Tailored pants are imperative to a corporate wardrobe. They not only look professional, but they go with almost everything. Look for pants that cinch in at the waist and have a straight leg. Find great examples of these at Forever New.

Now we move onto the blouse. A piece that allows for more self-expression and freedom of choice. The general rule to follow is three neutral coloured blouses and two with a subtle pattern or print. This gives you a week’s worth of blouses that can go with your tailored pant or skirt. Have fun with your blouses but remember you don’t need to go too bold to look stylish. Find some great designs at Country Road and Zara.

In addition to tailored pants is a blazer to match. A tailored suit is necessary for formal work occasions where a look of professionalism is a must. The blazer is a versatile piece – it can be worn over a dress, with a skirt or even with jeans and heels for a chic weekend look. This wardrobe must-have is an investment. Look for quality over quantity and it should last you a lifetime. Check out Forever New to find a blazer to match your tailored pants and play it safe with black, grey or a neutral colour.

Let your personal style lead the way with an abundance of dresses available at The Iconic and Witchery. A well-structured dress that falls above or below the knee is a perfect fit for the corporate wardrobe. If you prefer something with a looser silhouette, try a wrap dress with long or capped sleeves. Leave the prints behind and go for a solid block colour to ensure elegance. - Photo Credit Forever Zara

Pencil skirts are timeless and look sharp. Avoid any fabrics that are too tight and stick to an A-line skirt below the knee. You may even like to wear a slip skirt or pleated skirt (just make sure they are ironed) with a blazer. The Iconic has a wide range and offer one day express delivery.

Shoes and bag
Last but not least, shoes and bag are the most practical items of your wardrobe. A general rule in the workplace is to stick to closed-toe shoes. Ensure your work bag is of size to carry your work necessities. For both shoes and bags, leather tends to be a fabric that is easily cleaned and looks sharp. Find a neutral colour for both so they match majority of your wardrobe. Myer and David Jones are perfect for shopping because you can tend to find a good bargain!
