Dressing for the office is a delicate balance between dressing in a way that is chic yet professional, well-fitted and flattering yet conservative, and feminine while being all business. The workspace does not need to be a fashion show, but a well-tailored and professional outfit can help you feel capable and command respect.

Scroll down and get your daily dose of style inspiration and shop your favourite looks!

Keep your skirts and dresses to your knees, at least. This bit of advice may sound antiquated, but it will ensure that you don’t look inappropriate at the office. Mini skirts and flirty dresses are fantastic, but they have no place at work. Make sure that your skirts and dresses hit at the knee or below. If you’re worried about looking unfashionable or overly modest, just make sure your skirts and dresses are properly tailored.

Avoid low-cut and sleeveless tops. Again, every office has a different dress code, but this is a great rule of thumb. Make sure that your chest is fully covered when you head off to work.

When in doubt, overdress! It’s much better to be the only woman in a dress and heels on the first day of work, rather than the only woman in jeans. Dressing up shows that you take the job seriously, while under-dressing can give the impression that you don’t care as much.

Invest in some tailored coats. Nothing says professional like a great fitting coat. Avoid boxy, “masculine” one that mask your figure with hard, straight lines. Instead, find a coat that slightly hugs your body while still giving you ample room to move.

Remember, you don’t need to buy a new outfit for every day of the week, but it’s important to have some neutral-colored, “go to” items that you know are office-appropriate and you can easily mix and match.
