How to inject style into 9-5

Do you feel like you wear the same thing to work every day? Do you end up in the same rotation of outfits for work because a) it seems easy, b) saves time in the morning, and c) it ends up being a habit?

I get it, who has the time to put in the same amount of effort you normally would for the weekend or a night out. But dressing for 9-5 shouldn't leave you feeling uninspired or bored.

It's so much easier than it seems! With just a little forethought and forward planning, you can achieve a versatile wardrobe that works for both work and play.

Unless you work in a really corporate workplace or wear a uniform, then there is no reason to put your style on hold for the weekend, and even then you can use accessories or a great lipstick to inject some style into your everyday.

The key is to invest in a few pieces you love, which you would normally save for the weekend, to incorporate into your workwear reporteoire.

This leapord print top from Portmans is the perfect feature item to liven up your work wardrobe. It is button up and long-sleeved so it is appropriate for work and can easily be teamed with your work staples such as a black suit. The top comes with a necktie which elevates your look but can also be worn without.

On the weekends, dress it down with a pair of jeans or denim shorts and dress sneakers.

For this winter look, I loved teaming it up with a classic houndstooth coat, a knitted skirt and a pair of over-the-knee boots.

With Spring around the corner, this look can be worn without tights and the boots can be swapped for a metallic flat or a favourite work staple - a classic pump.

What are some of the feature items you would like to have as part of your work wardrobe?
