As Marie Claire UK’s Junior Shopping Editor, I’ve become pretty accustomed to knowing which shops to turn to when I’m after specific products or want to nail a particular trend. When I’m after elevated basics, I turn straight to ARKET, and for affordable trend pieces, it’s H&M all the way, and to find the most on-trend designer buys, Net-a-Porter is my first port of call. But when it comes to spring workwear, there are a few retailers on the high street that really nail it. Specifically: COS, Aligne and Jigsaw.

While the workwear aesthetic is trending hard ATM, tailored pieces are, by nature, timeless. So spring tailoring basically presents the best of both worlds in terms of fashion-forward dressing and making your wardrobe stretch further.

When it comes to tailoring, it’s worth investing a little more in your purchases - because material, quality and composition really show through here. But at the same time, that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune. I’ve selected a range of the best spring tailoring looks on the market right now - from waistcoats to classic trousers and even structured accessories to complement your tailored look.

Whether you want to freshen up your tailored looks for spring with some on-trend colours and lighter materials (hello structured linen co-ords) or simply want to dabble in the workwear trend, I’ve got you covered. Trust me, these chic tailored pieces are worth the investment.

The best spring workwear to shop now:

COS Spring Workwear

For timeless silhouettes with a modern twist, look no further than COS. It’s my go-to brand for elevated, trend-led selections that often look far more expensive than they actually are.

Aligne Spring Workwear

Aligne specialise in slouchy, oversized styles that still somehow feel refined and elevated. The fashion set can't get enough of this brand. I have my eye on their linen pieces and muted colours, which all pair beautifully with denim for a effortlessly laid-back look.

Jigsaw Spring Workwear

Featuring classic tailored shapes with a range of neutrals and soft pops of colour, Jigsaw isn’t to be underestimated when it comes to chic workwear.
