Going by the forecast for this week in Melbourne: Summer is back!
Consider it the week to make the most of all of the pieces you bought in anticipation of heat or the trusty-favourite summery outfits that have served you well over the years. Today’s BusiChic is in a great shirt dress in nautical colours of navy and white creating a cool and collected look for the bureau:
Taking five with Victoria
What’s your role? What industry do you work in?
My role is media relations manager and I work in the health industry.
How do you describe your workwear style?
The look I go for is classic and smart – I like clean, smooth silhouettes and a strong colour palate. I also believe you can make any outfit stand out with the right accessories, such as a unique necklace or scarf.
What are some of your go-to outfits for:
(1) day in the office
Cropped trousers or a skirt and shirt with heels – I’m really into pencil skirts at the moment.
(2) important meetings
Fitted dress and a tailored jacket – chic and simple.
(3) your desk-to-drink chic outfit
Something a little more relaxed – trousers and heels with a less structured top and jacket, and a chunky necklace.
Your favourite labels for workwear?
I love Review – it’s so chic and classic, and the clothes transition well between office and casual wear. However, I seem to get the most compliments when I’m wearing something from Target – you can never underestimate the power of a Target gem!
Favourite spots for lunch/coffee in the city?
I love the array of cafes down the little laneway off Collins Street, near the corner of Spencer St. There’s a delicious French creperie and a great chicken and beer cafe!
