My job means I regularly have to attend meetings and events, and I’ve found that there’s only so many pairs of black trousers you can own. Having trailed around numerous shops looking for something different, I’ve once again discovered Zara.
I’ve been in over the past few weeks and managed to find several outfits that are smart enough to wear for work and a bit more exciting than black trousers! Camel is the big colour this season and Zara has numerous different styles of clothing that will suit anyone. I also love blouses and they have a fantastic range which can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. What’s also fantastic about Zara is its pricing: their clothes look like high-end fashion, yet they only cost a fraction of the price!
Last week I bought a women’s pair of chinos (below) – they are definitely not my usual style, but they look great teamed with some black suede wedges and a white t-shirt. I must admit though, I really don’t think this image does them justice.
I’ve since gone out and bought them in navy, along with a striped polo neck tee to match.
I’ve also purchased this blouse which looks great with black trousers, or tucked into the chinos above.
I’m actually planning to make a trip back later today to purchase a pair of jodhpur-style trousers that I saw when I was there at the weekend. I bought some black platform boots from Next recently that they would look great with! I may also purchase a few more blouses which means my capsule workwear wardrobe will finally be complete.
If you’re looking to mix up your workwear collection to ensure you’re on-trend this season, Zara is a definite recommendation!
