I’ve just gone freelance and I’m wearing more jeans and t-shirts than ever at home, however I still like to wear something smart when heading into the city centre or working from a local coffee shop. I know how hard it can be to dress right for whatever job you have, so I’ve decided to start a series on my blog called the Nine to Five Edit.
I really want to bring to you guys some interesting looks that you can wear for work and feel fashionably. So no boring work clothes here, just fun, versatile pieces that you can purchase and wear time and time again.
This first look is all about styling out the heat in these hot summer months. I did think about finding a dress, but sometimes I like to wear lightweight trousers for the office. Some workplaces love to turn the air-con right up so it feels more arctic than normal. Here I’ve gone for a soft yellow pair from H&M. They stock some beautifully structured pieces of clothing that are just perfect for the office. I especially love their selection of trend based blouses and tops. I find them very easy to work into my wardrobe for work.
Some other lovely work wear pieces ...
For some added contrast I teamed my yellow trousers with this v neck cami top and my favourite knotted sandals from Jigsaw. Honestly I still think they are the best pair of shoes I’ve bought this summer season. For any work look, I create, the details from my shoes to my bag, to the necklaces I wear can make a huge difference. So I would encourage investing in shoes, like when your mum did before school started in September! I’ve put together some more pieces that I think you can mix and match within any wardrobe. Do let me know if like this series and if there any shops you want to see based on workwear?
