Summer up your workwear wardrobe
Posted on 19 September 2015
No matter if you work a nine til five in the office, are the boss of the boardroom, run from meetings on one side of town to the other, are the intern collecting coffee orders or are out and about all day everyday we have put together a collection of ways to bring more style to your work!
Here at Fashionlife we know how important workwear can be and that a first impression is everything. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first day on the job or you've hit the 20 year milestone how you look every morning when you arrive at work is essential! We also understand how hard it can be some days just to find anything to wear let alone put together a complete look! Which is exactly why we have put together a list of our favourite workwear pieces!
Lets start with the tops - for a pop of perfectly on point workplace colour you cannot look past the Orion Top in cobalt from Staple + Cloth or the Flection Top from Karen Walker. Both of these tops look great paired with trousers, a black skirt, heels, flats and your favourite accessories! For something neutral and sleek why not try the Bow back top from Staple + Cloth in either ivory or silver or the Grace Tank from Julian Danger. These tops look great paired with a skirt, a pair of heels and your favourite accessories and create a sleek, seriously chic workwear look.
Now that it’s starting to get warmer it’s time to get those lovely legs out (after a tan of course) and what better way than with the Alice Skirt from Julian Danger in white or lemon or the Liberty Skirt from Karen Walker! These lighter colours add some Summer freshness to your workwear wardrobe and help you transition away from those darker Winter colours (although a black skirt is still a classic piece!). Alternatively the Naomi Trouser or the Lisette Pants make for a chic trouser look!
For a top to toe look the Lily dress in either the simply chic white or the luscious pop of lemon is a perfect workwear piece. Paired with your favourite flats or heels and accessories this dress is boardroom perfect or about town ready - not to mention the way it effortlessly transitions from workwear to lunch or cocktails!

Don’t forget accessories - these are as important as that morning cup of coffee! We love the Glory Rose and Broken Heart Brooches from Karen Walker - they add just the right amount of sparkle to your outfit and they’re sure to make you the envy of everyone over morning tea! Or for some more subtle sparkle why not try the Knot Ring or Bangle or the Diamante Bracelet from Trelise Cooper. These pieces will go perfectly with any workwear outfit and are sure to spark more conversation than the Kardashians over morning tea.
Last but not least you need the ever important clutch - something to hold the keys, phone, lippy, business cards and coffee money! Why not carry it all in style with either the black or the camel Isla Clutch from Julian Danger?! These clutches are the perfect size and will look great with all of your office ensembles!
