WORKWEAR YOU'LL WANT TO WEAR
Back to work blues? A shiny new 9-5 wardrobe should help. Meet the 6 workwear wonders to up your office outfit game…
1. PRINTED POWER DRESS
Break out of your black rut and boost your mood (and in turn your work motivation) with a standout print. Timeless shapes like the shirt and wrap keep our dresses office-friendly, but allow you to inject some personality into your work wardrobe. Let the dress do the talking and accessorise with muted shoes and bags – black is a no-brainer – then finish the look with a chic overcoat. You’ll be skipping into the office on a Monday morning in no time. Maybe.
2. OFFICE-READY JUMPSUIT
On those morning’s when the car won’t start/the kids are playing up/you just can’t get out of bed (delete as applicable) a jumpsuit will be your saviour. No longer just for after dark, our wide-legged wrap-front style is seriously smart. Add heels to create the illusion of legs that go on forever, and slip a fine knit polo underneath when you need extra warmth. It’s the ultimate easy outfit-in-one.
3. UPDATED LBD
For a look that’s effortless but still means business, look no further than the classic LBD. Subtle front slashes and on-trend ring details put a new season spin on the iconic style, and mean they’ll work for those days when you need to go straight out to dinner or drinks. For a fashion-forward look, pair with ankle boots or keep things timeless with chic courts.
4. CHIC CO-ORD
Like the jumpsuit, a co-ord is your go-to on mornings when you just haven’t got time to plan a perfectly put-together outfit – hey, any excuse to hit that snooze button just one more time is good with us. Our rich plum top and trousers look as good separately as they do together – hello, endless styling options – and will work way beyond the 9-5.
5. STATEMENT SHIRTS
As far as we’re concerned, no work wardrobe is complete without a ‘power blouse’. We’re talking about the kind of silky shirts that are simultaneously smart and sexy – think The Fall’s Stella Gibson – and create the perfect office ensemble when paired with a sleek pencil skirt or chic trousers. Choose from bold blue leopard or graphic monochrome prints, and tuck into our luxe leather zip pencil skirt.
6. SMART-MEETS-SEXY SKIRT
Our best-selling skirt is back for the new season in go-with-everything black. Made from thick ponte – a wonder blend of rayon, polyester and elastane – the tightly woven fabric holds its shape, travels well, won’t fade and is super comfortable. Basically, everything you want from a workwear buy. Leather-look panels give the flattering A-line shape a fashion-edge – wear it with everything from our cold-shoulder knit to boxy plum top.
