How to dress for work

ARE DRESSES WORK APPROPRIATE?

Dresses are the perfect option for women's workwear. A tailored blazer dress is a lovely option for work, and transitions effortless for after work drinks. If shorter hemlines are best for your silhouette, ensure that your dress length ends just above the knee, not any shorter. 

Tweed and textured shift dresses is another shape which is a chic workwear option. This style of fabric is also ideal for cool-weather dressing.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED WOMEN'S BUSINESS ATTIRE?

Women's business attire can vary greatly in terms of formality between workplaces. Follow these easy styling tips to ensure you are workplace appropriate. 

A tailored suit jacket and pants is a classic, business formal option. There are styles to suit everyone, from on-trend bouclé checks to wide leg wool blend pants which are perfect for the winter months. Not wanting to suit-up everyday of the week? Mix and match your jacket and pants with different pieces other days of the week. 

If a suit is too formal, opt for tailored pants and a collared shirt or soft blouse for a relaxed workwear outfit.

ARE SKINNY PANTS WORK APPROPRIATE?

Work pants should be tapered rather than a skinny fit. Opt for a slim tailored trouser such as the Grace Pant for a flattering pant choice for work. Another slim leg style which suits all shapes if our high-waisted Georgia Pants.

WHAT TYPE OF WORK TOPS ARE GOOD FOR THE OFFICE?

Blouses, shirts, camisoles and tank tops are perfect options for the office. For more formal workplaces, choose tops that cover your shoulders. For a more casual workplace, a silk collared shirt silhouette can look effortless and chic under a tailored jacket and coat. 

CAN YOU WEAR A SWEATER TO WORK?

Sweaters and knitwear can be a professional option for work when worn in the right way. For a polished look, ensure your sweater is void of pulls and holes and team it with a feminine pencil skirt and ankle boots. Prefer wearing pants? Tuck it into your favourite pair of trousers, pull on a tailored coat or trench over the top and you're set.
