When women think office and corporate wear, it’s easy to fall into the trap of simply donning a suit and a shirt. The combination certainly fits the bill and won’t offend any company dress policy. But is it really helping you to get noticed?
With a little thought and preparation, it is possible to create a working wardrobe that is functional but also turns heads … for all the right reasons.
As the weather cools, this is the ideal time to re-invent your corporate look. This season is all about layering and contrasting textures, utilising neutral hues such as charcoal with splashes of winter colours. Think purple, burgundy, red and magenta.
Create an individual look by starting with a suiting basic such as a pair of classic cut black pants. Add to it a silk top and layer over the top a belted, long knit. Need your outfit to take you from day to night? This is often the case for busy executives who need to rush from a boardroom meeting to a cocktail networking function – all the in the course of one day.
