Office wear is undoubtedly the hardest-working area of your wardrobe. Workwear needs to balance function, style, and comfort so having pieces that are minimum fuss but maximum impact is key. Whether your dress-code is corporate or relaxed, we’ve narrowed your new season office attire down to a few key pieces.
The New Classic Shirt
Lace Mix Shirt £60 / Linen Belted Trouser £65 / Faux Leather Shopper £65
Forget what you thought about white shirts. Whilst a plain
white shirt will always be a staple, this season it’s all about reimagining the
classic in a plethora of cuts, details and fabrics. For a summery take, a lace
version is a chic way to update your 9-5 wardrobe; the unexpected fabric will
inject just the right amount of interest. There’s really no set way to style
this piece, the possibilities are endless!
The A-Line Skirt
Linen Tie Waist Skirt £60 / Draped Shirt £50 / Sofia Stripe Jacket £95
A versatile skirt in a lightweight fabric will be your
summer workwear hero piece. Made from cool and structured linen, the Layla is
ideal in warmer temperatures and its pleated style makes it smart enough for
even the most stringent of offices. Pair with a tucked in shirt to make the
most of the flattering A-line style. To add a personal flare, try a patterned
jacket or statement accessory.
The Statement Dress
Ruched Dress £65 / Leather Sandals £85 / Cara Speckle Cardigan £70
A patterned dress is a great way to instantly update your
workwear repertoire. Look for a neutral base colour in order to incorporate it
seamlessly into your current wardrobe. Minimal accessories are the go-to when
styling prints; let the dress take centre stage by wearing with a plain
cardigan or blazer and simple shoe. Dress-code frown upon sandals? A court
would work just as well.
The Cropped Trouser
Crop Flared Trousers £60 / Embroidered Shirt £55 / Sunrise Stripe Scarf £30
For Spring, incorporating a pastel shade is a great
way to freshen up a classic look. The Suki crop trousers combine two of the
season’s biggest trends; pastels and modern tailoring. A shirt, worn either
loose or tucked in, will keep the look sufficiently corporate, perfect for a
meeting or work event. A cropped trouser length is perfect for showcasing a
favourite pair of shoes – try a loafer for work and switch to a heel in the
evening for an easy desk-to-dinner transition.
