Transeasonal weather calls for a chic cover-up and I find a trench in a neutral tone fits the bill. I came across today’s featuree during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and thought her polished Contemporary Business Wear ensemble was a perfect example of this classic staple but I also particularly like how she injects some freshness into the look by way of leopard print scarf. Nice. Now I don’t tend to feature mini-skirts but felt that this clever lass accessorised and presented in such a way that it would have been a faux-pas on my part, not to…. which goes to illustrate; when pushing the workwear envelope, do make sure you present in such a polished way that the look simply works.

Describe your work dress style: contemporary business wear
Favourite shops/brands/websites for workwear? My corporate wardrobe is largely half Country Road, half vintage. I love trawling my grandmas’ wardrobes and local op shops for one-off pieces that transform an otherwise typical corporate outfit.
Most hardworking accessory or item of clothing in your workrobe? My sister and I have worn to death twice over (our shoe repair man was only able to resurrect it once) a black epi leather ellipse handbag that my mum found for us at our local St Vinnies.
