The thought of going back to work after the Christmas holiday can be almost unbearable. But – what if you had a new work wardrobe to wear, one that would let you start off 2017 in style? Fortunately, Warehouse is ready to help you face the new year with some fantastic new staples to get you through the working day.
The British brand is known for bringing a high-fashion vibe at high-street prices. Design director Emma Cook knows that women in the UK want to look amazing but most of us don’t want to spend thousands of pounds on one designer item. For Winter 2017, Cook and her team of British designers are offering a range of modern wardrobe essentials for today’s style-conscious woman.
Let’s start with the must-have skirt silhouette this year: the below-the-knee fit-and-flare. Warehouse gives us two options, one in a muted orange and one in black, each in a soft knit that drapes flatteringly, no matter what figure type you are. Pair with a roll-neck jumper and boots for business-casual cool, or change into a metallic top and heels for after-work drinks. The jacquard skirt in a camo/animal print can also do double duty: the retro tailoring and muted colours can be downplayed by day, but the metallic glimmer and flirty hem length make it perfect for a night out too.
The rich hue and ruffled sleeve on this mid-length dress deliver on-trend bohemian chic – and, if you’ve maybe overindulged a bit at Christmas, the relaxed silhouette disguises a multitude of sins in style. And for the chilly winter days to come, is there anything more perfect for your work wardrobe than a knitwear dress? This “berry delicious” cosy jumper dress is the ultimate in comfy-chic, so easy to wear you’ll want to pop it on it every day.
Of course, you’re no slouch at work – but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock the effortless cool of the slouchy sweater! This high-neck jumper is a tempting combination of boxy fit, interesting texture and spicy colour – all adding a bit of sassy attitude to your work wardrobe! And if you love the soft feel of a sweatshirt but never thought it would be smart enough to wear to the office, take a look at this frilled top. Combining the athleisure trend with a girly ruffle embellishment, this works just as well with jeans and plimsolls as it does with a cute skirt and ankle boots.
With a little help from Warehouse, you may even find yourself eager to get back to work to show off your new style!
