This free virtual workshop and Q&A is aimed at female lawyers (particularly those who are seeking to return to the legal profession after lengthy career breaks) who are looking to bolster their professional image by revamping their workwear wardrobe.

Host and style coach Melanie Potro (see below for full bio) will cover all you need to know about how to dress with confidence, and build a wardrobe that will not only make you feel great but is also fit for purpose.

Whether it’s a result of two years of working from home, or a career break, your business attire is likely to look dated, especially if your body shape has changed during this period. Indeed, this combined with business dress codes continuously evolving, knowing what to wear to the office is a minefield, even for the most fashion conscious lawyers.

This lively and fast-paced 60-mins interactive session will give participants practical and easy to implement tips on how to distinguish yourself by dressing with impact. Present yourself as the expert you are, hit the right tone with your appearance. Look professional and stylish, and never boring or frumpy.

Discover how to put together a workwear wardrobe that fits your role and your body, and projects confidence.

We will cover:

  • First impressions: What does your appearance really say about you?

  • Spring / summer wardrobe essentials for hybrid working – including current trends

  • Finding a style that complements your body shape

  • How to dress for virtual meetings

You’ll leave the session feeling confident and have a clearer idea of how to dress for success. You’ll also feel more inspired and motivated to start putting your workwear wardrobe together.


Melanie PotroFor me it’s all about the fit – your clothes should fit your role, your personality and your body. Clothes should serve you as a tool to elevate your career and personal brand.

Having created costumes for the Bolshoi and run my own bridal couture business in London, as well as, worked for Goldman Sachs, I have a unique insight to inspire and empower professional women to flourish in their careers, by creating a signature style that is aligned with their personality and career goals.

As a mum of two daughters, I fully appreciate how your confidence can be affected when your body changes. Off-the-peg clothes that used to fit well no longer cut it and the return to a workplace after years of absence can be intimidating. You’re anxious because you no longer know if you still fit in and how others will perceive you.

Expressing yourself in an authentic way through the clothes you wear enables you to stride out oozing confidence, get noticed and communicate your personal brand.

Prepare yourself for a successful return by showing up with confidence in a style that is fit for purpose and communicates who you are.
