5 Fashion Essentials for the Modern Working Woman

Being a modern working woman can be a bit daunting. With the pressure of being a millennial, so many hats to juggle it can be a bit tricky when it comes to putting together a work wear wardrobe together.

Most jobs nowadays are not very formal so you can certainly get awy with wearing leisurewear at some companies (esp IT companies) but it’s always a good idea to have a few pieces should you have to be in a boardroom making decisions with other big names.

Presentation is everything.


A versatile black blazer will take you from the boardroom to a night out. It has to be well fitting and low maintenance but made out of good quality. It will be difficult to find a blazer which embodies all these features but if you visit Zara, you will be sure to find something suitable to your personal style and work environment.

Structured Tote

I could never stress the importance of a structured bag enough. It gives you all the sophistication and elegance in the office. You could give Jessica (from the series, Suit) a run for her money, Being a lover of both tote and structured bags I have come to realize that, Colette Hayman has some of the best quality structured bags I have come across.

Classic Button Down

Whether it’s a blouse or a shirt, this is a must especially in white. Not only does it pair well with almost anything but it is also easy to accessorize. These are easily accessible nation wide in any store that sells clothes, you just need to pick a good quality durable one and you never have to worry about replacing it ever so often.

Tailored Pants

If you are going to have one pair of tailored pants in your wardrobe, please make sure it is a black pair. We are all about versatility here and that is what a black pair of tailored pants is about. You can get a pair at Woolworths.

Comfortable Pointy Toe Heel

Comfort is always key! It would be the most uncomfortable thing to feel your toes dying while you are up front leading a presentation.

There’s nothing worse than seeing someone limp around the office or hobble between meetings in sky high, uncomfortable stilettos . Trust me, I have been here before. If you want to wear your Louboutins to that big meeting at least add some silicon pads for comfort.

As you can tell, I am an advocate for comfort but moreover I am an advocate for always presenting yourself in the best light possible.
