SilkFred’s collection of affordable workwear


Online independent fashion retailer, SilkFred, has become renowned for their vast range of unique fashion pieces.

Boasting thousands of items designed for every event you can think of, they’re a go-to for women looking for something unique to wear. SilkFred also offers affordable yet unique workwear fashion to keep you comfortable and professional, yet stylish in the office. We’ve picked out three of our favourites:

The Natural Melange Long Sleeve Wrap Knit Top

As we move away from hot summer days and into the cooler autumn weather, a knitted wrap top is the perfect addition to a workplace wardrobe. This top is the epitome of comfortable office wear, completing any smart casual look with a chic and stylish finish. The rib edge detail gives it that perfect autumnal look, and the relaxed fit makes it easy to throw on during those mornings you hit snooze a few too many times.

Our favourite thing about this top is its versatility. Pair it with denim jeans in any colour for a more casual workplace look, or with a pair of flats for an easy-to-wear style that takes you from 9 until 5. If your office is a little tougher on the dress code, pair this top with dark trousers and black heels to dress it up. Outside of the workplace, you can don leather-look trousers and a pair of pointed-toe pumps to take the look into the evening for a casual date or a trip to the bar.

The Asymmetrical Halter Neck Midi Dress

The Asymmetrical Halter Neck Midi Dress is a sleek, stylish option for any business woman taking on the big city. The navy blue colour lends itself to most office dress codes, with a chic polka dot design which inject a bit of fun into the design. If the polka dots weren’t enough, the halter neck, asymmetric hemline and fitted waist provide a unique silhouette that suits most body types.

Pair the dress with black or white heels for a sophisticated office look to get you through even the most tedious of meetings, or add with strappy stilettos and bold, colourful earrings for an evening look that’s ideal for a date night or a work event.

The Black Wrap Frill Mini Dress

The little black dress should be a staple in any woman’s work wardrobe, but we’re particular fans of this Black Wrap Frill Mini Dress from SilkFred. This simple, long-sleeved design is perfect for any season – it can be paired with tights and a jacket during the cooler months, or you can opt to go bare-legged with a pair of strappy sandals during the summer months! The loose fit and polyester material lend themselves to keeping you cool, even when the sun is out.

For the office, pair the dress with black heeled pumps and break out your best power walk, or switch them for nude strappy heels for a more casual everyday office look.

Too often, we find ourselves wearing the same outfits to the office every day, but with a few statement pieces in your wardrobe, you can inject a bit of fun and style into the workday. Which is your favourite?
