How To Dress For The Job YOU Want

Dressing in an important tool for both your confidence and presence. Although landing your dream job comes with determination, ambition and preparation, a powerful outfit can help set the tone.

Consider your shoes:

Running from one meeting to another, it is important that your shoes are committed to you and your day. A girl having a bad day, is a girl in uncomfortable shoes. Your shoes should be both comfortable, and smart. Don’t try to break in shoes, on the day of a meeting, (an important lesson I learnt in my first role) as nobody likes a slow coach. Heels are not always the most practical pair of shoes but if they do finish off your outfit, carry some flats and swap over before you arrive at the venue.

Never underestimate the power of tailoring:

Smart, formal dressing is always highly looked upon. A blazer will instantly elevate your look, ensuring that you look professional. It doesn’t matter if you team this with a white tee and skinny jeans, the blazer will broaden those shoulders and have you looking chic. Depending on the industry, a suit may be necessary but in fashion, a blazer teamed with pretty much anything works.

When in doubt, reach for monochrome:

Monochrome is a timeless colour palette. A classic, powerful ensemble that will always start your day off right. If you wake up thinking ‘i have nothing to wear’ and we have all been there (even if our wardrobe is bursting with clothes), have faith that a monochrome two piece will have your back.


Old is gold:

The old fashioned rules of appropriate length, fitted (not tight) and nothing too low cut still apply. You want to be known for your hard work and commitment to achieve as opposed to your fashion faux pas!

Finally, invest in some transitional pieces and rest assured that these will carry you through.

Minimalistic Chic In Marrakech

I adore the all white look; the simplicity of chiffon and the excess of draping material gave this look, a very elegant feel. Inspired by Victoria Beckham and her minimalistic chic style, I teamed this long line white chiffon dress with white heels. Both are from Zara and worked effortlessly well together. The gold on the heel worked well with my simple gold jewellery. My bracelets are from Next and my necklace is from Miss Selfridge.IMG_4249During my time in Marrakech I wanted a look, which would not only compliment the heat but also, incorporate some of the traditional look of Moroccan gold jewellery – this look did both!IMG_4224This dress could easily be teamed with skinny white jeans to continue the theme or black skinnies perhaps for the evening. I wore a simple black bodycon dress underneath but this white dress worked efficiently as a bikini cover up by the pool too! There are endless ways to wear this dress and that is why I love ZARA!IMG_4312The only advice I would give to anyone braving an all white look – stay clear of coloured drinks- that will be a tall skinny glass of iced water for me please!

Thank you for reading – have a great day!
