September means back to school, and for the lucky ones who managed to get away for the summer, back to the office too. When you've already got an early start and the commute to contend with, the last thing you want to have think about is what you're going to wear, and if that same reliable skirt and blouse don't feel as inspiring as they used to, We've got good news. There's new workwear in town, courtesy of Reiss, and it's about to refresh the way you think about dressing for the office.
Reiss’ latest (and most vibrant) collection to date is “On Duty", a move away from the brand's recognisable neutral tones–think bold pops of colour and heritage prints, but with the same sharp tailoring and perfect-fit silhouettes. And while there are plenty of the structured blazers and dresses we know and love from Reiss, there's also knitted layers, winter coats and occasionwear too, to make sure you're covered for the 9 to 5 and beyond.

The suit might be easiest way to meet a strict office dress code, but it's gotten a bad rep as of late. Ill-fitting suits in somber colours have made suits feel stuffy and uniform, but thankfully there are plenty of sharp tailoring options in bold colours that redefine the term "power dressing".
The colour! The cut! There's nothing not to love about this vintage looking suit.
As soon as we log off, after-work plans are back on the agenda, and if you don't have time for a rushed deskside change, you'll need an outfit that works for evening too. Enter the desk-to-dinner dress. Styles that toe the line between professional and party, and will rise to the occasion, whatever your plans.
And of course, a knit dress too. Nothing says comfortable like cashmere, and knit dresses with knee-high boots are a winning formula we can rely on for the rest of the year.
A good coat is the finishing touch that can elevate an outfit, and of all of the impressive coat trends we've already seen this year, it's clear this season is the time to go big or go home. The coat you buy now will serve you for years to come, making this investment purchase one of the most important things in your wardrobe.
