What to Wear to Work

It’s true what they say, you only get one chance to make a first impression, and never is that more important than when it comes to office outfits. After a summer of frivolities and festivities, Ted’s going back to work – he’s in pursuit of the perfect professional wardrobe, and he’s taking you with him…

What to wear to a business meeting

Business meeting attire needn’t be daunting. Ted knows it’s all about making a good impression, so first things first: be well-groomed. You can wear the smartest suit in the office but that smudged lipstick on your sleeve, or tell-tale croissant crumbs down your front will only make you look unprofessional. Ted advises a smart co-ordinated look, from a smart blouse and skirt to contemporary culottes and a sleek top. Stick to a neutral color palette; subdued tones with subtle accessories are always a stylish choice, and opt for one of Ted’s polished work purses to finish your look to perfection.

What to wear to a smart office

Ted knows that a smart office dress code doesn’t mean boring. If your office requires a more formal look, opt for tailored silhouettes in neutral shades. Curate a smart office wear wardrobe; explore Ted’s selection of well-cut dresses, sophisticated separates and tailored jackets for inspiration. Covered shoulders are always a wise choice, and hemlines should fall just above the knee or below – leave the mini skirts for the weekend. In the mornings, simply select your outfit and ensure everything is clean and well turned-out (beware last-minute toothpaste stains).

What to wear to a smart casual office

If your office operates a smart casual dress code, there’s a little more opportunity to let your personal style shine through. Smart casual work outfits are simple to follow, just remember that as with any office attire you still need to look professional and appropriate – that means crop tops and mini dresses are off the table. Look instead to well-cut tees and blouses, and pair them with midi skirts, contemporary pants or even smart jeans. Avoid anything with rips in, and opt for a stylish pair of flats or ankle boots to show you mean business (of the smart casual variety).
