YES, YOU CAN

Three tricky trends you thought you couldn’t wear to work. Trust us, where there’s a will, there’s a way

TRAIN­ERS

Teamed with re­laxed tai­lor­ing, train­ers can read ef­fi­cient and on the ball. Asos Aus­tralia’s Vanessa Carver flags them as one of the sea­son’s top work­wear trends. “They work well with our in­doors/out­doors life­style and can cross over from the week­end if they’re kept box-fresh.” (So leave the ones you wore on Satur­day’s hike at home.)

MASHED-UP FLO­RALS

That’s lay­ered flo­rals for the unini­ti­ated. Avoid look­ing like you dressed your­self in Aunt May’s cur­tains by keep­ing pieces stream­lined and mix­ing big and small scales. A blouse and a midi skirt: win­ning for the of­fice. A maxi-dress and a head­scarf: save it for Sun­day.

BARE SHOUL­DERS

Carver says off-thes-houl­der tops are an on­go­ing best­seller – but there are guide­lines when giv­ing col­leagues some cold shoul­der. Keep­ing part of the arms cov­ered and choos­ing longer skirts or pants will en­sure the at­ten­tion is on you for all the right rea­sons. And keep a jacket over your chair for meet­ings.
