Did you know that the clothes we wear not only impact how others perceive us, but also affect our mood? It’s true! So why not put a little more thought and effort into our work outfits? After all, we spend so much time at our jobs.

If you find it challenging to dress for work, especially if your workplace has a mix of corporate and creative vibes, then creating a “capsule” collection can be a game changer.

What’s a capsule wardrobe you may ask? It’s a collection of key items, trend based pieces and your favourite accessories that can seamlessly transition from the boardroom to the bar. Trust me, it’s easier than it sounds!

To help you develop your own capsule work wardrobe, here are some tips to get you started.

Get your basic staples sorted, a tailored blazer and a high waisted trouser, choose the style based on your silhouette preferences. A crisp cotton shirt, a simple midi skirt or dress, a fine knit, plain tees, a silk blouse, kitten heel boot or pump, depending on your preference. These basic 10 pieces are enough to get you started. See our Tiktok above for the ultimate inspo!

Choose your colour palette. I find neutrals are safe choices, and can easily blend and mix, look at navy, black , grey and creams are all good base colours and you can always experiment with sorbet hues or bold jeweled colours.

Add your day to night accessories. Accessories are a must. Switching from sensible block heels to a barely there stiletto can take you from the office to after work drinks effortlessly. invest in versatile shoes that can work overtime.

When it comes to work bags and totes, there’s one thing they should always have in common, a perfect blend of function and style. After all, we need a bag that cann withstand the daily hustle and bustle while keeping us looking fabulous. So, if you’re on the hunt for your ideal work bag, here are some brands that tick all the boxes.

Cuyana, Longchamp and DeMellier are top contenders when it comes to durability and roominess. These brands understand the need for a bag that can effortlessly carry your laptop, portable coffee mug, notepad, and all your workwear essentials.

Remember, everything else is for fun! Mix and match your capsule pieces to create endless possibilities.
