There’s no easy answer to the lingering daily question: what to wear to the office? But there are several smart tricks to try when shopping for the best office clothes for women.
If you’re planning to embark on a workwear-friendly wardrobe overhaul, shirting is a solid starting point. Look to soft materials to ease your way back into something resembling desk-side polish – we love styles from With Nothing Underneath and Simone Rocha – and for those of us who are ready to embrace some form of structure, then a trusty blazer looks both stylish and smart. Make The Frankie Shop your first port of call: the neutral shades are a Vogue editor favorite.

Tailoring You Can Trust
