We’re late, we’re broke, we’re too busy to think about it…but does that really mean we can’t dress well anymore? And when did dressing down become a fashion statement? GLAMOUR’s fashion director, Bronwyn Day gives us 9 tips to help you stay stylish:

 

1: Allocate a monthly allowance to your wardrobe to stop splurging and buy wisely.

 

2: Check the weather and plan your outfit the night before –you’re sure to look put together!

 

3: Dress according to your mood, but also your diary. (Meeting? After-work cocktails?).

 

4: Keep a pair of neutral heels in a bag under your desk for those ‘just in case’ moments.

 

5: Stay on top of trends and get clued up on styling by reading magazines and blogs.

 

6: Know your body and assets, and dress to highlight ’em – just not too much!

 

7: Invest in these classics: a neutral trench coat, black or brown leather bag, statement jewellery, a fabulous cocktail dress in black or cream (timeless colours!), a crisp shirt, tailored trousers, a cardigan and jeans that flatter your shape. Done!

 

8: Keep a neat coif with a trim every six weeks. Failing all else, be sure to keep locks clean.

 

9: Whatever happens, stay appropriate. Don’t let your sweatpants make it to work. Ever.
