Back-to-Office Outfit Inspiration From the Pages of Vogue
Whether you’re just starting to head back to the office or have been making the commute for a while, you could probably use some outfit inspiration.
The new uniform
EverlaneEverlane Japanese oxford shirt$47
KhaiteKhaite Amelie pants in heather gray$1380
A crisp oxford paired with wide-leg trousers is a quintessential office outfit, but tricky to get just right. Elevate this combo with a great pair of pumps and some personalized jewelry.
The ’70s Classics
NordstromNili Lotan Tanner trench coat$747
Moda operandiVictoria Victoria Beckham high-rise cotton-chino flared pants$475
Fall staples unite in this fail-safe combination. You can easily wear any piece of this outfit off-duty too.
The Printed Dress
MYTHERESARixo Aoife paisley-print silk dress$381
MATCHESFASHION.COMErdem Tillie floral-embroidered jersey dress$1815
Show a bit of personality with a fabulous printed dress, but keep it comfortable with a pair of dressy flats. Mismatched earrings continue the artsy theme.
The Commuter Look
NET-A-PORTERChloé recycled denim midi shirtdress$1695
SSENSEJuun.J black leather thigh-high boots$650
A low-heel boot is no substitute for a sneaker, but it gets the balance between comfort and style just right. A denim dress offers an interesting mix of textures and is chic to, well, boot.
The Tailored Trio
MATCHESFASHION.COMBalmain double-breasted virgin wool-twill blazer$1870
RAG & BONERag & Bone Nina high-rise flared jeans$198
If you like to keep your office look sleek and to the point, you can’t go wrong with mixing classic shirting, straight-leg pants, and a sharp double-breasted blazer. This says “I’m here to get the job done.”
The Casual Friday
LA DOUBLEJLa DoubleJ boy shirt in silk twill$640
LA DOUBLEJLa DoubleJ palazzo pants in silk twill$780
When you need to look put-together but have no time to do it, reach for a set. A printed silk pajama suit—emphasis on the “suit” part—is office-ready thanks to the button-up shirt with a sharp collar.
The Fail-Safe Set
FARFETCHCommission plaid cropped sweater$870
FARFETCHCommission plaid merino wool midi-skirt$705
See my aforementioned feelings on sets. In the fall and winter, matching knit tops and skirts or pants make for an easy and on-trend look.
The Not-So-Traditional Tweed

MATCHESFASHION.COMGiambattista Valli braided-trim checked bouclé jacket$3700
A tweed jacket is classic for a reason. It adds a bit of sophistication to any outfit, but designers have found ways recently to make it feel a little more youthful via braided trims, sequins, and grosgrain bows.
The Skirt Suit
NET-A-PORTERAdam Lippes embellished cotton miniskirt$690
NET-A-PORTERAdam Lippes embellished cotton jacket$1290
The most classic office outfit gets a refresh thanks to a shorter hemline. Balance out your mini with an oversized jacket, a buttoned-up shirt, or cool flats.
The Pop-of-Color Handbag
NordstromSaint Laurent Maillon leather shoulder bag$2650
MATCHESFASHION.COMStaud Scotty leather shoulder bag$325
Your office bag doesn’t have to be an afterthought. Bring it to the forefront of your outfit by choosing a shoulder bag or top-handle in a zingy shade of poppy. Brighten up your day and your cubicle.
