Wardrobe Essentials 101: Must-Have Workwear For Working Mums

As a working mum, I know the importance of stocking up on wardrobe essentials for the office. However, there is always the danger of getting carried away and ending up with too much workwear.

As someone who believes in simplifying and keeping life streamlined, I also believe in having a few classics and then, doing a bit of mix and match to make outfits go from casual to casual chic for the office.

In case you missed it earlier, here’s our post on the classic white shirt and 5 ways to rock it! 

Today, let’s look at some more classic staples for the working mum’s wardrobe, namely, workwear.

1. Basic Coloured Tees

Tees? I know what you’re thinking. “Colleen, a t-shirt isn’t workwear!”Right? 

But hear me out. A fitted t-shirt in a solid colour is a great way to layer up and add style to a casual outfit. Pair this t-shirt with your classic white shirt, pants, throw on a chunky necklace and bracelet,  slip on some heels, and ta-dah, you’re done.


So solid colour t-shirts are a must for a working woman. They’re like singlets, only better!

2. Pants

Like t-shirts, pants in solid colours, like black, white or even, a bright pink are great to have in the working mum’s wardrobe. They hide a multitude of sins and muffins eaten while making her look gorgeously casual yet chic.

Paired with a smart-fitting shirt or t-shirt and accessorized smartly, this pair of pants can take you from the boardroom to the playground with ease. Just remember to kick off the heels!

3. Frocks

Frocks or dresses are another wardrobe essential for working mums. Pair these with a scarf or a jacket depending on the weather, smart heels and a necklace and voila, you’re ready for work in a jiffy!

4. Accessories

Finally, these aren’t really clothing items but they are an integral part of the workwear wardrobe for a mum. The right accessories can make ALL the difference to an outfit. Whether it is an elegant clutch or a pair of bright pumps, choose your accessories to liven up your workwear wardrobe and add splashes of colour and texture!
