SHE used to be on Suits and she looks killer in suits (but then, Meghan Markle could wear my nan’s curtains and look amazing).
A suit- or just a jacket or a pair of good trousers- make you feel ready for business. And the best bit? There are some amazing pieces on the high street this spring and you don’t need the budget of a soon-to-be Duchess to get your self some seriously smart tailoring.
Obviously there are the usual suspects for great work-wear; think Marks and Spencer, Next, H&M. But below you’ll even see tailoring at Primark!
Here are my picks of the best bits coming into stores now. I’ve linked direct where I can if the pieces are in store now!
You don’t have to leave your personal style at home when you go to work. You can incorporate colour, pattern and shape during office hours. I’ve written a post on top tips for work-wear style here.
