How to Curate the Perfect Smart Casual Working Wardrobe

Curating the perfect workwear ensemble is easier said than done. With our weekday wardrobes dramatically changing over recent years and the transition from loungewear back to office-appropriate attire in full swing, now is the perfect time to re-invent your working wardrobe.

As some previous formalities have relaxed, we’re finding that smart-casual styles are rightfully earning their place in our workwear collection. With this, looser-fitting styles, natural materials and softer tailoring are becoming staples in work-outfit planning. The best pieces are the ones that you can interchange between off-duty styling and workwear alike. As summer is now upon us, naturally anything that keeps us cool through morning commutes is a worthwhile investment.
