Business Attire For Women
Business attire for women is challenging isn’t it?
We want to look ‘assertive’ whilst retaining our femininity, we’re often expected to *literally* run around in heels and what is it with that little voice that continually tells us to elevate our personal brand… but what does that really look like and why is it so important?

I know that many people that work for you and with you (and maybe you yourself?) struggle on a daily basis with how to present themselves in a professional yet appropriate way, particularly with the relaxing of business wear and the new “dress for your day ahead” guideline which is very much open to interpretation.
We know that staff are most productive when they’re happy and confident, not when they turn up to the office feeling rattled and looking substandard, particularly disappointing when they need to be representing your company dna.
I’m a Sydney personal stylist who can take ALL that stress, frustration and anxiety away for everyone in your business. Let me show you how….
1/ LAW FIRM – INTIMATE PERSONAL SHOPPER EVENING:
Personal Shopper : Corporate Clothing
This particular evening was an intimate personal shopping event at an award-winning law firm, presenting a hand picked capsule wardrobe to female executives from leading blue chip companies.
This was my exclusive 16 piece office wear capsule wardrobe I presented, so guess how many corporate outfits I created? …drum roll please….
** 16 PIECES = 150 BUSINESS OUTFITS!!! **
YOU DON’T NEED LOADS OF CLOTHES – YOU JUST NEED THE RIGHT ONES!!
Wear these 150 outfits x twice a year = 1 year of office outfits!!
Office Wear For Women – Group Styling
I showed my audience of female executives how this interesting capsule wardrobe full off stripes, florals and colour, mix & match’s effortlessly!! (no boring black & white here!!).
Prices range from $40 – $550 and if that doesn’t suit your budget, I’ll show you alternatives that will!
I know from experience as a personal stylist that when you SHOW clients how, it becomes easy right? No need to stress!! I do it all for you, creating your outfit photos to select from every single morning.

How To Get More Outfits From Your Office Wear
As a creative fashion stylist, I think outside the box to create unique, stylish business attire for women.
How To Re-Style What You Already Own
Take a look at this example (it’s worth it I promise, despite the less-than-flattering thumbnail!) that helps those of you who wear your corporate suit less and less these days – and with the introduction of relaxed office environments, that’s MOST of my working clients!
See, you can create modern ‘smart-casual office wear that flatters your body type without it looking dated or stuffy!!
How To Re-Purpose What You Already Own
And in this age of sustainable fashion, why not try re-purposing something you already own to save you money and time?
It’s amazing how much harder you can make your wardrobe work, isn’t it? Just consider the reduced cost-per-wear!!
Exclusive Corporate Style Guide
During the evening, we problem-solved any work wear dilemma with more than a few champagne-fulled laughs along the way, topped off with a beautiful goodie bag containing a bespoke style booklet that I created exclusively for the event!!
This corporate style guide is the difference between ‘getting dressed’, and looking ‘well dressed’.
I problem solve using clothes!

Work-shopping 1:1 With Clients
I’ve relished working with some of these women during 1:1 work shopping and this was the feedback after one client underwent the Full Makeover :
“ Just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for such a great service! I feel on-trend, beautiful and stylish, can’t wait to play with all the other options! “
Group General Counsel
…and the view wasn’t bad either 😉
Contact me to discuss YOUR business and how I can design a style workshop to fulfill your corporate needs
Here’s some other workshops I’ve had the pleasure of hosting:
2/ SALESFORCE ENTERPRISE BUSINESS LADIES LUNCHEON:
Women In Leadership
B2B : I demonstrated how my personal styling business can support and enhance their staff’s personal brand to better represent themselves and the companies they work for, delivering practical style solutions to office wear problems. Happy, confident staff are productive staff!
B2C : I also explained how my services reduce the amount of decisions these busy women make every week and how I literally give them back hours in their day.
I felt equally as inspired getting to chat to (and laugh with) such an impressive group of female leaders.
3/ WSP ENGINEERING FIRM PRESENTATION:
With more and more businesses thinking they’re doing the ‘right thing’ by relaxing their office dress code, I’m regularly hearing from confused, stressed clients struggling to understand what ‘business casual’ actually looks like.
Evolving business expectations, means evolving your ‘uniform’
WSP, one of the world’s leading engineering professional services consulting firms in Sydney CBD invited me to chat to their staff.
I offered practical style tips including visual examples to show male and female employees how to create ‘business casual’ looks, whilst elevating their personal brand.
It’s simple when you know how.
Style advice staff can action RIGHT AWAY relevant for todays evolving office environment.
In a world advancing at the quickest rate in history, don’t look like you’re being left behind.
We all need a gentle reminder about how we dress in the work place because it’s human nature to make judgements about each other based on the way we present ourselves.
It’s my job to ensure you put your best foot forward.
Thanks for the invite WSP!
