Workwear Wardrobe

It’s that time of year again, where you’re gearing up to give your workwear wardrobe its annual autumn/winter overhaul. The days are definitely getting too much chilly for sleeveless blouses and dainty dresses (unless you’re going to wear them with a cuddly cardy of course)… But you still want to look stylish and sophisticated although you have to wrap up that little bit more! Well,  I’ve got you covered (literally). Here is my guide to Autumn/Winter Workwear.


No matter the season, monochrome will always be stylish. Invest in a timeless black dress, a tailored pair of black trousers and a stylish white shirt. Try to only choose styles that suits your body shape. For example, tailored A-Line pieces and anything that gives the waist definition look great on curvy women, while fitted styles that create the illusion of curves look great on petite ladies.

Grey and Blush 

You can always add a splash of colour to your monochrome separates. This will help you to create some different looks and adds dimension to your everyday wardrobe. Mix-and-match separates are a great way of creating a capsule wardrobe that works for you. Blush pinks and greys are great for this time of year, as technically it’s not quite Summer, not quite Autumn, and these colours work well in any season.

Autumnal Hues

You can also go all Autumnal with your colour palette. Burnt orange, teal and burgundy are huge this Autumn. Add accents of colour in your accessories if brights just aren’t your thing. A burnt orange handbag or a burgundy blazer will make your look more current. Also, some jewellery, like a statement necklace, some rings or a watch, can take your look to the next level.

Yes to the Dress

Easy dresses that can be thrown on first thing in the morning with a pair of tights, a cardy or a blazer are really handy pieces to have in your wardrobe. You can always wear them on their own in summer and they’re a great investment piece.
