Smart-Casual Office Outfits

A smart-casual dress code can sometimes be hard to navigate. It focuses on more relaxed clothing that still fits well and looks put together. If your office is asking for a smart-cas vibe, here are a few of our staple styles.

What To Wear With Black Trousers For Work

A pair of black trousers are the foundation of any workwear wardrobe. Both versatile and stylish, they can be dressed up or down no matter the occasion – the smart-casual dream! You can opt for tapered styles, straight leg or pleated trousers to suit your shape and preference. Use them as the base for any of your shirts, blouses and tops from a classic white shirt to your favourite knit – the list is endless.

These bengaline slim fit trousers are ideal for smartening up your trouser collection. We’ve teamed it with a cami and an oversized shirt for a fail-safe work look. Finish with loafers and you’re all set for a day in the office.

Here we’ve styled our Yours London Wide-leg trousers with a lace cami, black heels and a shoulder bag for a smart 9-5 look we love. You could switch the cami for a white blouse or a long sleeve white tee for a more relaxed vibe.

What To Wear With Dresses For Work

We love anything to do with dresses here at Yours Clothing. They are the holy grail item that we can always rely on in the working week and beyond. Comfortable, flattering and smart, you can dress them down with trainers for a relaxed look or up with strappy heels if you’re wanting a glam vibe. With maxi, midi and in-between midaxi lengths available, you can fill your work wardrobe with different designs to showcase your style!

What To Wear With Oversized Shirts

Nothing beats an oversized shirt. They offer a stylish, timeless look whilst still ticking the smart criteria. Here we’ve styled our crisp white boyfriend shirt with a pair of plus size jeans that sit in all the right places. The best thing about it? It comes in 10 different colours, so you can choose between classic whites and bold brights depending on how you feel. Finish with trainers or a block heel for an on-trend get-up.
