Want to know what to buy from this week’s in-store drop? Take a little inspiration from us – every week we’ll scour the virtual rails of our favourite online haunts to bring you 10 hotter-than-hot items that style-savvy shoppers are just dying to get their hands on as they land.
In this week: new-season trousers, staple separates and hot heeled loafers to take you to the office in style.
1. Jaeger Zebra jacket, £225, my-wardrobe.com
A statement jacket is a must-have addition to your workwear wardrobe, and this graphic monochrome striped version from Jaeger is top of our working wish-list. We love its structure shoulders and piping detail – and the zip fastening puts a tough twist on traditional tailoring.
2. Suede Pleat Shorts, £65, Topshop
Work the transitional weather with a pair of suede shorts – with their soft tailoring and pleat details not only will this pair from Topshop work well for the office, they’ll also become your go-to for easy day dressing.
3. KG by Kurt Geiger Menezes shoe boot, £120, Kurt Geiger
A classic black boot will be your best friend at work, and we love KG by Kurt Geiger’s sleek Menezes which ooze understated elegance. Team with tailored trousers or your favourite pencil skirt for a contemporary-classic look.
4. Wool Wide-leg Trousers, £199, Jaeger
Make like a Celine girl and channel this season’s 70s-inspired silhouette with a pair of wide-leg trousers. Jaeger’s camel-coloured wool pair with flattering pleats and a bow-tie waist are the perfect statement piece this season (and more to come) – simply add a silk vest and tan heels and you’re hot to trot.
5. Lee Angel Layered Square Ring, £26, theOutnet.com
Workwear doesn’t have to be plain and boring – add a bit of spice with a piece of statement jewellery. We love the mix of colours and textures in Lee Angel’s layered square ring, and it’s an absolute bargain to boot.
6. Praline High Loafer Shoes, £80, Topshop
Heeled loafers are autumn’s go-to sensible shoe, but for a pair a bit more office-appropriate than Balenciaga’s multi-coloured pair, head to Topshop for its praline-coloured platform versions – they’ll go with all your staple separates and will act as an instant update to your existing work wear wardrobe.
7. Dancin’ Around Dress, £100, French Connection
For an easy throw-on piece, look no further than French Connection’s Dancin’ Around dress. It’s simple and stylish, and will become a great base for layering when the weather drops.
8. By Zoe Oward tapered trousers, £102, my-wardrobe.com
Tapered trousers are fashion’s favourite way to wear relaxed city tailoring, and we love this laid-back pair from By Zoe. Embrace their French styling and team with a Breton top and heels for an effortlessly cool look at the office.
9. Mango Silk Pocket Shirt, £39.90, ASOS
Shirts have always been a work wear staple, but thanks to the new season’s minimalism they’ve been given a whole new significance. Simple pieces in luxe silks are the hottest way to wear them – we’re especially taken with Mango’s silk pocket shirt for pared-down elegance.
10. Anya Hindmarch Fergus Woven Bag, £495, Selfridges
A great bag is the finishing touch in any wardrobe, so invest in a cool-classic that’ll last for season’s to come. We love Anya Hidmarch’s Fergus bag that’ll add a bit of office sophistication to your most basic of outfits and will break up all that black you’ve bought.
