Autumn Office Chic

The Trench: It's doesn't get more "London" that that. Keep the rain and the sharp autumn breeze away with a lightweight trench. This one is a classic Burberry Wool and Cashmere blend in Camel. But if it's the gorgeous caramel colour you are after, try Massimo Dutti's Classic camel Trench, just below £150! 
The Tote: oh my! This Aspinal of London Midi Marelybone is my season's crush. Not quite an "impulse buy" at £850, I admit, but if you must convince yourself, it's an investment piece. If you think that the Burgundy colour is difficult to wear, think again. You can pair it with blacks, greys and neutrals. And after all this is a statement piece, it makes everything look polished and professional.
The Tailored Cropped Trousers: ...with pockets may I add! For some reason I prefer tailored trousers with pockets, for the office. It makes it easier to stand around and look cool, when you are having a little chat. Better than folding your arms or...well, not knowing what to do with them, really. And this trio combination of tailored-cropped-with-pockets I found in Banana Republic's Avery Satin Crop, both in petite and normal sizes. Pair them with a soft L.K. Bennett Phoebe Cream Shirt and you'll be comfy all day!
The Gold: I've stayed away from shiny gold for decades. But lately these mat gold pieces, are slowly working their way into my daily wardrobe. Take this Circle Ring and  Circular Earrings for example, both from Jaeger, easy to wear, they add a little simmer and go particularly well with an all-black or even all-neutral looks.
The Flats: Everybody wants to look polished at work, but if you are catching the tube, the last thing you need is running around in heels all day; or even worse, get your heel caught in the escalators during rush hour. So, I'm thinking that pointy flats can do the job. These Heti Stud Flats from Dune, for example are cute and come in a couple of colour combinations. Not to mention that they are way cheaper than their Valentino cousins. Another choice in nude are the L.K. Bennett Clio Leather Flats in Marshmallow.
