Holly Willoughby has several go-to outfits for autumn/winter, and a patterned mini skirt with a classic white shirt might just be our favourite.
On Monday, the ITV star stepped out in a silk & Other Stories blouse with ruffle detail and a houndstooth Sandro skirt, completing her new season ensemble with one of the biggest footwear trends right now: a pair of Mary Janes.
Sharing the look to Instagram, she wrote: "Morning Monday… Today the lovely @benshephardofficial is with me. See you on @thismorning at 10am with @derrenbrown @chefphilvickery Felicity Kendal and we meet Zach to talk about how he’s protecting people with epilepsy online. #hwstyle Shirt @andotherstories Skirt @sandroparis Shoes @lkbennettlondon".
Combining style with comfort and adding instant polish to your outfits, Mary Janes have experienced something of a renaissance in recent months, with everyone from Dua Lipa to Olivia Rodrigo and Katie Holmes seen out in them.
Holly’s patent pair is from royal-favourite LK Bennett. One of several styles the British fashion label has dropped for the new season, they’re made from glossy black leather and feature a square toe, a strap over the foot with a round buckle and a small block heel. They retail for £299 and are available in a UK size 3-9.
Holly’s look is perfect to emulate for the office. Adding tights to her timeless outfit, it’s chic, practical and modest.
Like ballet flats, Mary Janes can be paired with almost anything from dresses and mini skirts to tailored trousers or even straight-leg jeans. They come in both heeled or flat designs and we love a metallic silver pair if you want to make them more party-appropriate.
