How To Refresh Your Workwear

Updating your workwear can be tricky. In between perfecting smart-casual dressing for the season and trying to add some individuality to your look, it can feel easier to settle for the same old outfits you wear week after week.

Even so, since your workwear wardrobe is the one you frequently wear, it’s worth spending some time making sure you look and feel your best.

Luckily, refreshing your nine-to-five look doesn’t need to cost a fortune. From taking full advantage of accessories to investing in one brilliant blazer and trying out a new skirt, we have plenty of ways to give your workwear the wow factor.

1. Say Yes To A Skirt

If you’re getting tired of the typical trousers and shirt combination, you can mix things up by throwing a skirt into your weekly rotation. While midi skirts are very much the style of the season, you can also bring a boho-vibe to the office with a maxi or midaxi design.

Got a big meeting on the cards? Opt for a colour that’s going to give you a boost of confidence, like one of our bright satin-look skirts.

2. Business-Ready Blazers

The best thing about blazers is that they can make even the most casual of clothing look and feel smart. Whether that’s culottes and a summer top or your favourite jumpsuit, throwing on a blazer will make you feel ready for Monday morning before you know it.

While neutral tones will match practically every outfit you own, you can also make your blazer the star of the show by choosing fun prints and patterns like houndstooth, checks and polka dots.

And, with the weather currently too warm for chunky jumpers and coats, a blazer is the ideal lightweight jacket.

3. Work Your Work Dress

If you’re after workwear that provides maximum impact with minimum effort, then a work dress is the way to go. Not only can you throw on a dress without having to search for matching items, but it’s an unbeatable choice for the summer months.

But if you’re worried that a formal dress also means a boring one, think again. For a flattering and fashionable pick, why not try a wrap dress? Easily worn with flats or heels, a wrap dress is as comfy as it is stylish.

4. All About Accessories

To update your work wardrobe for half the cost, try refreshing your accessories. Whether that’s a brand new bag or a colour-pop scarf, there are plenty of affordable and chic ways to take your outfit to the next level.
