Mariya's Workwear Essentials

Our #AspinalatWork campaign spotlights some of our favourite pieces for working professionals. For the first feature in this series we're speaking to the Aspinal's always immaculate Creative Director, Mariya Dykalo, who shares her work wardrobe staple pieces.

"I love glamourous things, but being a working mum and splitting my time between the country and city I don't always have the opportunity to be glamourous every day. By keeping a few essential pieces in my wardrobe I can always look my best even when I don't feel it."

"Dashing between our offices in London and West Sussex, my day can be very different from one day to the next, so I like to wear classic, staple pieces that can easily take me from board meeting to a bespoke appointment with a customer. I'm passionate about wearing and supporting British brands, and I've recently fallen in love with workwear pieces by Goat, a British brand synonymous with understated luxury, and its now my favourite destination for unique separates and outerwear."

A Crisp White Shirt

"Every woman needs this key piece in their wardrobe, it's so easy to pare down with jeans and trainers, or dress up with heels for after work cocktails."

The Classic Black Suit

"When it comes to suiting, there's nothing more powerful than a perfectly cut black suit. For this look, I let the tailoring the talking and keep my jewellery classic and minimalistic."

The Perfect Work Bag

"The most important part of any look is accessories, it's the trick to elevating any outfit. Our Florence bag is a timeless piece and the perfect size to fit all my essentials. It can make even the simplest outfit look expensive and considered."
