How To Update Your Work Wear


Finding great office-appropriate looks is never an easy task, that's why I love Karen Millen's contemporary approach to work wear. Every season they offer those classic, easy to wear pieces with updated cuts and fabrication, like this jacquard textured biker jacket.

If you're looking to add a few new pieces to your work wardrobe this season, here are a few of my tips...

Mix it up
I love co-ord sets, it means you always have an easy look to pull out when you're lacking inspiration. Make sure you mix it up every now and then though, pair a different jacket with a trouser or skirt in a contrasting colour or texture.

It's all in the details
Keep your eye out for those small details that really help bring an outfit together and add a fashion forward touch to a corporate look. Little touches like the buckle detail on these culottes or the textured contrast panels on this shirt keep things interesting.

Experiment with new styles
Don't be afraid to try something different! Loose tailoring is definitely a big trend this season, these culottes offer a subtle take on the look while still cinching you in at the waist. Try out different styles and see what works for you and your body shape.

Invest in the classics
If you have your foundation pieces sorted, you'll never be stuck for something to wear. Invest in classic pieces such a black pencil skirt and tapered trousers, white blouses and business shirts and a great blazer to get your basics perfected.
