Take your cue from London’s leading fashionistas who mean business in sharp boyish tailoring with a feminine twist.

Boyish tailoring with a feminine or creative twist is scorching hot right now.

Ensure you mean business this Autumn with your own designs on your work wardrobe.

Put a modern twist on the classic pinstripe suit and team with a floral or patterned shirt or blouse.

Go three-piece executive with a sharp waistcoat or leather cinch belt or Japanese obi belt underneath to accentuate your waist.

In the words of John Travolta as 1977 Saturday Night Fever discotheque superstar Tony Maero: “Just watch the hair. You know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it.”

Think about your crowning glory – your hair – when wearing masculine or toned-downed trouser suits. Add a touch of elegance and femininity to your tomboy strait-laced look.

Pick your style depending on your work personality. Big beehives or ‘wash and go’ to keep your look natural and responsive.

Or top it off with a statement hat – the classic bowler, coloured wool trilby or French beret for a Continental look.
