A New Take on Classic Shirts

There’s nothing like a classic shirt to get your set for a polished workday. These button-downs carry the smart casual look we need for a nine-to-five without sacrificing comfort and style. Made from lightweight materials, they’re not only comfortable enough to wear at home but also modish enough for your office return.

Our Picks: Spruce up your return with the Silk Shirt, available in Black, Olive, and Champagne. This works best paired with tapered trousers and stands out with a lustrous sheen. Give yourself an edge with the Celeste Shirt, designed with gold piping for a fine detail that’s hard to miss. Wear it in White or Black for an easy day-to-day look. Get ready for your next executive meeting and put on the Cannes Shirt. Pair this classic with high-waist white linen trousers and delicate jewelry to finish.

Trusty and Tapered

The tapered pant is a classic work-wear outfit that exudes effortless finesse. Take on the tapered waist for a memorable return to the office. However, don’t be limited by just trusty separates. There are more ways than one to pull off this style. Pair them off with a button-down for foolproof office attire.

Our Picks: Redefine one-piece button-downs with the Odette Jumpsuit. Featuring a tapered waist with a smocked elastic back, it gives off a utilitarian look and highlights your figure all in one. You can also go for the classic Satin Cropped Pants, delicately tapered at the waist and hem. Go for a bright hue or tone it down in black — either way, you’ll get a glossy sheen you won’t get from any other pants.

Layers for Days

Putting on the good old blazer works wonders in keeping it smart and stylish. It doesn’t matter if you’re working from home or at the office — this is a staple every working woman needs. If you want to keep it comfy without losing the edge of a good blazer, put on something more simple and comfortable underneath. A true boss knows that comfort should always come first.

Our Picks: The Esmee Top easily slips on for a laid-back look. Worn alone, it’s the perfect at-home loungewear paired with relaxed pants. Layer it with a linen blazer for a distinct look highlighting the lace trim on this camisole top. You can also opt for the Classic Linen Crop with its loose fit and flattering high neckline. With the right blazer, this crop top can be more than just an at-home staple.

The Relaxed Pants

Wherever you go — be it the office or lunch out with a client — a trusty pair of relaxed pants can get you places. Not only are they comfortable to touch but also lightweight enough so you can move freely. Whether you’re on the go or always seated at your desk, the right pants will definitely go a long way in keeping you at ease.

Our Picks: What we love about the Marron Pants is its elasticated high waist. It features a wide-leg silhouette that will make moving around a total treat. Meanwhile, the Naturale Pants feature top button closures for a tailored effect. While it works to give you a structured look, it’s also very comfortable, perfect for a busy day ahead.

Work-Appropriate Dresses

Dresses are easy day outfits that people typically associate with weekends or late-night hangouts. However, there’s more to dresses than just fancy silhouettes. Case in point, shirt dresses. These throw-on-and-go numbers take inspiration from the ‘70s. With a collar and button-down front, you can never go wrong with these for the at-work or virtual meetings to come.

Our Picks: Cinched at the waist, the Marron Shirt Dress is the ultimate shirt dress. With a relaxed silhouette, it gives off workdays a laid-back facelift. Cinch your waist with the detachable belt or keep it loose if you so decide to wear it on the weekend. The Mae Linen Dress is a utilitarian must-have. Available in Nude, White, and Fawn, not only do you get functional pockets but also a tie-around belt to hug your waist. If you want something less structured, put on the Classic Shirt Dress in either Black, Olive, or Ginger. This attire moves gracefully with you and subtly highlights your figure with a tie-on belt.
