MUST HAVE: MAX MARA Pre-Fall '17 runway look

 Inspired by the glamour of film noir heroines like Joan Crawford and Lauren Bacall, it's made from sumptuous camel hair and expertly tailored for a slightly loose fit. Cinch the optional self-tie belt to define your waist, or emulate the Pre-Fall '17 runway look and drape it over the shoulders.

If your work dress code is smart and formal, then colour is the perfect way to keep outfits fresh and varied. Max Mara's 'Bugia' pencil skirt has been made in Italy from stretch-wool and is fully lined in satin.

Each panel is subtly detailed with zigzag topstitching, and it has flattering godet pleats at the back that balance the hips and sway gracefully with each step.

If your style is classic and minimal, Max Mara is the perfect go-to brand for elegant wardrobe staples. This sweater is spun from soft ribbed cotton with a slouchy turtleneck, dropped shoulders and cropped sleeves. Wear it with tailored pants when you want to look smart but feel comfortable.

Crafted in Italy, this version of Max Mara's iconic camel coat is structured and smart enough for the office, but won't feel too polished for low-key days. Hidden buttons keep the front streamlined, while the silky satin lining makes it easy to layer.
