Say hello to your new Autumn workwear wardrobe...
Bored of wearing the same old every day? Feel like you've got nothing to wear to work? Well it's time to amp up your every day work wear to new fashion heights with our top picks for this season that will keep you on the top of your style game.
The secret to creating an amazingly stylish work wardrobe is investing in good staple pieces. Grey, white, black and blue are key colours that you can mix and match with everything, on any day. But that doesn't mean you should always choose plain items. Opt for interesting shapes, small motifs or flattering cuts - and pops of colour are of course a must.
Tailoring is also key for work wear. Discard stiff, uncomfortable, ill-fitted tailoring though in favour of luxe pieces that really flatter your figure.
So, take a look at our ultimate autumn workwear edit. inspired by this season's trends, we've selected the most exciting fashion fixes for a sleek and sophisticated wardrobe update...
Stripes are a classic print, so an stmmetric hem gives an instant update and will make your entire outfit look on-trend for this season. Wear with a grey roll neck and black pumps to complete the chic ensemble.
A camel trench is that easy go to coat that you can rewear for years to come. Pinch in that waist to define your curves and give it a new spin by adding a bold brooch.
A chic blazer is an easy go to for pulling an entire outfit together. This navy one from LK Bennett has a slight classic Chanel feel about it, so you know it will always be in style. Throw this over a simple black or grey dress to give it a smarter spin.
Take note, because for AW17, Prince of Wales print is going to be big. So tap into the trend early with this tunic dress from Mango. In a flattering shape that skims over your curves, this dress would look amazing with a pair of black knee high boots.
The chic detail in the touch of jewelling on the collar of this shirt gives it a stylish edge. Team with a navy pleated skirt and some shiny shoes for that smart 'back to work' feeling.
Give your look that ultimate pop of colour with this vibrant orange skirt from Cos. Add a classic white blouse and gold court heels.
A black dress is a wardrobe staple that all women have. Why let yours blend in? This in and out shape one from Hobbs comes with a touch of colour that elevates it to the next level. Plus the loose skirt is super forgiving on a curvier bottom while the coloruful band will draw the eyes to a slim waist.
Ditch the plain black heels, and choose these burgundy pair as your daily go to. Style with slim trousers and an over-sized shirt.
Compliment a bigger bust with this v-neck blouse from Marks and spencer. The bright colour will lift your daily look. Try and pick up on the hue with your accessories, a printed bag or shoes are a must.
These totally flattering high waist trousers are about to become your weekly autumn workwear go-to. The darker colour are completely slimming on your legs. Opt for a french vibe with a breton top, tucked in (of course) to show off your waist with that belt.
