Your office style guide: five essentials for the 9-5 life

With lockdowns coming to an end, offices reopening, and normal life resuming, we thought it would be the perfect time to look at great looks you can wear as you return to work.

So much of life revolves around appearance and nailing the perfect look can give you an extra footing on the promotional ladder.

We’ve got a variety of looks covered, from classic blazers to skirts and office-ready pants.


Strictly Business Double-Breasted Blazer Vest


It’s all in the name: this “strictly business” double-breasted blazer/vest tells the workplace you’re serious about the 9-5 life.

Have it hug your frame in S, M or L and add a chunky belt to accentuate the look. If you prefer to wear it open, that’s perfectly fine too.

Pair it with a demure dress, or a pants-top combo. If you’re looking for a more traditional blazer, on the other hand, consider our “next level” oversized offering.

Shop the strictly business look from our store today.


Suit Yourself Double-Breasted Boyfriend Blazer


Our double-breastest “boyfriend blazer” is a sure-fire winner and one of our best-sellers. It’s available in a chic, merlot color that goes perfectly with black underneath, and it can be dressed up in heels or dressed down in sneakers.

It comes with a notched lapel collar, a lightly padded shoulder, stunning tortoise buttons and it can be bought in three sizes.

Crossing the Line Cropped Plaid Belted Pants


Work in a creative space like advertising or digital media? You’ll love these plaid belted pants, which are suitably boho but undeniably chic at the same time. They can be dressed up with a slim-fitting turtleneck or paired with a relaxed tee.

Available in olive or mocha, they sport an elastic waist for a comfortable fit and a removable tie belt that can be worn as you see fit.

The cropped length means you can accentuate the shoes you opt for: consider heeled boots for that sophisticated office look.

Pinstripe Jungle Striped Pleated Pants


Sticking with the pants theme, these pinstripe pants are another great option for people in the creative space. If you want the “pin” to be very noticeable, go for the navy option, or if you want it to be less prominent, opt for beige.

Both offer up a relaxed fit for those long days behind a desk, while the cropped tapered leg is the last word in modern style. The belt hoops and elastic-back waist round off a stylish package that never gets tiresome to wear.

Pair them with chunky sneakers in a relaxed environment or go dressy with heeled boots should the occasion call for it. As ever, we love garments that are aesthetically pleasing but also versatile.

Leading Edge Belted Striped Paperbag Skirt


A classic skirt never goes out of fashion. This is a popular high-waisted offering that gives you an A-line silhouette alongside black and taupe stripes. It’s very flattering on the figure and very comfortable to wear at a desk: all thanks to the elastic waist and removable D-ring belt. Designed in Los Angeles and made from 100% cotton, this is one for those days sat at the board meeting table.
