Why I’m Embracing Pink as my Workwear Power Colour

Have you ever watched one of those films from the 1980s like Working Girl or Baby Boom and really looked at the corporate style of the main female characters? You wouldn’t be wrong for noticing how much the style was influenced by menswear. All boxy, broad shoulders, pantsuits and pinstriped.

Currently Obsessed

Currently obsessed with the designer of these trousers, Petar Petrov. I’ve tried on many a piece of his design, and fall in love with each one. Never before have I obsessed this much over a collection. They are luxe personified. These are the most flattering trousers I own. So why the hell not team them with a bright yellow jumper. The whole outfit screams positivity.
