Getting that desk-to-bar look down perfectly can feel like a struggle, but this new season collection from Tu has options that look stylish and smart in the office. Red Bloom is inspired by the autumn/winter pre fall catwalks collection from Lanvin, Fendi, Christopher Kane and more – and the result is a fabulous combination of flattering, unique styles in stunning fabrics and patterns.
Start with a red colour palette, and then mix in pops of emerald and magenta (and the occasional flattering black). This is the perfect colour palette for autumn/winter, and so far away from usual dull winter tones. When it comes to prints – anything goes! From flattering dogtooth to daring animal print and romantic florals, there’s a fierce fabric for everyone.
Worried you can’t carry off such a bold look? Opt for paneled and illusion bodycon dresses that will slim and sculpt in all the right places. Paired with a stand out cover-up and shoes that you feel fabulous in, you’ll look and feel as though you’ve stepped straight off the catwalk. It’s smart wear like you’ve never tried before – but so much better!

Switch your traditional white blouse for something a little more stand-out this season. This grid check blouse is a real statement piece - perfect for those mornings when you're struggling to put an outfit together. Simply pair with black cigarette trousers, then add a pair of heels in a matching hue for evenings.
No matter what your shape, the perfect hourglass figure can be achieved easily with some illusion printing and a waist belt. This dark-hued dress will be a real saviour in winter. Layer over a blouse in the day, then add a biker jacket in the evening.
A red dress shows you're ready to stand out from the crowd. Try on Tu's bodycon cut and you'll feel more confident than ever. Just add a skinny belt, sheer black tights and you're good to go.
Forget your LBD - it's all about the LRD right now: the Little Red Dress. This textured dress is flattering on all figures thanks to its feminine shape, and the stand-out colour is sure to turn heads, wherever you go.
A simple black top made different is how we would describe this buy. The cut and sew detailing adds a unique edge to an otherwise simple work top. Pair with everything from skirts to trousers and culottes.
The classic vintage-style dogtooth print has been given a modern makeover in the form of this monochrome dress. Panel detailing and a fit and flare design make for a flattering buy that is completely timeless.
The beautiful and unusual rose print on this blouse instantly makes it a stand-out buy. Be brave and make a statement by pairing this with a flattering pencil skirt at work for smart wear with a feminine twist.
A draped jersey dress is a flattering option, and it looks even more fabulous in stand-out animal print. Add some opaques and heels for a simple but seriously effective look.
Dogtooth is a perfect smart wear print, but an asymmetric hem adds a whole new edge to an otherwise simple skirt. Layer up with a polo neck and wrap coat to complete the look.
A cardi-coat will be your go to cover-up for winter. Look for an on-trend tasseled trim and make it modern with a punchy hounds tooth print. The Red Bloom Collection is available from the 17th November online and at selected Sainsbury's stores.
