CORPORATE ATTIRE GUIDELINES WITH T.M.LEWIN

What should I wear to work?

I have the pleasure of working with so many amazing clients, from all walks of life.
However there is definitely an overwhelming increase of corporate clients, wanting to step up their game when it comes to their image and the way they present themselves.
The most asked question is, what is appropriate to wear to work?
If you work in a corporate environment, this seems to be a commonly asked question. We are finding that certain companies are becoming a little more lenient when it comes to dress code, but I believe that the way you present your self should still be high up on your priority list.
You’re a product of your business” Now I don’t mean, just people that own their own business… NO I mean YOU!! You are your business and how we present ourselves, is very important! 

I had the pleasure of having a chat with the staff from T.M Lewin, a great label from the UK, with an increasing following in Australia… and came across a great style guide, for men and women in the corporate business sector.
This guide allows you to have a brief understanding of what’s safe to wear, when you feel a little out of your comfort zone! 
 

 

PREPARING FOR POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016

polo-in-the-city

It’s that gorgeous time of the year again, where the well known prestigious event is only days away… POLO IN THE CITY SYDNEY 2016!

I am so thrilled to be attending LANDROVER POLO IN THE CITY  Sydney this year, as a VIP Media Guest again… and of course the first thing that came to mind, is ‘What will I wear?’

POLO FASHION, is the ever so glamorous and chic sister to Racing Fashion and the approach of what to wear, should be the same.

FOR THE LADIES…
Think understated elegance, with delicate fabrics and styles.
Lace in ivory, cream or neutral colours, pops of colour and prints, and a touch of monochrome are some of the go to options.

STYLES CAN INCLUDE… soft tailored lines, playsuits, jumpsuits, long gorgeous printed maxi dresses, an easy shift dress, a boho inspired, off the shoulder top and maxi skirt and of course, lets not forget the pant of the season.. a gorgeous delicate culotte!
Polo Fashion, is all about comfort but that shouldn’t affect the glamour!

SHOES…
Polo is NOT the day, to be wearing your latest stiletto purchase. So please opt for a gorgeous leather sandal, comfortable wedge or chunky heel option.

ACCESSORIES…
Sunglasses and a decent size handbag is a MUST…Head wear is not paramount, however a wide brim hat will not only protect you from a day in the sun, but also add some glamour to your outfit! Please NO fascinators!
Jewellery should be complementary to your gorgeous day outfit. Thin delicate pieces, in rose gold, gold or silver are a fashion must have at the moment. However if you’re drawn to more of a statement piece, then opt for it in either gorgeous silver, gold. stones or pops of colour and leave the sparkly diamonte statements pieces at home.

HAIR AND MAKEUP… 
Hair and makeup should be kept natural, but a pop of lip colour can never go astray!

FOR THE MEN…
Just like the ladies, Polo Fashion for men should be approached in the same way! A smart casual look is essential, there is no need to suit up!
The Polo is an opportunity to show off a little more of your personality. Have fun with pops of colour, print on print and add a point of difference.

STYLES CAN INCLUDE… A coloured printed shirt, or pop of colour, tailored pant, chino pants or shorts are a great option. A blazer with a stylish pocket square, is always a great way to complete an outfit. But please keep in mind the weather, if it’s going to be too hot, a shirt is suffice.
There is no requirements to wear a tie, but if you prefer the look then go ahead. A bow tie could always be fun too!

SHOES… 
Smart leather or suede brogues or loafers are a great choice, or a leather boat shoe. Please do not wear thongs!

ACCESSORIES…
Once again, sunglasses should be a must. And for the men wanting that added protection or style, a woven or felt fedora, is a great addition!

THE WINTER COAT | THE MUST HAVE FOR MEN

Adding the must have piece, into your Winter wardrobe!

The wool coat is one of the most must have’s for  Winter this season, for both men and women. And this classic style is not just for your corporate look, but a great piece to be teamed back in your casual wardrobe.
The colours to look out for this season are, black, light grey and camel. Make sure you select the colour that most compliment’s your current wardrobe colour palette.

The winter coat will take you to the office, Monday to Friday and for play on the weekend!

Team it back with your classic tee’s, favourite jeans and sneakers for a more relaxed look.. or add your latest leather boots for a more smarter casual feel!

THE BLAZER…

What’s the must have piece for Winter 2016?

With Autumn knocking on our door soon, (yes it has already to start hitting the stores) the addition of a blazer can take your look from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter with one piece.

The blazer doesn’t have to be your traditional black or navy… this is your opportunity to be a little daring, using different colours, fabrics and textures!

Add it to your basic white tea and favourite jeans and sneakers, for a cool casual street look. Swap your jeans for a pair of chinos and leather shoes, for a more smart casual look.. or add it to a classic collard shirt and suit pants for a more corporate appropriate look.

Anyway you choose to wear your blazer, it’s going to be one of the must have’s this season and a piece that truly won’t date, but instead add value to your wardrobe!

How do you wear your blazer?

CASUAL FRIDAY STYLE INSPIRATION

What should I wear to work, on Casual Friday?

I get allot of requests to teach my clients how to dress for Casual Friday, in the workplace!!

This subject is definitely dependent to your work place and the position you have. Obviously you have a higher role, such as a General Manager or CEO, I believe you should still wear very professional attire, with the option of a more relaxed feel. Keep in mind, that if you still have meetings with external clients, then you should definitely keep to your professional look!

However if you work in a more relaxed environment, then Casual Friday can definitely be incorporated in the work place.
Just keep in mind, Casual Friday is NOT an opportunity, to wear your latest ‘going out’ outfit!! You still want to keep a level of professionalism!

Here’s some examples of Casual Friday Style Inspiration outfits, for both Men and Women that have a more ‘Smart Casual’ feel to them.
If you feel you struggle to know what to wear to work on Casual Friday, please feel to share your questions below and I will share my reply’s. I would also love to see your ‘go to’ Casual Friday outfits!
