Oh here we go again. Another week to prepare for what to wear!

It’s hard to be the stylish boss babe you want to be and have the time to plan out every outfit when you work five days a week. Lucky for you, we’ve pulled together workwear staples that are a mix between 9-5 ‘HR-friendly’ and fashion-forward staples so you can be a boss babe every day of the week. At Piccolo PR, corporate suits are out and killer shoes are in!….it’s all about the balance.

Our Top 5 Workplace Wardrobe Essentials

  1. Bring on the blazer! It will work overtime and will give you #bossbabe tude every time, every season. The humble blazer is the one item fashion the world can’t live without. Now with the boyfriend blazer trending- this one ‘90s piece will add practicality, elegance, trend and style to anything layered beneath it. An evening dress? Yep. A tee and jeans? Absolutely. A sweater and bike shorts? AH-HUH! It’s time!

  2. Let’s take it back to basics! The Crisp White shirt should be on rotation, ASAP! It’s also so super versatile. It dresses up, it dresses down, it’s the blank canvas around which you can you build any outfit.

  3. The flat-shoe trend that’s becoming obsolete is the ballet shoe (sorry!).  Time to replace these with chunky-sole flats platform footwear, regular slip-on flat loafers or a sling back version.

  4. Breathe out. Bows are sticking around for next season and will make you feel like a lady. You can even get matchy matchy and tie your hair in a bow. That’s Brill!

  5. It’s time to bring out the oversized bag. Again. The good news is that this trend can fit your laptop, a water bottle, your phone charger, and even an extra pair of shoes in some cases.  It’s all about being OTT!  If you want to try the trend on the cheap, grab an oversize canvas tote and call it a day.

  6. Denim- at Piccolo PR, denim is our dream. The demise of the skinny jeans has been replaced by the true 90’s ‘Mom’ ultra-slouchy wide leg. Ride hide in casual and effortless elegance.

  7. Of the many tailoring trends on our radar right now, the Bermuda-short suit seems to be begging for attention. Shop the matching tailored jacket for a stylish androgynous look.
