2. THE LONG SLEEVE BLOUSE
A beloved and classic staple, you can never go wrong with a crisp long sleeve button up. Made from 100% cotton, this blouse is sure to keep you cool, calm and collected in the office. Tucked into a pencil skirt or left loose over pants, the Passenger shirt comes in chambray, blush, black and white, because one can never have too many blouses!
3. THE BOYFRIEND BLAZER
While a structured blazer is perfect for job interviews and more formal occasions, having a boyfriend blazer handy for Monday to Friday office hours is crucial. Aside from the relaxed, comfortable feel and overall chicness of the piece, a boyfriend blazer is there to take you from your desk to your meeting, from your lunch to your dinner and from your office to your favourite bar hangout.

4. THE PENCIL SKIRT
The pencil skirt is not a new concept, rather a piece that continually transforms into exactly what we need it to be. This year we’re playing with textures and have fallen in love with the Ace Pencil Skirt in suede! The perfect accompaniment to a long or short sleeve blouse, this pencil skirt will have your colleagues staring for just a second too long! Shop the Ace Pencil Skirt in tan and black here!
5. CASUAL FRIDAY
The Break Away Wrap Dress in confetti black and little flower
Casual Friday, commonly known as the most cherished day of the week where you can somewhat get away with coming to work without brushing your hair after staying out for one too many vinos the night before. This year we’re really upping our casual Friday game with our current obsession: the wrap dress.
We figure, as long as it covers our shoulders and falls only slightly above the knee, we’ll be right! Gone are the days where monotones and sharp, angular lines rule the boardroom! It’s 2017 and this year we’re bringing a pop of colour back!
