Street style: Polka dots and gumboots at work

What do you wear at the start of the work week?

Particularly a wet and rainy one?!

Take inspiration from today’s BusiChic who sports an office ensemble packed with some rather joyful colour, print and detail!

Business Chic in polka dot and gumboots Bourke Street Melbourne

Nadisha sports a most joyous Business Casual ensemble with practical water-resistant capabilities in fun hues that brighten up a commute to work on a dreary day!

White shirt broderie detail

The broderie detail on Nadisha’s white shirt make it a little more casual than what those in Contemporary Business Wear dresscodes will normally wear. However if you paired this with a more conservative print bottom and shoes, I think you could get away with it! Same goes with the polka dot pencil skirt – formalise for a conservative workplace but pairing with a boat-neck knit and classic work heels.

tan work bag

A good work bag goes with everything. When in doubt, seek out timeless shapes in black, navy and tan and when you are feeling braver, break out into red, yellow and whichever hue takes your fancy!

blue sky rainboots help keep the rain away

Fishnet stockings and the cutest GUMBOOTS! Unfortunately Nadisha’s been a bit busy to get back to me with the details of her outfit but if you’d like to dip your toe into the style, seek out original Hunter wellies or start with this budget option! If you work in a conservative workplace, make sure that you have a safe pair of work shoes handy to change into once you reach your desk.

Recreate the look!
