January is officially the most miserable time of year, when the summer holidays are so far away and all that remains is week upon week of work ahead of you. Although you can’t run away from the office, why not cheer yourself up by investing in some new workwear? Almost nothing beats the excitement of putting on a new outfit, so it would give you something to look forward to and help put you in a better mood throughout your day.
At this time of the year, it does seem like the stores go a little workwear crazy, and to be honest, a lot of the ‘corporate attire’ mass offerings end up looking the same. If your workplace allows, why not opt for something a little less formal and more fun?
We’re thinking Fred Perry would give your office wear the perfect pick-me-up! In recent years, the once sportswear-only label has become quite the fashionable destination, and like us, you probably recall it amongst Amy Winehouse's favourites. We can still learn a style trick or two from her modern take on that smart casual Fifties look that would be acceptable for the workplace. Infuse your office style with that iconic Brit look with the choice between Fred Perry's smart yet relaxed shirt dresses and pretty knits including spotty jumpers and preppy cardigans.
