Stylish workwear ideas for right now in Canberra

Fashion trends are fluid, changing season to season, and year to year. But the rules around what to wear to work – especially in Canberra – have evolved more slowly. Sure, things have changed, but in most offices around Canberra the dress code is still reasonably conservative.

But don’t confuse conservative with boring. Canberra stylist and influencer Janette Wojtaszak, from The Statement Life, says that when it comes to officewear, there’s no reason you can’t let your style shine. “Dare to be different! Express your style personality at work – who says you can’t wear a statement earring or necklace?”

With that in mind, we’ve selected 5 key pieces to add to your spring work wardrobe. Corporate, relaxed, creative or somewhere in between: these items will make your existing wardrobe feel like new. Keep scrolling for chic, wearable outfit ideas to take the stress out of your Monday mornings.

Wide-leg trousers

These are an office staple for this time of year. Wide-leg trousers work in even the most corporate of offices, plus this flattering style can easily be worn well into the warmer months. Pair with heeled boots, leather mules or floss sandals when it warms up.

Cigarette pants

If in doubt, you can always rely on a pair of straight-leg, tailored cigarette trousers with just a hint of ankle. These add instant professionalism to any outfit, and look their best when worn with a low heel, and a shirt or sweater tucked in.
