If your work dress code calls for smart attire, you’ll be thrilled to hear sharp tailoring takes centre stage this season. But now it’s considered a fashion statement, you can experiment with new silhouettes – including a ultra-modern wide-leg crop – and contemporary styling. Cinch in the jacket with a slimline belt to balance out proportions.
Think a work purse must be a sober affair? Think again. Bright colours make a welcome addition to any office environment and will prompt a flurry of compliments in the lifts. Plus, with a multitude of pockets and the option to go hands-free, many of the purses in our extensive range lend themselves to a busy day, meaning you won’t have to compromise on practicality in the pursuit of great style.
A trench coat for spring? Not quite revolutionary but reworked in on-trend checks and shower-proof Stormwear fabrics, a wise investment for the months ahead. Make the heritage look feel fresh by layering over a classic denim jacket. Not only will you look cool on the commute, you’ll also be ready to take your outfit directly to the school gate once it’s time to clock out. Add a chic pair of heels and you could even head out for dinner – that’s the beauty of our ultra-versatile Mia pants.
Minimalists rejoice – the humble T-shirt is the latest casual piece to have received a style promotion. Practical and fuss-free (what doesn’t go with a crisp white tee?), a couple of sustainably sourced pure-cotton styles are a smart investment to live in this season. Take the great-value style pictured: with its modern fit and potential for easy layering, we reckon it will be your most-worn item this season. Dress down with sneakers for day, and up with boots for important meetings.
