After several months of working from home, many of us are slowly (and safely) returning to the office. PJS bottoms are no longer acceptable and yes, Zoom call dressing is over, too.
And our forgotten work wardrobe is in desperate need of an overhaul. But don’t fret! Here are 5 pieces to help you ease back to your 9-5 ensemble – as well as taking your look to the next level. From WFH To BTN (Back-To-Normal).
The Workin’ Shirt
We all love a multi-tasker and a white button-down is just that. Opt for a relaxed fit for office-cool vibes and comfort. Match it with pencil skirts, straight leg trousers, or denim – depending on your workplace’s dress code. It’s the mature sister of the white tee.
Totême $310 at Net-a-Porter
You really didn’t think we’d forget this one. A blazer requires zero effort from your side, yet it pulls together any outfit. Go for a boxy fit to elevate your look, which is also great for layering when the temperatures drop. After-work dinner? Simply throw on a slip dress underneath. Easy peasy.
MM6 Maison Margiela $820 at Mytheresa
Again, depending on your workplace’s dress-code, pick knee-length shorts and bermudas ( paired with matching blazer), or straight leg wool trousers. You can also go for toned-down, tapered or wide-leg alterations. While the temperatures are still warm, add a wrap-around heeled sandal and tie it around your ankles, over the trousers. Runway, or workplace? One and the same.
Frankie Shop $286 at Browns
The Midi Skirt
Float around in the office with ease! If you want to switch up your look, the midi skirt is an appropriate work-wear situation. Leather is big right now, so why not pick a midi skirt a buttery soft iteration and bag extra style points? Adjoin it with kitten heels in the last days of summer, then knee-high boots come winter.
Fendi $1,156 at Matches Fashion
Sunglasses, phone, laptop, lipstick. The sac that can fit it all. In order to find everything, pick a bag with more compartments – or purchase organizers. Our lunch money? It’s on The Row’s ‘Lunchbag’ – as the ultimate investment.
The Row $1,990 at Net-a-Porter
A work wardrobe isn’t complete until you have the perfect loafers. And we mean Gucci, obviously. Shop the traditional, closed version here.
Gucci Princetown Leather Slipper $1,010
The Statement Ring
If you’re in a creative role, free reign! If you have a stricter dress-code, pick dainty pieces to radiate “I’m here to work” vibes.
