In the lead up to Christmas, you may or may not be shopping for others, adding the odd thing into the (real or online) basket for yourself. Surely its not just me?! If you are looking for another something to add to your pile under the Christmas tree, here are my current Top 10 workwear sale picks:
Jenna Lyons of J Crew said that leopard print is a neutral, and she’s right. What doesn’t leopard print go with? Would I recommend leopard print for work? If its classic court shoes in a leopard print, then, yes, I would. Voilà! And its currently just under £50:
If you are looking for a roomy, structured leather tote, this Nine West one might be just what you want, especially now that its half price. I love the red interior, too.
Adding some Toscana sheepskin to an outfit adds instant luxury. Accessories are invaluable for this, especially attention grabbing ones like this, so no one notices that its the same old coat, dress or top that you are wearing it with. Plain clothes, interesting accessories: I usually dress like this. This snood also comes in black and mink.
I am a Me+Em fan, but find their range a little expensive, until it goes into the sale. Which is now. So, I have included another couple of pieces from their sale range. This Rick Owens-esque top comes in various other colours, including black. I think it would look wonderful with either cigarette trousers, or a straight midi skirt.
The H&M Premium Quality range is where I look first, on the H&M site, as this is where the, well, quality pieces are. Its good value when its full priced. However, when it goes on sale, its some of the best value workwear you can buy. These shoes also come in burgundy.
Only available in small sizes, but this looks quite roomy. If you were pregnant, it might also work well for the first half of your pregnancy. Its worth keeping an eye on the Ines De La Fressange pieces at Uniqlo, as the quality is excellent eg the shirts are thicker than the other shirts.
This silk blouse comes in a range of colours, although stock is disappearing quickly, online.
I admit that this is more work party than workwear, but surely that’s fine, too? If I didn’t have an embellished clutch, or two, I would buy this one. This bag has a shoulder strap – handy detail, Dune.
Thank you for reading, Reader, have a tremendous day.
