Your workwear wardrobe can affect your confidence and as a result your performance. Invest in these key pieces and you’ll be rocking those meetings like no one’s business.
What is it they say? Dress for the job you want, not the one you have? This can feel like a real conundrum, especially in summer. How do you embrace the season at work without compromising the corporate dress code? A formal pinstriped trouser paired with a pop of colour in a conservative silhouette. Yellow silk cotton top, €160; pinstriped trousers, €170; both at LK Bennett.
Make The Cut
Adding personality to your workwear can be as simple as swapping your standard black tote for a more unique hold-all.
This gorgeous bag from online retailer Uterqüe offers colour and texture in one chic shopper that’s large enough to comfortably carry a tablet.
It also doubles as a crossbody bag for convenience; cut-work leather tote, €199 at uterque.com.
We’re always on the lookout for chic new labels that will enhance our workwear wardrobes, and new London brand Kitri has caught our attention for its directional shirts and smart trousers. The online retailer has pitched itself somewhere between Zara and Whistles price-wise, which certainly makes it worth trying out, especially given that it boasts high-quality, well-made pieces as its point of difference. If you like finerylondon.com, then Kitri will likely appeal to your aesthetic. Visit kitristudio.eu to view the full collection.
