Work wear for spring

Sponsored Post

After much anticipation the weather warmer weather has finally hit Melbourne with sunny breaks and less rain with a glimpse of the warmer months ahead. October has now arrive, and already the mornings seem a tiny bit brighter and the evenings are extending now that we have hit daylight savings – my favorite part of the year. This means the warmer weather is on its way, bringing less rain, more sun, fun and because it’s Melbourne a little unpredictability. But don’t put your boots away or your winter warmers just yet. Try pairing them with your spring sundresses and even autumn styles to mix and match this season. For your work wardrobe why not mix both current season stock and even mix in the autumn styles that are currently in on the other side of the globe. Living in Melbourne we can have 4 seasons in one day so by mixing both spring and autumn you can make some rocking looks in your wardrobe this season.

Spring is all about dresses! There is something in the air that makes you want to rip off those jeans and winter woollies and slip into as many different styles dresses as possible. But be sure to cover up those pins and pair your look with a cardigan if the Melbourne chills catch you. If you want some on trend dresses (that on trend they are 2 seasons ahead) to add to your work wardrobe, but don’t want to spend a fortune, then why not take a look at George's work dresses - they look great, are fantastic quality and are exceptional value. Plain dresses are great for work as they can be accessorized in many different ways to look like a whole new outfit, which is good news when you have a limited work wardrobe to draw from five days a week. With Georges you can find an extended size range in styles so girls with or without curves are in luck. All shapes sorted!

Some of my favorites online right now are:

Looking to the UK for inspiration of how to mix your current Australian season with its sister season you can follow the following:

If you are a bit of a girly girl, then this is your year. Pastels and frilled hems are very much in this year, and peach and light pink have featured heavily on the catwalk. Unless you work in fashion it is best not to go all out on a trend for work, instead pick a few key pieces from a trend and team them with classic outfits. Pearls, cardigans and hair accessories are all good ways of making the preppy girly look work for professionals. Pair these items with high waisted 40’s style pants or pencil skirts for a stunning office outfit.

The punk trend is big this autumn too, but punk is not usually something you would associate with the corporate world. You can sprinkle a dash of this trend onto your work clothes this season however, as long as you do it with subtlety. Tartan is the best way to incorporate punk into any outfit and there is plenty of it available in the shops this season. Find a piece that is not too garish and team with dark colours. You could also try some leather boots or a jacket with your normal work attire, but this really depends on how laid back your workplace is about clothing policies. Plaid and black are a staple in my casual attire but the same style can apply beautifully with tailored options in dark red or green prints.

Going to work needn't mean looking drab, and the change in weather doesn't mean you have to drastically change your wardrobe just yet.. You can look fab in the office this spring by giving your work wear a little face-lift ready for the new season. Pick your favorite trend and see how you can incorporate it into your daily attire giving you a unique yet professional style. 

So what is your cross of season style? Tell me your favorite looks for this spring or even Autumn my readers from the other hemisphere.
