The key to a working, workwear wardrobe is to keep it capsule and update it to keep it current with small seasonal updates. Simples!
I recommend investing in one suit (if you have to wear suits to work) two blazers, one dark and one neutral, one dress, skirt and one pair of tailored trousers that are all flattering to your figure and in classic and simple shapes. After this add tops in the form of or something simpler if that's your taste, blouses and some classic crew neck tops- tee's or light knits depending on the season for layering. Lastly and key is a great pair of shoes. Essentially investing in 8 pieces for your workwear wardrobe will see you through for 4-5 years if you buy timeless pieces. As always, I recommend buying the best that "you" can afford.
Workwear doesn't need to be boring. If you prefer colour to neutrals, I suggest adding colour in small ways with colour pops by way of your tops, shoes or simple accessories. Obviously if your job is less corporate and more creative or somewhere in the middle you will know the level of formality to dress to.
With many people working from home now, denim with a smart blazer is a viable option.
Investing in your workwear wardrobe doesn't have to cost a fortune. Marks and Spencers, Cos, The Outnet, DVF and ZARA are great places to start your search.
