Most workplaces don’t expect their people to stick to black, navy and grey anymore – even the most conservative employer will allow you to show a little personality through your wardrobe. But it’s a fine line to tread, and that’s why it might be best to visit a store that perfectly balances fashion forward and office-appropriate – like G2000.
This season’s collection offers a runway-inspired palette including on-trend yellows, reds and corals as well as more muted shades, plus prints like stripes and florals. The design team took inspiration from Florida’s Leu Gardens, known for its magnificent camellia and rose collections, and a Havana sunset. The fashion-forward feel extends to the shapes and cuts too –boxy, oversized silhouettes as seen at Jil Sander, Balenciaga and Celine, wide cropped pants and skorts to get you that athleisure look.
Keep things on trend with runway-fresh pastels like a lemon yellow dress, paired with a preppy blazer, or a lilac dress with soft knit vest.
Light Long Sleeve Cardigan, $69. Floral Eyelet Dress, $119.
Longline Knit Vest, $79. Floral Lace Dress, $139.
AS YOU LIKE IT
Even the staple business casual matching sets get a twist: Most can be mixed and matched so you can change up your look with ease, and select something that perfectly suits your personal style. Blazers are sharp and tailored, pants are stylishly cuffed at the ankle, and there are culotte pants and vests if the conventional trouser suit is not for you. The man in your life isn’t left out either – the brand offers him the same standard of work- and casual-wear with a little edge.
Your business casual matching set doesn’t have to be a standard pant suit. Instead, crop off the sleeves, choose shorts instead of trousers, or go for soft powder blue rather than the usual darker colours.
Soft Blazer, $99. Two Tone Lace Blouse, $59. Flare Skirt, $59.
Sleeveless Blazer, $99. Straight Leg Pants, $69.
Wide-legged, cropped pants have been the surprise hit of the season. They’re perfect with a simple white sleeveless blouse with detail at the neck.
Tie Detail Blouse, $49. Stripe Wide Leg Culottes, $69.
