A great women’s workwear look can be seriously tricky, particularly between the seasons. On one hand, you want to feel elevated and professional like the girl boss you so clearly are, but on the other hand it’s cold, it’s rainy and, frankly, trainers are more comfortable than killer heels could ever be. But what if we could find the happy medium between cool and contemporary, and owning-the-room smart, with officewear that you won’t mind being seen in on the weekend too.
Luckily, Dorothy Perkins has exactly that with a new edit of workwear guaranteed to take away the Sunday fear. Featuring colour pop brights that will put the sunshine in a grey day, along with cool girl tailoring, simple printed separates and even some sophisticated denim, these are professional pieces that will remain relevant long after the working week is done.
We’ve picked out three of our favourite workwear looks from the Dorothy Perkins spring collection that are not only creditable but are seriously cool too.
3 Genuinely Cool Spring Workwear Ideas From Dorothy Perkins
Make the morning commute the ride of your life in women's workwear you want to be seen in. We round up the best smart (and affordable) pieces to steal from the Dorothy Perkins insta-feed...
1. Supercharged Tailoring
Suits you! There’s no borrowing from the boys here, this season’s tailoring mood is all female. Command a room the second you walk in with a pop of sunshine yellow, made all the more serious with neutralising black accessories. Looking to take it down a notch? Deck yourself out in checks, styled with a neon knit and sleek white boots to increase the cool factor.
2. Print Clash
Instead of clashing meetings, clash stripes with checks for an easy chaotic combination that looks requires like it requires organisation to pull off. A monochrome printed shirt or blouse tucked into Prince of Wales check trousers is our new go to, but dare to involve some animal print if you're feeling really wild. [Image: @vickymcgee]
Nail It In One
Busy women need a look that wastes no time - that's why we're looking to outfits that tick the box for one-and-you're-done. You don’t need pants to wear the trousers: a killer dress with a powerful silhouette will do the job just as well. On cooler days, give your legs some coverage with a trending jumpsuit or boiler suit - just keep it profesh with grown up accessories.
