Most of the UK heads back to work on Monday, and what better way to have you feeling great on your first day back in the office, than a brand new working wardrobe. Many work environments call for strict dress codes which can be a real bore, but can also mean the perfect opportunity to channel a fierce look that means business.
When it comes to law firms, banks and other male dominated environments, dress codes call for black, navy and other muted neutrals. From classic designers such as Max Mara and Fenn Wright Mason who specialise in luxe staples to High Street favourites such as Zara and Topshop who over the last few seasons have upped their game when it comes to stylish separates - investing a few key pieces to work around your existing wardrobe is worth every penny. Specialist labels such as The Fold and Logue London who create conservative pieces for working women with a touch of feminine detail and colour here and there are also on the rise too.
Teaming a loose fit pinstripe shirt from Equipment over a great tailored trouser and accessorised with a pointed toe heel is just one of many ways to play on strict the dress codes that are implemented. Geometric prints and hints of coloured accessories are also both easy ways to add a touch of personality when doing battle in the boardroom or why not try an oversize coat from Roksanda Illincic or wrap coat from Max Mara to have your commute to work feeling less like ground-hog day. We have selected our top 50 workwear buys to help you get inspired this weekend.
