Workleisure outfits that you can wear as you head back to office
The pandemic has fundamentally changed how we engage with workwear. Pencil fit trousers, skirts, suits and shirts, which used to be the ultimate choice for workwear, have now completely vanished. Instead, workleisure is the latest in workwear as offices open up and employees head back to work.
Traditional office wear has seen a drop in takers over the last year and a half and workleisure trends have seen a growth. This means that elastic waistbands, flared pants, stretchable pants, shirtees, comfortable shoes etc are going to be number one in the back-to-office fashion list. So, here’s bringing to you five workleisure outfits that you can wear to work:
This is a combination of a shirt and T-shirt. “It can be worn for boardroom meetings as well as a quick coffee break. You can style it with flared pants and skirts and for footwear, you can opt for a classy pair of loafers,” says stylist Bakul Dutta.
Soft or slouchy suits
Meghan Markel was recently spotted wearing a maroon-coloured oversized pantsuit. It looked stunning and worked as an appropriate formal outfit. “Pantsuits in various comfortable materials and designs are a huge trend right now. Well-fitted suits now live in the past. Business casual outfits have a huge demand. So, you can sport a linen or silk pantsuit or even polyester, as long as you feel comfortable,” says fashion designer Jayati Chatterjee.
Replace your starchy shirts with flowy silk and satin blouses. You can pair them up with jeans, skirts, trousers. “These blouses add the desired formal look that you need for the workplace and at the same time, they are comfortable,” says Jayati.
Sweatpants aren’t the only comfortable pants that you can wear. A pair of elastic-waist micromodal stretchy trousers, in a more structured fabric and wide leg, offer the perfect compromise between leggings and traditional trousers.
When you love the comfort and coverage of having both a top and a pair of bottoms on, but you don’t have the time to mix and match your closet, the jumpsuit comes to the rescue. Like a dress, a jumpsuit can simply be slipped on and you have an instant outfit ready for work.
