These Quiet Luxury Pieces Make Up the Perfect Workwear Capsule

It's easy to get into a style rut when it comes to dressing for work. Though we don't miss the days when workwear uniforms consisted of drab pencil skirts and uncomfortable court shoes, the expanse of options can sometimes feel overwhelming and leave many of us reaching for the same few looks day after day. With the new season in sight, we've taken it upon ourselves to hunt down the pieces needed to revitalise your work wardrobe and hopefully leave you with more time under the duvet and less time deciphering outfit combinations. With the help of MATCHESFASHION, we've pulled together a concise edit of workwear foundations (that will also lend themselves to your everyday wardrobe) and sleek accessories that can be combined to create fresh office looks.

As always, we aim to shop considerately, and when it comes to workwear, it's important to keep your off-the-clock style in mind to ensure you make the most of every piece in your wardrobe. Luckily, most workplaces have taken a more casual approach to dressing, which lets us borrow pieces from our everyday capsules for our office looks, such as a great pair of jeans or tailored trousers. Our edit also pays close attention to accessories like smart handbags large enough to carry your laptop, a trusty pair of sleek loafers that will work with just about anything, and some delicate jewellery to add another layer of polish to your look.
