January brings with it that ‘back-to-school’ feeling, so there’s no better time to refresh your workwear wardrobe.
We’re not talking a major overhaul here. Just a few carefully chosen updates that will get you in gear for the year ahead.
Plus, with the spring collections starting to land in stores, it’s also time to dip your toe in next season’s trends, with transitional pieces inspired by the SS20 catwalks.
Here are three easy ways to perk up your nine-to-five style for the new year…
Soft hues like ivory and beige were popular, but we also saw flashes of citrus brights – orange is going to be everywhere come spring.
