Business attire for women offers numerous possibilities for making a statement at work. And whether you are required to dress in business formals or smart casuals, it helps to have a workwear wardrobe that makes you feel on top of your game, reflects your personality and strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and style. Carefully selected pieces can create a look of competence and efficiency – but more importantly, they can keep you comfortable all through your working hours. Here’s a guide to building a chic work capsule wardrobe which you will absolutely love!
Starting out, ensure that your business attire pieces are durable, comfortable, and versatile. Build on a few classics and essentials that you can supplement with seasonal accents. Also, don’t forget that your ensemble should be easy to put together, rather than cost you precious time. So, think of high-quality, minimalist, sophisticated pieces that come together seamlessly and make you look good and feel great! Here’s a list of chic business attire for women:
- Shirts and tops
The button-up shirt is a great starting point for your workwear wardrobe. It’s a classic that you can wear in a variety of colours and fabrics. Best paired with business suits and chic pants, a shirt is a great fit for the boardroom and work meetings.
Business tops are also a comfortable option and offer interesting possibilities to your overall look. With ruffles, buttons, lace and other details, they can add a spark to your business attire.
The Army shirt from JULIETTE C is versatile, serving office spaces as well as casual occasions with equal ease. The full sleeves Marie top in off-white is cut in pure cotton and spiced with delicate frills to keep you comfortable during working hours and beyond. The Isabelle top in dark blue with its elegant gold stripes is also a great choice for stylish office wear.
Pants – those that don’t belong to your suit – are immeasurably valuable to your business attire. Whether they are tapered or cut straight, coloured or patterned, they can complete your look when matched with a crisp shirt or smart top. Stick to solid neutral colours like black, grey or beige for a conservative look, or spice things up with subtle patterns and brighter shades for a creative vibe!
The black Gihane pants from JULIETTE C are chic and comfortable, and the Valentine pants in khaki add a touch of sophistication to the workplace.
Nice-to-five dresses are generally smart, comfortable and neutral. In fact, workplace cultures may not accept dresses that are tight, too short or revealing. The best dresses allow you to work comfortably and look professional at the same time. They can be paired with a light cardigan to keep warm in the cooler months or an air-conditioned environment.
JULIETTE C’s Victoria dress in off-white and beige is a sophisticated, streamlined dress that raises the glamour quotient at work. The Ingrid dress is an equally stylish shirt dress which provides an elegant business look and can also be turned into a casual chic look when worn with sneakers.
Pencil skirts and A-line skirts are the most appropriate options for office wear. However, once in a while, you can get adventurous and wear a frilled skirt on casual Fridays to welcome the weekend in style!
The Castille skirts in terracotta and sage green are both subtle colours that pair well with a cream blouse.
Accessories add the final touch to your ensemble and help personalise your style. You could choose delicate pieces of jewellery such as a necklace with an accompanying bracelet and ring bearing your choice of stone. Simple stone studs look elegant as well. JULIETTE C offers a range of sophisticated jewellery pieces that adorn and elevate business attire for women.
You may already be familiar with office spaces that feel like the freezer, so carrying a scarf that keeps you toasty warm while looking stylish is a great idea! The silk scarves from JULIETTE C bearing subtle animal print in pink and green are a must-have.
