The Back to Work Guide for Timeless Workwear Dressing

As we finally start to step back into the office its time to step out of loungewear and elevate our workwear attire. However, during our time spent in home comforts we discovered some incredibly comfortable yet fashionable garments that we’re not likely to part with just yet. Here at GIULIO we’ve brought some of those elevated, easy-going wardrobe essentials with us into our new workwear wardrobe. From a polished touch of soft-suiting to dressed up denim and mood boosting prints, you’ll find all the inspiration you need here.

While the casualization of the office dress code has been taking place for the past few years, the pandemic has reset the guidelines and given fashion lovers the opportunity to showcase our personality in our workwear wardrobes. Whether you’re looking to invest in dressed down tailoring or dressed up denim this season, we’ve got your workwear wardrobe covered.

Dressed Down Suiting

Effortless and underdone, yet smart and sophisticated - relaxed suiting is dominating street style at commuting times. Pay close attention to the details and proportions by styling a relaxed fit oversized blazer with tailored high-waisted trousers to give a chicer take on corporate dressing. Ladies, look to Balenciaga, Max Mara and MM6 Maison Margiela to mix modernity and femininity

Embracing minimalism is key when creating a strong and clean silhouette with denim. Leaning towards classic cuts will make these items closet staples that bring back a sense of normality to a rather abnormal world. Chic and unfussy accessories will give you the opportunity to experiment and elevate as you can bring a touch of your personality into the look.
