What To Wear To Work

Time and time again we are faced with the dilemma of what to wear to work. We strive to look sophisticated and stylish, whilst still leaving an impression of professionalism . The prominent question of what to wear is a recurring one from Monday to Friday and morning after morning we often find ourselves rummaging through our wardrobes frantically in order to find something appropriate. Whether your profession is corporate or creative, dressing for work doesn't have to be boring and at Havren we have just the thing for you.  Functional yet fashionable its time to get excited about dressing for work and get your wardrobe in gear for AW15.

The Classic Look

Looking professional is often key for striving in a work environment and although dressing for a corporate environment isn't always the most exciting, it is still possible to look chic and fashion forward, whilst remaining appropriately dressed. Suits are essential and that is why we have chosen to match our Regular Stretch Bootcut Trousers with our Black Crepe Tuxedo Jacket.  

Our Bootcut Trousers are smart, flexible and flattering and are tailored from a soft stretch fabric which gives them a luxurious feel. This combined with its straight leg simplicity will command respect in the workplace. Our Crepe Tuxedo Jacket works perfectly with these. Modern and chic, the tailored style will instantly update your work look and its versatility makes it the perfect cover up to smarten up any outfit. For example it can also look great thrown over skinny jeans and a blouse for an easy going cool look.

For work however we have chosen to team it with our Piped Nude Silk Shirt made from 100% pure silk.  The long sleeve shirt with its two front pockets and piping detail will add a touch of glamour to your everyday work ensemble whilst still looking classic and corporate.

Glamorous With A Pop Of Colour

If your tired of the black suit and are looking for something a little bit more creative then why not opt for a pop of colour. Empowering and feminine, colour can work wonders to give you that added boost of energy and brighten up the office.  It is perfect for inspiring creativity if you work in a design or fashion environment, and we also love playful prints and vibrant hues.  If this is the look your going for then take a look at our  Gathered Stretch Jersey Dress.

The dress is the perfect bold addition to your transitional wardrobe and will ensure your radiate poise and confidence at any meeting.  The modest high neckline combined with the ruched waist detailing makes it work freindly whilst still remaining stylish. The high quality jersey material makes this dress a versatile peice and will allow you to move seamlessly from meetings to cocktails, just swap playful pumps for killer stilettos. For added sophistication we would recommend teaming the Gathered Stretch Dress with our Black Peplum Blazer. A great alternative to a tuxedo shape, this jacket has a zipped front and slight peplum kick to flatter the silhouette. Guaranteed to make you look polished and pretty whilst adding some more personality to your everyday work attire.

Smart Casual

The smart casual work look is a very versatile one and perfect for those less corporate environments where you are still required to make an effort.  For this look we love our Black Stretch-Jersey pencil Skirt as it is effortlessly cool but inherently wearable.  A wardrobe essential, it was designed with the career woman in mind and its quality jersey fabric combined with a front ruched effect and sleek pencil shape makes it a versatile office staple.  It can be teamed perfectly with our Printed Henley Blouse which is made from a beautiful silk fabric and comes in a loose relaxed fit with a blouson sleeve.
