Deciding what to wear in the morning can be painful at the best of times, let alone if you’ve spent the past two years in leggings. The key to a successful approach to workwear is to have a capsule of smart, but comfortable, pieces that are simple enough to be mixed and matched and restyled in lots of different ways. You want to focus on ease too— shirts that won’t need to go to the dry cleaners each time you wear them and loose tailoring that looks put together, but not too restrictive.
Below we have listed 10 items that will make getting dressed for the office a little easier, from a beautifully tailored blazer to a belted wrap coat to wide-leg trousers with a loose fit. It’s also important to pay close attention to the accessories. You’ll want a smart handbag big enough to carry your laptop (they look so much better than a scruffy tote bag), a trusty pair of loafers, an elegant belt and perhaps some subtle gold jewellery to finish off any outfit.
