Workwear with a SS16 twist

Working in the fashion industry means that I don’t have a definitive workwear uniform. Instead, I can trial new looks to suit my style. But even if you work outside of fashion, or other creative industries, you can still reinvent your working wardrobe while still adapting it to your work environment. And now that we are officially in spring, I thought to revisit the SS16 shows and create a catwalk to high street edit of fresh styles for working women. I’ve taken inspiration from some of my favourite looks to storm the catwalk for spring/summer 16 and reinterpreted them with designer items that have been reduced, as well as clothing from high street stores. I hope this will inspire you when updating your working wardrobes for spring.

Side slit skirts (because it’s ok to be a bit daring with your work attire)
