Some of us are super organised. Some of us plan our outfits the night before. Some even plan five days worth of outfits on a Sunday night. Then there’s those of us who would rather not surface until after lunch time. The one thing we all have in common is that most of us have to go to work.
Every day at least one online publication (ourselves included) write about the morning routines of the a-listers and the world’s most successful people, most of whom are our role models. While they’re up at the crack of dawn, exfoliating, working out, changing the world, we’re dragging ourselves out of bed after hitting snooze for the sixth time and staring into our wardrobes desperately, in the hope that if we stand there long enough, a killer outfit will reveal itself. Sadly, nine times out of ten, this isn’t the case.
It’s funny how we spend so much time agonising over the perfect interview outfit but upon starting the job, the effort and inspiration dwindles. We spend five days a week, 9am-5pm in the workplace and yet every morning it’s the same struggle to find a balance between work appropriate clothing and clothing we actually want to wear and feel good in. While it’s refreshing to see the sartorial steer of workwear turning to a more casual approach, the rise of these new rules and sudden blurring of lines creates an entirely new minefield when choosing your work appropriate outfit for the day.
To ease the stress of the morning grind, we’ve scoured Instagram for the best influencer inspired workwear looks to try this week.
