When you work in an office and have separate work and home wardrobes, it can be difficult to break the habit of wearing the same clothes to the office week in, week out. You want to keep it fresh and interesting but you don’t want it to cost you a fortune to regularly update your office clothing. So you need to invest in some timeless pieces which will see you through from one trend to the next.
The first item you’ll need is a classic white blouse.
This capped sleeve white blouse from Simon Jersey is perfect as it’s fitted and gathers around the chest, so it’s flattering for someone of any size and any shape. The capped sleeves add extra detail and shape. This comes in sizes from 8-30 and costs £17.09.
Team that up with a pencil skirt and you’ll be an Audrey Hepburn in the making.
Suave, sophisticated and flattering (a pencil skirt adds an amazing hourglass shape to any figure), a pencil skirt is a staple item in any office worker’s wardrobe. Dorothy Perkins has an amazing collection of pencil skirts from the classic black to the more daring big print patterns. The skirts start from £14.
And what better than the classic court shoe to compliment your outfit?
Whether low heel, high heel, rounded or pointed, the court shoe has been rocking offices for years and is set to stay. These timeless black Mary-Jane court shoes from New Look cost just £17.99.
A scarf is a great way to finish off an office wear outfit, adding a dash of personality and colour.
This gorgeous hot pink scarf from Simon Jersey costs £9.89.
These items can all be teamed up with other classics in your wardrobe to create new outfits, time and time again.
