A WEEK IN WORKWEAR

Back to work like a boss

By Maybelle Morgan, 4 September 2016

Your 9-5 thing might feel like a drag at the moment (RIP hols) but your style doesn’t have to suffer. Meet your new-season workwear pinup and lover of statement jackets: Guerlain’s junior financial controller Claire Most.

Monday

Mondays can be savage, so show them you mean business with a splash of bright tailoring. Go 70s chic and pair a ribbed polo shirt with super wide-leg trousers before finishing with chunky brogues – all in head-to-toe neutral tones. Amp up the fun by finishing with a bubblegum-pink blazer.

Make a case for 60s-style officewear and team a ruffled cream roll neck with a patent skirt. Layer over a AW16-loving brocade floral bomber jacket, styled with leather-buckle ankle boots and a satchel for that profesh vibe with major back-to-school appeal.

Try a subtle style statement and swap out your black tailored trousers for a pastel pink pair. Add a 70s-style striped tee and play with proportions via a longline navy coat. Next, show humpday you’re totally over it with some fresh white sneaks or, for a smarter finish, swap in brogues.

Just because it’s nearly the weekend (yep, Thursday onwards), it doesn’t call for style slacking. Amp up the #girlboss vibes with stripes on stripes. Layer a pinstripe longline blazer over a cutesy shift dress and finish with all the minimal accessories (think pointed-heel boots and a metal-handle shopper).

Friday

Nothing says Fri-yay like proudly repping one of AW16’s biggest trends: velvet, baby. Match this quilted midi skirt with a brown bomber, layering a preppy pink polo shirt underneath. Add white treads for a casual vibe or finish with sassy mules to stomp straight into your post-work drinks.
