Comfort has been king for the past couple of months, and that will have a knock on effect to the rigidness of formal office suiting. Look for loose, tailored blazers in lighter fabrics and this seasons’ must-have linen and fluid cotton midi skirts. Wide leg trousers would also make a comfy alternative to a skirt, whilst smart camisoles are a stylish swap for a fitted shirt. Formal shoes and bags will keep your look office appropriate, we love this bag with a hidden laptop pocket, perfect for those who need to navigate between working from home and being in the office.
It looks like video calls are here to stay, don't underestimate the importance of how you present yourself - hoodies and sweatpants won’t cut it long term. You might not be physically in the office but dressing appropriately is most definitely still a must. The rules? You don't need to be literally suited and booted anymore, instead look to blouses, tops and sweaters that pack a style punch from the waist up. Avoid large slogans and look for detailing on the shoulders and neckline, while graphic prints and puff sleeves are a stylish choice. The embroidery on the sleeves and neckline of this boho style blouse is perfect, plus it will look just as great for the weekend too with this denim jacket. Pair with some loose light trousers that are comfy and cool in equal measures, and you can save your pjs and bottoms for lounging around.
We might have to split our time between working from home and heading into the office, so your new work-drobe will need the flexibility of an Olympic gymnast. Co-ord trouser sets in jersey and cotton are set to become the savvy style choice. They’re loose and comfy, so they tick the stylish work from home box. Throw on a blazer or a longline cardigan and your work bag and you have an office ready outfit in a flash. What's more, you can split the co-ord for extra wardrobe mileage, these trousers would look great with an oversized shirt, and the top could be easily paired with a midi skirt for work, or shorts and jeans for the weekend.
