Oasis sale picks

14 Jun
The summer sales have officially started! A few retailers went into sale last week but the majority seem to be joining in the fun this week. Yesterday I checked out the Oasis sale and found lots of pretty items for my work wardrobe. Those who follow me on Twitter will know I’ve become a little obsessed with my work wardrobe – particularly searching for the perfect work shoe. I used to dress very smart for work (think City worker – pencil skirts and blouses) but my current workplace (anonymous fashion retailer) is a little more relaxed. I think it’s easy to fall into the trap of wearing lots of black because ‘it looks smart’ or dressing far too casual just because you can. In summer, black can look too heavy and dark and I’m starting to think it’s good to dress like I’m going to work rather than heading out with friends at the weekend!
The pieces I’ve picked from Oasis all have little details – a bit of embellishment here, a ruffle there – to keep them fun and feminine. I think my favourite piece is the bright blue sheer blouse. Sheer is such a huge trend this season, as are brights and colour blocking. I’d wear it with a little cami underneath to make it work-appropriate. The cami can be slipped off if you’re heading out for drinks after work and it will look equally good with some tailored trousers or a skirt. The swallow print tunic is also gorgeous, the shape makes it perfect for days you’re running around from meeting to meeting and it will look so cute with flats which is always a plus at work.
