Start your week off with a no-fuss denim blouse.
Monday mornings can usually leave you feeling stumped and uninspired when it comes to picking out your outfit for the day.
So rather than slump into another boring grey skirt suit, add some excitement to the start of your week with an updated denim blouse! Stay on trend with details like a tuxedo collar or exaggerated cuffs, and stay office-appropriate with darker washes.

Wear it like a boss on Tuesday.
Show ’em that you mean business with a new way of wearing your black blazers.
Retire your traditional boot-cuts and experiment with raw hems and new silhouettes and shapes. Then, tuck your blazer in, stack a couple of rings and rock up to the office like you run the show.

On Wednesdays, work the patchwork!
Hump day means that the weekend is nearing, so you can afford to start pulling out options that are a little playful.
Case in point? A patchwork dress. Mixing different denim washes and colours actually helps to give it a directional twist and can be worn to work when accessorised properly. Plus, a textured turtleneck equals an instant style upgrade.

Thursdays call for a going-out top.
Given that most clubs run Ladies’ Nights on Thursdays, hit your favourite watering hole in a look that is grown-up and flirty at the same time.
Start with a statement skirt, and ground flouncy frills by adding a denim corset.

Free-and-easy denim for Fridays!
