Work wear classic: Skirt and white blouse

Who run the world? Girls — Beyonce 

If the American Presidential elections have proved anything it is this: that women no matter how experienced, how passionate and how hardworking she is, she has to work double the amount than any man to get the same position.

Women, have been constantly told that they have to be strong but not strong enough, clever but not clever enough and dare if she has an opinion about anything she would become “nasty” instantly.

You do not need Presidential elections to show you that gender issues especially in the work place are, for a lack of better word, skewed. Women, by nature, are incredible: we are strong, powerful, versatile and most women I know handle several million things without battling an eyelid with a charm only we possess.

Unfortunately, even in 2016 this does not get translated into equal opportunities, equal wages and an over-all respect for woman kind. I can only wish and hope that the future generation does not have to wage the same battle.

However, despite all the challenges thrown at women, we continue to rise up to it, not even bothering about the glass ceiling. And it is really heartening to see some men joining her and strengthening her.

What has all this got to do with fashion and clothes, you wonder? Well, a lot. With so many challenges already present why should sartorial work choices become another dilemma? My work wardrobe has few essentials: skirts, blouses in various hues, dark jeans (because it is allowed) and some well-fitting trousers. I also like to inject colour every now and then to my work wardrobe via accessories, shoes and subtle prints.

Here, I am wearing a white blouse (which every woman should have) with a knee length skirt featuring spiffy, tiny roses. I like to keep it simple for work. So, I have used minimal accessories: a delicate chain with owl pendant and owl earrings and my favourite coral pumps. Keep it chic and simple, I say.

Skirt: Dubai (also like this one), blouse: Next, Pumps: BHS and Bag: Kate Spade (gifted)

For my face, I have used primer from Barry M, concealer, CC cream from Bourjouis and finally dusted it off with some powder from Revlon. On my lips, I have used Mac’s Chatterbox and baby lips lip balm from Maybelline.

But the most important thing you need to carry at work is confidence (fake it, if you must) and do not forget: who runs the world? Girls.
