We caught up with Fashion Technology Journalist, Natalie Salmon to talk about all things workwear and beyond. She shares everything from how to make this season’s top trends work-appropriate to how to take the perfect office selfie.
Natalie describes her general workwear style as ‘classic with a twist’ and the Bonnie jacket and skirt is exactly this. A contemporary take on timeless tailoring, this stand-out two-piece is styled in a beautiful multi-coloured Italian tweed design with a raw edge trim, bringing a fun yet sophisticated feel to your workwear wardrobe. Pair with our Monica briefcase-style shoulder bag for a ‘back-to-business’ finish.
The perfect look for when your diary is brimming with back-to-back coffee catch-ups and lunch meetings, Natalie takes on the retro trend with our Thirties-inspired Bernice blouse. Featuring a nipped waist and skinny belt, it creates a beautiful silhouette. We ask Natalie if she’s had any fashion faux-pas moments in the past and she explains: "No, but I do regret going crazy with the Marie Kondo method in a bid to be more organised - I have given away so many clothes that I want back!"
Ditch the denim jeans with our Wilson button-front skirt, made from super-soft Italian denim. Ideal for those early spring commutes, Natalie pairs her with knee-high boots, a cosy knit and our oversized Lorelei tote bag - spacious enough to carry everything from your laptop to your make-up bag. Natalie’s top tip - swap out the knit and boots for a white tee and espadrilles when summer arrives.
A classic jumpsuit is always a go-to when you have those manic mornings faced with the ‘what to wear to work?’ dilemma. The Lois polka dot jumpsuit is an easy-to-wear one piece with on-trend puff shoulders and cropped wide-legs. Natalie pairs hers with our black brogues: "I always wear these brogues, they are really comfortable and make everything look instantly chic and presentable, even a boho dress. I like that they work in summer too."
