Workwear has evolved through the years—from Wall Street pinstripes to Silicon Valley casual.  And with many more going back to the office after two years of work-from-home arrangements, this is a good time to give your office wardrobe a reboot.

Refresh your office wear with three new looks from the SM Store: minimalist, preppy, and workleisure. 

Minimalist looks are best for more traditional office arrangements. It combines simplicity with elegance like SM Woman’s Prima collection worn with Parisian’s heels, pumps, bagsm and Raya’s set of earrings and necklaces. For men, there are dress shirts and pants from Baleno, Smyth, and Mainstreet; as well as shoes and bags from Milanos and Salvatore Mann.

(L) Corporate basics: a dress shirt and slacks available at SM Store’s Men’s Department | (R) Monochromatic satin blouse and pants from SM Woman paired with Raya jewelry and a Parisian bag.

Preppy styles, on the other hand, highlight business comfort. Think relaxed cardigans and jackets, and slacks paired with sling bags, backpacks, duffle bags, leather shoes, loafers, and watches for men.  There are also casual dresses, vests, and coordinates best paired with accessories watches, platform shoes, backless loafers, and crossbody, sling, and shoulder bags. 

(L) Mainstreet blazer, pants, and Baleno tee paired with a Salvatore Mann duffle bag, Hush Puppies loafers, and a watch from SM Accessories | (R)  SM Woman vest dress worn with Antepara eyewear, a Parisian shoulder bag, and platform shoes.

Workleisure outfits underscore how lines have blurred between working and living by combining corporate style with an athleisure attitude many have embraced work. Think of women wearing blazers with sports bras, as well as more denim and sneaker sightings in the workplace.


The new WorkWear is available at all SM Stores nationwide.
