A WEEK IN WORKWEAR

Five days of fab 9-5 looks

By Maybelle Morgan, 10 July 2016

Summer work wardrobe 'mares are now officially a thing of the past, as this week, Alice Tate, PR and communications manager at über-cool hotel chain The Hoxton, is showing you how balmy 9-5 style is really done. Repping sleek casualwear meets sharp tailoring, Alice is all about the dreamy office looks. Follow the leader…

Monday

Stripes are big for SS16, so show Monday you mean business by mashing up a cute-casj shirt with a smart tailored mini. Tick yet another new-season box (gold star for you) by finishing your outfit with a nod to the future in pointed metallic block heels.

Tuesday

What’s commute-appropes and stripy all over? Paper-bag-waist shorts that are perfect for amping up the cute factor, that's what. Pair with a graphic white tee and layer a boxy pink suede jacket on top for a more chill twist on tailoring. Add black strappy sandals and a leather bag to up the profesh vibe.

Wednesday

Give humpday the hair-toss and swap out tailored trousers for some formal leather joggers (dare to go pink, if your work vibe is a little more laid-back). Add a gingham top and drape over a sleeveless blazer to smarten up the ensemble. Finish with clog heels and a white cross-body to smash that hot-weather style win.

Thursday

Double denim on throwback Thursday? So necessary. Make it less Justin and Britney and more office chic by pairing a denim or chambray shirt with a twist (think romantic ruffle collar) with lighter-wash mom jeans. Add black suede mules for a SS16 slam-dunk and you’re ready to boss that afternoon meeting.

Friday

You’ve made it to the weekend (trooper!), so freshen up your casj Fridays by pairing a summer whites drop-waist dress with western buckle boots. Make like a street-style queen and throw on a khaki bomber jacket and studded leather satchel. Finish with a slick of berry lippie and you’re ready for your post-work bevs – plus, wherever the night takes you…
