Tips To Wear Your New Workwear Conundrums And How Can You Solve Them!

Previous generations had it easy when it came to dressing for work. If you picked a suit that fits and kept your shirt and tie sober, you’d be unlikely to put a foot wrong. Yes, it was restrictive. But at least everyone knew where they stood.

The revolution against the dress code has unyoked us from style servitude but, with right and wrong now less clearly distinguished, it’s easier to take a sartorial stumble. Can you wear trainers but still look like you mean business? Is there any way to wear jeans at your desk without looking like an off-duty dad? Yes, and indeed yes. Just follow our map through the minefield.

The Mistake: Gym Bags & Suits

You’ve binned the briefcase for a backpack as a more modern way to cart your kit to work, but know your limits. If what’s slung over your shoulder is riddled with velcro and pockets, save it for hiking.

The Fix

backpack is office-ready if it passes a few tests: premium fabrics, muted colours, and a contemporary shape. Ideally, that means leather in black, brown or blue, with high-quality hardware and enough space for your laptop and a spare layer.

The Mistake: Misunderstanding Athleisure

Gone are the days when black Oxfords were the only option, but that doesn’t mean you can wear your running shoes to work. If they’re neon, or have seen the inside of a gym, they’re out.

The Fix

Work-worthy trainers are unfussy and, above all else, as clean as the formal kicks they’re replacing. Box-fresh canvas, leather or suede styles from the likes of Adidas, Common Projects or Axel Arigato work. The beer-stained ones you wore to last night’s gig do not.

The Mistake: Disrespecting Your Suit

What to do with that lounge suit you no longer need to wear every day? Dress it down by splitting the jacket from the trousers, of course. Fine, until a laissez-faire approach to tailoring renders it unwearable when you do actually have to dress up.

The Fix

Deploying a suit singly means the trousers and jacket wear out at different paces. Invest in some tailored wool trousers and a sprezzatura-inspired unstructured blazer, which is softer at the shoulder and more relaxed in fit. It also shrugs off wrinkles, so you needn’t stress about slinging it on the back of your desk chair.
