If you’re planning a new corporate wardrobe, consider some of these pieces to create a versatile workday closet for your female staff.
A good quality blazer stands out and can elevate any outfit into professional attire. Excellent tailoring should ensure that it is fitted, flattering and doesn’t restrict movement. Choose a neutral colour to get plenty of wear out of it.
A simple dress which is well-cut and made from a good quality fabric always looks stylish and polished. Choose a plain colour as it is not as memorable as a pattern and can be dressed up or down with the addition of different accessories.
Quality and cut is key to a great pair of slacks for the office. Well-fitting but not too tight is essential and ensuring that they are hemmed at the right length ensures you look put together.
Again, choose a good fit that is flattering, and a skirt will always be office-appropriate. Knee length is best and fabric with a bit of stretch ensures comfort. A pencil skirt is a great choice and instantly makes any top look smart.
A Collared, Button-Up Shirt
You can’t go wrong with this workwear staple. A crisp, collared, button-up shirt looks good with trousers or a skirt and can be clean-lined and classic or have a bit of a twist with a ruffle, pussy-bow or cross-over detail.
A Few Different Blouses
Think variety in colour and style. Long sleeved, short sleeved, flared, fitted, ruffled, boat-necked or embellished they should all be smart and made from good quality fabric which won’t stretch out of shape in the wash. Be sure to avoid see-through fabrics and spaghetti straps unless you’ll be wearing your blouse under a jacket.
