Workwear wardrobe proving a challenge? We're here to help.
When it comes to finding the best women’s workwear, we’re not just talking about staple tailored trousers and collared shirts, we mean working this season’s key trends into your office outfits. From gingham dresses and ruffle skirts to ruffle shirts and smart bags.
We’ve rounded up the very best summer workwear buys to overhaul your current wares. And not only that, these investment buys are some of the hardest working you’ll find. Not only can they be worn right now but they’ll also work for the transition into spring so you can rework these fresh pieces into your wardrobe ready for the new year.
While keeping up your style credentials on a daily basis isn’t always easy, making subtle adjustments from your weekend wardrobe could do wonders for your working week collections too. For example, maybe this season is the time to make the transition into the best flat shoes and ditch your killer office heels.
Best work dresses
Of course, the most hard-working item of your work wardrobe is without a doubt the work dress. Whether your office dress code is strict or smart casual, do check our round-up of the best smart work dresses so you always look chic, from statement wraparounds to sleep A-line numbers.
Best work separates
Think crisp shirts and liven up black pieces with embroidered details and pops of new season colours to liven up traditional monochrome palettes.
When it comes to tailoring, our edit proves you don’t have to splash the cash. High street options from Zara, & Other Stories and Reiss are just as good as any designer offering.
However, there is of course a selection of blow-the-budget styles for those of you wanting to seriously invest. From Alexander McQueen’s structured tops to Eudon Choi’s statement knits, be sure to check out the higher price points too.
Don’t be afraid to accessorise for work – a pair of modest earrings or a statement necklace can really help bring an outfit together. If you’re a bit more pragmatic, a watch will help keep you on time and is an easy office wear staple – check out our edit of the Black Friday watches deals if you’re looking for a timepiece of your own.
So, to summarise, we’ve gathered up the very best women’s workwear for the new season, from the high street and designer destinations to help you keep your workwear wardrobe up-to-date this season. Getting dressed in the morning is about to become so much easier.
