Work Wear

Since I am starting a new job this week it evidently meant I had the 'oh my god I have nothing to wear' fiasco.  The clothes I work to my previous job just wouldn't cut it, I wanted a fresh start.  Being a fan of the Boohoo 'Work Wear' range, I immediately headed there to see what I could find.  

The first item I saw was this black collared dress(£15) I personally don't think you can ever go wrong with black for work wear.  It's smart, it's simple, it's stylish.  Everything you want for going to work.  I've always had a thing for a good collar and Peter Pan collars are right up my street so this dress was exactly what I was looking for.

Another dress that caught my eye was this colour block skater dress(£15) like the previous the colours are staple black, white and grey, ideal for work.  I love the style of this dress and how it flares at the bottom of the skirt, the material looks soft and comfortable which is always essential given it will be worn for around 8-9 hours a day.  

Next up is a classic blazer (£18).  Blazers are perfect for making it look like you've made a lot of effort when you haven't really.  They add a touch of elegance to any outfit and really pull the look together.  This is in the style of a shawl so will be perfect for wearing under a coat in the winter, without being too heavy.  

To add a pop of colour, I chose this burgundy blouse (£12), I am a huge burgundy fan and love the style of the neck of this blouse.  The material looks so luxurious soft.  This could be easily paired with black jeans/trousers or a skirt and tights and looks great either way.  

A staple item is a good pair of trousers and black pintuck (£15) ones looks perfect, they're smart but also have a casual and cool feel to them as they are a skinny fit and also ankle grazers.  The fact they're black too means they will go with basically everything and anything, which is always handy for throwing together outfits in the morning.

I've been loving the look of turtle necks recently and this white short sleeved top (£10) caught my eye straight away!  I love the length of the sleeves on this and the overall finish of it.  The white is really clean and sharp looking and would look great under some sort of black strappy dress with tights or even a pair of black trousers.  There are so many ways this can be styled which is ideal for changing up looks everyday.

A skirt is also a great staple item to have and I love the look of these pleated mini skirts (£15). The black is great for pairing with most items but I also love the colour of the orange to add a little something extra to a plain outfit.  

A new pair of shoes are always on the cards and I immediately fell in love with these patent chunky ballet pumps (£18).  I love the bow and the shine from them.  They also look much more hard-wearing and durable than a normal pair of ballet pumps which can sometimes juts fall apart the second time they are on your feet!

So that was some items I think are perfect for work wear and hopefully gave you some inspiration should you ever need it.

What items do you think are staple for work?  


  1. Boots & blazers are my staple clothing items for work though I must say I love that collared dress and patent pumps as well, lovely. Oh by the way I have nominated you for the sisterhood of the world bloggers award, check out my blog for details :)
