Although working in the office seems to be a rarity for a lot of people in the art world nowadays following widespread covid-induced WFH, those who do work in an office should have the stress of what to wear low on their priority list. However, figuring out an outfit for the office is quite a challenge, especially after living in sweatpants for close to two years. Alongside work you are probably low on time to rummage through your entire wardrobe day after day searching for an appropriate work outfit that’s both stylish and comfortable – so it’s time to make a capsule work wardrobe. With your fresh wardrobe of staple clothing that is composed of interchangeable items only, to maximize the number of outfits that can be created, the aim is to have an outfit suitable for any work occasion without owning excessive items of clothing. This will not only will save you more time in the morning before work but also can promote a more eco-conscious lifestyle by buying less.

A pencil skirt (more formal) or midi skirt (more casual)
