Congratulations! You have just started your professional career. It’s a lot to grapple with – you are now building new stage of life, getting immersed in a new environment with new people.
And this is also the beginning of a new wardrobe.
The professional wardrobe, you see, is almost a whole new module/subject/language/science all together. Dressing like an adult ain’t easy, and it could be quite an expensive project. One thing for sure, it’s time to retire your usual blogshop favorites of skirts with short hemline cutting to mid thigh or crop top that barely keep your belly button covered.

For Tory Burch fans, aside for the flagship store at Wisma Atria, you can now shop the brand at Changi Airport Terminal 1 Departure Hall. Managed by DFS, this sprawling 104sqm boutique showcases a wide range of bags, leather goods, shoes, sunglasses and even clothes!
I would imagine how convenient it would be for time-strapped business travelers to assemble their wardrobe necessities from the store!
The sophisticated black and gold look for the fuss-free corporate ladies, featuring the Tory Burch Fleming Tote, which boasts ladylike quilting and chains. Luxurious and spacious, this roomy bag can accommodate your documents and laptop, as well as other travel knick knacks. Match it with the Robinsons wristlet and namecard holder, printed scarf and Bea leather pumps, this ensemble is a simple get-up that complements any colours and accessories.
I am not sure if you are familiar with Sacoor Brothers. First, it’s NOT a men’s store. Founded in Lisbon (Portugal), the label offers both menswear and women’s collection. Second, the overall look and feel of their clothes is preppy, refined and classic. In my opinion, it’s a good place to source for the corporate staples such as the fitted shirts, pencil skirts and blazers.
I have been invited by the brand to come up with two outfits from their current collection. You can now vote for your favorite look and 5 lucky winners will win S$200 Sacoor Brothers voucher each!
Outfit 1: Peplum and Gathers
Button Blouse: Sacoor Brothers | Peplum brocade skirt: Sacoor Brothers | Heels: Tod’s | Necklace: Bangkok
For a start, I am no fan of the Kardashians. I also disapprove the pairing of tights and a short top because simply put, “tights are not pants”.
Apart from that, I think Round 2 of the Kardashian Kollection is actually decent for the everyday corporate chick.
Make a guess – whose Spring Summer collection is this? A hint – it’s British.
The weather in Singapore currently is cold and rainy. That’s probably the most wintry we can get here and it’s the opportune time to keep warm and wear sweaters!
So the question is, how to integrate the sweater for different occasions?
Many people might have the impression of Victoria Beckham as the woman who never smiles. Nonetheless, in terms of sartorial sense, there are little nuggets that we could take a leaf out of her book. It is interesting to note that Posh seems to be exuding more career woman chic in the recent years, given her new identity as a designer behind her own brand.

Go for a good fit, and match the bright colour with neutral shades such as black or navy.
