Designer Donna Karan was once quoted as saying that “Shoulders are the one place a woman will never get fat—so show ‘em!”. Think about it – have you ever heard a woman complain about her shoulders? Thought not. If you’re sartorially game to highlight a part of your body but not inclined to flaunt your midriff or cleavage, then shoulders are IT. And we have just the thing to help you show them off discreetly and stylishly. See by Chloé’s relaxed fit smocked cotton top offers a highly flattering way to show a subtle hint of skin. This brand is the younger, ultra-hip diffusion line of the trendsetting French fashion house Chloé and the epitomé of French girl cool. See by Chloé is also well-known for its more affordable style-defining separates and urban edge. After all, it has given a simple white cotton peasant top a chic fashion-forward twist - adding sassy sleeves with artfully placed peekaboo vents at the shoulders. Perfect to coyly tease and "flash" just the right amount of flesh with utter confidence. Mission accomplie!




See by Chloé Cotton Top [AC245]

Ever since she walked down the aisle in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown, every fashion move Kate Middleton makes has been closely monitored by fans the world over. She must doing something right – apart from selling out just about every item she steps out in, the now Duchess of Cambridge has made it to the top of Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed list in 2012 and 2011, beating out more seasoned fashion-savvy royals, models and celebrities for the coveted title.

We particularly love her lady-like and elegant sartorial choices. For sure she’s inspired us to focus our purchases on classic, timeless styles that will last for seasons to come. She’s also proven that one doesn’t have to bare a lot of flesh to be sexy and confident or spend a fortune on expensive couture fashion to be on-trend. It is a well-known fact that the Duchess loves to combine high-end fashion with finds picked up from her own shopping trips to more budget-friendly high street stores like Topshop and Zara. Every so often she would go thrifting at second-hand clothing stores - aah, a princess after our own hearts!

According to a survey conducted by the UK Daily Mail, blue accounts for 21% of her wardrobe choices. Indeed she does seem to have a penchant for blue outfits: 

(L-R): Kate wearing a Reiss creation for her first speaking engagement as a member of the royal family; 2. Wrap dress by Brazilian design house Issa for her engagement announcement; 3.in another dress by Issa to attend a friend's wedding; 4. in Erdem during a state visit to Canada.   

Fortunately with a little bit of help from us, you don’t have to snag a prince or spend a king’s fortune to get her true-blue look. We’ve picked out some copy Kate-worthy options in her favourite hue which we think the duchess herself would approve of!

Workload aside, us working women have no shortage of decisions to make including seeking answers to the daily question of “What am I going to wear to work today?” - rising up to the challenge of making fashion choices which reflect our unrelenting ambition, joie de vivre personality and impeccable individual style all while keeping within the bounds of professionalism and of course, the company dress code. To say that dressing for the office can be really daunting at times is an understatement.

Whether you’re prepping for a big interview, starting a new vocation or simply looking for some out-of-the-cubicle work wear inspiration, one thing’s for sure: no matter which job we’re in, it’s incredibly important for us to manage how we are perceived, and the best impressions are made by someone who looks polished and put-together. Call it shallow or superficial, and personally we think it’s a tad unfair, but studies have shown that a woman’s appearance affects her credibility i.e. whether she is taken seriously, whether she is asked to participate in high level meetings or if she is well regarded by colleagues or supervisors. Ain't easy being a working woman, is it?

But gripe not and fret not, dear ladies, for we’ve compiled some chic office fashion finds that mean serious, stylish business to help you dress for the job you want (not just for the job you have), and do it in go-getter style. Up, up and away!
