When it comes to the office, trends are always a hard one to play into the corporate world, but the seventies are back this season, and all you need to do is rework these styles into your current wardrobe. A strong suit is a corporate classic. Start with a luxurious checkered wool suit. From the wide-leg pant to the subtly cinched waist and double-breasted design of the blazer, it’s the ultra flattering cut that always sets this style of suiting apart. Playing around with different textures such as plaid and check will give nod to the seventies trend, and give your work wear collection a little more character. Having a classic suit will allow you to mix and match with other separates, which will allow for versatility throughout your winter work wear wardrobe.

The midi skirt is another nod to the seventies, and a wonderful staple that allows you to take the look from day to night. Don’t be afraid to mix your prints and clash different hues. Team back with a printed high neck silk blouse or your go to
button up shirt for a feminine approach.

Winter is all about embracing outerwear, those pieces of fashion that everyone looks forward to wearer in the colder months. There is something luxurious and elegant about wearing a fabulous coat, whether it’s belted to give some shape, or something a little oversized. Some of this season’s must have’s is luxurious Italian wool’s, patent leather and check prints to take your style to another level.

No outfit is complete without the final touch of accessories, and this season is all about the pointed shoe, the cross body bag and gold jewellery. Whether you’re more of an ankle boot or pump kind of person, both styles make the perfect winter shoe that compliment any work wear outfit, giving your look extra sophistication. The cross body bag has been a favourite year after year, a seventies classic that is chic, compact and convenient, which makes the perfect 9-5 carry bag and is sure to be very versatile for the weekend.

Accentuate the vintage vibe by finishing off with some gold jewellery. Gold has always been a popular pick that works back with those warm winter tones seen throughout the collections this season. Opt for hoops earrings, a necklace or a bracelet, always keeping it simple for office.

Dressing from head to toe includes looking after your skin too. Working early hours and finishing late in the evening doesn’t always give you the luxury of time to hide those puffy eyes and dull skin, especially if you’ve been sleep deprived.
It’s all about your beauty routine! A great complexion starts with a good skincare routine cleanse, repair and protect. Cleansing is crucial on a daily basis, especially in the evening. Invest in a deep cleansing cream that will get rid of those impurities sitting on your skin that cause blockage and damage to your complexion. Repair with a retinol cream or serum for even skin tone and to help fight those ageing fine lines. And finally protect with a good quality SPF that is crucial for protecting your skin against the sun. Mecca Cosmetica and Aesop are known to carry some of the best quality products to get you ready for the extremely dry-skin season ahead.
