I’ve got a secret, and something tells me it’s not going to make me any friends: I love getting dressed for work. Okay, so technically I decide what to wear the night before (I’m only human), but I think this enjoyment comes from the fact that at heart, I’m just a little kid who loves to dress up, and luckily I work in an environment where experimenting with style is actively encouraged.
It also helps that my personal style veers towards smart, so I’ll take any excuse to throw on a piece of tailoring, a flowy midi skirt or pair of heeled boots. While others can’t wait to get to the weekend to throw on their tracksuits and comfiest knit, I’ve always relished the satisfaction that comes with feeling polished and put together—so sue me.
But despite the fact that I work in a fashion-loving workplace, there are still plenty of practical considerations, whether it’s staying warm in a chilly office or looking presentable for a press dinner. I like to think that over the years, I’ve refined the art of speedily putting an outfit together—it all comes to down finding those winning combinations you can rely on.
Obviously there are no hard-and-fast rules for work dressing—every industry is different, and every office has its own guidelines. But as it’s always good to have a little inspiration, I thought I’d share with you some styling wisdom I’ve gathered over the years. Keep scrolling for seven outfits I’ve worn to work over the last month or so.
