These business styles from the 12/2017 issue of BurdaStyle magazine achieve the impossible: They are incredibly dynamic in a subtle way, while keeping us comfortable in cool shades of grey, soft rosé and sophisticated caramel.


The classic coat gets remastered! The storm flap, pocket flaps and tabs at the sleeve hems have the look of a trench coat, though the contrast piping trim along the edges, an elastic casing at the waistline and the double layer collar features are fantastic details that draw attention.


Do you find fine knit pullovers boring? Then let us introduce you to this new look with the raglan sleeves and sewn-in flounces that swing to inspire you. The binding at the neck holds the shape in place and it is also wonderfully warm.


Here’s the choice to shape your dream figure. The slightly flared toward the hem dress with the narrow waistline and elongated neckline is a showstopper. On cooler days, wear it over a thin turtleneck – looking best to pull one color that is within the main print.


Satin and an incredibly comfortable fit are just right for those long work days that require pure ease. Waist pleats, a wide waistband and slant front pockets are stunning and complete these pants.


This beautifully modern blouse includes pleats at the collar, gathered sleeves and delicate golden buttons. The sewn-on petersham trim bow is an optional accessory for the finishing touch.


This French jacket style is truly a must-have – and one that you can reach for in many seasons. Wear it with dresses and narrow skirts for an added elegance. Topstitched petersham and piping trim on pocket flaps make it a style that works in the office as well as a cool fashion change up with jeans.


An absolutely great choice for the office with a stylish twist: The narrow-fit 7/8 trousers with the button fly feature narrow flounces at the hem. For a streamlined look, you could naturally sew this style without them.
