Glen Plaid Wool Coat

Checked coats are big news this season – couple that with the brown trend, and you have yourself an on-trend layering hero. This wrap design has flattering appeal and will go perfectly with Autumn/Winter’s cream and rust palettes.

Glen Plaid Wool Coat, £699

Tie Neck Silk Blouse

We love a pussybow, but if a big flourish is a little much for the office, try this tie-detail blouse instead. Black trimming gives the top a little something extra, whilst also referencing the Victoriana trend – perfect with monochrome extras.

Tie Neck Silk Blosue, now £183.20

Double Breasted Wool Coat

A military peacoat will last a lifetime, so it’s worth investing. This Ralph Lauren design ticks all the boxes, from its longline fit to its thick wool finish, making it a layering hero.

Double Breasted Wool Coat, £699

Cotton Button-Down Shirt

A crisp white shirt can form the foundation of endless looks, and an oversized fit is essential for a contemporary feel. Tuck into skinny fit trousers or pencil skirts for balanced proportions.

Cotton Button-Down Shirt, now £87.20

Tie-Neck Striped Silk Blouse

Want an easy way to update monochrome? Look to statement stripes. This black and white shirt has instant glamorous appeal, whilst still being office-appropriate - add leather separates for a real power look, or tailoring to mute the piece.

Tie-Neck Striped Silk Blouse, now £183.20

Wool Cashmere Jumper Dress

Want an easy hack for looking pulled-together whilst staying warm? The humble jumper dress is deceptively smart when paired with long boots, creating the illusion of a glamorous edit whilst still keeping you cosy come winter.

Wool Cashmere Jumper Dress, £249

Ruffle Trim Cotton Top

The skinny black polo is a great layering piece, but for something with a little more interest we love this ruffle-trim design. Sub in and out where appropriate…

Ruffle Trim Cotton Top, £135

Wool Blend Chesterfield Coat

No wardrobe is complete without a camel coat, and this fuss-free design will keep you covered for seasons to come. An easy way to bring monochrome to life, layer over black and white separates for a chic winter feel.

Wool Blend Chesterfield Coat, £499

Floral Georgette Dress

Workwear needn’t be all neutrals and tailoring – a floral print midi dress is perfect with low slingbacks for a polished look, and this design, with its prairie fit and feminine details, is a winner.

Floral Georgette Dress, £429

Silk Georgette Top

For a polished, grown-up take on office wear, a cream silk blouse is essential. Another great foundation piece, dress up with gold details or team with plaid and houndstooth for a modern feel.

Silk Georgette Top, £175

Ribbed Turtleneck

A skinny black polo neck is the chic way to do warm winter dressing – vamp up the look with heels and a leather midi, or add to more trend-led separates to ground your look.

Ribbed Turtleneck, £115

Pleated Georgette Skirt

There’s nothing more satisfying than finding separates that work for both the office and off-duty, and this georgette skirt ticks both boxes. Perfect with silk blouses for work and trainers on the weekend, it’s a versatile piece you’ll keep coming back to.

Pleated Georgette Skirt, now £183.20
