"When it comes to building a career focused wardrobe, personally for me, it’s all about investing in key silhouettes that can easily be styled into multiple classic and timeless looks. I always want my outfits to reflect my personality which in turns makes me feel confident and ready to take on the world. Below are a few of the key pieces I think every woman should have when building a versatile workwear wardrobe."

"Always make sure you throw some pieces in your wardrobe that reflect you and your individuality as well. These key styles are just the base pieces I think are great staples when building your workwear wardrobe. For example - I love fun accessories including unique earrings, gold layered necklaces and timeless bags that reflect my signature minimal and monochrome style."

1. A WHITE SHIRT

"I love a soft linen style that can be worn with a black pant, denim, or a white linen skirt and kitten heels."

2. A BLACK BLAZER

"A key layering piece for every season, whenever I pop on a classic black blazer, I feel the absolute best: Feminine, chic and powerful."

3. A CLASSIC BLACK CAMI

"A staple separate that I highly suggest getting in multiple colours and fabrics. The understated classic black cami is the perfect piece for pairing with multiple looks including a black suit pant and blazer or even a pencil skirt and sneakers."

4. A WRAP SKIRT

"So flattering, a wrap skirt is one piece I think is an essential when building a career-focused wardrobe. Pair it back with a cami and a blazer, relaxed shirts and much more. ."

5. A LINEN CO-ORD SET

"I’m slightly obsessed with co-ord sets! They are such an easy go-to in my workwear wardrobe and I always feel effortlessly put together in them. Lately I have been opting for neutral toned sets that I can dress up with a strappy heel or go more casual with a classic black slide and a statement black bag. I always mix and match these sets into other outfits by using them as neutral toned separates too."

AND NOW FOR A LITTLE CAREER ADVICE

Always set goals and push yourself to reach your dreams. Set smaller tasks for each week or month too - these work as stepping stones helping you get towards your main goal/s.

Trust your gut - always!

Be prepared to work hard. Focus and be patient. Hard work always pays off.

Never stand still, always look forward, keep learning and asking questions.
