Rework your office wardrobe


Strut out of your style rut with these workwear looks, in partnership with Smint

Whether you have five minutes or a full hour to get ready, it can often feel like there’s nothing exciting to wear to work. Once you’ve exhausted the few smart shirts, black jeans and pleated skirts you own you can be left feeling particularly uninspired. This is a travesty! What we choose to wear can totally lift our mood, making us feel confident, self-assured and motivated. Don’t let your workwear ambition freeze over this winter – follow our tips to inject some new life into your office wardrobe.

The right kind of cigarettes

These gorgeous burgundy cigarette trousers are a simple way of adding a dash of seasonal colour to your winter work wardrobe. Paired with a tailored white or black shirt, you can confidently head from desk to dinner.

The hardworking coat

Length and fit are everything when it comes to a new winter coat. Full length can be tough to pull off with flats during the day depending on your height, while a belted waist is troublesome over layers. This three quarter-length fitted number from J.Crew is the answer. Black works with everything, the high neck is a lovely seasonal style feature and the length compliments both heels and flats.

The perfect shirt

Clever winter dressing is all about layering and this shirt, which will see you stylishly throughout winter and into spring, fits beautifully under blazers, ponchos, pinafores and dungarees.

Multi-tasking trousers

A pair of trousers that can safely and stylishly take you from meetings to mojitos is one of the smartest investments you’ll ever make. These Richmond Trousers from Boden are your spontaneous night out saviours.

Elevate your office style with these striking blue snake print leather boots. The sculptural cylindrical heel doesn’t only give them a luxe edge, but makes them comfy enough to stride to the office in.

The finishing touch

A simple way to update any outfit is with a beautiful statement necklace, and there’s no need to spend a fortune with amazing high street gems to discover. The multiple shimmering glass crystals and cubic zirconia clusters make this a seasonal must-have.
