Workwear {Part Two}

Jumpsuit: £15, Primark. Leather bag: £165, Iris & Ink at The Outnet. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (in the January sales). Glasses: Burberry. Watch: £135, Shore Projects. Photograph: Ella Sadika
A jumpsuit to work? Yes, you can. Wear with 'sensible' flats so you don't feel too dressy and it can be really chic. This is the ultimate high-to low dressing - I am so pleased with this Primark jumpsuit, what a find! And paired with Jimmy Choo flats and the best bucket bag out there (at less than half the price of the Mansur Gavriel one), I feel pulled together and expensive.

It makes sense not to spend a fortune on something like a jumpsuit, especially when you don't know how long the trend will be around for, and then go high on the accessories. And the quality of this one is really good.

I'm sorry the Primark jumpsuit is not available to buy online (and is probably no longer instore) - I can't wear new clothes all the time, sadly! But have found some frugal alternatives below (the shoes, in particular are a great find).

  1. I have those TopShop shoes, which unfortunately have rubbed my heels raw on the first time of wearing! I really hope they soften up... Love the Jimmy Choos...
