Olivia Palermo, Amal Clooney and Solange Knowles are the pinups for channelling #GirlBoss with a dash of personality. An unexpected layer or pop of colour can be appropriate and standout at the same time. Talk about multitasking…
Don’t fear colour, it’s spring after all. When it comes to the nine-to-five, opt for separates and accessories that can add just a hint of hue.

On the Case
Nothing says “I mean business” quite like a suit. Take your cue from the X-Files chicest investigator, Dana Scully.
A matching blazer and pant—in a neutral black or white—is the pairing you’ll wear together (and separately) over and over.

Look polished no matter what’s on your agenda with a crisp white shirt dress.
In the Trenches
Lightweight and luxurious, the tailored trench coat is made for commuting.
Wear the Skirt
Whether your pair with a shirt or a tee, a high-waist midi-skirt is the must-have feminine power piece.
Under the Table
The time has come to trade in black winter booties for a white-hot—and boardroom-appropriate—heel.
Do Your Vest
Spring weather can be erratic, so invest in pieces that are perfect for layering no matter what the forecast.
In the Bag
From your laptop to your lipstick, there’s no need to pack light when toting one of these haute handbags.
Keep your jewellery personal and non-distracting to your day-to-day look. A cuff that can be worn on a bare wrist or over a shirt is the look du jour.
