Our stylists have received so many questions about it, so it’s safe to say that returning to the workplace in person - goodbye, our good old sweatpants! - is stressing out a lot of you. The workplace dress code has changed so much in the last couple of years, it’s easy to get lost in the new unofficial rules. What’s the most needed basic pieces? Can I now wear an elevated joggers look to work? Here is everything you need to know.

 

CLASSIC CHIC

If you work in a professional office setting and have a lot of meetings with important clients, your job probably calls for a more classic style, think pencil skirts and well-ironed shirts with pretty conservative cuts and colors. But classic doesn’t need to be boring! Opt for patterned blouses, statement jewelry or nice accessories such as a bow tie. And pro-tip: always keep a jacket on hand: it hides the coffee stain from the one you spilled, this morning!

CORPORATE CASUAL

The “corpo-casual” code is a perfect hybrid between elegant and comfy. You can still look very much classy while incorporating more relaxed materials to your office wardrobe, think knitwear, corduroy or cotton. A cardigan can replace your usual jacket, and dark, classic jeans are generally not frown upon. To add a little oomph to your outfits, play with layers and add textures and colors to your style. When it comes to shoes, block heels, booties and loafers are just perfect to complete the look!

URBAN CREATIVE

This type of dress code is relatively new. There are more and more communications agencies or programming studios full of uber-creative people that want to express their style in the workplace. And that’s awesome! The most important rule here is, of course, to highlight your personality! Forget the office etiquette, ripped jeans, hoodies or even pumps are A-OK. Don't hesitate to combine your chicest pieces with your most casual ones for a fun and truly personalized style.
