ‘corporate clothing’ brings with it connotations of being stuffy, uncomfortable and outdated. And no-one wants to look like that.
Elevate Your Personal Branding
Here’s my personal shopper edit of the 8 fashion styles that would instantly update your business wear closet AND your personal branding that share key characteristics:
- you’ll be wearing season after season
Office Wear For Women
My fashion tips for items you need in your wardrobes Sydney!
I include a couple of options of skirt, coatigan and shoe depending on your personal style, ’cause that’s the kinda personal stylist I am 😉
(clockwise from bottom left)
1/. TRENERY A LINE LEATHER SKIRT $600
This limited edition design is flattering for all female body types with stunning gold hard wear
Add a narrow belt to complete your office wear look, or pair with a white sneaker & t-shirt for weekend
Generous in size so go 1 size down and remember, leather will give a little during wear
2/. WITCHERY DOUBLE BREASTED BLAZER $300
With some stretch in for all day comfort, this also prevents creasing.
This blazer pairs with jeans as effortlessly as your *old school* corporate clothing would
Traditional stab stitch detail along collar, longer in length it covers your bottom
Even the refined gold buttons don’t need changing like some on the high street!
Generous in size so try 1 or 2 sizes down and wear undone to flatter most
3/. CAMILLA & MARC NIKA KNIT FLARE PANT $450
Stretchy knit, yet sharp in style, you won’t want to take these off!
Works effortlessly from office-to-home so you get twice the wear for your money
Because they’re knitted they expand with you, helpful if you tend to fluctuate throughout the month/year
4/. PORTMANS SUNNY CARDIGAN $120 on sale
Chic coatigan that’s long, cosy and works across all lifestyle areas.
The oversized shawl collar looks very designer
It’s a perfect trans-seasonal weight at an amazing price!
Also comes in 2 other colours, pinot & black and you’d be surprised how versatile the pinot is!
5/. SEED WOOL BOYFRIEND COAT $350
Unlined which means you wear it for longer through the year and because of the easy fit, you can also layer under it if you do need more warmth!
These coats add a premium finish to the most casual of outfits but the unstructured style means you’ll never look overdressed
Turn back cuff if too sleeve too long
6/. SPORTSCRAFT FLEUR LEATHER SKIRT $400
This fuller A line shape is really feminine.
Again really flattering on all female body types and a little longer than the Trenery style, helpful if you’re taller in height
Soft and supple leather quality moves with your body
7/. NINE WEST FLAT BRINKS LEATHER SHOE $170
Yes, you read right, a FLAT shoe!
It’s stylish, comfortable and often the exact style most of my clients are missing from their wardrobes because covid has made many women question why they’ve ever worn heels?
However, there are clients that still prefer a heel so Nine West offer a stiletto version too for $180 (so technically this heel is 7/. b. Ha)
The really clever part is that both these shoes have a feature on them that isn’t metal so you can pair with the metal shade that flatters you most
8/. MAISON CASHMERE TURTLE NECK $177
If you haven’t worn cashmere yet, you NEED to start!
A turtle neck feels so luxurious around your neck.
This is a 2 ply and made in Italy so it’s a little more expensive than Uniqlo where I usually recommend for cashmere, but clients have loved Maison Cashmere.
