We've got that back to school feeling at InStyle, when it's time to stock up those autumn/winter wardrobes with a fresh crop of work clothes.
Office attire is always a dilemma as it's never trendy enough to actually warrant splashing out too much cash but it's what we spend most of our lives wearing. Fear not, fashionistas, Banana Republic's latest range is the perfect mix of stylishly-cut pieces with on-trend details - the perfect solution to your workwear dramas!
We're particularly crushing on this chic military jacket (£110). Seen all over the designer runways, from Balmain to Pucci, the military trend is hot, hot, hot and this Banana Republic number is the topper of the season, ideal worn with black trousers or a pencil skirt for a modern take on the suit.
For a slinkier twist on the classic trench, we recommend swapping out your tired old canvas mac for this luxe satin trench (£125). It's ideal for that all-important work-to-bar transformation and is just the answer to the confusing mid-season weather.
Ladies, it's time to dress for success!
