5 Wardrobe Must Haves for the Office

We all have those “I don’t have anything to wear” moments and theres nothing worse when this happens when you are rushing off to work… with this in mind I wanted to share with you all my five key wardrobe ‘must haves’ that you can rely on to get you into the office looking fabulous!

1) Black Blazer

I swear that every girl should invest in  a decent black blazer. It’s one of the most versatile items in the wardrobe as you can dress it up (teamed with a shift dress) or dress it down (with a pair of flats & skinny jeans) I personally love my trusty black Zara Blazer.

2) Pointed Black Stilettos Heels

Pointed Black stilettos will never go out of fashion and guarantee that wearing these beauties will instantly glam up your outfit! I personally love my pointed heels from Boohoo take a look!

3) Crisp white shirt/blouse

Another key item for the wardrobe and the one you can always rely on when in a rush is your white shirt or blouse! Team this with a statement necklace to give a professional yet trendy style to this outfit.Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 21.53.56

4) The SHIFT Dress

I recently purchased my black Shift Dress from Next (£26) and I can’t believe I haven’t bought one sooner! Its perfect to wear to work with a pair of heels and a nice statement necklace and always looks smart and flattering regardless of your shape or size! A true classic – ladies buy yours now!

5) Tote Handbag 

This is the one that I personally believe finishes off any outfit and the bigger the handbag the better (in my opinion). I always find that a big tote handbag is also very practical as you are able to fit your entire life inside it! So it looks good and is practical its a win win!
