Dragging yourself back into the work wardrobe can feel like having to leave your individuality at the door. Alessandro Dell’Acqua is settling in at Rochas and produced a striking yet wearable collection that would have me positively skipping to work.Why not cut through the post-Christmas blues by vamping up your wardrobe? Forget trawling through the sales and looking like everyone else; create your own take on style classics. You can’t go wrong with our Carla skirt pattern made up in a bold fabric. You could shorten the hem and go for opaque tights or lengthen and create a strong column of colour. Make this season your season.
