Whatever your office dress code, shift effortlessly into the new season with smart separates, from classic tailoring to relaxed suits, lightweight knits and chinos

Laid-back suiting

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 dressing

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.
