There’s something about the phrase “girl boss”, which makes it sound powerful. We are the “she wolves” of the business empire, progressively climbing on a pair of sharp stilettos. For all of my ladies who show up at the office turning heads, and everyone who simply enjoys the elegance of a formal outfit, I give you my top picks from ASOS! Being constantly busy on your feet means less time browsing the malls for a good deal. ASOS is a convenient and quick way to catch a few much-needed pieces, which is why I have chosen to use it for this “inspiration” post. Enjoy!
We’re starting off simple. Everyone needs a classic, black dress. It’s easy to style, you can match it to almost any new trend and mostly, it’s just a thoughtless fix to a hurried morning. Number one, we have a basic shirt dress. They have been coming in for a while and January is a good time to extenuate that style! Pair it with some screaming booties or a collection of long necklaces for a perfect everyday look. Second, comes a more casual outfit – a stressed & dyed denim piece. High heels make it elegant, a long trench gives it formality. Lastly, we have a textured black dress, which would go perfectly with heavy jewellery, anything chunky – throw it on.
Texture, texture, texture! I am mad about different textures this month, which goes to explain choice number one. Comfy, cut leg and tailored waist? Yes, please! Next up, we have a military-inspired look, which is vamped-up by its greys, making it not as harsh and definitely work-friendly. The very last model is more of a beige colour than a grey, but it deserved a spot on this list for being so darn cute. Perfect mixture between its first two companions.
Trousers are a wardrobe staple because of their endless practicality! No “girl boss” is complete without a pair of snazzy leg warmers to show off those toned limbs. Throw this with a timeless rusty shade and you’ve got yourself a winner. The first pair is a more statement one. Pair it with a colour block shirt, something red or white, plus some matching kicks. The second and third are both sheer, flowing design, which will slim you down and amp the comfort levels sky high. High heels are the way to go, bet on deep blacks or nudes.
I don’t have much to add about a red dress. These fashion titans are self-explanatory and every lady comes to a point in her life where one is needed. The Paisie model is a solid red with some subtle sleeve detailing and a cut out collar. Life’s too short not to experiment with collars, people! Get to it. Secondly, we have a more velvety, long dress with a wide cigar bottom. The v-slice in the middle is a dead-on charmer! Thirdly, faux leather for my badass girl bosses out there. They have some rough stitching around the sleeves and neck, which give it a boost of rocker-chick vibe, while still keeping its formality. Definitely my number one pick from this set!
Why, I wouldn’t dream of making a workaholic pick list without a set of gorgeous bags! We need somewhere to stick the tablets and cell phones, among spread sheets and a billion pens. First off, starting with a Fiotelli crab, which is the most affordable out of the three! However, its design, featuring that sweet and banging leopard print front, is to kill for. Post that, hashtag it, live for it! Second down, Love Moschino’s quilted tote. Style and more style, this tote screams sleekness and success. Black and gold is always a good combination. Always. Last to go, A Paul’s Boutique classic bag. It’s spacious and conservative, except for the fun twist of colour in its straps. This one’s for my minimalist ladies. Dig it.
Shoe maniac speaking, let’s get down to business! Whether you’re wearing shorter trousers or the mentioned jumpsuits, this first pair of ankle boots is glossy and ever-so-slightly grunge. The buckle on top makes me blush. Gorgeous design at a sick price! Secondly, here come the red shoes to match that red dress! I couldn’t possibly forget a good outfit opportunity, could I now? I absolutely adore the cut out middle, combined with the stick-thin top strap. Ugh, look at those arching peepers! Lastly, voting for a comfortable classic. The Chelsea boot is an old companion – style them with any outfit and enjoy a day in an out with warmth! Yes, thank you.
So, enjoy the office days, or shall I say the elegant lifestyle as a whole! Please comment which pieces you like most, or if I managed to miss any good picks, do slide them in! I would love to read them.
