A good workwear wardrobe should include a number of staple items, one of which is a good quality black blazer. Over the years I’ve come to realise how important it is to invest properly in these wardrobe staples, so that not only do they see you through the years, but save you money in the long run too.
When I first started working in the City almost 10 years ago now, each payday I would go shopping and buy soooo many clothes. Yet despite having a ton of items hanging up in my wardrobe, they only lasted a couple of months before I had to replace them. I was looking in my wardrobe earlier, and I realised not one piece of clothing from back then has made it into 2018!
It was around 5 years ago that I started shopping smarter. Instead of buying lots of cheap, high fashion items, I began investing my money wiser and building up my staple wardrobe over time.
I’ve recently discovered a brand that make it easy when shopping for these workwear essentials, as well as affordable without sacrificing the quality. Let me introduce you to robin b.I love sharing brands with you that I feel passionate about, and robin b. is one of them. They are a women owned company, headed up by CEO and designer Robin who has spent her life in the retail and tech space. Robin was inspired to create the robin b. clothing brand after finding a gap in the market for luxurious basics at an affordable price.
robin b. provide all the essentials needed to build the perfect working wardrobe. They even have an essentials bundle you can purchase and save over $200, which include a blazer, pencil skirt, trousers, tops and a dress.
The entire production from start to finish is done in the US, which allows them to have a more hands on approach to the designs and production. The stitching and fabric is to such a high standard you will be shocked at how affordable the pieces are!
robin b. believe in quality over quantity, which is something I completely relate to. As I said earlier, this is something I learnt the importance of over the years and talk about a lot on my blog. My approach to shopping for workwear has completely changed, and I now treat myself to a piece of clothing every few months I know will last me a lifetime and can be used to create a number of different outfits.
Wearing this black blazer, I have never felt more confident strutting along the streets of London to work. I felt empowered and motivated to achieve my goals for the day. For me, and I’m sure I speak for a lot of women, the key to a productive day starts with how we feel inside. This is something robin b. feel strongly about too. They have a strong desire to see all women prosper, and are passionate in supporting our pursuit to succeed.
