It’s February and time to flaunt an updated work wardrobe. Whether your job involves freelancing or a straight 9-5, these looks will have your colleagues gushing with compliments at the look and fit of your new ensemble. Quite frankly, your new powersuit is a better talking point in the office kitchen than Anne’s salad. Get on down to your nearest Foschini store for great women’s fashion must-haves.
STOCKING UP ON STAPLES
A good pantsuit will allow you to use your wardrobe to make a statement that symbolizes an empowering move to adopt the girl-meets-boy mode of dressing. The classic pantsuit doesn’t have to be stiff, bland, corporate and symbolic of a life chained to the office desk. Rock a bright pantsuit with a comfy T-shirt underneath or if you’re feeling daring, button up your jacket with a bralette underneath or none at all. Dressing down you power suit is a fresh take on a workwear classic.
Balling on a budget?
One or two carefully selected classic pieces can add much needed heat to your wardrobe staples – be that a hint of optic white, an inventive twist on the midi-length skirt hem and a range of basic T-shirts are all options you can pick from. Looking sharp comes with added benefits, you’ll easily be able to switch up your work-time look to night out on the town for happy hour or a dinner date.
The busy lives we lead mean that transitional outfits are essential. Floral appliqué on a grungy black leather jacket lends feminine charm and is the ultimate go to that will take you straight from the desk to drinks.
Don’t forget that accessories are as important as your workwear staples. Accessories complete the look, add interesting details to your outfit and make you look like the boss you are. Elegant accessories such as pearls, statement handbags, your favourite heels and a bold red lip on days when you’re feeling extra glam will have you looking chic.
