Dress Down Friday Fears: On Safari

Dress Down Friday is a weekly terror for some. "Casual" and "corporate" are two words that just don't tend to mix, so it seems pretty twisted to torture us weekly with a day where we must teeter the balance between on- and off-duty. Help is on hand, however: each Thursday, theworkwearedit will bring to your desktops a little nugget of inspiration to help you plan an outfit for the follow day.

Inspiration from Lookbook.nu. Clockwise from top left: blouse, £14.99, H&M; bangles, £12, ASOS; satchel, £20, River Island; belt, £3.99, New Look; pumps, £35, Topshop; trousers, £16.99 (previously £34.99), Mango.

Back to Basics: The Pencil Skirt

Although each seasons's trends add a dash of excitement to both our lives and our wardrobes, sometimes we crave the reassurance of an item we know we can always rely on. Certain clothes are so ubiquitous that they are evident in almost all of our closets and comfort us with the knowledge they can be thrown together with both classic and new items to easily create a stylish, comfortable look. Second in the series is my pick of five pencil skirts that would slot perfectly into your fashion framework as either your first foray into this particular piece or as a subtle new season update.

Clockwise from top left: red, £29.99, Zara; floral, £109, Ted Baker; leather, £85, Oasis; panda, £28, Topshop; black, £12.99, New Look.
