Workwear of the all black variety need not be boring. In fact, sticking to that classic 
light-absorbing hue allows you to seriously shake things up in the details department - sheer 
fabrics, edgy cut-outsmetal hardware and super-sleek tailoring can all come out to play, 
leaving everyone in no doubt you mean serious (stylish) business. Karen Millen once again 
comes to the fore here, with their directional take on the shirt and pant set being the perfect 
example of this modern approach to workwear. Edgy yet effortless, chic yet relaxed, it's all 
about exuding that all-important sophistication and professionalism expected in the office 
whilst pushing the boundaries and giving that little bit of attitude that helps set you and 
your style apart. 


Because what's business without a little risk, right?

Thanks to the likes of Marques' Almeida, MM6 Maison MargielaRaquel Allegra and veterans 
of visionary design Acne Studios and Alexander Wang, the concept of denim is changing. 

No longer relegated to the standard jean section, this classic material is seeping ever further 
into every part of the wardrobe. Tops, skirts, jackets, jumpsuits and dresses like the raw-edged 
beauty I'm wearing here are dominating the runways and I am personally loving it: never being 
much of a jean-loving girl myself, the more denim I can work into my everyday outfits in other 
ways the better. 

The key to styling is to keep everything else clean, classic and simple. Keep jewellery to a 
minimum, your bag sleek and your shoes low and preferably a little androgynous - sneakers, 
loafers or an edgy leather sandal will do the trick - and if your working with separates be sure 
to pare the denim back with crisp classics like white shirts, tuxedo blazers and tailored pants. 
Make the denim piece the focus and you're set.

THE HERO KNIT.

We know by now that I am all about the statement piece. Few such pieces, however, 
also double as trans-seasonal wardrobe staples capable of being both effortless yet 
striking all at once. 

Cue this cabled and fringed rarity by the ever-reliable Karen Millen. This bold 
hand-knitted creation is in fact a sweater dress that I've tucked up and turned around 
because I can't do anything by the book, but that's also the genius in these kinds of 
pieces - they can be tucked, tied, belted, stretched, layered and moulded however 
you wish, helping you through even the toughest of outfit dilemmas. 
A true hero if I've ever seen one. 

You can shop my outfit below + a few extra current season favourites to round off 
the look. There were only 200 of these knits made worldwide so snap it up quick 
for a truly unique find.
