Hi, I’m Bridie, LOOK’s Junior Fashion News Assistant – welcome to my virtual workwear wardrobe! Yep, a handful of my colleagues have already shared snippets of their office style with you, and now it’s my turn. So what do you need to know?
I’m a sucker for trends, but am always on the hunt for bold hero pieces.
Tip: Topshop’s ‘Last chance to buy’ rail is well worth the rummage. Near 90% of my outfit compliments come from that very rail.
Tip 2: Sales are friends, not foes. I know, the thought of spending a day barging your way around Oxford Street seems like the world’s worst way to spend a weekend, but you won’t regret it when you bag the last in your size of that frock.
As for style icons, I’d say Kendall is my biggest inspiration – her stylist Monica Rose’s Instagram feed is my number 1 go-to when I can’t decide what to wear.
So without further ado, here’s how all that translates into my workwear wardrobe…
If there’s one thing I couldn’t live without, it’s my faux leather trews. Here, I paired them with ‘60s style white ankle boots, a matching double-breasted blazer and a simple skinny black scarf. To break up the monochrome, I completed the look with my suede teal bag from Zara.
Called it! I snapped up this Lavish Alice co-ord just a few days before Kendall was seen wearing the brand, and my love for the label has grown ever since. As you can see, the two-piece is super caj so I dressed it up with gold toe-capped Adidas trainers and a leather croc print bag.
It’s not often I neglect my trusty Adidas’, but these silver ankle boots were a no-brainer. Italian designer Camilla Elphick started the trend with her ‘Silver Lining’ boots, but these beauties are just as amazing and cost a fraction of the price.
