In the mornings, no one likes to spend time thinking about what they need to wear to the workplace. Instead of trying on endless outfits, wouldn’t you rather spend your time catching up on the news, sipping a morning latte or scrolling through the latest updates on your Instagram feed? We thought so. Totally Workwear supports local businesses in Cairns with the latest trends and styles and give community access to a dedicated showroom filled with every style and brand you can imagine. To cut back on the time deciding on what to wear (and increasing your latte time), we’ve narrowed in on some key office essentials to develop an easy work capsule wardrobe.
“We pride ourselves on being fully stocked and boasting personal one-on-one service so people can try on and feel the garments before purchasing,” says Totally Workwear Cairns In-house Corporate Stylist Darnelle Perucich. “Gone are the days where you will see one set uniform within an organisation. Fashion in the workplace is embracing people’s individual style while also maintaining the brand presence of the company with the appropriate corporate colours.
The team at Totally Workwear say that corporate workwear and business casuals for 2020 is all about versatility. “In 2020 you will see a lot of classic cuts and understated colours such as aqua, beige, blush pink and navy blue. Wardrobe staples such as white, black and navy paired with a pop of colour for emphasis,” Darnelle says.
“The 5 Day Working Wardrobe is now a big hit across Australia and we have seen a huge uptake here in FNQ also. What it means is employees get to have a selection of styles within a fashion range to suit their body shape and personality that still fits the business theme and corporate image.”
Totally Workwear has supported Cairns business for over 24 years taking the hard work out of selecting a uniform and giving all body shapes options to look and feel great as well as being part of a team. The Kingsbury family have owned and operated Totally Workwear Cairns since its inception and they are the only Australian owned and locally operated workwear store in the region.
“By buying local and supporting a local business such as ours, you know that your money will benefit our region. Totally Workwear supports all job seeking agencies in Cairns to assist and support job hunters get job ready and feel confident for that job interview,” says Managing Director, Chris Kingsbury.
“We are proud of our local heritage and we are big believers in giving back to the community that supports us. TWW has supported many charities in its time including The Salvation Army, FNQ Hospital Foundation, Cancer Council and COUCH just to name a few of them. We get so much out of supporting these organisations personally as a team, it is very rewarding seeing the positive difference you can make in the lives of others,” says Chris.
Totally Workwear Cairns is also very generous when it comes to supporting local sporting teams including the Northern Pride, Tour of the Tropics, many motorcycle charity rides and Sail Cairns. But a unique point of difference for this local business is that they’ve taken sporting sponsorship to a whole new level with the launch of their very own community sporting team – Team TWW. Team TWW showcases local sporting greats in various codes throughout the
“It started off as just a team entering the Tour of the Tropics of which we are a GOLD sponsor and it just grew from there. We now have TARGA rally car drivers, BMX riders, Mountain Bike Riders, Runners, Swimmers, Tour of the Tropics and Cairns Ironman competitors, and even a ballroom dancing squad.
“We support them in their sporting endeavours with their gear, entry fees and equipment but we also do all their marketing and public relations for them. They have their own dedicated Instagram following too. It’s really grown to be something quite special, #TeamTWW is filled with some amazingly talented sports people who are going from strength to strength not only in Far North Queensland, but they are winning so much now, some of them are competing all over Australia. They’ve become part of the Totally Workwear family and it’s really given us our own sporting team to barrack for regardless of what we favour as a sporting code,” says Chris.
