Zalando Takes Its Work Wardrobe to the UK

I was contacted a few weeks ago by the brand Zalando in reference to their new presence in the UK. For those who aren’t familiar with them, they are online shop that is still fairly new to the UK, but they are the market leader in Germany for selling shoes, fashion and beauty products online. They asked me if I could browse through their site to create a look appropriate for the work wardrobe. You know I love a challenge! Here are some looks that I really thought stood out within the site.

To start with, I see why they do well with selling shoes. These booties by Fly London had me dreaming of textured tights and a tweed skirt suit! I adore the color, and the buckle detailing is fantastic. Plus it’s really difficult at times finding booties that are truly booties (aka they don’t go over the ankle). These lucky finds also come in red, FYI.

As you all know, I really like thinking outside the box with work fashion. Do you have a piece that isn’t particularly work appropriate by sight? I can see what I can do to make that garment ideal for your dress code! This tunic dress from their French Connection line, for example, would really make a statement at work with black cigarette pants, booties, sheer hosiery socks, and a long-sleeved black crew neck top under the tunic. Add a patent belt or a pair of chandelier earrings for an extra kick! For those at a slightly more conservative office, replace the booties with pumps and throw on a two-button silk blazer over the tunic. Work wardrobe heaven!
