Back To Work: The Styles To Wear Now
More than ever, we need our wardrobe to work hard for us — opting for classic pieces that offer uncompromising comfort and style. From smart yet relaxed tailoring to dresses to wear all weekend, discover our guide on what to wear whilst working now — we’re talking true wardrobe heroes that will be an ally for seasons to come.
The It Knits
Cooler weather heralds the arrival of the cardigan — our favourite trans-seasonal piece that can be shrugged on as an extra layer under suiting as well as over T-shirts for those work-from-home days. Simple, snug cashmeres which feel like a luxe upgrade to your everyday working look, while cropped or belted silhouettes and sea-blue hues offer a fresh alternative to the classic. So cosy, you’ll be reaching for them at the weekend, too.
The must-have midi
Nothing gives a sense of sartorial polish quite like a painterly print dress — especially when it’s an easy-wearing piece that requires little to no styling. From polka dots to graphic botanicals and equestrian prints that are at once both timeless yet modern, these elegant dresses are as effortless when worn with ankle boots as a pair of heels for a post-work dinner date.
The contemporary tailoring
Tailoring is a forever fail-safe when it comes to working wardrobes, but this season’s best pieces are those that combine sharp silhouettes with a softer slouch to imbue a sense of business ease. Opt for looser proportions on blazers or overshirt jackets, paired with wider trousers for a smarter take on pyjama dressing. The result? Fuss-free office style from the comfort of your own home.
Best Foot Forward
A refined ankle boot is the uncomplicated finish any work-worthy look needs this season, and a lace-up style gives the feeling of a hiker boot but with a little more finesse. The military-style Asha to the chunky-soled Amber which are as ideal for weekend walks as for work. And of course, our best-selling Dahlia, which in an array of earthy shades promise to put a spring in your autumn step.
