Bailey Bow Jumper Ivory – £65

This tweed crop jacket is a favourite here in the YCB team and bound to sell out quickly. Taking inspiration from Emily in Paris and other French series, this piece is the definition of chic. Though it may be a little pricier than the other items, this jacket will last you all year round for seasons to come. Make this piece a staple in your capsule wardrobe and be the go-to fashionista in your office. 

Fiori Embroidered Shirt Dress Black – £90

Is there anything more perfect than a great go-to dress that is suitable for both work and the weekend? This flowery shirt dress means business, during the week that is. Its midi length design means it’s perfect for the office, whilst the flowery pattern paired down with trainers or heeled boots means it’s versatile for the weekend or after-work drinks.

Is there anything more French than your outfit being ready for the part in any occasion?
