Never buy a ‘work only’ wardrobe item again.

30 APR - 2021

When I was in primary school I distinctly remember the dream I had of walking up Queen Street to my high-rise office dressed in a pencil skirt and sexy heels. Hell, was I influenced by TV as a child or what?!

Rather than wanting to be drawn into the fast-paced corporate world, I think my yearning was more for a stunning work wardrobe than anything else. I’ve since come to learn you can achieve this with a little less pencil skirt and a lot less office drama.

Funnily enough I don’t work in an office. I now work from spots around my house, following the sun. In this permanent WFH life, I’ve totally given up on the idea of getting fully dressed every morning (unless it’s a zoom meeting, but we all know that means just the top half!) In spite of this, I’ve continued to fawn over screenshots of clothes that sit in my google drive, so I’m bringing them out for you!

My number one rule for workwear shopping is that if I wouldn’t wear it in my normal day-to-day, I don’t buy it. Your work wardrobe needs to still feel professional, without it being a whole different you.

Be the best dressed everyday of the working week.

Esse Puff Sleeve Top, $350

Shirts don’t have to be boring, and this one is so versatile! I love the puff sleeve that brings a little extra element to your look. This would go perfectly from the office to drinks!

Never Fully Dressed Vegan Leather Wrap Skirt, $245

A leather skirt can easily work from season to season. With heels or boots, camis or sweaters.

Staud Shirt Dress, $325

A shirt dress is by far my best cost-per-wear item. By adding a different belt and shoe you can entirely change the look.

Anine Bing Blazer, from $600

You can never have too many blazers, I repeat, never too many blazers. Anine nails this department over and over. Tailoring is definitely her speciality.

Henne Petra Tank, $139

There’s something about the cross strap that elevates the look entirely. The Petra tank is an easy day-to-night vibe, and goes well under a white oversized shirt.

Deadly Ponies Crush Tote, $899

There’s something powerful about having a stylish work tote. Leave the ugly laptop bags at home. Even though I WFH, I still have this tote for meetings. The dividers are the perfect size, and your 13” Macbook will slot in perfectly.

Tony Bianco Ruiz Loafer, $199

As much as I’d love a pair of Dior loafers, Amex says otherwise. The gold detailing helps steer clear of the Nana zone!

Country Road Button Through Knit Dress, $259

One of the best knit maxi dresses I’ve come across as it doesn’t cling to the body too much, having a slight flare at the bottom. My top tip: wait until Country Road have a spend and save on!

The Bea pants are the perfect high waisted silhouette and go with everything! They come in a range of colours from the classic white, black and navy to melon, browns and forest. The Frankie Shop also have a matching Bea Blazer.

Dylan Kain The Heidi Belt, $219

You can’t go wrong with a classic leather belt. It can help dress up and outfit for work, without going too over the top for your next corporate meeting. The belt is also one of those items you can easily wear all the time, whether it’s for work or not!
