The best way to ease yourself back into the nine-to-five after the festive season? A fresh crop of office outfits, of course. Whether seeking a statement midi, smart separates or key accessories, here are five ways to refresh your workwear wardrobe for the new year, featuring hand-picked pieces from our latest arrivals.
1. New Bloom
Make way for new-season blooms. This wrap-hem top in cobalt blue is designed with oversized florals in blush-toned hues, and pairs perfectly with a black leather-look midi to create a chic look for the office. Complement the sleek aesthetic with suede slouch boots, opting for a block heel that’ll offer round-the-clock comfort.
2. Midi Moments
There’s always room in our workwear wardrobes for a new midi dress – and especially if it comes as stylish as this. Crafted in jersey for comfortable stretch, this striking design is printed with angled stripes in teal, black and off-white, tying at the waist to create a cinched-in fit. A pair of nude-hued ankle boots and a black tote bag are all the accessories you need to complete the look.
3. Off by Heart
Enter the high-fashion heart print. Joining leopard, polka dots and stars, the graphic icon is making a cool comeback this season, having shaken off its juvenile reputation for something a little more refined. Find it on this pussy-bow blouse in statement-making red, tucking it into a pair of black kick-flare trousers for professional polish. To go straight from desk to dinner, wear with vintage-inspired court shoes.
4. Shirt Tales
The shirt dress is a tried-and-tested wardrobe favourite, whether worn to the office or styled for weekend diary dates. Bring it into your style rotation with a mid-length number in classic navy, energised with abstract red stripes and cinched at the waist with a self-tie sash – perfect for creating a form-flattering fit. Finish the look with pointed ankle boots and a leather satchel bag in a bold scarlet hue.
5. Power Stripes
How to make jersey basics feel more elevated for the office? Just add stripes. Printed with variegated lines in a selection of striking hues, this soft-touch top is stylish as it is comfortable, and features a flattering twist detail and asymmetric hemline for a fashion-forward feel. We like it best with a pair of tailored trousers and leg-lengthening ankle boots.
