OUT OF OFFICE
Nine-to-five classics break free
Call it a reaction to the ever-relaxing office dress codes, but the inclination to elevate our off-duty attire is creeping in. The smart suiting that once solely sat desk side has broken free of its career separates connotations, pencil skirts have gained wiggle room, and tweed, houndstooth and banker stripes have shed their sense of strictness. Blurring the lines between corporate and wardrobe classic, designers are putting their own spin on the new out-of-office essentials. You’ll find an extra pocket added to the clean lines of a slim skirt, a playful cherry crest stamped onto a tailored jacket, or a commuter-classic trench coat cast in printed snakeskin. Take matters into your own hands and build on boardroom favourites with sequins or a pair of mesmerising metallic boots and you’ll be mastering the high-low mix like a boss in no time.
