Create a wardrobe that works as hard as you do.

We all want to look (and feel) like the best version of ourselves every day. But coming up with new outfit ideas can sometimes be tough – especially in today’s climate when cost-per-wear is more important than ever.

Thankfully, creating a stylish wardrobe that works hard from the office to off-duty is achievable.

Keep reading for the outfit ideas that will help you transition from work to weekends through the spring/summer season, then keep scrolling for the key pieces you need to get the looks.

1. The Classic Blazer

A guest wore a beige oversized blazer jacket, a white shirt, a belt and pleated skirt during Paris Fashion Week.

Suiting is big right now, and oversized shapes are everywhere. While a jacket used to be the proviso of the boardroom, you can also work a great blazer into your weekend look.

Work it

Pick a classic style and pair it with a button-down shirt, wide-leg trousers, or a maxi skirt for the office. Adding accessories, like a belt and a structured handbag, will elevate your outfit.

Weekend vibes

Work the blazer back on the weekend by teaming with jeans (or denim shorts if the weather is good), a T-shirt and sneakers for a more informal, relaxed vibe.

2. The Shift Dress

Amal Clooney, pictured with husband George Clooney in August, knows the power of a shift dress.

A shift dress will never go out of style – just ask Amal Clooney who stepped out in the style in Italy earlier this year. The loose-fitting shape is extremely flattering for all body shapes and has been a classic for decades.

Work it

A shift dress and a chic pump is an elegant combo for the office. Add a bag and sunglasses and you’re good to go.   

Weekend vibes

So versatile, a shift dress makes day to night dressing a breeze. Layer with a cardigan and chunky sandals in the daytime, then add heels and a clutch for a weekend night out.

3. The Oversized Shirt

Fashion influencer Simone Adams keeps her look tonal with an oversized shirt, pants and sneakers in the same shade.

The oversized shirt trend is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does the style look good, it also feels good to wear, too. It’s the perfect blend of comfort and style.

Work it

A monochromatic, matchy-matchy set will tidy up your look for the office. Wearing all one colour takes an outfit to the next level and makes a statement.

Weekend vibes

This cut of shirt naturally leans casual. Wear on the weekend with denim and sneakers for a laid-back look.
