With light at the end of the tunnel as we return to our offices, we’re left with one question. What are we going to wear?!

Gone are the days of Zoom meetings, wearing a nice top but with sneaky pyjama bottoms hidden off-screen. Now it’s time to make an effort.

But how can we bring our much-loved working from home comforts back to the office?

From oversized dresses to loose-fitting trousers, we’ve handpicked some staple items for your wardrobe to give you that loungewear feel whilst looking ready for business.
