We’ve got more #fashioninspo for you, with the second edition of 2018’s Fashion Files!

Classics with Jackie and Corina

When in doubt, stick to the classics. Black and white is always in style, and a staple of every professional’s closet.

Jackie and Corina,

How do you save time and effort getting dressed for the office? 

JBy wearing lots of dresses, because a dress is easy to throw on and match with a blazer. I often pair a colourful dress and a black blazer and heels.

C: Planning what I’m going to wear the night before helps me get that extra ten minutes of sleep in the morning.

What is your go-to place to shop for work? 

JRW & Co.

C: Zara, Reiss, and Banana Republic.

What is your favourite fashion accessory?

J: I love to accent with a great pair of shoes.

C: A smile.  

Spill the tea – who is your CBB fashion icon?

JOur very own Ms. Thea Gaertner.

C: Robyn Blumberg and Amanda Metallo.

 

Suiting Up with Kieran

We love Kieran’s subtle pinstripe on this navy number. Suits don’t have to be boring!

Kieran, 

How do you save time and effort getting dressed for the office? 

Remember to KISS, “Keep It Simple Sweetheart”. It’s easy to match your work outfit when you have staples in basic colours. Try a plain or discrete patterned navy or grey suit, with a white or light blue shirt.

What is your go-to place to shop for work? 

You can find cheap, decent quality ties at Winners, The Bay, and Marshalls at a good price.

What is your favourite fashion accessory?

A watch, matching the colour of the strap with my shoes and belt.

Ed: Please forgive the inside joke, and unless it’s Casual Friday you should definitely wear a tie fellas. In fact, keeping a spare in the office isn’t a bad idea.

 

Suiting Up with Aaron

Aaron’s beautiful tie is a great way to accent a classic suit. And brown shoes with navy are always the perfect choice. 

Aaron,
