With such workwear-inspired A/W collections fresh off the catwalk, i couldn’t leave them all to waste and not talk about them, as now is the time to refresh your work wardrobe for the coming months. I’m really pleased that this season’s workwear is catering for different shapes and personalities – ranging from leather skirts to wide leg trousers. Both equally wearable, both superbly different.
Many designers seem to have used versatile workwear as their focal point for their A/W collections. Take, for example, Chloé. I know I have been banging on about Chloé all summer, but the designs really are something.
Simple, elegant and powerful.
Céline has also gone a little way down the workwear route, but in a much more understated way. See what you think…
I hope this post will inspire the career ladies of the world to opt out of the typical black skirt, jacket and heels option for winter and go for something powerful and classy. For high-street alternatives to the beautiful (but scarily expensive) designer versions shown here, then Next has some lovely pieces including tailored trousers, bags, blazers and knits to suit all figures and personalities. A pair of leather gloves are a must for this season, as are loafers and skinny belts, and camel, grey and navy are in vogue. Remember, practicality is the key.
