Work it.

Office fashion rarely sets the world alight, but with the influx of plaid blazers, buttery leather, and retro 1970s-style pieces into shops this season, we've been rethinking our approach to boardroom dressing.

While many rules still ring true - your professional attire should make you look the part after all - there are plenty of ways to up the ante when it comes to 9-to-5 power dressing. Unexpected fabrics (like these knit wool track-pants from River Island below and Topshop's honey-hued relaxed-fit velvet blazer) and new takes on established silhouettes (cropped corduroy trousers   and blazers with built-in wide waist belts) are hard-working additions to your wardrobe.

When you're making the whole 'work thing' look this easy - who needs interns?
