This season the skirt suit is back and Kate Middleton is leading the trend. But if her Paule Ka version is out of your budget, ELLE has scoured the high street for the best of the rest.
Add a slouchy angora jumper like fashion intern Lizzie, or sex up with ankle strap heels like Features Director Alice Wignall.
A plain t-shirt is the cool girl's option, and ankle boots will make it edgy, as shown by Stacey Duguid. Experiment with shape - like Carven's lantern skirt worn by Alannah.
And if skirts aren't for you, ELLE has the high street trouser suit covered too. Buy this month's issue of ELLE where you'll find a workwear supplement dedicated to it.More
