It may not feel like it outside but spring has definitely sprung… Well into your wardrobe anyway! The big new season land has happened in every store up and down the high street, so this week our sales assistant session chats to T.M Lewin about all things spring, office wear and insider tips. We are about to prove to you that work wear doesn’t need to be boring…
Name - Kathleen Sinclair
Position - Sales Associate at T.M. Lewin
What are the key pieces for this season?
The black and white Kara button through top, the Gail etched floral ruched dress and the floral blouse are all key for this springs wardrobe.
What trends are you focussing on this season?
I would say smart/casual so clothing you can wear into work but then dress up for a Friday night out on the town, so pieces you can easily dress up and dress down.
Sounds good to me! So what would be a good way to dress up an outfit that you’ve worn to the office?
With our key pieces you wouldn’t need a lot as they speak for themselves, perhaps some statement jewellery. For example this classic Gita Acetate Navy Dress I would go with a statement necklace for a night out on the town.
And do you have any insider styling tips?
I would say always try to keep it simple
What items are doing well this season?
That’s quite a difficult one because we’re currently in the middle of making the change from the winter to spring seasons, this patterned dress is going to be a popular choice though.
What items would you put together for this season?
I’d definitely use this Jill pleated shell red top, the Spring Season is seeing a lot of pops of really bright colours – bright pink, bright greens so it would work really well with some of the suits we’ve got to give them that extra lift. Also the Kara button through black and white top would work great as part of a suit but you could wear it with a pair of high waisted jeans for a more casual look. The Hayley Collarless coat teamed with the Gita navy block dress you could even get away with wearing to a wedding, that dress is so versatile!
What are your favourite things about working here?
The people who come in the store, there’s never a dull moment because you never know who’s going to come in next, or what sort of questions they’re going to ask. And it goes without saying my colleagues!
We are glad that all you sassy shoppers keep Kathleen on her toes! Why not style your very own work wear wardrobe now with T.M Lewin and Mallzee? Even your work wardrobe deserves a spring clean right? Remember, dress for the job you want, not the one you have…
