There is still a way to be 'fashion-forward' at work while still being professional. Look for simple clean lines and accessories. Add a tailored blazer, knee length pencil skirt; cigarette pants and form-fitted shift dress to your wardrobe in black for a dramatic yet elegant style. You can then add colour, subtle print and texture through your tops and accessories.
The best retailers to visit for these pieces are David Lawrence, Cue, Veronica Maine, Portmans, Jacqui E and Country Road. Just remember you need to take into consideration that when you are at work you are representing the company you work for, and first impressions and company image always comes first.
