What to wear to work: I spend more time, effort and money on ‘office attire’ than on any other element of my closet. The challenge is that, like all of us, work clothes need to multitask – professional and practical yet sharp, chic and standing out for the right reasons. Get it right and your wardrobe will get you almost as far as a killer presentation.
So in this week’s issue, we’ve focused on smart style. Discover the hero pieces that will take you from 9 to 5 and beyond; note the beauty trends that will help you look polished; and see model Karmen Pedaru showcase the season’s star-makers, with hardworking buys from Givenchy and Chloé.
Plus, on page 15, some of the world’s most stylish businesswomen share their secrets of success. What
stood out for me was that they all said how important it is to feel comfortable, so that you can forget about what you are wearing and focus on the job at hand. Follow The EDIT’s advice and you should be able to do just that.
