Eva Chen's Workwear Capsule Is Actually Perfect for Every Single Office

Followers of Eva Chen will know that she is posting outfit selfies taken in the stairwell of Facebook's New York office as frequently as her signature #EvaChenPose snapped in the back of a taxi. One of her resolutions for 2019 was to wear things other than mom jeans, and four outfits in, we're already loving her approach to workwear this year. She is sticking to classic office-appropriate items, rotating cashmere jumpers, trousers and shirts that are all in a neutral colour palette. Eva stops these looks from feeling too corporate, however, by adding slight twists: When you look closely, you'll notice her smart black trousers are actually made with croc-effect leather.

Eva initially gained her huge following on Instagram for posting pictures of her shoes and handbags every day, and so it'll be no surprise that the accessories are the focus of these workwear looks. Eva invests in classics—below she is wearing timeless pieces by Hermès, Chanel and Céline. Keep scrolling to see her four workwear looks we want to copy this year.

1. Velvet Dress + Dr. Martens
