Reiss A/W 2020 – My Top Workwear Picks From the New Season

Reiss is having a bit of a moment for me.  In recent days, I’ve been plugging this dress like it’s nobody’s business on Instagram (and with good reason too… it’s seriously amazing!).

It’s no secret that I love their pieces. They inject some luxe into my rotation of workwear staples. I’m particularly fond of their coats and their knitwear.

Now that I’m adopting a more conscious approach to shopping than ever before, any new pieces that I add to my wardrobe have to go the distance. For me, it means taking a step back from the more trend-based pieces and opting for more classic cuts and neutral colour palettes.

My very first Reiss piece was the khaki coat pictured below.  I purchased it at the end of 2016 – heavily pregnant too, so it could have been a disaster – but it has and continues to be a trusty workhorse in my A/W wardrobe.

I’m sharing with you my top picks from Reiss’ current A/W collection. I’ve singled out my top picks of knitwear, dresses and some structured jackets for good measure.

#1 – Ruffle hem knitted dress

A knitted high-neck midi dress with a ruffle hem? Yes please! I think khaki is a wonderful neutral. It pairs so well with black, navy and camel.

You can shop the dress in both khaki and black.

#2 – Draped knitted dress

It wouldn’t be a complete list of my favourites without the inclusion of a navy number. The subtle asymmetric neckline and draping at the waist are a real winner for me.

You can shop the navy dress here. It also comes in a beautiful beige neutral tone.

#3 – Camel blazer

My love affair with lighter neutrals continues. A camel blazer has been on my wishlist for the longest time. This long-line jacket is textured and structured. I’m also favouring double breasted styles over single breasted as I find they look so good fastened, open and belted.

You can shop the camel version or the equally chic khaki version.

#4 – Navy blazer

Continuing my love of double-breasted blazers with this textured navy number.

You can shop the jacket here.

#5 – Overcoat

I’ve got a pretty healthy coat collection but I’ve yet to add a lighter neutral to the mix. Personally, I consider this wrap style to be universally flattering. A softer structured coat makes it easily workable for the weekends too.

You can shop the coat here.

#6 – Drape knit top

Reiss has absolutely nailed the drapey neckline. This knit top is simply divine.

#7 – Sheer knitted top

I love the versatility of a sheer babywool knit. It’s a delicate piece and one that I consider works perfectly for the office with its simplicity and sophistication.

Shop the knit here. It also comes in black.

And here’s a handy round-up of my favourites:

As always, thank you again for stopping by.
