Get dressed in style for the office

Exploring and defining your office style, not only makes your daily routine easier but also more enjoyable. Your workplace attire reveals something about who you are and how you like to present yourself, so style is more crucial than you might think.

But how should one dress for a day at the office? The choice of the right outfit may vary depending on the workplace and industry. Regardless of your profession, we aim to inspire you to help cultivate a stylish, sustainable and comfortable work style.

We provide tips on how to style the versatile white shirt, the significance of well-chosen accessories and how knitted garments can be integrated for both comfort and style. With these fundamental components, you can create your office outfit with confidence.

How to style the white shirt

A classic white shirt is a timeless favorite. Versatile and easy to pair with other pieces, this shirt effortlessly transitions from casual to formal, depending on the occasion. It serves as a canvas that can be styled according to your personal preferences, making it a must-have staple for your wardrobe. However, at times, inspiration may falter when it comes to styling it in new and interesting ways. Here are some ideas on how to wear the shirt in the office.

Classic with a twist

Opt for a white shirt with details such as ruffles, bowties, or wide sleeves. These options can be paired with tailored pants or a pencil skirt and high-heeled shoes for a feminine and sophisticated style. If you want to elevate the formality, add an elegant blazer. This concept is a winning choice for days when you want to dress up and exude confidence.

Simplify, don't complicate

In the pursuit of timeless elegance, simplicity is often the key. Keep it simple by partnering your white shirt with a pair of classic jeans for a clean and sophisticated look. However, don't let simplicity be mistaken for dullness. Make it interesting with your choice of shoes and accessories. Consider patterns, color and shape to create a visual dynamic that puts your accessories in the spotlight and enhances your personal style.

Trendy in white on white

Break away from the traditionally classic by giving your white shirt a new dimension. Explore tone-on-tone styling for a modern flair and elevate your outfit by matching your white shirt with a blazer and bottoms in light hues. For a contemporary and sophisticated look, accentuate the waist of the blazer with an eye-catching belt that enhances your silhouette. An all-white or light-toned ensemble gives you a feminine and chic expression, perfect for the summer.

Add accessories

Accessories may not always feel like a priority, but they can contribute to elevating your overall look. Enhance the white shirt with accessories such as colorful scarves, a headpiece, or stylish earrings to breathe life into the garment.

A scarf has the ability to elevate any outfit. Try styling it as a headband, a bow around a ponytail, elegantly tied around the handle of your handbag, or casually draped around your neck. Choose patterns and shades that complement your personal style, and let this simple touch be the finishing flourish that makes a statement.

The knitted sweater to the office

Soft, timeless, knitted sweaters are as cozy and comfortable as they are durable and on-trend this Spring. A knitted sweater can save you on days when you're unsure what to wear, offering nice options for variation. It easily adapts to different styles – from pairing with a skirt and tall boots to styling with denim and sneakers. It works just as well over a dress, as it does paired with a blazer and tailored pants.

Dressing in the same shades from head to toe allows you to create various elegant outfits. If you don't typically go tonal, we highly recommend it as it opens your eyes to your wardrobe in new ways. Embrace the monochromatic look by choosing a knitted sweater in the same hue as your pants or skirt. Mixing different materials and fits can create a stylish contrast, so keep that in mind when selecting garments.

During Spring, a short-sleeved knitted sweater is perfect for the workplace. For a more elevated style, pair the sweater with a high-waisted skirt and loafers. If you prefer a casual and everyday look, match it with a pair of stylish jeans and sneakers. Experiment with accessories like jewelry or a chic hat to add a personal touch.

How to style the cardigan

A cardigan is a versatile wardrobe staple – it works as both outerwear in late Summer and early Autumn, transitioning to a reliable warm layer during the cold Winter months. The cardigan is a practical and stylish piece to throw on over a top or dress when the weather cools down, without compromising on your outfit.

Create a casual, chic look by pairing a long cardigan with a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of stylish jeans. To elevate the style further, add a trendy accessory such as an elegant scarf, a statement necklace, or a hat. For a more polished appearance, wear the cardigan over a classic white shirt or blouse with tailored pants.

Styling a cardigan with a dress is a perfect combination of comfort and elegance. By experimenting with materials, such as silk and merino wool, you can create interesting contrasts that add an extra dimension.

For a dressed-up outfit that takes you from the office to after-work events, choose a fitted dress in a neutral color and pair it with a longer, looser cardigan. Complete the look with heels and elegant jewelry when it's time to head out.

Take care of your garments

Caring for your clothes is an essential part of maintaining a smart wardrobe. By providing garments with the right care and attention, not only will they remain fresh, but their lifespan will also be extended. This is particularly crucial for a professional office look, where well-maintained clothing contributes to a stylish and polished impression.

When washing a shirt use detergent without bleach and hang it to drip dry before ironing it at a recommended temperature. A well-ironed shirt looks both fresh and boosts your impression.

When caring for your knitwear, try to minimize the washing of your garments as much as possible. If necessary, we recommend either handwashing or using the wool program on your washing machine. Always use a special detergent designed for wool. When it comes to drying the garments, lay them flat. This is crucial, as hanging a wet cashmere or wool garment can cause it to stretch out and lose its shape.

Our cedarwood clothing brush effectively and gently removes dirt and lint from your clothes. The wool comb helps keep your knitted garments in good condition and is used to brush away pilling on fluffy items. Clothing care is the key to preserving and extending the life of your favorite pieces.
