SOS: new work shirts!

Clothes

SOS ALERT!

We received an SOS email from one of our readers recently. Her name is Sarah and she’s just returned home to Australia after nearly 12 months of travelling overseas. She’s landed herself a fantastic new job, so now it’s time to update the wardrobe.

Working in digital media, Sarah doesn’t need to dress too ‘corporate’, she just needs to look smart, cool and classy. As a starting point she wants to have a good base of work tops to choose from and she mentioned she likes sleeveless, button down shirts.

There’s nothing we love more than an online shopping challenge… Here you go Sarah, hope you enjoy!

As you’ve just been travelling Sarah we tried to find options that were affordable for any budget. We also tried to include a good mix of colour, prints and embellishment so you can use your work tops to shake up a multitude of outfits. And a lot of them have a long silhouette so you can wear them over leggings or skinny jeans for effortless work attire.
