Given that we spend one third of our lives working, choosing what to wear requires careful consideration. We don’t want to feel stuffy and uncomfortable but nor do we want to feel unoriginal. Plus – who wants to waste unnecessary time staring blankly into the wardrobe abyss when we could have 10 extra minutes in bed each morning?? The key is to find effortlessly chic pieces that interchange seamlessly with the rest of our wardrobes – and in our NEW video, we’ve take this season’s hero item – the shirt and styled it three ways…
Let’s start with the deconstructed shirt – a total must-have, this is one piece that will work hard for your wardrobe. It’ll elevate your look in seconds with its off-shoulder style, front fold and pocket detail giving your outfit a truly effortless feel. We’re wearing it with a cream blazer and office-appropriate sporty trousers. Ribbon-tie heels and a mono tote bag give this look all the credentials you need to pull off power dressing.
Option two masters the art of layering. We’ve taken a fluted sleeve blouse and popped it under a navy wrap dress. Solo, both of these items are key – but together they create a considered pairing that adds interest – not to mention an extra outfit variation to your wardrobe. To offset the safe cream/navy combo, we’ve added some killer red heels for an extra boost of female empowerment… because why not!
Lastly, we’ve tapped into this season’s penchant for a neutral palette – taking our lace shirt and teaming it with a khaki utility skirt. Be sure to tuck the shirt in so that it flatters the figure and streamlines your silhouette. If you’re prone to feeling chilly in the office our catwalk-inspired longline cardi is the perfect solution – just add heels to give your look some height, not to mention leg-lengthening appeal!
