BRAND BUZZ

INTRODUCING YOUR NEW 9-5 STAPLES

By Lucy Glen, 26 September 2017

Spanish label Stradivarius, named after the signature treble clef, has debuted on ASOS this month and is really hitting the right note. Arriving just in time to refresh your workwear staples, the brand has taken 9-5 essentials – like the blazer and white shirt – and future-proofed them with influences from 2017’s emerging trends.

THE blazer

Seen on the streets of street style heavily this month, the grey blazer is your new BFF. Far from cloudy and dull, this grey layer is one that will work seven days a week. Pair with smart black pants and cami from Mon through Fri, and with tailored joggers or denim cut-offs for weekend plans.

You really cannot have enough white shirts, right? This trapeze-back version is a sweet twist on the standard issue button-down and is easily worn with tailored shorts or wide-leg pants.

Big enough to transport your lunch and laptop for work, but chic enough to bust out on the weekend for those sleepover essentials.

Investing in a shoe that can keep up in the smart stakes for office duty plus be on-trend for Saturday drinks at the local is a tricky decision. Luckily, we've just made it for you. You're welcome.

Don't panic, we know this looks a little risqué for your usual Wednesday outfit. But, try wearing this velvet crop over a white shirt or tee with black pants for work, then remove said shirt or tee for date night. Happy hump day.
