Since this season is 1950's/early 1960's inspired (or Mad Men inspired) most high street shops have been selling vintage inspired pieces that you probably could find with a bit of searching in vintage, thrift or consignment stores. What are the top work wear pieces you should be looking for? Read on to find out:

1. The Shift/Wiggle Dress

A classic shape and a great way to get a vintage silhouette, choose a black or deep jewel toned colour since some of the bright colours worn in the past are considered inappropriate for many offices today.

2. The Sweater/Cardigan

A round necked cardigan or sweater with embroidered or beaded detailing is the perfect way to give a sweater girl vibe to any outfit. Wear it with a peter pan collared blouse underneath and let the collar peek out over the sweater/cardigan and you've got an amazing look.
