Shopping selection: revisiting the officewear

07 September 2018 | Posted by Zackary

To think that just a few weeks ago, you were candidly sipping cocktails without worrying about the next day. Your clothing concerns were limited to choosing a swimsuit, while deciding what party to attend next party was your one and only dilemma.

Whether you like it or not, you are back at the office. As soon as you cross the door, your boss greets you with a pile of files, and just as many shady comments like “you didn’t get much tan!”. Due to budgetary restrictions, you are now being asked to contribute for coffee, and must deal with twice as much work because of your fat colleague who finally went on maternity leave. While Patricia from Accounting asks you for your opinion on her new perm, pretext “an urgent call” and flee to drown your pain in shopping. Actually, we have just found 5 pieces that will make your days from 9am to 6pm a little more exciting.

The blazer is the office garment par excellence. Rather than the traditional and monotonous version, we opt for the oversize one and its XXL sleeves, which instantly twist a formal outfit and bring a good dose of casualness. No hands, no emails. (Rick Owens.)

In the same vein revisiting the basics, we move on to the white shirt, here in a dress that perfectly translates the codes of male tailoring. The slits on the sleeves take care of bringing a femininity deeply imbued with power: pull out your claws in meetings. (Christopher Kane.)

At a time when streetwear is dominating fashion, reconnecting with elegance is becoming a real style statement. In a retro chic spirit, the leather case is a solid alternative. Far from the cliché of the sales representative's briefcase, we adopt the leather option with a deliberately strict line, enhanced with refined details.(Thom Browne.)

Play on the codes with all the most classic pumps, except for the material. Combining a PVC upper and a plexiglass heel, the pair is based on a transparency effect that will match any look — and will delight your fetishist manager. (Yeezy.)
