Dressing from Desk to Dinner, by Michaela Jedinak

When choosing the right attire for your business travels it needs to tick a lot of boxes. A dress needs to be versatile, comfortable, crease as little as possible, give you a professional image and still look good. I believe you need a power dress that can take you from desk to dinner, that you can easily mix and match for all your different meetings. With limited baggage allowances and busy schedules, it is all about versatile dressing and using accessories to create different looks.


Here we see Carolyn Pearson, CEO of  maiden-voyage.com in my red Anna dress.  Her day look was based on a vintage Prada coat, which she accessorised with LK Bennett’s nude shoes and nude bag. In order to keep her look current, with a seasonal flair she wore a coral lippy and red and pink printed scarf.Master Blog

For cocktail hour, Carolyn swapped her coral lipstick for a red lipstick, the nude bag for a classic black Chanel chain purse, and her nude pumps for Christian Louboutin’s New Simple Pump.

Carolyn completed her evening look with jewellery, a Double Disc Silver necklace and Silver ‘Happy Hour’ hoop earrings by Astrid & Miyu.

The Anna dress is an ideal choice as it complements Carolyn’s full hourglass silhouette beautifully. It reinforces her performance rather than distracts from it. The Anna dress is elegant with a classic and feminine style, which makes her feel comfortable when attending all her business meetings and is a great alternative to suits. This dress is made out of 96% luxurious Italian cloth with the Woolmark trademark and 4% with Elastane for comfort  and movement. The dress is fully lined to provide a perfect fit and is “Made in the UK” to provide the best quality. This dress is designed not to last just for one business outing but for many more to come. It is an ideal staple for any business women’s travel wardrobe. 

The Little Red Dress for business travel.

A “Little Red Dress” for Carolyn’s  business trips is a smart choice because it is a colour that makes you feel good and energises you from day to evening. This vibrant colour naturally supports a busy day of non-stop performance and makes the wearer look and feel dynamic. The red that I use in all of my dresses is as modern as it is elegant and will be always a timeless colour. This little red dress is an ideal choice for any business travel, because it allows you to move, sit and walk in comfort when travelling and doing business, taking you seamlessly from desk to dinner.
