Summer Sales 2014: Brilliant Buys For Your Work Wardrobe

Bored of what you wear to the office? It's the perfect excuse to pick up a few bargains in the summer sales. (Yes, they're still on!)

Whether you're channelling Mad Men's Joan Harris or you just can't get away with wearing jeans every day of the week, a few key pieces will freshen up your look in a flash.

It's amazing just how much of a difference a sleek pencil skirt and/or a crisp white shirt can make to your work wardrobe too.

Best of all, your bargain-hunting can be done online. Don't know where to start? Here are a few pointers...

1. A smart, structured skirt. The pastel blue one above is now £55 at Whistles and is a style that you can play down with a white tee or dress up with wedge sandals.

2. A tailored shirt. You may have a million in your wardrobe already, you may hate how formal they feel - but a really good shirt is a total game changer in the office.

3. A not-too-short, sleeveless shift dress. Bare arms are big this season so get them out and team your all-destinations dress with a kooky pair of flats and a blazer. The laser-cut navy style above is now down to £20 at Topshop.

Take a look through this shopping guide and click to buy whatever takes your fancy.
