It’s officially the fourth day of the new year. By now, we should have packed away our party outfits, accept the hard fact that the holidays are over, get organised and figure out a game plan on how to achieve our goals for the months to come.

While our housekeeping and life goals may be serious and challenging, it’s crucial that we don’t neglect our sartorial choices at work!

We’ve always emphasised the importance of work wear here at herworldPLUS, if only for the fact that when you feel good in your clothes, your confidence levels will definitely enjoy a boost. 

That said, I understand that rolling into the office after experiencing the #PartyLife for the past couple of weeks isn’t always the easiest, so we are here to help. 

Ahead, we’ve strung together two outfits for your consideration. They are super easy to put together but pack a solid sartorial punch that will knock everyone out at the boardroom. 

(L-R) Cotton knit with contrast trims, $59.90 from Topshop; 18K gold vintage Cartier Watch, price unavailable; Cotton wide leg cropped pants, $713 by Delpozo from Farfetch.com; Leather heels, $ by Aldo; Leather bag, $6,500 by Fendi 

This outfit is perfect for ladies who are all about the holiday lounging vibes.

Pairing a comfortable yet on-trend frilled sleeved knit with crisp and white trousers that are anchored by a statement watch and a no-nonsense structured bag, you are a living testament to how comfort and style can co-exist seamlessly. 


(L-R) Cotton and Silk wrap dress, $700 by Diane von Furstenberg; Stainless steel bracelet watch, $1,790 by Longines from Lordandtaylor.com; Leather Capucine bag by Louis Vuitton, $8,500; Metal enamel earrings, $350 by Versace; Leather heels, $1105, by Gianvito Rossi

Make a refreshing entrance at your office with this playful yet sophisticated striped number from Diane von Furstenberg.

Let the dress do all the talking and keep your accessories muted with some hints of polished silver hardware to brighten up the look and you’ll be well on your way to turning heads.
