Stylish shirts are the backbone of any woman's working wardrobe, no longer do they have to resemble your old school uniform as they are now available in a plethora of colours, bold prints and fabrics - you will be spoilt for choice! Every working wardrobe needs a sophisticated silk shirt such as the Ted Baker Anusha Shirt, which has taken inspiration from the utility trend with its' double patch pocket design and relaxed fit to inject some edge into an otherwise smart shirt. Another style which has proved popular this season is the wrap front blouse, such as the Maison Scotch Silky Draped Crossover Top, which provides a relaxed, yet feminine silhouette thanks to the beautiful draping across the front; paired with trousers or skirts, this top will add a feminine touch to the sharpest of suits. Prints are also having their moment in the spotlight and can instantly refresh your working wardrobe, we love the Samsoe & Samsoe Molly Checked Sheer Shirt with its' subtle diamond check print in rich royal blue. Pair these shirts with either a tailored pencil skirt or some smart pleated trousers to complete the sophisticated work look, it can even work after-hours too!

Fashion's current obsession with shirts has filtered through to dresses, with shirt dresses proving to be the style of the season due to their smart and sleek style. The Gant Braid Print Shirt Dress emulates this classic look and has been updated for the new season with a braid style monochrome print and tie waist, it is guaranteed to be one of your wardrobe favourites. One of our brand new arrivals, we love the Maison Scotch Jacquard Print Dress for a traditional shift dress silhouette with added texture and patten to make it a stand-out choice for work. Depending on the weather, a smart cover up such as a waterfall jacket or classic tailored blazer will instantly sharpen up your look and show everyone that you mean business. Some high heels such as the See By Chloe Block Heel Shoe will give you an instant confidence boost, plus the block heel will make them comfortable enough to wear all day and help you power through the day. Flats can also be formal enough for the office, one of our favourite styles are the Hudson Stanford HiShine Tassel Loafers; for an on-trend look, wear with some tailored trousers, a structured shirt and longline jacket to add an androgynous edge to your working outfit. Even if you want to opt for a simple work look, you can inject some colour and pattern into your outfit through the help of some accessories. The Ted Baker Faricap Fuchsia Print Scarf showcases a gorgeous deep floral print that is ideal for autumn and can instantly style up a minimalist outfit.

Like with ladieswear, a man's working wardrobe has evolved to include stylish colours and subtle prints to inject some life into formal suiting. A classic button-down shirt is a must for work, and we love the Gant Greenwich Poplin Check Shirt with its' rich, tonal check design; subtle enough to make it work-appropriate but the rich colours help to make a big impact. Another shirt staple has to be the traditional white shirt, such as the Duchamp Men's Herringbone Print Shirt - woven from Italian cotton, it's a premium quality design that will last for years; if you look close enough it also has quirky card suit detailing on the inside of the cuffs and collar. A man's working wardrobe is not complete without a good quality suit, one of our brand new arrivals is the Ted Baker Edeson Mini Design Contrast Blazer, which has a gorgeous textured appearance and sleek formal aesthetic. Wear your suit jacket with matching trousers for a traditional look, or be bold and wear with some contrasting colour trousers or chinos for an instant contemporary style.  For a more relaxed, laidback look, why not pair your shirt and trousers with a knitwear piece instead of a suit jacket? At the moment, we are loving the Fred Perry Classic Cardigan, it's still smart enough for work, but perfect for those days you want to dress more relaxed; as a finishing touch add a quirky tie to your shirt to complete the look. Another classic work staple has to be the traditional brogues, which will add a more formal touch to any office outfit. A good quality pair of leather brogues like the Grenson Stanley Brogues are an investment piece and will last you for years to come; Grenson shoes are handcrafted to the highest quality and due to their Goodyear welted sole they can easily be repaired and resoled to extend the life of your brogues. Perfect for the commute to work, the Herschel Little America Backpack has ample room to carry all of your work essentials . The Little America backpack comes with not only an internal media pocket to hold phones and MP3 players, but also a 15" fully padded and fleece lined laptop sleeve pocket to safely store electrical items in the main bag compartment; so you can be rest assured all your work will be safe. With custom air mesh back and shoulder padding, this backpack will make the commute to work a breeze.
