In London I was struck by how well dressed the business men were, their seemingly natural knack of that British look, think Burberry, think Ralph Lauren, but better, much more elegant, better put together yet so effortless. It was in their nature. Some would call it breeding.

I never liked the office clothes people wore in Sydney, I remember seeing a lot of white jogging shoes worn walking to work with a suit, for men and women. Horrendous! “My eyes!! They burn, my eyes!!!” Ok ok, that was a little over the top, but you have to admit, it’s a horrendous look. Men, at least invest in some black leather sneakers, there are some great dressy and comfortable ones out there. Women, wear flats! Hello!!!

I’ve started working already, it’s 9 to 5, so I’m rushing around at peak hours and well, funnily enough, amongst the jogging shoes, I’m seeing some rather stylish office outfits. Sydney, I’m impressed. You lot aren’t half bad.

I shall be collecting some more office outfits in the near future and bringing them to you.

Just because you work in a corporate office it doesn’t mean you should automatically dress bad and boring. Put a little effort into it, invest in a well cut suit that actually fits you, not 2 sizes too big, because you think a fitting suit looks gay, a baggy suit makes you look so much older. Ladies, buy some flats to walk to work in, not hideous white jogging shoes, even black havianas will do the job.

This all leads to a top secret project I will be starting tomorrow which is office related, it’ll be a new recurring feature I will be doing for xssat here, but not always office related. Oh, I better shut up now before I give everything away. Be patient kids! You’ll see the results soon enough.
