A post-Covid life is just over the horizon as offices prepare to welcome workers back. And what better reason to give the ol’ workwear wardrobe a bit of a dust off and refresh as we shift back to working in the company of our colleagues once again.

To mark this shift, over the next couple of weeks on the blog, I’m going to share my top picks from my favourite workwear brands as we all make preparations to navigate a return to the office (or ‘RTO’ as I’m seeing it being referred to by the cool cats). 

I’m kicking off this series with Karen Millen, always a treasure trove of workwear – particularly if you work in a conservative office environment like I do.  I recently placed an order with Karen Millen to take advantage of their sale (and picked up this trench dress), and given the sale is still running, I thought now was as good a time as any to share my top workwear picks so you can take advantage.

Size-wise, I take a size UK 8 in Karen Millen and I’m a true size AU 8 / US 2-4. Their sizing is pretty consistent. And just a note on their petite range, while it’s purportedly designed for those under 5’4, I still find the items from this range to be really long (I’m 5’2) – I thought it would be worthwhile pointing out just to manage your expectations. I typically just buy from their regular range and accept the fact that trousers would need to be hemmed (though I’ve never found the need to hem any of my Karen Millen dresses).
