Workwear update from Baukjen
Hello – I hope you are all ok? I am back with another Baukjen blog- this time I am focussing on my picks for workwear as there are a few real corkers that I thought you might like…
Starting off with a beautiful of a dress that would give Meghan Markle’s character in “Suits” a run for a thier money! Wear this when you are feeling sleek, confident and chic – the all white ensemble, the statement collar, the pencil skirt all add up to needing to cool off at the water station! It is so elegant, so simple and yet so timeless…a great investment piece.
It would work for any of you with a neat hourglass shape as it will show off your waist. However, be careful if you have a full bust though as the buttoned up collar won’t do the girls any favours!
I thought these next two images perfectly show how you buy one suit and get lots of different wearable options…a great example of “capsule wear”. The colour of the jacket would work for those of you with cool / soft / light / clear colouring…it just depends which colours you then with it.
For those of you with light or cool colouring- try light blue, light pink, light grey or white with it
For those of you with soft colouring- try pewter, mid grey, mid blue, navy or soft white
For those of you with clear colouring- wear with black, white, bright red, bright green or bright blue. A total wardrobe staple that will last you for many years.
(perfect for those of you who are bottom heavy and have a small bust as it will broaden you at the shoulders)
Or you could go even more classic and get a black suit- great for those of you with deep, cool or clear colouring and so useful. I love that you can wear a suit to work with a simple shirt and pair of coloured kitten heals and then change the shoes for some statement courts and a huge necklace and you are ready for after work cocktails- yet you haven’t had to change! This one is particularly brilliant as you get the belt with it- so it updates the look it just that little bit more and makes it feel a bit different.
If you want a suit but with a bit of colour- how about red? This red looks to me like it is a universal one- ie it will suit everyone (but I have to be honest- I haven’t seen it in real life…so cannot say for certain). Again- look at the brilliant styling options here to give you great inspiration as to how to get a capsule wardrobe going with a few choice pieces…
