The ASOS 2011 Spring Collection offers a fresh lookbook of ensembles that play with the idea of turning officewear on its head. Vests without shirts? Sneakers without socks? Handkerchiefs tied casually around the neck? Is this the anarchy of office attire? No, no, don't worry! You can still keep your pin-striped suit.
Featuring pastel suit jackets and matching shorts, the ASOS 2011 Spring Collection is more suited towards the hip graphic designer or photographer rather than a financial consultant. If this is meant for everyday workwear, I can only imagine what one would wear for casual Friday.
