There was no shortage of style and imagination from our nine challengers, but there was one clear winner.
You might recall that, earlier this month, we asked nine of our favourite fashion bloggers to ditch their regular work outfits and revamp their weekday style with jackets, jumpsuits and dresses from the George range. We were hugely impressed with the versatility that Cassie, Bethanie, Gemma, Robyn, Amanda, Jade, Sherin, Elfa and Daisy brought to their new outfits, but thanks to all your votes, we have one clear winner. And that winner is… (drum roll please)… Robyn of Phases Of Robyn. Congratulations Robyn!
Twenty-one-year-old jeans addict Robyn admits she was a little terrified of giving up jeans for a week. “I own about 30 pairs in as many different shades of blue and black that you can possibly think of),” she said, “But I was up for the challenge and determined to change up my outfits a little bit more.” As the results show, Robyn was true to her word and seamlessly integrated culottes, dresses and jumpers from our range into a refreshed wardrobe that runs from cool to smart and all points in between. Her denim obsession did raise its head towards the end of the week in the shape of a denim dress but she pulls it off so well that we won’t complain.
No matter what your style or dress code, there’s something in the collection that can work for you. This crochet back ditsy dress is brilliant for a smarter work look but it transitions from day to night in a flash; just swap your navy ballet pumps for metallic gladiators or heeled wedges and a dash of maroon lipstick and you’re all set for after-work drinks.
Playsuits are equally adaptable. Pair this floral print with some pointed flats or leather brogues and a knitted cardigan or jumper for a great office look. And if you’ve got plans in the evening, change it up with block heels or gladiator sandals, a matching combo of a thin belt and clutch bag and a long chain that sits below your neckline. Comfortable, cool and incredibly stylish.
If a little more colour is your thing, this pink shift dress will brighten up your day and night and is made from a linen blend to keep you cool during the summer months. With a black blazer, open-toed pumps and a simple pendant, it’s a great office look. But change into metallic or black t-bar strappy heels, a black patterned scarf or shawl (to keep you warm if you’re staying out late), a beaded necklace or choker and a black shoulder bag or clutch and you’ve got a night-time look that combines class with a dash of fun.
