With the weather up and down like a yoyo – am I hot, am I cold, am I suffering from early menopause? – getting ready in the morning is becoming time consuming and a straight up pain. Maybe you are one of those super organised folks who put out your clothes the night before, but for most of us very Irish people we take a look out the window – or in 2017 check our app – to get a glimpse of the day ahead and decide last minute what to wear the office/cage.

In the morning rush – no, nobody has stuck to that ‘getting up 30 minutes early to do mediation’ new year resolution – I find myself reaching for three elements to make up an outfit. Blazer. Cropped jean – Mom or cropped flare. Court style shoe, or the 2017 variation of the court thanks to Pheobe Philo.

Why all so good? Well, a blazer can go over anything, even the most hideous or worn looking t-shirt. They are great for this weather when it gets a little hot in the office, they are comfortable, and you always look smart in a blazer. While many people cannot wear jeans to work – poor you! – the Mom jean or cropped flare seem to be the more dressy of the jean family. They can look smart – with said blazer – enough to wear to the office once paired with the right top and shoe (plenty of examples below). This brings me to the skin baring shoe. For a lot of people it is FAR too early to be showing any skin, even on your feet. But I have opted for the court shoe sans sock for some time now, given the mild January we had, and I have to say I love it! I feel I have more choice when not restricting myself to the winter boot everyday, and again, this shoe style dresses up my blazer and Mom jeans in no time – and I have no time.

Lots of inspiration for you………….

So the moral of the story is; invest in black court shoes and a black blazer, and Emmanuel Alt is the High Queen of the blazer/jeans/court shoe uniform. Watch and take notes.
