How to Revamp Your Wardrobe for the Office

There’s hope on the horizon for everyday life returning, including going back to the office. How much of your usual office attire have you worn this past year? While there’s no shame in wearing loungewear, it might be time to start thinking about your work wardrobe. Here are some tips on how you can re-enter your office feeling confident and comfortable.

Comfortable Staples

Let’s start by focusing on the basics. What kind of clothing will you need to be wearing every day? Of course, this will differ slightly depending on the dress code of your office. You want to have a few pieces that act as a reliable foundation for your outfits. Women’s tops in neutral colours, smart skirts, and reliable shoes. You should be able to build from these to create looks for yourself. Also, comfort is key.


Focus on the fabrics in your office wardrobe. While colours and cuts are, of course, important, you need to be picky about what your clothes are made out of. You’ll be wearing these clothes for so much of your day so you want to make sure they’re breathable. When you get the clothes, sit down and see how they feel. How easily can you move in them? It’s also important to remember the seasons, fabrics that are suitable in winter will be far too warm in the summer.

Go Timeless

Speaking of seasons, you may be tempted to revamp your wardrobe with whatever is on-trend at the moment. However, this is not a good move in the long-term. Fast fashion causes so much damage to the environment. You should invest in items that will last rather than fleetingly appear trendy. There are timeless pieces you can easily incorporate into your office wardrobe. These include a white blouse, black trousers, and a trusty blazer.

Distinct Style

You’ve got your foundation set, your fabrics sorted, and you’re trying to avoid fast fashion. What’s the finishing touch? You. Yes, your working wardrobe needs to be professional but that doesn’t mean you can’t inject your personality into it. Buy blouses in your favourite prints, pick pieces that are your favourite colours and experiment with patterns. If you tell yourself you’re pulling something off, then well done – you’re pulling it off.

When revamping your office wardrobe, make sure it’s filled with versatile, comfy, items. Alongside clothes that make you feel confident. Do you have any tips for putting together a working wardrobe?
