It’s no secret that this spring is all about statement sleeves. I never would have thought I’d love the trend as much as I do! Detailed sleeves have really improved my daily wardrobe and has freshened up basic looks that I’ve worn time and time again.
I recently bought this pie crusted collar black top from Topshop with a slight bell sleeve outline for £19 and this checked mini skirt from New Look for £16 with an on trend bow. I’ve worn the look in my downtime and often choose it as a more stylish work look.
I’m a firm believer that workwear doesn’t need to be boring and you can still be a pro-fashional working gal. You just need to pick items that are either simple or have feminine cuts. You don’t need to stray from patterns and prints, they help to inject some personality to your look.
This look ticks that box because both items have just updated the classic check skirt and black top that has been a war year after year in nearly every office across the U.K. Put a bow in your skirt this year, it will help to add some spice to your style, draws on the 80s fashion revival which is big this season, and exaggerated bows can give your outfit pieces some movement.
I like this look has taken simple pieces of clothing and with a few finishing touches of bell sleeves and a bow it is instantly updated and can work for the office and your own time. When the weather really warms it, I’d like to add a more Chanel approach and wear some chunky loafers and a duffle side bag with this look for a more street style luxe. The power of accessories will really help to play this look as either high fashion or casual high street style and that’s what adds to the outfit’s charm.
Do you have any statement styles that you’re wearing by this spring?
