Polished polka dots and a collarless blazer

Today’s stylish professional as spotted on the streets of Melbourne is polished Kerri who works as a lawyer in the area of IP litigation and dispute resolution.

“If meeting with a client, counsel or going to court, formal business attire is required so I will always wear a suit and shirt or silk blouse.”

So it’s no surprise that Kerri cites her Mulberry handbag and Rhodes and Beckett suits and silk shirts as her office wardrobe MVPs- classic but stylish takes on corporate attire! Her favourite labels for workwear include the following:


On the day that I photographed this BusiChic, Kerri was not client-facing so she was wearing a Contemporary Business Wear outfit featuring one of my favourite prints; the polka dot.

Kerri wears:

The Mulberry Bayswater bag that Kerri purchased in the UK is a great carry-all that suits her classic, feminine style.

Wedge heels give the wearer height without compromising comfort.


Kerri’s simple but chic look is made more polished thanks to her hair and make up so thanks to Kerri for answering my request for details to re-create her polished look:

Ok I now realise that I should have also asked to photograph Kerri without her sunglasses – oops! That said I think her Ray Bans make her outfit a bit more fun and youthful 😉

Thanks Kerri! I like how she’s made an all-black ensemble interesting by adding in a playful print and lively red lip.


  1. I really like this one. Slick yet femininely playful with the polka dots. My kind of style too. And that red lip … wow!

    • Yes – such good “bones” in Kerri’s outfit that I imagine she’s able to recreate lots of business chic looks. One of my favourite red lippies too!

  2. Kerri looks amazing. Very chic and polished and perfect for work. Good inspiration!
