This week as an office outfit, why not try a smart pencil dress?
Going to work or simply choosing an outfit for a corporate event can be quite daunting for some.
I layered one of my favourite shirt with a pencil dress. Though I initially thought the green colour was a bit too vibrant, The jacket had to help tone it down.
However, as the creative bubble that I am, I matched the dress with some pattern heels and added a statement piece on my neck.
Last week article was about my role as a creative director of a recent photoshoot I worked on.(Read here…) The week that followed was time to return all the garments to respective designers and PR houses.On the same day, I also had a meeting for a new project I will be working on. If everything goes as planned, will probably be the biggest task I have ever set myself to do…So stay tuned to find out.
After the meeting, we shoot some pictures of my outfit with an iPhone by the way.Though, most of my outfits lately have been all about work comfort.Complimented with ankle boots and a sparkly one in this case.
I was recently offered this male oversized sweater which I have been hooked on since.It is an easy fit and the faux leather on the sleeves adds a sleek finish.Worn with an old but goody high waisted patched jeans, then a sleeveless denim jacket was added to seal the street is chic look.
Ps: Another alternative for the Not-so-keen on heels will be a traditional pair of trainers for a more casual look.

When attending an important meeting, it is essential to look our best. Whether it’s in a creative industry or corporate world and as Tom Ford once said: “Dressing well is a form of good manner”.
I had a meeting in Canary Wharf which is probably one of the most corporate places in London. And as a creative, it’s important to let my personality shine through everything.
I wore this Leopard prints top and red bottom which is a combination that never fails. As the blouse was sleeveless, a navy fitted blazer was added to smarten the look for a more work-appropriate style.This outfit could also be worn for a day out or an evening event.
What I will suggest if you aren’t confident enough to pull red trousers is to wear a burgundy pencil skirt or trousers. which is a mellow down but still a colour touch. To conclude, the accessories are optional, a black clutch or even no scarf at all will still keep the dynamic of the outfit.
So,I would like to know how confident you will feel about rocking red trousers for your next outing.Share!!

I wrote a piece about the amazing designer Samson Soboye during the Africa Fashion Week London Here and I loved his designs so much that I decided to style one of his outstanding piece : A cleverly designed collared bib made in cotton wax prints fabric with tie straps for fastening.That can be worn under a jacket and looks like a shirt or over a shirt/t-shirt/tank for a smart but casual look like in this case.
