Fed up of being told what you're not allowed to wear if you're over 40 and above? This is the podcast for you. London personal stylist Lisa Gillbe speaks to a mix of experts & friends to bring you honest, insightful personal stories and practical advice on everything related to fashion, style, beauty & image.

There is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach here because we are all different but there are core pieces you need to build a functional work wardrobe. Most of us now work in a smart/casual environment and that requires matching separates. For some of us that is a huge daily headache! Many people simply do not have the time to work out what is needed in the wardrobe let alone track down the pieces in the shops. Lisa shares her comprehensive list of items that will make sure your wardrobe works together and gives you a smart, stylish and polished look for work. If you are looking to raise your game at work this is the podcast for you. We all deserve a fantastic wardrobe that helps us look our best and creates opportunities in the workplace! If you work with lots of younger people, avoid looking like the older Mum character in the corner and listen to Lisa's tips on what is current and what is OUT. Power dressing for work these days looks very different to how it did even five years ago and hooray for that! Nowadays we can be more authentically ourselves in what we wear and show who we really are.
