Beck Wadworth of An Organised Life is known for her minimalist style and love for organisation. Here, she styles a work wardrobe using her top five pieces- all classics of course - and shares some career advice.
"When it comes to building a career focused wardrobe, personally for me, it’s all about investing in key silhouettes that can easily be styled into multiple classic and timeless looks. I always want my outfits to reflect my personality which in turns makes me feel confident and ready to take on the world. Below are a few of the key pieces I think every woman should have when building a versatile workwear wardrobe."
"Always make sure you throw some pieces in your wardrobe that reflect you and your individuality as well. These key styles are just the base pieces I think are great staples when building your workwear wardrobe. For example - I love fun accessories including unique earrings, gold layered necklaces and timeless bags that reflect my signature minimal and monochrome style."
1. A WHITE SHIRT
"I love a soft linen style that can be worn with a black pant, denim, or a white linen skirt and kitten heels."
2. A BLACK BLAZER
"A key layering piece for every season, whenever I pop on a classic black blazer, I feel the absolute best: Feminine, chic and powerful."
3. A CLASSIC BLACK CAMI
"A staple separate that I highly suggest getting in multiple colours and fabrics. The understated classic black cami is the perfect piece for pairing with multiple looks including a black suit pant and blazer or even a pencil skirt and sneakers."
4. A WRAP SKIRT
"So flattering, a wrap skirt is one piece I think is an essential when building a career-focused wardrobe. Pair it back with a cami and a blazer, relaxed shirts and much more. ."
5. A LINEN CO-ORD SET
"I’m slightly obsessed with co-ord sets! They are such an easy go-to in my workwear wardrobe and I always feel effortlessly put together in them. Lately I have been opting for neutral toned sets that I can dress up with a strappy heel or go more casual with a classic black slide and a statement black bag. I always mix and match these sets into other outfits by using them as neutral toned separates too."

Trust your gut - always!
Be prepared to work hard. Focus and be patient. Hard work always pays off.
Never stand still, always look forward, keep learning and asking questions.
