The traditional office suit has been reimagined for today, taking into account our need for comfort and style. After spending much of last year at home, mostly in easygoing lounge sets, the idea of reverting back to stiff workwear simply feels outdated. Instead, slouchier yet still put-together pieces are on the rise, and designers have gotten creative with the separates that make up the universally appealing work suit.
As you contemplate an eventual return to the office, or maybe your employer has already adopted the hybrid work model, building a work wardrobe that meets high sartorial standards without sacrificing comfort is paramount. From blazer dresses to tailored suit vests, there isn’t a shortage of pieces available to help you achieve a professional look that packs easy elegance and comfort.
We’re here to create a new state of mind – one where the traditional work staple has gotten a makeover, courtesy of some ultrachic street style. Read on for a how-to in looking like a boss, without even trying.
