If you are constantly worried about your workwear choices and they give you unnecessary headache then this post is for you. The ultimate busy businesswoman wardrobe requires a combination of comfort, style and personal flair and it is all about finding what works for you. I put together a shortlist of few investment buys that will make you look polished and professional at the office.
A dress / a suit
The office is not the place for a fashion parade and if you are a busy business woman then you need to get a work-wear that is comfortable, flexible, doesn’t need to be dry-cleaned and doesn’t crease easily. In order to do so I would advise you to invest in a few high-quality suit or dress that is specifically designed for the busy businesswomen. I personally love wearing dresses and this Ralph Lauren is just perfect-it doesn’t crease, looks stylish and it can be worn with lots of different accessories. I recently took it on my business trip to Washington D.C. and it looked flawless and wasn’t creased after over 20 hours in my suitcase. I would suggest you to choose dresses (such as little black dresses) which can be easily transformed from smart to smart-casual so you can also use them for after work-drinks or visiting friends.
Finding a right handbag to carry all of your workday essentials that does look professional and stylish might be challenging. Knomo has the perfect solution if you are looking for simple and exclusive design. Knomo’s aim is to create bags and accessories tailored to suit the modern fashion-forward woman. I have recently received a black leather Knomo Audley handbag which is just the right size to store all my office must-haves, laptop, cosmetic bag etc. besides looking really sleek and professional. I travel a lot and 99% of the time have problem with finding a high quality laptop bag. Knomo Audley bag combines both stylish handbag and a laptop bag in one simple and timeless design. The bag is made from the highest quality, soft leather. It bridges the gap between classic and chic making it ideal for the office, with build-up features like:
• Easy access front pockets with RFID blocking -perfect for storing your bank cards, phone etc. to protect you from the identity theft;
• Padded laptop section- it fits my Microsoft Surface laptop (14-inch) and a separate pocket makes it easy to grab on the go and kept separate from everything else that you carry in.
• Detachable strap- I personally prefer to use my bag without a strap however for these moments for when you want to be hands free, you can attach the strap and turn this handbag into a cross body bag.
The interior design of Knomo Audrey’s bag is all that you need. It has 2 exterior pockets (one with RFID blocking). The main section of Knomo Audrey’s bag has a padded segment laptop or 14-inch tablet as well as a zipped pocket for small items.
I like wearing stylish hills but can you really manage wearing them all day long without ending up with tired feet? The answer is: I don’t think so. My solution to this is to wear stylish court shoes or designer hills for meetings with clients and having a pair of flats for when I busy around the office or on the move. Valentino’s ‘The Rockstud’ flats are a faultless solution and I absolutely loved their feminine, modern feel. For the last few months, it seems like I’ve been wearing them constantly as they are extremely comfortable. They come in a range of colours but I decided to get a pair from the beige and black palette. Valentino’s ‘The Rockstud’ flats are trimmed with gold pyramid studs which are galvanized to never lose their shine. They are a perfect alternative to hills or court shoes and look timelessly elegant to any of your the office.
They are quite costly (£585) but definitely worth the investment.
