When it comes to business wear chic, nobody does it better than our favourite A-listers. When they’re not working Hollywood glamour on the red carpet, their daytime work style is an inspiration to us all. If you’re looking for someone to model your workwear style on, you’ve come to the right place. We take a look at some of our favourite business style icons below, and try not to be green with envy over their to-die-for wardrobes.
These days it’s easy to forget that Victoria Beckham was a Spice Girl. Her Victoria Beckham fashion label is internationally famous and is a regular feature at the world’s biggest fashion weeks, and this has happened through hard work and talent as a designer, rather than relying on her already famous name. It’s no surprise therefore that her work wardrobe is impeccable. From smart trouser/blouse combos to brightly coloured skirt/jackets ‘ her simple but fashionable style is one we can easily recreate for our own workwear. If only we had access to her shoe collection…
Whilst not necessarily a business woman, Kate Middleton’s ‘on duty’ style is one we’d be happy to sport to a business meeting or a client lunch. Always appropriate and tasteful whilst maintaining a fashion forward edge, if you’re ever left wondering what constitutes as ‘acceptable office dress’, look to the Duchess of Cambridge. Recently spotted wearing a stylish Madderson London dress to one of her last engagements before the birth of Princess Charlotte, Kate’s style is easily adopted thanks to her love of both designer and high street brands.
Dita Von Teese
Forget the images that typically spring to mind when you think of Dita Von Teese and think about her business style. An excellent example of dressing for curvier frames, her business dress is classy, sophisticated and doesn’t show the flesh. Sticking to safe colour options such as black and even red throws back to typical office dressing, but the stylish trench coats and pattered scarves and accessories add an individual twist ‘ showing that you can get creative with the right styling.
Here is a little known fact about Jessica Alba ‘ she made more money last year through her company The Honest Company than through her acting projects or endorsements. Alba’s company produces non-toxic products for the home such as baby products, cleaning products and more and is a huge success. Also a success is her business style. Giving office dressing a cool modern twist, her typical look incorporates a blazer and skinny trousers in navy, white and black, whilst some beautiful pencil dresses have also made a big impression. A signature style like Jessica Alba’s is easy to maintain, ensuring that you always look professional, without having to stress too much about what to wear each day.
Whilst we may not have their budgets, or wardrobe space, there’s no denying that these amazing women have given plenty of style inspiration.
