Teleworking was (very) cool, but now you might have to go back to the office … No choice: let go of your jogging and slowly take the path of the stylish working girl . Good thing, this back to school marks the big comeback of essentials for going to work, in elegant materials and powerful cuts. A tour of the pieces that made us want to get back to work.
The pleated skirt / sweater combo
Austere, the dark pleated skirt ? Not if we make it match with a big soft sweater slipped on a shirt whose collar and sleeves are protruded like in this Gérard Darel look. And why not bet on a colorful mesh , beautiful golden jewelry and a belt to accessorize the set?
The luxury pantsuit
If there's one fashion item to invest in for a lifetime when you're an accomplished working girl, it's the pantsuit . Icicle , the divine Chinese label pioneer of responsible fashion , has unearthed a combed wool as supple as one wishes to make its tailoring marvels as comfortable as they are light.
Combed wool jacket € 1290, silk twill shirt € 550, combed wool pants € 590, all Icicle, available in store
Updated on Celine's catwalks, the denim culottes are aristocratic with a silky blouse on a fine contrasting turtleneck and beautiful heeled boots . A set as stylish as it is easy to assemble when inspiration runs out.
The small mesh cardigan
It will be necessary to count on him this winter to be a beast of fashion in the office. A preview at Louis Vuitton , the small, short-sleeved mesh cardigan is the most all-terrain piece of the moment. Slip it on a shirt with a nice collar with leather pants to mark a remarkable contrast of materials. Mango offers a set that will particularly highlight it.
The braided maxi tote
For a well-established office look, style and practicality can be combined. This is evidenced by the maxi tote , an ultimately fashion accessory spotted on the catwalks of Fendi , Acne Studios and Jil Sander . Chosen in black or chocolate and in braided leather, it stands out as a strong piece to establish the legitimacy of strappy sandals, a leather culotte skirt and an oversized white shirt as at Massimo Dutti .
The floral chiffon dress
The floral dress has been so present on the catwalks for several seasons that it is now considered an unmistakable timeless. You still have to find the right cut and the right pattern. Sister Paris imagines for La Redoute the perfect portable model from the office to the corner terrace for a drink with friends. Metallic moccasins are an original alternative to classic heeled ankle boots.
Dress € 89, moccasins € 119, all from Sœur Paris x La Redoute , collection available September 16
The perfect little gray dress
We know by heart the little black dress , ally of seductive and all-terrain style. It will suit its workwear equivalent, the little gray dress , to be perfectly cut to grant the legitimacy of a girl boss without appearing provocative if too austere. The bet has been taken up at See By Chloé, which signs a perfect asymmetrical model in flannel with layering games, compatible with office life accompanied by pumps as on the date to follow with seventies boots with heels.
The preppy set
A black blazer belted over a white shirt with a textured collar is an even more couture duo when it comes to sublimate high-waisted tailored-style shorts in a contrasting color to avoid the uniform effect. Full box for this Sandro look that we imagine worn with patent moccasins.
Shirt € 165, b lazer € 345, shorts € 245, all from Sandro , available in store
