Our working wardrobe might have taken a bit of a shift these last couple of years, but if you’re heading back into the office and need a little refresher on how to get the most out of your clothes, we’re taking you through the key items to tick off your essential work wardrobe checklist.
Building a capsule wardrobe dedicated specifically for your 9-5 is a great way to ensure when you’re getting dressed for the day you can effortlessly and easily create a look that makes you feel your best, so you can ultimately give your best.
Your work wardrobe will be getting a workout, they’re the pieces that you’ll be wearing day-in, day-out so you’re looking for items that are going to last the distance, this is definitely the place in your wardrobe you’ll want to go for quality over quantity.
And even though it’s not something we like to admit, due to the fact you’re likely to be wearing the same clothes around the same people each day, you might feel the urge to at least appear like you’re wearing something new from time to time.
Thankfully, that’s when a minimalist approach to style really comes into its own, as you'll easily be able to create multiple looks with the same items, and only updating your edit here and there with thoughtful new season additions.
So get your checklist ready, here are our top items for building out an essential workwear capsule wardrobe.
