Carry the chic look of 1940s film stars into your working day by teaming smart, high waisted skirts or trousers with cute little puff sleeve blouses or crisp white shirts. Make use of tailored waitcoats, jackets and coats. Finish off with smart heels, a big bag and, if you want to go the whole way, a pair of ladylike gloves.
