The Workwear Edit


When it comes to fashionable workwear, it’s nice to have a little change now and then from the classic white shirt and fitted trousers combination. With spring on it’s way, now is a great time to re-evaluate your wardrobe and invest in some fresh office looks.

We have devised five looks suitable for work that will bring a fun change to your typical day-to-day outfits.

The Workwear Edit:

Whether you are looking for a slight change to your typical outfits, or a whole new workwear look, let us give you some inspiration…

Classic with a twist

Take the classic white shirt look and give it a twist with some pleated cuffs. Finish off the outfit with some pinstripe trousers and pointed black loafers because points are a great way to add formality to your footwear.

Zara: Top with pleated cuffs, £19.99
Topshop: Pinstripe peg trousers, £35.00
New Look: Black premium leather tassel loafers, £49.99

Suit it up

Sometimes a specific work situation will require a suit. Although we are fans of tweed blazers, we would always opt for black. Swap your shirt underneath for a funnel neck top and don’t forget to match up your accessories.

ASOS: Oasis Tailored Ponte Blazer, £40.00
Topshop: Ribbed Funnel Neck Top, £16.00
ASOS: Oasis Slim Leg Tailored Trousers, £27.00

Dress to impress

We admit that finding a suitable work dress can be a little difficult, but we’ve done the hard work for you. Sometimes it’s nice to feel a little feminine during your day at the office, particularly as we are getting closer to spring.

Next: Neutral Stripe Dress, £26.00
Dorothy Perkins: Black and White Shift Dress, £22.50
Topshop: Midi Wrap Dress, £42.00

That 70’s look

Just because it’s workwear, you don’t have to shy away from on-trend clothing. Why not opt for some 70’s styling with a colourful shirt and a boxy stylish jacket. Finish off the look with a bulky bag.

Topshop: 70’s Floral Print Shirt, £42.00
Topshop: Mensy Peg Trousers, £42.00
River Island: Black Metal Side Handbag, £42.00

Block colours

Sometimes just making a simple change to your work outfits can really make a difference. Try to steer clear of typical ‘work colours’ and bring in something a little brighter. We suggest starting off with a yellow midi skirt and finish the look with a pair chunky ankle boots.

ASOS: V-Neck Blouse, £25.00
Topshop: Zip Detail Midi Skirt, £32.00
ASOS: Hudson London Claudette Suede Heeled Ankle Boots, £100
