Spruce up for Spring

Spruce up for Spring

Fed up with wearing back-to-back black? If your office wardrobe hasn’t seen color since the great heat wave of ’03, it’s time to get a move on. Spruce up your work wear for spring with color pop apparel from the likes of Preen, Mawi and Être Cécile.

Pretty in Preen

UK designers Preen know a thing or two about boldness. For 18 years, design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi have been bringing their eminent range of apparel to fashion week catwalks across the globe. Their latest collection gives monochrome a contemporary update as bold red florals and white-black patterns coincide to create truly up-to-the-minute pieces. Make a statement at the office with this head turning preen clothing number, the flattering shift fit and riotous design will look superb paired with a leather jacket and kitten heels.

Statement Jewels

If you really can’t banish the black, make an impact with a statement necklace. Distract your co-workers with this embellished piece from the designers behind luxury jewellers Mawi. Wearing the glitterati on your sleeve, neck or arm is easy with Mawi for they specialise in glamorous, attention seeking accessories which are sure to turn heads. Featuring a triple chain adorned with covetable Swarovski crystals, pearl effect fastening and rose gold spikes, this necklace will brighten up even the tamest outfit.

Luxe Sweatshirts

On non-meeting days, nothing but cosy clothing makes the cut. After all, who wants to be hunched over their desk in a structured suit? Comfort is key. Luckily Être Cécile have made it so comfort doesn’t have to mean compromising on style. Specializing in high-impact t-shirts and super chic sweatshirts, London based Être Cécile have cornered the luxe-streetwear market. Crafted from super soft cotton and featuring collegiate style ribbed cuffs and a parisienne headline, the bulldog motif has never looked so sophisticated. An added bonus is that this sweatshirt is uncomplicated to style, simply team it with cougar blue skinnies and understated flats.

High Impact Handbags

Women are to handbags as magnets are to fridges, fact. The latest craze to hit the fashion world is the transparent clutch, a concept made famous by the designers behind Klear Klutch. A quick google search returns hundreds of trendsetting fashionistas showing off these neon, iridescent or plain clutches. Although you may have to think twice about packing your bag in the morning, this eye-catching accessory is sure to alleviate the endless rummaging that comes with zip locked bags.
