You can update your work wardrobe with some key pieces. Some key pieces are statement jackets, flat sandals, peeptoe shoes, smart work shoes, jeans or denim for your Friday wear.

Wear a jacket even if you take it off afterward. Blazers don’t have to be boring.Swap your black blazer for a different colour (blues and neutrals work just as well), or with interesting details.

Nice handbags and accessories for work that can serve for evening outing after work.  You also need neck scarves and a nice time piece. Scarves are a smart way to bring attention to your face and neck, and they look great with everything. Your time piece is something you look at all day, so pick one that’s as gorgeous as a piece of jewellery.

Navys, black or darker colored suits, white shirts or blouses make a classic statement.

No doubt the classic white shirt is a staple- but bringing some texture and print to the classic is a smart fashion move.

Invest in a pencil skirts.Pencil skirts are a must-have for any working wardrobe.

Add a feminineblouse. Soft, flowing blouses are girly and grown-up.  Complementing a formal skirt or pair of pants with a slinky feminine blouse is also a smart fashion move.

Add some ruffles.Ruffles will add some instant style to your work wardrobe. Make the look work by balancing ruffles with plainer separates and don’t add ruffles to parts of your body you want to keep streamline. Try teaming a Victorian-style ruffle shirt with a pencil skirt and pumps for a dressed-up work look.

Bring on a belt. The skinny belt helps create a thinner, sexier waist over.

Use a brooch to add interest.Apart from the fact that a brooch adds instant interest to regular blazers, they’re also great conversation starters.

Invest in statement jewellery. As long as it’s not noisy, a fun ring or necklace can make all the difference.

Your clothes have to be a good fit ? not just to your body, but also to your personality. Check if the outfit makes you feel great. Carefully weigh your options and choose what will make you stride into a room like you own it. And,remember to smile. It puts people at ease, and lets them know you?re comfortable in your own skin.
