We have one simple rule for workwear: if it isn’t stylish and comfortable, you’re doing it wrong. Thankfully, most offices have relaxed their dress codes in recent years, which leaves some room to play with colours and try out new styles. Putting a personal spin on your work wardrobe is proven to boost your self-confidence and increase productivity too because it shakes up your routine and brings a fresh outlook to your day. So let the world know you mean business in these stylish and comfortable SS’18 pieces.
The beauty of a good shirt is that it can take your outfit from formal to relaxed with very little effort – all you have to do is remove the tie, open a button or two, and roll up your sleeves. This Howard Club Oxford Shirt is cut from 100% Cotton and would look great under a casual blazer with a bright chino for a creative office look, or with a slim tailored trouser for a sharper sartorial feel.
Chinos are the perfect middle ground between suit trousers and your favourite pair of jeans. These Abcott chinos are modern in style, creating a smart but relaxed silhouette and robust thanks to the cotton mix fabric, with added stretch for comfort. The washed navy shade makes a subtle but refreshing change from black or grey and can be worn with almost any colour.
For the months when it’s still too cold to only wear a shirt, but you don’t want to carry a suit jacket around, a good piece of knitwear is essential. We’ll be wearing this Miller Crew Neck Knit in the colour Zinc, with tonal chinos for a soft, clean look. On cooler days or for long commutes, we’ll wrap around a contrasting woollen scarf too.
Finally, every work wardrobe needs a good coat. This Wheaton Mac is windproof and shower resistant and looks smart and modern, without feeling too formal. The Oyster Grey colour is our personal favourite.
