Style in writing is all about attention to detail. Just as the right scarf or hat can make an ordinary outfit outstanding, the right embellishments will turn your writing from scruffy to slick.

If you write at work — even if it’s ‘just’ emails — you need a good style guide to keep your words looking sophisticated and up to date.
