The first edition of Workday Wednesday! Any postgrad who has spent time in an office can tell you that dressing for work can get boring very fast. One way to bring more style into your work wardrobe is with Chanel inspired jackets. The iconic label has absolutely perfected the tweed suit, but since it is preeeetty far out of my price range, I will settle for a few of these jackets instead. For casual Fridays, pair the look with skinny dark jeans, ballet flats, and a nice top. Or pair these with a pencil skirt or slacks and heels for a dressier look. When buying, look for a tweed or boucle fabric with contrasting trims. These fabrics look sophisticated and balance out chain detailing, animal print, or bold colors!
