Five Workwear Outfits That Will Never Fail

Workwear is not as straightforward as it once was, and gone are the days when working in an office required a suit, shirt and tie. Although some industries do still require a smart look, many companies now accept a more casual approach to workwear fashion, and dress-down Fridays are becoming more and more popular, especially with organisations that employ a young work force in creative industries such as advertising, media and marketing.

Whatever your style, there are some basic looks which can provide a modern image and which are perfect for work.

Go French

The French have long been associated with style. Investing in a French-style blazer is a very worthwhile purchase. Blazers can be worn with jeans or chinos, shirts or roll neck jumpers as well as boots or a more casual fashion trainer.

Outdoor Look

Cargo trousers are very on trend, and as well as looking good, they are also easy and comfortable to wear. In the colder months, these can be worn with zip hoodies and even a beanie if you want to complete the look.

Too Cool for School

Although it is good to look fashionable and trendy, turning up to work looking like you’ve just stepped off the catwalk every day is exhausting and expensive and not very practical. Instead, invest in some classic items such as smart high-quality jeans, stylish leather boots and some Farah shirts from, which can be mixed and matched. Make sure the jeans aren’t skinny-fit and the boots are comfortable, as you’ll be wearing them all day.

Meghan Markle recently launched a limited-edition fashion line which helps women wanting to get back into the workplace.

Denim Look

Double denim used to be unacceptable, but is now very fashionable. A smart pair of well-cut jeans, worn with a white tee-shirt or cotton shirt and a denim jacket, is the ultimate look for a creative exec wanting a cool image.


Japanese fashion has been slowly but surely making its way into our High Streets for a number of years, and their love of pockets, straps and baggy fit trousers is popular, especially amongst the younger generation.

To complete your image, invest in a puffa jacket for the winter and a smart cashmere jumper, which is perfect for a smart/casual look.
