I love the idea of a uniform – a streamlined yet interesting mix of items that you both look and feel good in and can throw on in a moment…that is truly the work wardrobe dream to me. Often my go-to look for work is a dress with some sort of jacket, but on my recent trip to Asia I felt most comfortable in suiting separates with a patterned top underneath. Here are a few snapshots from my time in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
