Laid Back Luxe: Wow At Work With Lisa Snowdon's Brilliant Business Style
When it comes to daytime dressing, TV presenter and radio DJ Lisa Snowdon is always right on cue. She may have donned a range of glamorous outfits in her time as a model, besides sequins and fake tan for a run on Strictly Come Dancing, but these days Lisa rarely strays from her trademark laid back style. The star even managed to look relaxed and refined when she took to the trading floor alongside a few other famous faces for a Children In Need event. Despite the hectic environment, Lisa found time to take a break, showing off her long legs in smart jeans and suede boots topped with a printed blouse. Your own working day might be slightly more manic, but with these styling tips you can at least look as chic and in control as lovely Lisa. Prints charming
From shirts to skirts to trousers, prints are bang on trend for this season. Just remember the golden rules of pattern dressing: smaller prints work perfectly if you're petite while larger graphic designs are super flattering on curvy ladies. The heart design on Lisa's blouse is a quirky alternative to the classic polka dot. A pretty shirt is a great way to smarten up jeans but would look equally fabulous with a figure-hugging pencil skirt and stylish ladies' boots from K&Co for a winter-proof office outfit.
Choose the blues
Long-legged Lisa proves the merit of a good pair of skinny jeans. Mid-wash designs are a great choice if you like wearing your denims to the office, so get Lisa's classy look with these shaping skinny jeans from Next. Made of special fabric with a lifting and slimming effect, these jeans feature a pretty pocket detail for added impact. Wear them with a blazer, blouse and heels for work or dress them up with a camisole top and bright red court shoes for a glamorous evening look.
Unlike Lisa you may not get the chance to put your feet up at work but that's no excuse not to grab some eye-catching footwear! A pair of boots like Lisa's are a must as the British weather turns chilly. Knee high designs lengthen legs and look excellent with dresses and skirts as well as with jeans. Get the glamorous suede look with these Cormack stretch boots. Available in black or a softer grey shade, these imitation suede boots will put a stride in your step whether you're heading to work or for a stylish weekend shopping trip.
Jazz up your jewels
While Lisa's toned down accessories are a lesson that sometimes less is more, that's not to say you can't experiment with a show-stopping statement necklace or shamelessly decadent ring. Just remember to stick to one mega-watt piece to avoid looking too over-the-top, and avoid clashing colours if you want a polished look. Finish things off with minimal make-up: a dash of BB cream, a flick of mascara and a light coating of nude lipstick are enough to pull together this office outfit. Dressed to impress with this trendy look, it's time to show the world you mean business!
