When it comes to workwear, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. We are all guilty of wearing the same combinations on rotation – after all it can be rare to find five or six outfits that fit well, look smart, fashionable and amazingly, let you feel comfortable!
This is convenient when you wake up with Monday morning blues, or if you are rushing around and running late on hump-day, but it can get a little boring and leave you feeling less-than-enthused for a day of meetings and deadlines.
However, it is possible to create a capsule wardrobe of versatile, on-trend items to see you through the season without losing your oomph, or breaking the bank. That’s where Peacocks comes in. We’ve put together a workwear collection of fashionable, value-for-money and good-quality pieces that you can mix and match effortlessly style.
Browse below for our personal recommendations and style tips, and see the full range here for more power dressing options to keep you feeling fabulous nine-to-five.
If you don’t have one already, the black pencil skirt will soon become your best friend. Our black ribbed skirt is great value at £12 and adds a sophisticated edge to a multitude of outfits, while being muted enough to avoid looking samey.
Pair with some classic Mary Janes to provide a little lift without the discomfort of a stiletto and give your outfit a modern point of interest with this uber-smart, asymmetrical collared shirt and these gold statement earrings.
Alternatively, make an impact with a bold, block-colour blouse or layer up with a two-in-one window pane jumper for cosy style on chillier days.

For the ultimate power dress, look no further than this chic panelled dress. The use of colour here is slimming and the block style is simultaneously minimalist and show-stopping.
When a big meeting requires that extra confidence boost this dress is your go-to. But you could also style it like a skirt by wearing a black blouse on top. Team with an almond toe pump for every-day comfort or put a spring in your step with square-toe block heels.
Finish your look with a tailored tote bag to show you mean business and one simple necklace to keep this outfit clean and elegant: this metal curve necklace is perfect and will stand out subtly against the black of your dress.

They feel free and easy, but with a smart cut and an understated print our high-waist, wide-leg trousers have you looking office-ready in minutes. Pair the trousers with a monochrome shirt and you’ll be the envy of all your colleagues.
For accessories, try the feather tassel earrings to add a pop of colour, a tasselled handbag for an ode to festival cool and wedges to keep you walking tall all day.

As it gets colder, the roll-neck jumper is a must for a cold journey to work and a draughty office. But, they needn’t be boring.
Opt for our mid-blue ribbed roll neck jumper and the beautiful wintry shade will make you feel and look like you thrive in colder seasons – no matter how untrue that may be! Tuck it into an A-line skirt for shape and add an edge with a PU biker jacket. Complete the look with a block heel loafer and a chunky gold bracelet for a bit of bling.
Best of all, it’s easy to mix this outfit up â€“ just swap your skirt for some stretchy tapered trousers and switch your biker for a grey waterfall duster jacket, to create a whole new, chic look.
