It’s quite a balancing act to successfully build a wardrobe that suits your needs for work, casual and formal.

You may hate it but having a uniform for work is a godsend because it takes choice out of the equation and you can concentrate on your non-work collection.

If, however, your workwear is entirely your choice, I’m sure you identify with the millions of women who wake up every morning and wonder what to wear today.

There are some simple rules if you want to dress for success today, and every day.2

1. Thou Shalt Create a Wardrobe with Staples

According to Coco Chanel, who practically wrote the commandments of a workwear wardrobe at the start of the 20th century, a lady needs only a handful of well-chosen garments and accessories to always look stylish.

A sleek pencil skirt, a little black shift dress, a well-fitted, uni-colored wrap dress, a quality handbag and an elegant silk scarf - these are work wardrobe basics every gal should have.

Buying matching and contrasting items of well-made clothes will turn you into a stylish lady from Monday to Friday.

2. Thou Shalt Create Mix and Match Balance

That means out with your outrageous multi-colored floral frock and in with a classic but ultra-chic white button-down.

Mix and match can include bold colors and graphic prints, as long as you combine them with calmer uni-colored items.

3. Thou Shalt Wear Comfortable Heels

Invest in comfy heels instead of buying kitten heels or stilettos that won't see you through the day.

Less is more.

Instead of 50 pairs of shoes, out of which 25 pairs pinch and give you blisters, buy only 10 pairs that fit like a slipper!

The investment money needed is about the same.

4. Thou Shalt Understand the Art of Layers

Wearing layers is not only an art form fashion wise.

In offices where air conditioning rules, wearing layers can protect you from feeling either too hot or too cold.

Take your style to the next level: start off with a sleek pencil skirt, add a smart waistcoat over your blouse, then follow up with a cashmere wrap, chic blazer or jacket.
