    Look Polished in Long Sleeve Tees

    Comfortable and lightweight long sleeve tees are a wardrobe must.  They make for an easy layering piece without the bulk.  A solid color tee in a slim silhouette works really well for both casual and dressy workwear while feeling completely comfortable in it.  Jcrew’s Perfect-Fit Long Sleeve Tee (13 colors) will look sharp tucked in a pencil skirt or trousers.  If you prefer the luxe feel of cashmere, here are superbly soft tees in 21 color options.

    Style Pantry blogger Folake wore hers with a printed midi skirt.  What a great daytime look!  I would get several tees in various colors from neutrals to brights to enjoy year round.

    My office-ready look would be ~ a solid tee + a pair of gray trousers + minimal watch + comfortable loafer pumps.  This Jewel Neck Long Sleeve Tee is another favorite of mine and it’s now only $19.50 on sale (use code STYLE)!

    Without a doubt Ines de la Fressange is the epitome of Parisian chic.  Her style is sophisticated, elegant yet cool, and yes, effortlessly classic.  Ines makes the basics like a turtleneck look so chic.   Turtleneck knits are a cold-weather wardrobe essential especially turtleneck sweaters as they offer comfort and extra warmth around your neck (which we often neglect).  I need to start wearing mine but I’ve got to get one in black after seeing it on Ines.

    The Ultimate Work Wardrobe – Five Essentials for Every Gal

    The work wardrobe has always been a toughie.  We struggle with the term smart casual on a daily basis and this tends to be the attire for most businesses nowadays.  However, regardless of your work’s clothing requirement (albeit smart, smart casual or extremely casual) there are five essentials you should have in your wardrobe.

    Thanks to Motilo’s style tips, and a little imagination, you will forever be ahead of the fashion pack when it comes to your work attire:

    The White Blouse

    The white blouse is an absolute must!  Whether you team yours with boyfriend jeans and white courts or tucked it into your favourite floral formal skirt, it will go with everything.  So hassle free and a timeless classic, every fashionista should have the white blouse in her wardrobe, regardless of your work setting.

    For curvy hourglass figures, aim for a fitted wrap style to accentuate your fabulous figure and for slimmer shapes – silk flowing fabrics look perfection.

    The Bold Accessories

    You can spend a small fortune on your work attire, and it’s an absolute minefield.  By opting for simple classic option like the white blouse, you can invest in some bold accessories to bring your outfits to life.  Chunky wood jewelry gives you an earthy look whilst jewels embody the vintage style.

    And it doesn’t stop at jewelry.  Mix & match your jewelry with other accessories to look like the professional you are.  We love teaming the bland white blouse/black pencil skirt combo with bright red accessories all over, including your nails.

    The Black Trousers

    We’re not talking about the boring black school trousers that do nothing for your shape or confidence, oh no.  The black trouser comes in many shapes and sizes, and you need the style best suited to your shape and attitude.  Cigarette style trousers are super stylish and super flattering too for summer.  Opt for ones that show off your ankles to elongate your figure and tick all that tricky smart casual box too.

    The Loafer

    A cross between the sturdy brogue and the flirty ballet pump, the loafer has the smart formal look whilst being a bit of fun too.  Available in so many shapes and shapes, we love all the suede loafers on the market especially in fun summer colors out there at the moment like pastel pink and cool blue.  Remember to team your shoes with a matching top to complete the look.

    The Chic Handbag

    To finish it all off, you need the ultimate handbag complete with your make-up essentials, ample stationary, notepad, mini perfume and business cards.  The designer brand of the moment is Micheal Kors and their bags are stunning.  Various sizes and just a handful of exquisite colors. However, you don’t have to be drawn in by the fashion phase of the moment.

    Mulberrys are still lusted over and Louis Vuittons have a fantastic fashion edge about them. However, we don’t all have the couple of hundred lying around for such luxury, try online.  Whether it’s a designer classic on EBay or an affordable gem form the high street, your work wardrobe needs one killer handbag!
