MAKE SHORT WORK OF WORKWEAR
How a natty nit can transform what you wear in the office
As workplaces relax their dress codes, many of us find ourselves caught in the awkward hinterland between the formality of a full suit-and-tie look, and kicking back, casual style, like we would at the weekend. But I think I’ve found a foolproof look that embraces the way workwear is now reflecting our modern wardrobes while still meaning business. Whether you’ve picked a slim suit or a sharp blazer, by swapping the shirt for a fine merino knit, it softens the tailoring just enough to strike the balance perfectly. Pick a knitted polo, crew neck or roll neck as they have an air of authority, and choose smart leather accessories with softer shapes to pull the look together.
