But not to worry - creating beautiful work outfits and mastering your office style is so much easier with a little know-how from those who know best.

The perfect partner to long-sleeved layers or tailored shirting, a pinafore style dress embraces a versatile sleeveless silhouette to help you step up your suiting game. Our Harry Suiting Midi Dress is poised with a smooth silhouette, offering a sophisticated meets flirty flair courtesy of its daring v-neckline with crossover back. We love wearing ours with contrasting tops, but this piece offers versatile styling for every day of the working week.
Take styling cues from Thandi and layer over a crisp white shirt and style with pointed heels for the perfect boardroom outfit.
Never underestimate the power of a good shirt for work. A white shirt is a solid wardrobe foundation, a crisp button-up shirt is a total must-have that’s sure to come in handy no matter the work calendar.
Meet our Rhodes Pleated Poplin Shirt - smart meets stylish with this style which stays true to the classic shirt silhouette but upgraded and brought into modern trends with pleated topstitch details to reinvigorate the traditional with a flattering fit and flare silhouette.
Workwear outerwear-wise, you can’t go wrong with a trench coat. There’s a reason why trench coats have stood the test of time - easy to throw on, they instantly pull a look together.
Twists on the classic silhouette like our Fayette Three-in-One Trench Coat is worth the investment. A practical piece for work and play - this three-in-one style keeps you equipped for your commute.
Take styling inspiration from Thandi and style the trench coat as a sleeveless piece (by removing the top cropped layer) to exude utilitarian style and add an added layer of warmth for those colder commutes to work.
A relaxed-fit trouser makes almost any office outfit look effortless; and for that tailored-to-perfection look, a pleated cream, navy or black pair goes with absolutely everything. Take your desk-to-dinner wardrobes to the next level with our Harry Suiting Trousers. A clean aesthetic makes this smooth wide leg pair versatile for boardroom to drinks.
Loose-fitting tailored trousers look just as stylish with a T-shirt and sneakers for a smart casual work look or be inspired by Thandi and pair yours with your favourite knitted jumper for those working from home days.
A classic knitted jumper is truly a year-round workwear staple. Wear-with-everything jumpers are not only a failsafe office essential in the autumn months but a staple foundation for your capsule wardrobe too. When it comes to cold weather layering for work, a simple crew neck knit or roll neck sweater will do the job nicely. Looking to mix things up this season? Opt for an unexpected silhouette, like a relaxed collared style or trending knitted vest.
Perhaps the most underrated wardrobe staple of all is the classic knit vest like our Lily Mozart Knit Vest — this is a piece that has fully transformed from geek to chic.
