Style Advisor: The New Rules Of Workwear

Style Advisor: The New Rules Of Workwear

2020 was the year that changed our workwear wardrobe forever. Much as our work and home lives merged at the kitchen table, so did our outfits. But with nearly a year under our belts sans commute, we’re looking to inject a little more style back into our daily lives. From Prada leggings to Gucci slippers and Ganni co-ords, these four looks will instantly revive your working week.


Saint Laurent Double Breasted Blazer

THE NEW SMART/CASUAL

Ever wondered what smart/casual actually means? It turns out the term was coined about 30 years too early, instead it should have been reserved for the very specific way of dressing that’s emerged in the past 12 months. The key? Pair sleek, black leggings with oversized pieces; from a classic white shirt to a double-breasted blazer. For the perfect finishing touch, slip into Gucci’s soft leather slippers.

THE CO-ORD

There’s something about a matching set that can make you feel a million times more pulled together – even if both of those items are strictly loungewear. To dress things up a touch for those incessant Zoom calls, throw on an oversized blazer in soft, tonal shades. Top tip? Size up. Bigger is definitely better here.

THE STATEMENT KNIT

For those who crave the comfort of loungewear but with a little more polish, allow us to introduce you to the standout knit. With bold colour blocking and oversized pearl buttons, this cardi from Olivia Rubin feels anything but twee, especially when teamed with cool black joggers. Once reserved for the poolside, for 2021 sliders have been repurposed as the ‘house shoe’. Just add thick, white tennis socks for extra warmth (and style kudos).

DRESS FROM THE TOP

There’s a knack to nailing the perfect video call outfit, and that’s all about OTT details up top. BCE (big collar energy) really comes into play here and we love Ganni’s poplin offering. Pair with a chunky headband, slouchy trousers and layer over a bright knit cardi for cooler days.
