Take a break from catching up on your inbox, online shop with us instead.

Hello office. We guess it was time to come back, what with it being back to school, back to work, back to reality really. And we suppose we  had started to miss the coffee station.

As we enter the busiest month in our calendar year, it’s time to up your look for the IRL Monday morning meetings. Think crisp cotton and sharp tailoring. Everyday staples if you will. Meet the influencer approved shirts you need in your workwear wardrobe.

Hit the ground running

Monday mornings call for tailored cotton shirts and oversized blazers. And whilst you’re rushed off your feet all day, complete the look by chucking on a cool-but-surprisingly-comfy pair of loafers.

The Look: Blazer, Jeans, Mules

The essentials

Inspired by all the clothes in your boyfriend’s wardrobe, style your oversized shirt with an oversized blazer and loose fitted pair of tailored trousers. Tie everything together with a cross body bag to carry all the essentials: phone, keys, Pret card. 
The Look: Blazer, Trousers, Bag

Desk to dinner

September feels like the busiest month of the year with back to back meetings and plans every night of the week. Style your shirt with a skinny pant and kitten heel, swapping your handbag for a clutch to take you from your desktop to the bar top.

Casual Tailoring

You can’t go wrong with a clean colour palette and oversized classic workwear. Throw your everyday-favourite shirt over a pair of tailored trousers - cinched at the waist with a belt to add shape - and plain vest. Keep the accessories minimal, less is more here.
The Look: Vest, Trousers, Belt, Bag

Boyish Charm 

The jeans, the shirt, the jumper - yeah, we’re borrowing all of them from the boys on this one. Super simple, this chic look is comprised of staples that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Best for days spent on laptops in coffee shops.
The Look: Jumper, Jeans, Belt, Loafers

High-low dressing

The new norm of office wear post pandemic: crisp shirt and tailored shirt? Relax the look with converse. It’s professional with a casual edge. (And the most popular way to style our shirts in WNU HQ).
The Look: Trousers, Converse, Bag

Meetings in town

Keep your look classic with cream coloured accessories to wear with our best-selling Poplin Morning Blue stripe. Meetings - we’re ready for you.
The Look: Blazer, Trousers, Bag, Loafers

But first, coffee

Heavy head on Friday morning? We feel you. This calls for a quick coffee run to the office in a crisp cotton shirt and fresh ecru jeans. This outfit is so effortlessly easy, you’ll wear it as often on the weekend as you will to the office.

Transitional layering

Slowly but surely the temperatures are dropping. Ease into autumnal styling by chucking on some boots and sleeveless vest to go over your shirt.
