Street style: Interest in the blue dress

Bank workers get stereotyped as “pinstripes and suits” but today’s BusiChic shows just how broadly bank workers can dress.

A hued dress with an interesting neckline and paired with fashionable sandal heels – Jeanette’s look is great inspiration for the Contemporary Business Wear worker particularly as the weather warms up later this week!

Blue silky dress by Veronika Maine, perfect for hot days or great with a jacket and/or layering on cooler days. I love my Zafino bag, besides being stylish and the perfect size to hold most laptops, it has the right amount of internal pockets and compartments that I feel totally organised! Sandals are from Witchery, textured front strap to add interest. This little classic belt in from David Lawrence, where I’ve purchased many!

Taking Five with Jeanette:

What’s your role? What industry do you work in?
I work at Nab in Business Improvements.

How do you describe your workwear style?
I like to keep on trend, reasonably classic with a touch of detail. Often structured and sometimes adding more pattern and colour, depending on my daily schedule. I love belts, and it’s amazing how a belt can finish an outfit.

What are some of your go-to outfits for:
 (1) day in the office: I have a number of Veronika Maine dresses that are simple cut styles (as featured) that have detail in either colour or simple print.
 (2) important meetings: Often something black – black structured peplum top with belt together with a skirt, textured or usually subtle colours.
(3) your desk-to-drink chic outfit: Any of the above!

Your favourite labels for workwear?
Zafino, Veronika Maine, Witchery, Cue, David Lawrence, Country Road, Zara

Favourite spots for lunch/coffee in the city?
As I work in Docklands, my favourite coffee is Ninety Secondi or caffe bambino and for lunch I regularly grab sushi on the run (Ichimaki or Sushi Wang) or if time permits Pok Pok, Banoi or caffee bambino.
