  1. Versatile Blazer:

A well-cut blazer instantly elevates any outfit and adds a polished touch to the simplest of looks. Select a blazer in a neutral shade like navy, black, beige or charcoal, as these colours pair well with most other pieces in your wardrobe. Whether you wear it over a dress, blouse, or a simple tee, a blazer will make you look refined and professional.

  1. Crisp Button-Down Shirts:

A classic button-down shirt is a must-have for any work wardrobe. It exudes sophistication and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. White shirts in particular will forever be a classic work wardrobe staple, but why not try a trendy colour like a striped blue from Mango? Whatever colour or pattern shirt you choose, our Mango shirts are made from high-quality fabric, from fitted to flowy shirts, we have options to suit everyone. Pair with trousers for a formal look or tuck it into a midi skirt for a more feminine touch. You can also layer it under blazers or sweaters for extra warmth during cooler months.

  1. Office Trousers:

Investing in a couple of well-tailored trousers is essential for a professional work wardrobe. Opt for neutral colours like black, navy, beige or grey, as they are versatile and can be mixed and matched with various tops and blazers. Choose a style that flatters your body shape and ensures a comfortable fit. Tapered, culotte or straight-leg trousers work well for most body types and can seamlessly transition from the office to after-work events. The Mango Trousers Buckle in Beige and Black is a work wardrobe essential for these reasons, with the medium waist, culotte cropped design and bulk/belt, they are a timeless style for any wardrobe.

  1. Stylish Midi Skirts:

For a touch of femininity and elegance, a midi skirt is a versatile piece that comes in various styles, from satin midi skirts to denim midi skirts. Neutral colours like black, grey or navy work well for a professional setting, but you can also experiment with subtle patterns or textures. Pair with a blouse, t-shirt or a silk top for a chic look that seamlessly transitions from desk to dinner.

An easy way to add elegance to your work wardrobe is with a dress, as a dress delivers maximum style with minimal effort. Midi dresses are a non-negotiable work wardrobe essential, that can be dressed up or down and styled appropriately for any season. With sandals, pumps, heels, or stylish trainers or with tights and boots coming into the winter months.
