Brilliant workwear ideas for every office dresscode

Though it’s likely been a few years since most of us attended school (let’s not count them out, eh?), September still serves as a great opportunity to start afresh.

Casual? Super corporate? Somewhere in between? We’ve got back to work outfits for every office

With the new fashion season upon us and the weather beginning to turn, it’s the ideal time to review your wardrobe and, more importantly, revamp your workwear. Especially with so many great new looks dropping into store!

Naturally, office dressing can be tricky, and the dress code often varies from place to place. So to help everyone get ahead of the new season, we’ve broken down a few workwear trends that’ll suit all manners of office environment.

Casual? Super corporate? Somewhere in between? We’ve got back to work outfits for everybody.

SUPER SMART

If your office adheres to a super smart or corporate dress code, it can sometimes feel like there’s no room for experimentation. Try these workwear trends to mix it up without causing a stir…

Reverse Monochrome

If you can’t stray far from the black, grey and white palette, try flipping things. Look for tailored trousers in light grey or stone, and pair with a smart black shirt or blouse.

Smart Coats

Don’t let your coat be the one item that lets down your workwear. This smart checked coat from the George autumn collection is perfect for keeping you warm and well groomed.

Longline Shirts

Mix up up your workwear shapes by teaming a longline shirt (like this one from George) with skinny or pencil shaped trousers. Add a blazer, and you’ve got a very modern take on corporate style.

SMART-CASUAL

If your office dress code offers some give and take, try adding trend-led elements to your workwear with these great style tips...

Cold Shoulder Styles

Break up an office-ready knit with cold shoulder details. Team with smart trousers, heels or brogues, and you’ll be on point from head to toe. This striped knit from George is ideal.

Classic Shirtdresses

Easy to wear and always smart, shirt dresses are ideal for those mornings when you just don’t have time to rummage for separates. Slip it on, button up and go. We love this floral number from George.

Fashion Trainers

Not into heels? Embrace the fashion trainers trend by teaming a smart pair with tailored trousers. Darker colours work best,and be sure to keep them looking pristine.

CASUAL

If your office has a relaxed vibe when it comes to dress code (lucky you!), try these great ways to still look ‘put together’.

Dungarees

Team dungarees with a roll neck for instant office style with a fun, fashionable twist.

Prints

Make the most of a flexible dress code by having fun with prints. Team one statement piece with neutrals to really nail it for work.

Pops of Colour

Brighten things up by teaming neutral colours with pops of bright autumnal shades. Red, burgundy, orange and emerald green are all good places to start.
