As we flex back into the office it's time to rethink our daily outfits. While fashion is hardly a priority right now, we're sure you'll agree that what you wear to work really does have an impact on the way your feel and function. But our daily ‘work from home' looks might not cut it when we arrive back in the office. Business on top, casual on the bottom for those daily Zoom calls just won't work!
If there's one thing we've learned as a made to measure brand, it's that you can still look professional and polished whilst dressing comfortably. Out goes the ‘athleisure' basics we've been wearing on repeat and in comes some so soft tailored pieces made to fit so that you can dress comfortably whilst still looking professional.
Here's our pick of the three pieces to buy now as we transition back into the office.
If there's a style of trouser to embrace as we head back to the office it's the wide-leg trouser or palazzo pant. Teamed with a super soft T-shirt or silk blouse, this softly tailored trouser will instantly pull your look together and get you in the ‘back to work' mindset. The looser, fluid fit of our made to measure trousers means that you will feel comfortable all day long.
The Distinctively Me Wide Leg Trouser
Made to fit you perfectly, the style can have a sewn in pleat, which gives this relaxed trouser structure and elevates the wide leg to a smart style. It can be full length, 7/8 length or worn as a culottes.
Dressing for work is easy when you have a classic silk blouse in your wardrobe. One of the most timeless wardrobe staples, it's the one piece every woman should own. High quality, made to order, versatile and timeless, a silk blouse offers a piece of luxe in your working day.
"It's an essential piece that instantly elevates any look. A classic item that you'll never tire of" says our founder Jill White.
The Distinctively Me Silk Blouse
Our 100% silk made to order tops will elevate your Monday to Friday work wear look and also give a sophisticated edge to a casual weekend outfit. We offer two styles and four sleeve options to make the top perfect for you - sleeveless, ¾ length, full length or a puff full-length sleeve. And with over 80 colours to choose from, there really is a shade to suit you.
We are now offering an online service - book an online measuring video call and we'll show you how to take your measurements correctly.
According to The Times fashion desk, one way to look smart fast is to throw on a bright blazer and we couldn't agree more. Shop with joy in mind and embrace a colour pop. Wear over jeans, a summer maxi or, this seasons must-have, shorts to make any look more work appropriate. Opt for a single breasted style and made to measure, you'll be able to wear it open or buttoned up knowing that it fits you to perfection.
The Distinctively Me Blazer
Choose your fabric - Italian suiting, Luxury British superfine wool, boucle, flannel or velvet or perfectly for this classic style. And then customise your look to get the perfect blazer for you - from coloured lining to funky buttons and leather lapels. Alternatively opt for a classic blazer - a style that never goes out of fashion.
