MSFW | The Spring Suit

Dear BusiChic, my yoga instructor recently reminded our class that spring is a tumultuous month of change. So while I have not been as diligent with updating the blog of late (and my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused), I promise you that it has not been for lack of work-inspiring events! However as I seek to put things right, over the coming weeks, I’ll be posting content here daily once more and I hope that you’ll return just as frequently to enjoy it!

Today’s office wear inspiration is the first in the series of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) coverage that I will be bringing to you this week. MSFW is geared at consumers in that the fashions on the runway are ready in stores for one to purchase; hurrah! First off, here is a Corporate chick I photographed on her way to a MSFW evening parade!


Joy wears a suit from Portmans, top from Ted Baker, shoes nine west and bag bought in Japan. After work drinks at Public House.

As a Corporate, Joy has limited scope for creativity but I appreciate the additions she has made to jazz up a classic suit (which itself has some details like the pleating on the back of her blazer) such as the feature top (note sparkly fabric is still work-appropriate by way of its classic cut, something which Ted Baker is good at) and timeless pumps in a fun colour.

On the runway, I spotted the following ensembles which I thought could walk straight into the office, what do you think?

What do you think of the suits I’ve assembled here from off the MSFW runway? I’m particularly fond of the combination of the pink accessories and cool blue ensemble from Alice Euphemia (final image) – a fresh take on the suit that is polished enough that I think that I could get away with in my conservative workplace, what do you think?

  1. Loved what you’ve put together! They are great choices from the normal boring suit. I especially liked the Limedrop ensemble – loving the shape of the skirt that gives one a nice feminine shape. And the soft yet structured look of the black top.
