THE 9-5 REFRESH

The office must-haves you need now

The 9-5 refresh

While we’d all admittedly rather be lying in the sun, out of office on, Aperol spritz in hand… the reality is that unfortunately summer’s finally coming to its end, and that mountain of paperwork on your desk isn’t going to sort itself.

But, heading back to work needn’t be boring. In fact, it’s the perfect time to re-visit your workwear wardrobe and give your office style a refresh. With the help of a few key pieces, the transition back to 9-5 can be effortless.

Handle it

Carry your essentials in style with a handy satchel. Practical, versatile and inherently chic, it makes light work of your commute. With plenty of compartments to stash all your office must-haves from your laptop to make-up bag, our collection of satchels gives the timeless accessory a fresh update.

The power skirt

Dress the part with a sleek pencil skirt. Flattering and eternally stylish, it’s the perfect piece for styling up with a crisp white shirt. Or give it a sophisticated twist for after-hours drinks with a pair of heels. You’ll feel ready to face the world as soon as you slip it on.

On point

Lengthy commute, back-to-back meetings, lunch on the run… you’re going to need a great pair of fashion flats to keep you on your toes throughout the day. Our edit has something to suit all eventualities and keep you in style and comfort, whatever your work diary may have in mind.

Button up

Whether worn with trousers or paired with skirts, a crisp shirt deserves center stage in your workwear wardrobe. From classic white to wear-forever stripes or this season’s key styling detail - the statement sleeve. Find the shirt you need to anchor your office outfits with our must-have pieces.
