The weather in Johannesburg has been wet and cold over the past few days and all I really want to do is stay in bed and binge watch series and create my month end wishlist but with the Easter weekend behind us, it’s back to the reality of work, school and normal life.
Fortunately, payday is around the corner for most which means you can treat yo’self to some work wear that will make you excited about getting back into the swing of things.
My expectation for work wear is that it has to work for you for as long as possible and that is why I always recommend quality over quantity. This however does not mean breaking the bank but choosing clothing that see you through at least two seasons.
The best place to start with a working wardrobe is with functional classics such as pinned stripes, checks and neutral tones. From that foundation you can always add a touch of colour textures and some print variations.
These are five of my work wardrobe selections to make Monday to Friday dressing a little bit easier and cuter, of course.
Monday: Mondays are all about structure and how you start your day often sets the tone for the week. Kick off your week with perennial classics and pair of PLUM tonal sling backs for the ultimate fresh start.
Tuesday: Tuesdays are for adding layers of texture. To me, animal textured ankle boots, a faux fur coat and satin scarf all sound like a winning combination for the perfect Tuesday feeling.
Wednesday: Brighten you midweek up with blooming florals and a touch of pink. Pair it all with slim black pants and comfortable ankle boots from Cotton On.
Thursday: Add light neutral tones to warm you up to the weekend.
Friday: Frinally!!! The day that marks the beginning of the weekend and maybe even a little less rigidness to the office dress code rules. Edge out of the work week and ease into the weekend in a generous knit and a touch of faux leather and mock croc.
