Discover our range of casual skirts, jackets, tops and more that you can wear confidently inside and outside the office.

If the office dress code is formal, do I need to wear a work dress?

No, formal attire doesn’t necessarily mean you must wear a formal office dress. Instead of a work dress, you can try out different styles that make you feel more comfortable and give you more options that suit the level of formality. From pantsuits to tailored trousers and silk skirts, it’s perfectly acceptable to experiment with your sartorial choices until you discover the perfect pieces that suit your sense of style.

What workwear should every woman invest in?

Every woman's workwear wardrobe must have foundational staples for rotation with other versatile pieces. For example, having one or two work jackets or blazers that you can mix and match with your worktops is ideal. Pair it with a matching suit pant or staple black pant to complete your everyday look.

A tailored women’s work dress in an easy-to-pair, no-fuss option that can be dressed up or down with a quick change of shoes. Choose a fitted pencil silhouette with an asymmetric neckline and a shirt dress for relaxed office days, or invest in a floaty floral work dress to see you through the summer months.

Looking to make a statement in a silhouette that will take you from the boardroom to a fancy dinner party? An elegant pleated women’s work dress adds a feminine twist to your wardrobe, while the geometric print delivers a contemporary appeal ideal for achieving a refined and sleek look.

If you're looking for other essential pieces, you should consider investing in one of our elegant suit sets. They're classy and stylish, and can be worn together, separately and over a work dress. Dress it up or down to suit your preferences.

What is the difference between casual wear and formal wear in the office?

Formal wear usually features tailored cuts and styles that require proper fitting to look neat, classic and presentable, while casual wear is all about comfortability and may feature more relaxed looks. Colour can also affect the formality of an ensemble, so if you’re unsure, select a neutral-tone or monochrome silhouette.

The fabric used for casual wear is often more focused on comfort and breathability. On the other hand, formal wear is usually made with dressier, more luxurious materials such as silk or other slinky, soft-to-the-touch textiles that can hold their shape without crumpling or creasing.
