Back-to-work style essentials

Going back to work this September? Stay chic and comfy whether in the office or at home with these workwear must-haves.

Style

There’s a fine balance between looking professional, comfortable and stylish. Depending on the uniform rules in your workplace, it’s easy to become stressed over your workwear looks, which is why it’s vital to create a set of essentials that you can turn to whenever the going gets tough (AKA when you accidentally hit dismiss instead of snooze and oversleep by half an hour). These wardrobe staples should be able to pair with almost any workwear outfit and give you the confidence of familiarity when you want to try something new.

The office

A monochrome trouser suit will always be a classic. Make it less stuffy by going for oversized tailoring.

The day off

For casual chic, you can’t go wrong with mom jeans, white tee & an oversized neutral toned blazer.

The meeting

A good blazer can be thrown on over a dress, jumpsuit or shirt and trousers, while a pair of nude heels (we love Kahmune’s diverse range of tones) will go with everything. Don’t forget a go-to bag for your tech accessories, notepad and emergency snack, as well as an elegant watch or jewellery piece to tie the look together.
