Back to school blues hits us all, even if you’re no longer attending it.
After the fun of November and December, the thought of heading back to 9-5 anything can seem grim. One way to make this transition from party season to 2017 easier is by investing in a brand new wardrobe!
Remember when going back to school meant you were treated to a new (probably fluffy) pencil case and a backpack? Bring those old-school treats bang-up-to-date by updated your ’16 look with a few select staples.
A white shirt is a ‘works-with-anything’ kind of piece, but rather than opting for a standard shape, choose one with a tailored twist.
If your office attire needs to be smart, try adding a flared midi skirt to your look. Paired with heels, a ladylike skirt will instantly smarten the plainest tee.
Been holding on to your boring navy suit forever? Give your look a much-needed update with a gorge on trend pink co-ord. As well as working perfectly together, a matchy two-piece can be separated, thus making it one of the hardest working outfits in your closet.
Is your boss nice enough to give you dress-down Fridays? Sweet! Celebrate with a pair of leather skinnies. Worn with a luxe shirt and gold-studded trainers, these trews will be a welcome addition to your weekday wardrobe. They’re also the ideal day-to-night option if you have evening plans with the girls. Just switch your trainers for heels and add a slick of lippy to finish.
Work-style dresses have come a long way since the merry old age of shifts. Nowadays, frocks worn loose and to the calf are just as smart and way more flattering. We’re especially keen on pretty printed wrap dresses like this one. Add some tights and pair with heels or boots to make the perfect ensemble.
One of the easiest ways to change up daywear is by picking up a few printed blouses, particularly the silky kind. Think Gillian Anderson in The Fall.
Lastly, a new bag will make you feel better about returning to work while keeping you organised and accessorised. This year’s batch of grown-up backpacks are big enough to house all of the essentials whilst looking incredibly stylish.
From head to toe, it’s officially a new year, a new you and a new wardrobe!
