We all want to make our workwear attire send the right message. I want to look powerful and commanding and give the keen lady boss vibes! Well, if you ask me, giving your attire a sharp and bold lady boss persona isn’t that hard. All it takes is confidence and all the right workwear staples. I’ve picked out all the workwear essentials that you'll need to stun your co-workers and bosses with your lady boss charm.

Let's take a look:


Shift Dresses

New to shift dresses? Get excited! In case you aren’t sure about its details, a shift dress is a short dress that is more modest in showing your body shape. These dresses were glamorized by style icons Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn in the ‘50s and ‘60s. They tend to be plain with A-line skirts, empire waists, and may be sleeveless. Shift dresses are a must-have for workwear. They brim up your statement with elegance and polished grace. You can flaunt these shift dresses with sharp blazers, stockings, and black Jimmy Choo’s.

Sharply Structured Blazers

A woman simply cannot amplify her lady boss vibes at work if she doesn’t own enough different designs and colors in sharp blazers. Consider these dark hued blazers to set the tone for formal dressing. Pair them up with your statement blouses, pencil skirts, sheath dresses, and ankle pants.

Mix in variety with neutral tones, such as black, blue, white, nude, tan, and browns. You can also be a trendsetter at work by sneaking in designs such as military-style blazers, cardigan jackets, leather blazers, and squared-shoulders.

Structured Totes

The importance of a structured and dark-hued tote simply cannot be denied. It is vital to infuse your lady boss vibes with contemporary chicness. Totes allow a working woman like you to carry belongings in style, while also speaking volumes about your style savviness and vogue. Consider investing in brands such as Michael Kors, Coach, Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Celine. For more accessories check out some of my summer accessories ideas!

Pencil Bodycon

Whoever invented bodycon-fit pencil dresses did womankind a HUGE favor! These dresses allow us to play up our curves without worrying about minor imperfections. A pencil dress is just what a woman needs to slim down her waist and give her curvature a structured appeal. I think I own an endless variety of pencil dresses and use them to break the monotony of blazers and suits with its ravishing curve-highlighting fit. I adore how pencil dresses allow us to strike all the right chords of sexiness without compromising any of the cardinal rules of workwear elegance.

Big-Dial Watch

A high-end designer watch featuring a big glossy dial is a must-have accessory for the working woman. A bold watch smartens up a working woman's personality and style. Select the right watch to seal all your workwear statements and expect a designer watch to infuse your outfit with powerful lady boss vibes.

Sheath Dresses

Sheaths are sharply structured dresses that highlight each and every inch of our curvature. Sheaths cinch up the waist and giving our figures a shapely and proportionate look. These dresses are a must-have trend for work as they make women look incredibly smart, charming, and sharp. Regardless of your profession, you simply can’t go wrong with bold-hued and feminine printed sheath dresses. Color coordinate these with other items using my color composition ideas. Honestly, these work for any and every occasion. Be it a board meeting or a formal lunch with your clients, these dresses will bring out the best in your body!

Pointy-Toe Pumps

The perfect way to complete a smart workwear statement is with a voguishly chic pair of pointy-toe pumps. You can pick out the perfect heel height for your own outfits. I believe that if a woman doesn’t feel comfortable in high heels, she shouldn't force her feet through the ordeal. So, choose your pick from block heeled pumps, kitten heels, stiletto pumps, and the massively trend mule sandals.

Wrap Dresses

These insanely voguish wrap dress drape your curves with chic folds of fabric, which gives your bust a structured appeal, shrouds belly fat and makes the figure look smarter and slimmer. They help women give a sensual fit to their curvy busts, so if you want to strike all the right chords of sensuality at work, you must own these in an endless variety. I strongly urge you to play them up in dark colors like navy blue, maroon, red and berry.

Pencil Skirts

If you want to do justice to your bust and curvature, set a meeting to checkout the sensual elegance of pencil skirts. I love my high-waisted pencil skirt as it tucks in the gently protruding muffin tops, making my waist look petite and curvy. These beauties are your best trick to sneak in some bold colors and prints into your workwear wardrobe. A good pencil skirt perfectly amplifies your lady boss vibes. You can flaunt these beauties with cropped tailored jackets, blazers, chiffon blouses, silk tops, and lots more.

Fit & Flare Workwear

For women who seek to infuse their lady boss vibes with feminine sensuality, fit & flare dresses are their best pick. These voguishly chic dresses have an infectiously charming ladylike-vibe, and they are designed to highlight a femme’s petite waist and slim down her bust with a romantic flare and above-the-knee finish.

Power Suits

The Parisian femmes are some of the most graceful and elegant women in the world! They never shy away from flaunting the boldness of a sharply structured power suit. You see ladies, a moment of menswear can brim up your personality with confidence and boldness as it gives your feminine charm a masculine power.

Be careful to avoid those awkwardly lanky and loose suits, they will only deny the curvature of your body. The trick is to pick out a ravishingly fitted suit with a plunging V-neck. Play up your subtle sensuality and fit your body like second-skin. Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton will treat you to a splendid variety to shop this trend.
