New year, new you – the way I see it, there’s no better time like January to reinvent yourself. Like many other ladies, I’m starting 2015 with a sparkling new career and a #girlboss attitude.

Determined to look the part of a savvy, switched on and stylish, Marketing Coordinator, I’ve invested in a few staple pieces to keep me looking professional and most importantly, #bosschic. After all, if history has taught us anything, it’s that you don’t rise to power status by dressing like a dag. Surely this explains Jacqueline O’s legacy (and the secret to marrying a Kennedy).

Presenting my  Top 5 Tips to looking #bosschic. 

1. You are the bag you carry.

Think clean, sharp accessories with minimal detail and statement status. I’m not suggesting that you spend your car down payment on a bag, but consider sophisticated, high quality, everyday labels like Oroton and Michael Kors.

Leave the print to the weekends and instead opt for an interest fabric, like this croc look leather Oroton tote. The gold hardware offers that detail factor without being OTT.

2. Organized individuals dominate.

Have you ever met an unorganized executive? Neither have I. While we can’t all hire an assistant to keep track of our professional schedule, a planner or diary can do just that. And if you’re a visual person like me, it’s nice to have visual reminder right in front of you, (with the added bonus of shopping at Kikki K).

3. Embrace your Clark Kent mode.

Gone are the days of those “four eyes” quips. Einstein had it right all along, intelligence is sexy! I’m totally embracing my optical deficiency with a bold, cat eye frame. One sophisticated new image and 10+ points added to my IQ later and I’m realizing the symbol of status here. After all, they are not just glasses, they’re Prada.

4. Your scent is your signature. 

Just as a fox knows its own scent, it’s pretty obvious when someone is wearing a cheap, sugary Eau de Toilette perfume. Save yourself the embarrassment and spritz on something elegant, in the form of a parfum. My favourite scents include anything by Elie Saab, Balenciaga, Chanel and Kate Spade.

5. Powder your nose. 

Visiting the lady’s powder room for a quick makeup touch up, has never been so convenient then with a compact cosmetic pouch to house your beauty secrets. My Louis Vuitton Cosmetic Pouch has enough space to hold my Napoleon Camera Finish Powder and 5 Mac lipsticks- that’s one for everyday of the working week!
