Women’s Wardrobe Essentials for Work – Personal Stylist Melbourne

Women’s wardrobe essentials for any work occasion

It’s the age-old dilemma; what do you wear to work? And it’s a problem you face day-in, day-out.

As much as we know that a little preparation the night before will make a big impact during the morning rush from showering, to outfit selection to breakfast to nearly missing the train (again) the reality is choosing what to wear to work is something that’s left to the last minute.

If that’s you, don’t stress. You’re not alone but as a personal fashion stylist, I’ve got you sorted when it comes to fashionable, practical and reliable women’s workwear.

Here are my favourite workwear clothes that will see you strutting around your workplace with confidence and style, every day.


Celeste Wool Suit Jacket

Celeste wool suit jacket by Saba $449

This French navy wool suit jacket is perfect for that important meeting or when appearance calls for a more corporate-feel. But, that’s not to say it can’t be toned down with a casual T-shirt for when professional turns into work drinks.

Crepe Tuxedo Jacket

Crepe tuxedo collar jacket by Cue $345
If you’re not in a corporate environment but still love the look of a fitted jacket (or blazer) this one by Cue is for you. This jacket is styled with a peaked collar and lapel, front pockets and single button closure.

Crepe Knit Drape Jacket

Crepe knit drape front jacket by Scanlan Theodore $500
For the times at work when you need a statement piece, this immaculately styled jacket has your name on it (and people won’t forget it, or you in it) Worn open over a dress or trousers, it oozes class and sophistication and the fabric will last forever.


Celeste Wool Suit Pant

Celeste wool suit pant by Saba $249
What’s one without the other? If you’ve got the jacket, you need the tapered premium wool-blend suit pant with clean pocket detailing and front fly closure. These are one of my favourite go-to corporate trousers.

Classic Trouser

Classic trouser by Scanlan Theodore $315
Every woman needs at least one pair of classic black trousers. And these fitted and versatile trousers are it. Perfect to dress up or down when the situation calls for it.


Black back

Julie Dress by Jacqui E $99.95
Nothing is better for a time-poor busy worker than a wrap-style dress that’s easy to fit (and stylish) It’s soft stretchy jersey fabric makes it a comfortable wear all day too. And the black colour makes accessorising easy (even if it’s last-minute)

Two-tone Pencil Skirt

Two-tone pencil skirt by Veronika Maine $179
The two-tone suiting is what sets this skirt apart from your classic work skirt. The below the knee length (most flattering for every shape) is fully lined and has an invisible back zip.

Keyhole Peplum Pencil Dress

Keyhole peplum pencil dress by Cue $255

As the name suggested this pencil dress comes with a keyhole neckline and peplum detail (an attached gathered and slightly flared strip of fabric) to add points of interest, and it will capture attention.

If you’re in the market for a jacket that gives off a corporate-feel or require a workwear item that can be dressed down or up, the options above have you covered. And they can all be thrown on at a moment’s notice.

Wearing any of these, you’ll head into work with confidence and style.
