 The modern wardrobe should be all about versatility and classic design, especially in the 
work realm. 

Cue this vest and culotte set by Karen Millen, a beautifully relaxed take on tailoring that 
is perfect for on- or off-duty. I like to emphasise the minimal lines with sleek loafers and 
neat clutch, and you could also get your layer on with the matching blazer or trench 
for added sophistication and trans-seasonality. 

This isn't just workwear - it's wear that works.

Playing around with old favourites to feed my love of tan, my favourite neutral. 
You can of course go top-to-toe with this classic hue (as I have done on occasion
or simply pair it with your favourite black staples for more of a modern edge.

Scroll through below to shop the look + my top tan picks of the moment.

INSTINCTUAL.

Having a strong penchant for top-to-toe black (or white, grey or khaki) as I do, I am increasingly 
drawn to more interesting and off-beat silhouettes as a way to break up the monotony of 
mono-tonal dressing (I went there). 

Unapologetically oversized silky layers combined with uneven-hemmed pants that could be a 
skirt and shoes that are almost a loafer but more of a mule is what we have this time around, 
topped off with the usual essentials and undone hair. 

Not unlike a high-end pyjama set, I will admit, though again it's that off-beat quality that strikes 
my interest nowadays - that sense of 'what precisely is she wearing...?' that I hope to conjure up 
for others that keeps things interesting for everyone.

Non-trend-based, instinctual style is the aim of the game now, so here's to shaking things 
up one question mark at a time.
