WORKING THE LATEST TRENDS FOR THE OFFICE FROM OUR FASHION EXPERT


O IT MAY NOT FEEL LIKE it should be offi ce- appropriate attire, but when kept to


monochrome, leather is versatile and bang on trend for that tricky


seasonal transition from winter into


spring. A shift dress shows you mean business and will instantly add a sharp fashion edge to your workwear wardrobe. Céline, Versace and


Gucci all showed fabulous looks on the runways. Real leather may be pricey, but this is a trend that never


goes out of vogue, so investing is wise. If you are erring on the side of caution, however, then the high street has countless convincing faux


pieces. For those of you who feel leather is a little scary for daytime,


classic black and white is another great way to switch into spring in style. Team a sleek Parisian pencil


skirt, à la former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, with a printed top. It’s fashion made simple.
