Tackle the 9-to-9 dress code today. Theses are our favourite outfits for the office and dinner thereafter, an affair we indulge in almost every day. With this guide, you'll be looking fab from Monday to Friday in the likes of Theory, Herve Leger, and Sonia Rykiel, Have a look!
The 9-to-9 dress code is what we probably follow
most of the time. You would think that we have endless options to tackle that
situation now but the fact of the matter is that these options are inevitably
just not enough. It’s easy to shirt up with any smart blouse on a daily basis,
instead shirt up with a shirtdress. Pick an elegant Theory number in airy silk
and breeze through casual meetings till dinner while keeping cool.
Put a new spin on the power suit the Herve Leger way. This black jacket and skirt power suit combo will have you boardroom
ready in an instant. While black is universally figure-friendly and easy-to-match,
this Herve Leger suit has interesting panels and textures that make the whole
outfit pop. The skirt is cut to a perfect office-friendly length while the
jacket has an all-flattering peplum effect – and in Herve Leger’s signature bandage
knit no less.
Theory has been great at churning out
easy-to-wear dresses, which have been knockouts in both the office and on
weekends. This time, we look to their separates: a white on white combo that is
fashionably suited for the office and a dinner appointment thereafter. Match
this with an inner slip top in white and throw on some blacks for a
ridiculously sharp and smart look. Perfect for creatives in the office who are
going for a stylish semi-formal look.
Like tweed that has interweaving
intricacies, a tressage knit has yarns that plait ornately with each other.
Here, Sonia Rykiel has made this beautiful fabric into a gorgeous black jacket.
The texture is rich, the fabric is light, and the silhouette is immensely cosy
when worn. This jacket works as a great cover-up for cold interiors or you
could easily throw it on your shoulders for a quick run to a meeting. Outside
of the office, this could even be worked with jeans on cooler weekends.
What’s that one workday staple you can’t
live without? Besides the white blouse and black skirt or pants, chances are it
is the sheath dress, a body-skimming dress that hugs all the right curves. This
Sonia Rykiel version comes in a jersey knit fabric that is soft to the touch
and drapes well. The simple colour-blocked panels are just what you need to
break that little black dress routine. Accessorise with a little bit of gold
and we’re sure your usual workday will be just that more interesting.
