Shore City: Back to work style
Summer Work Wardrobe Essentials
A little retail therapy is the perfect way to banish those back-to-work blues. We popped in to Shore City to check out the latest styles to update your work wardrobe.
Swap boring black handbags and shoes for bright Summer hues to achieve an instant wardrobe lift.
We loved this Guess shoulder bag from Strandbags in tropical turquoise (left). The latest Ice watches at Fifth Avenue Diamond Jewellers took our fancy too, with white, pale pink and bright yellow our favourite colour picks (below right).
We also saw lots of Summer shades in-store at Mi Piaci, Overland and Hannahs. From heels to ballet flats, stylish wedges to strappy sandals, there were simply too many perfect picks to take you from the boardroom to after-work drinks for us to pick just one pair.
Black and white top the work-wear must-haves every year. Update your wardrobe with this season’s bolder stripes, such as this super-flattering striped pencil skirt we spotted at Country Road (left).
Whether you want to dress to impress, or your workplace is more button-up than dress-down, you can’t go past a perfectly tailored suit jacket, pants or skirt. Jacqui E has a new range of suiting essentials in-store that include details like peplums and pleats for a feminine touch (right).
We also adored the impeccable tailoring we saw at Cue. You have to check out their snake and croc inspired reptile prints in person by the way. These are stand-out pieces that your workmates will envy.
