How to look trendy and office appropriate in a jacket

Look 1:

This is an on-trend military parka. It’s flattering and can be dressed up in a sophisticated look. We love the print on this shift dress which will work worn with an opaque stocking, or layered over a black, tailored trouser.

Look 2:

A solid, boxy jacket is that key item that never dates. It’s versatile enough to pair with trousers or a structured dress for work, and it has enough mileage to see you through seasons to come. *I love the chain detail on this one for added interest. It’s a key item for power dressing, don’t forget to carry a ladylike bag.

Look 3:

A jacquard blazer is that opulent statement piece that every woman should own. Wear it over a tunic for a romantic take, or a tailored trouser. Why not add a pop of colour with a bright heel too?
