Oversized cardigans can be sexy

The naughty British girl loves a good party, and you may never know if she’s going to the office straight from a night out or not. She wears her silk skirts and satin dresses paired with chunky oversised sweaters and ankle boots, achieving a cool and “unintentionally” sexy office look.

Suits with a twist

Everywhere in the world, the go-to office outfit is a suit. But when wearing a suit, choose pants with extra-wide legs like this caramel suit that we saw at the #LFW. It looks even cooler when paired with a black shirt.

Jeans jackets and bikers

Whether a jeans jacket or a biker thrown over a girly dress or skirt gives a bit of toughness to the feminine outfit, balancing the look. It is an excellent styling trick that allows you to wear a chic dress to work, for example. The jacket also allows you to start wearing dresses even before spring. Finish your look with ankle boots like a true Londoner.

Blazers are your best friends

You can’t go wrong with a well-cut blazer. Wear a blazer over t-shirts, pullovers and dresses for a polished office outfit. Go for a black and white combination if you want a super elegant and easy-to-put-together look. Remember Kate Moss, the queen of blazer and denim!

Wide legs are chic, and so are stripes

Victoria Beckham is the perfect example of how to look chic in wide-leg trousers. As we mentioned before in the article The items we’ll be wearing this year, Bermuda shorts will be a must in 2020. So why not marry wide-leg trousers and Bermuda shorts? Wear stylish wide-leg culottes with colourful striped pullovers and boots to uplift these last cold days before spring.

Mixing patterns and colours

The Brith girl is confident; she never shies away from mixing bright colours and patterns, especially heritage patterns like plaid, which she wears not only to the office but also to go out with friends or during a weekend in the countryside.
