Office dress code
A fashion meeting with distinct business style
You don’t necessarily need to wear trousers to achieve a convincing business look: more feminine styles can be just as persuasive.
Dress codes vary greatly according to industry and employer, ranging from very formal to casual business chic, but you’re unlikely to go wrong in a suit, trouser suit, elegant blouse or knee-length skirt in subtle shades. Simple, closed-toe heels, discreet jewellery and understated makeup round off this formal look.
Smarter outfits can always be played down by choosing suits with a more casual fit, skirts with a playful finish, blouses with a vibrant colour scheme, or even patterned, decorative heels. In most office environments, plain, dark jeans with a jacket or a chic blouse have also long been acceptable.
And when it comes to shoes, there’s a wide range of options: court shoes with various heel heights, ballerina pumps, loafers, lace-ups, ankle boots or simple sneakers in high-quality materials are all perfectly suitable for the office, giving your business look a stylish upgrade.
Even for the most formal office outfits, you have many possible combinations to choose from.
Not forgetting our most important styling tip: Pay attention to high-quality materials, elegant cuts and appropriate lengths.
