2. A Striking Lipstick

Adding a touch of lipstick to your corporate look instantly says ‘out of office’. To perk up wintery hues and knitwear at this time of year, we love a pop-bright pink hue or wine-stained red. If it feels too ‘notice-me’ in a serious workplace, during the day you can go for a smudge of colour and then layer up for a highly-pigmented look to meet friends.

3. Nail Polish to Match

You’d be surprised how easily a quick mani can impact your outfit, especially if you have to stick to neutrals from Monday to Friday. If you’ve got a bit of time to kill after clocking off, add a flash of colour to your fingertips and finish with a statement ring, like this one. Choose a colour that complements your lippy and you’ll soon forget about those unread emails filling up your inbox.

4. Dry Shampoo

Tick off your to-do list with simple and low-key hair that you can easily tweak for an evening look. Sweep you hair into a low ponytail to keep things professional during the day, then let loose as soon as the clock ticks over to 17:00. Tip: use a spiral hair tie to avoid unwanted kinks and stash a mini dry shampoo in your office drawer or handbag for a quick refresh and volume boost.

5. Mouthwash

Speaking of desk drawers, we always have space for at least a travel-sized bottle of mouthwash. An essential if you like your coffee. Feel morning-fresh in 30 seconds (and your friends will thank you.)
