Office Outfit Inspired by New York Fashion Week Timeless and elegant workwear.

February 2, 2020

New York Fashion Week kicks off today, and we’re looking forward to seeing what designers will present on the catwalk but also the street style during NYFW, which is always a fantastic source of office outfit inspiration.

When we think of New York Fashion Week, the first that comes to mind is a woman who is chic and more classic. This woman is a lawyer, or maybe she works in a bank, in a consulting firm or a museum. The New Yorker wears a sleek office outfit because she has meetings, lunches and very often, she goes straight from work to have dinner with friends in some trendy restaurant.

Inspired by the style of professional women in New York, we chose pieces by designers who are in NYFW, so that you can put together great office looks for different situations.

Versatile Coat

A coat that can be worn like a dress is a classic and very chic option. The timeless outwear looks like you mean business, yet it’s also feminine and classy. Wear this sleek look to a meeting; it is the perfect outfit to close important deals.

Trousers and Blouse

Working women usually opt for classic looks to meet clients. Combining a blouse with pants is the go-to look of businesswomen, and a crisp white shirt is a must for an elegant office look. You can modernise your outfit wearing bright-coloured shoes and a little bag.

Blue Dress

Blue is a flattering colour for any woman, and the midi-length and sleeves of this piece are very office-appropriate. The blue dress can be paired with heels or sneakers, depending on where you work.

Do you want to jazz up your suit? Modernise the tireless jacket and pants combo by merely layering a vest over it. The vest is one of the most contemporary pieces you should have in your wardrobe, and you can keep wearing it throughout spring.

Asymmetric look

An asymmetric dress or skirt brings a bit of edge and nowness to your office look. Thanks to its irregular hem, this dress is a classic outfit with a twist, which is perfect to wear from work to a night out with friends.
