Girl Boss


Whether your office is casual and creative, or buttoned-up and sophisticated, you can always bring a little touch of style and flair to your nine-to-five outfit. Smart wear is no longer about ill-fitting polyester suits and uncomfortable brown shoes. Instead, designers have transformed office wear into chic, glamorous pieces that are ideal for the all-important transition from office to cocktails come 5pm on Friday.

Pussybow shirts and wide-leg trousers are back on the scene, thanks to the ’70s trend making a major impact on the catwalks this season. Louis Vuitton, Chloe and Chanel all nailed the office workwear look on the runways, but for more accessible alternatives, look to TOPSHOP and Mango. Both have included great wide-legged silk pants and printed shirts that can easily be paired with a platform brogue. The white collared shirt — a fashionista’s wardrobe staple — was also hot on the runways — a versatile piece that it can be worn with boyfriend jeans, high-waisted skirt or under an A-line dress for a look that’s just as chic.

Follow these three style tips to ensure you’re the Girl Boss in your office.

1. Tailoring is key.

2. Keep the killer heels for the evening and go for a more demure shoe in the office (pointy flat brogues are key for Fall).

3. Don’t be afraid to go for colour or patterns; just keep it relatively under control.
