5 PIECES TO INCORPORATE IN YOUR WORK WARDROBE TO MAKE IT SUMMER READY

6/15/2016


It's summer  - temperatures are soaring high, and wearing that grey pant suit just doesn't seem like a viable option anymore, especially since you and I both know that presenting a polished look at work is as high on the agenda as actually doing a great job. 

Because here's the thing ladies : like it or not, how you look and present yourself professionally is crucial in curating an impeccable Personal Brand at work, and one that'll be conducive in helping you succeed in climbing that ever elusive career ladder we all aspire to.

So, what better way to do it than in these 5 stylish Must-Have pieces that'll sure update your working wardrobe to super chic in minutes while you're busy working your way up that career ladder!

And here's how you do it...

1. INVEST IN A PAIR OF CULOTTES

Instead of your typical tailored pant suit, swap those for culottes. This is a surefire way to transcend from fashion novice straight  to style maven in a heartbeat!  
My fave at the moment are these  flowy  pair from River Island. Pair these with a slick white cami' and you've got yourself a super chic ensemble to wear to work for this kind of weather.


2. INCORPORATE AN OF-THE-SHOULDER TOP FOR A COOL EASY VIBE


Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that summer '16 s hottest fashion trend is off the shoulder! Everyone who's anyone is busy embracing the cold shoulder; and rightly so! This is 2016's hottest fashion trend no doubt. 
So make sure you invest in one, but  beware that you style it in an office appropriate manner. Too much off the shoulder may look a little too inappropriate for work. 
A good trick to remember is to bear in mind that the lower the top goes off the shoulder, the more inappropriate it'll look for work.
 So stick with ones that aren't too off the shoulder and you'll be alright. 


3. DEFINITELY GET A TAILORED LONGLINE WAISTCOAT TO CREATE A MORE POLISHES WORK LOOK.

This is one way to incorporate tailoring into your work wear  without compromising on your style credentials. 
My fave at the moment is this white longline vest from Zara. It's on trend, tailored;  plus it's versatile enough to work with almost anything in your wardrobe. 
This is a Must-Have in my opinion!


4.  GET A CRISP WHITE SHIRT
Nothing says office chic like a crisp white shirt. 
Investing in one is actually a smart move 'cause you know this is the one piece of clothing you'll be wearing all year round plus; a crisp white shirt never really goes out of fashion, does it?!


5. INVEST IN SOME LACE-UP BALLERINAS

This is tricky because one is never really sure whether to wear open-toed shoes to the office or not; especially in summer. So to mitigate this mini conundrum, invest in these super cute Ballerinas with straps  from Zara. They'll effeminately carry you from summer into autumn with ease, and not to mention in pure style. 
These are a summer work wear Must-Have for sure!
