‘Nail’ the look
OUTFIT ESSENTIALS - WHAT YOU’LL NEED...
How to boss your office wear
There are 3 ways to dress for the office: (1) chuck on anything that isn’t on the floor, (2) sweat over whether something goes with something else (or whether you’ve worn it too much this month), (3) effortlessly pick out your easy wear pieces which collaborate perfectly together. If you’re anything like us, you’ll prefer the latter, so here are the 4 key trends you need to get your style spot on.
The leather jacket
Our favourite go-to friend we rely on day in, day out. Again and again this jacket (be it faux leather or the real deal) has turned a good outfit into something a little bit more special. Jennifer Aniston is the queen of this leather clad look: she goes against all style colour rules and wears blue jeans, brown boots and a black leather jacket together – and always pulls it off. Why? Because like we said, a leather jacket goes with absolutely everything.
The shirt is always a saviour piece in every wardrobe, and there is always room (and need) for at least one. When you don’t know what your day in the office entails: be it a day of analytics or an impromptu business meet, this is the trusty piece that will work for every occasion. Blue, white or denim – you’re guaranteed to get noticed.
A belt can completely transform any boring outfit. And when you need to up your game in the style-promotion stakes, this is the only accessory you need. Just think less is more.
When at work, trousers always need to be comfy or they can make you grouchy and longing for home time sooner than normal. That’s why we’re obsessing over these comfy taper trousers. Smarter than jeans, but not as serious as suit trousers, there will be no doubt that they will become your season go-to again and again.
