Many of us are back in the office these days, which means we might have to change up our looks a bit.

Farewell, sweatpants on the bottom and Zoom-ready shirts on top.

Hello, proper trousers and shoes.

But who ever said workwear had to be boring?

We’ve picked out some work-ready outfits that will look just as good at your 9-5 as on your days off.

Plus, some practical beauty minis that will keep you covered on your commute.

Midaxi tiered dress

Tickled pink

We were genuinely blown away to discover that this cool midaxi day dress is from M&S. It’s made from Irish linen and it’s only £79. Form an orderly queue…

Buy it for £79 from Marks & Spencer

Strawberry hoop earrings

How sweet

Wolf & Moon’s Strawberry Hoop earrings are the perfect nod to Wimbledon and the summer. The gold hoops can be worn separately too.

Dr Hauschka Skin Care Passport products

Good things come in small sizes

We love these limited-edition minis from Dr Hauschka — they’re handy for glamping weekends or for trying out a new product without committing to a full-sized bottle.

No Plastic Shampoo bar

Acting naturally? We do!

Certified by the Vegan Society and Cruelty Free International, weDo is a new hair and body range that’s both silicone- and sulphate-free.

The brand has partnered with Plastic Bank, which clears eight plastic items of rubbish from the environment for every weDo product sold.

Stella McCartney AW Collection

Stella’s got sustainability in the bag

A pioneer of ethical fashion, Stella McCartney’s latest collection is her most sustainable yet, with 80% of the collection made from eco-friendly materials.

We love the vegan Frayme bag, £1,425, and the new maxi Falabella tote, £1,190.

The perfect hot weather work-to-evening outfit? The short suit.

This Reiss yellow Myah blazer (£235) and shorts (£120) combo, curated by influencer Debora Rosa with sharp white sneakers, gets our vote for being cool and collected.
