Get ready to say “Huzzah!” Because the new office trend? Is comfort. That’s right. Say goodbye to stuffy suits and toe pinching heels. And say hello to chic sweatshirts, cool sneaks, and colorful everything. Today’s work wear has taken on a relaxed vibe, and I don’t think anyone is complaining.
According to Roopal Patel, fashion director of Sacks Fifth Avenue, “There’s less separation between weekday and weekend clothing these days.” People are wearing stretchy fabrics to the office; polyester is having a luxury moment; and sneakers can be worn with (just about) anything. Designers of clothing line Ministry took chic comfort wear a step further—and launched a line of shirts, suits, and other apparel “that look like traditional office fare, but could be worn for yoga,” (www.wsj.com).
Can we say, yes, please?
Imagine being as comfortable at work as you are on your couch. Here are a few of my favorite office-to-home-to-event pieces now acceptable to wear any hour of the day, any day of the week:
- This adorable white sweatshirt with twist hemline detail from Therapy is classic with a fun twist. Pair with everything from a pencil skirt to chinos to a full maxi.
- These sleek sneaks from Anthropologie look more like oxfords than tennis shoes. ADORE.
- Splendid’s rayon jersey pocket dress is the perfect comfort piece that’ll take you from morning until night — pair with a streamline jacket for day and a statement necklace for the evening.
- Joie’s 100% rayon pants feel like PJs but look office chic. Can we say win-win?
What I love most about this comfort trend is you no longer need to have two wardrobes. A work appropriate one and a weekend appropriate one. Thanks to today’s trends, your one fabulous wardrobe will take you from the couch to the office to the bar. All while staying comfortable; all while staying stylish.
