When it comes to workwear, communicating your capabilities through your outfit is essential. You’ll want to make sure that you look the part when dealing with your colleagues and clients, to inspire confidence and trust. Luckily, it’s the 21st century so you don’t have to feel stifled or look intimidating – especially not in these 3 easy office looks we’ve selected.
A strong professional look simultaneously has touches of femininity, ensuring you get the respect you deserve. The secret is to balance statement, boss-like pieces with items featuring softer structures and feminine details. You can also try adding softer colours like pinks and pastels in your bags and shoes. And while we’re on footwear, always wear something heeled, even if only kitten-heels.
