Office Clothes for Women: 7 Workwear Ideas That Are Smart and Stylish


There’s no easy answer to the lingering daily question: what to wear to the office? But there are several smart tricks to try when shopping for the best office clothes for women. 

If you’re planning to embark on a workwear-friendly wardrobe overhaul, shirting is a solid starting point. Look to soft materials to ease your way back into something resembling desk-side polish – we love styles from With Nothing Underneath and Simone Rocha – and for those of us who are ready to embrace some form of structure, then a trusty blazer looks both stylish and smart. Make The Frankie Shop your first port of call: the neutral shades are a Vogue editor favorite.

As for the Zoom-worthy trophy jewelry that saw us through lockdown? That can stay. After all, what better to way to make an entrance than with an eye-catching necklace? Here are Vogue’s favorite office clothes for women. 

Tailoring You Can Trust

Blazers can smarten up even the simplest of looks. Find a style that fits well on your shoulders, and ensure that the length of the hemline and sleeves are just so.
