2014 spring trends for women’s work wear

With winter coming to an end, it is time to give your wardrobe a much needed spring clean and refresh your office outfits with SS14’s hottest trends. It can sometimes be difficult to decide on work wear for women as there are so many options available and what you wear has to look professional as well as stylish. Here are three spring trends that can easily be incorporated into your working wardrobe.

Pretty prints:

Adding prints is a wonderful way of injecting colour and personality in to your outfit whilst still appearing professional.  Spring/Summer 2014 is all about florals and this season’s trend has been updated with graphic designs and vibrant colours. Subtly introduce perennial prints into your work wear by styling a floral blouse with your suit. Alternatively a pretty, floral, silk scarf will instantly update a white cotton shirt.

Pastel palette:

This season’s palette is fresh and delicate with soft blush pinks, mint greens and pale blues. Your office ensemble doesn’t have to be drab and even the most colour phobic of us can easily pull this trend off. Keep the new season’s shades simple by pairing neutral tones with pastel hues, such as a nude dress with a blush blazer.

Updated classics:

The classic white button down shirt was updated on the runway with a ladylike twist. Ladylike tailoring and feminine silhouettes are replacing last season’s androgynous trend. Fitted shirts embellished with Broderie Anglaise, frills and necktie detailing complete the genteel aesthetic. Traditional English shirt maker, Hawes & Curtis, has a beautiful collection of high quality, fitted ladies shirts in their Boutique, Office and Fashion ranges.

Whether you work in a casual, creative environment or have to follow a strict dress code, these three key trends are subtle and easy ways to dress for success this season.
