We’re here to help with all the latest trends to carry you through from 9-5 ‘til nighttime. After all, it makes sense to spend your hard-earned cash on pieces you can wear for work or play, doesn’t it?

Military is making a comeback, so we’re giving this V by Very double-breasted crop blazer  our full attention! Metallic gold buttons give a nod to the nautical trend, while the sophisticated black hue ensures that this blazer is boardroom-ready too. Whether you’re marching through meetings or soldiering on towards the weekend, this jacket is a work wardrobe must-have. We’ll be wearing it with skinny trousers and a fitted shirt for a sophisticated finish.

For weekend wow-factor, this jacket will look gorgeous paired with ripped skinnies and heels for relaxed drinks with the girls, or dress it down with boyfriend jeans and trainers when you’re feeling casual.

If you want a more feminine look, this V by Very peplum jacket  is classy enough for the office, and it comes in a dark shade of navy for a preppy twist. Stretch summer into autumn by teaming it with white skinny trousers and a cami, or pair it with darker hues when you’re ready to embrace the cooler climes.

When the weekend arrives, we’ll be toning this jacket down with our favourite indigo skinnies and tan ballet pumps, swapping for over-the-knee boots when the weather turns frosty!

We’ve saved the best ‘til last…

Every girl needs a killer pair of patterned pants in her wardrobe, so now you can keep your work look in check with these V by Very gingham skinny trousers . The perfect office to off-duty piece, you can let them do all the work by teaming them with a simple black shirt and ballet flats.

Own the after-work drinks look by swapping your formal footwear for a chic pair of strappy heels. For casual-cool, simply team these trews with a chunky knit instead.
