Whatever your office dress code, shift effortlessly into the new season with smart separates, from classic tailoring to relaxed suits, lightweight knits and chinos
If your office dress code requires you to wear a suit, try our wool-rich Ultimate Suit. Created in a contemporary single-breasted design, added stretch will keep you looking as sharp and crease-free when wrapping up your last meeting of the day as you did first thing in the morning. Available in either black or charcoal grey in a tailored or slim fit, it looks the business teamed with a crisp white cotton shirt.
Looking for a less buttoned-up look? For a modern update on the classic suit-and-shirt combo, switch out the shirt and pair instead with a complementary sweatshirt. Autograph’s soft and breathable cotton half-zip sweatshirt comes in a choice of two colours and can also do double duty at the weekend teamed with your favourite jeans. Then, just add the finishing touch – a pair of classic leather loafers – for that first-day-of-the-new-term vibe.
Keeping it casual
You might not need to wear a suit for work, but a casual dress code shouldn’t mean scruffy. If wearing a shirt is not essential, there are some other smart-enough-for-the-office options – our cotton-rich polo shirt feels soft next to your skin, is easy to care for and has a premium look and feel. Best of all, with minimal ironing required, it gives you extra time to hit the snooze button. Team with retro-inspired pleated trousers that can be worn for work or play, and a feather and down gilet for cooler mornings.
Hybrid working has caused a shift to a more fluid way of dressing, with a less-formal work wardrobe suited to both home and office. Our padded mac is a clever all-seasons buy, perfect for layering on early morning commutes or chilly air-conditioned offices. It’s made with a responsibly sourced cotton and is a lightweight option when you’re on the move. Team with tailored trousers and tassel loafers for your new work-anywhere uniform.
