maxi dress

Shift Dress

Bold and beautiful, this midi-length striped shift dress can totally take you from office to post-work drinks. P.S.: Save it for days that aren’t going to be spent in your cube.


The feminine yet no-nonsense culottes can be teamed with blousons as well as shirts and chic high-heeled strappies. For a creative workplace, you might want to ditch the plain ol’ black ones for some colour.

Waterfall Jacket

The uptight blazer just got an edgy makeover and it flatters in all the right places. Besides, the more fluid silhouette has approachable written all over it, and who doesn’t like that?
skinny jeans

Black Skinny Fit Jeans

They’re the new power dressing essential, right next to the quintessential black blazer. They’re also a lifesaver on days when you haven’t planned your outfit in advance (read: every other day).

Striped Shirt

This nonchalant striped shirt says you’re not just the boss; you’re also a team player. We’re voting this one in, for days when you need to get straight to business.
pleated skirt

Pleated Skirt

Pencil skirts are great, but pleated skirts are better. This season, pleats have won our attention and a pale grey midi is just what you need to take this style to the workplace.

Printed Trousers

Monochrome can do no wrong. These printed trousers that cut off just above the ankle will guarantee you bring your A-game to work. Team them with laid-back loafers or classic black pumps.

You’ve got to own one of these just for the fact that the air-conditioner constantly threatens to turn the office into a freezer. Throw this semi-sheer, lightweight jumper with long batwing sleeves over a plain tee to get that #bosslady style on-point.
printed blouse

Printed Blouse

This statement piece is as versatile as it gets. Invest in a few of these work-appropriate staples to look like a fashion insider.
