Farewell WFH: 41 Chic Workwear Pieces To Shop

By Astrid Carter | 15th September 2021

Few places do great workwear quite like Reiss, and with a welcomed return to the office for many and a new season on the horizon now is the time to invest in some new work essentials.

Whether your office dress code is fairly relaxed or your job requires you to be suited and booted at all times, there’s no harm in feeling pulled together, appropriate and stylish at work. And after months of working from home and a wardrobe on loungewear rotate, we’re looking forward to getting dressed up again.

From impeccably cut blazers to flattering blouses, hard working suiting to dresses that have desk-to-dinner written all over them, scroll on for our edit of Reiss’ best workwear.

Go-To Shirts and Blouses

It pays to have a few hard working blouses and well-cut shirts in your work wardrobe and Reiss has plenty. Embrace the masculine shape of their classic, clean-lined Jenny shirt – available in both blue poplin and white – and pair with everything from high-waisted, wide-leg trousers to a butter-soft leather skirt.

Reiss have always nailed the pretty blouse with a few iterations coming through every season – we love the soft blush cut-out detailing of the Freda, whilst the monochrome Florence floral print blouse offers perfect desk-to-dinner dressing.

Desk To Dinner Dresses

Reiss' Kara knitted jumper dress paired with knee-high boots and a masculine cut coat is the way to work this season's '70s trend but make it office appropriate.

Power Skirts

Whether you go for a timeless but tough leather pencil skirt or something softer like Reiss’ pleated Ariella skirt in soft jersey fabric, make sure a power skirt is on your AW21 wish list.

Tailored Trousers

When it comes to work trousers there are two vital components to consider – fit and quality – get them right and you’ll have the perfect foundation to many a weekday look.

Reiss offers both and in a multitude of styles, whether you favour a smart cigarette pant or a sports luxe-inspired wide-leg jogger – perfect if your daily dress code can be a little more relaxed.

Up your cost per wear and invest in some smart casual styles that bridge the gap between work and weekend. We love the Tate cargo trousers and the Sian high-rise flares paired with both a crisp white shirt or a casual slub tee when you’re off duty.

Hard Working Blazers & Coats

A good blazer will become one of the hardest working, versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

Keep it classic with navy and black in timeless double-breasted cuts or go for something softer like the Logan camel-hued blazer for a piece you’ll keep on repeat forever.

And while it might feel a little premature to be investing in a winter coat now is the time while stocks are still high. We love the simplicity of Reiss’ Brooks longline overcoat in camel or navy worn over smart tailoring or with weekend denim and chunky knits.

Cosy Knitwear

Finally, everyone needs a good knit to see them through the winter months (and the office air con). Invest in the softest cashmere blend sweaters and pair with relaxed-fit wide-leg trousers.

We're reaching for this Kelis oversized cardigan in lieu of a jacket while the weather is still warm.
