Your workwear dress code for every office occasion

Author Editor - 2 minute read
Working 9-5? Let us help tick something off your to-do list by introducing you to your new office dress code - prime pieces worthy of a wardrobe promotion.


The dreaded work commute. We all face it in our own ways: whether we listen to morning radio, get stuck into a new page-turner or scroll through social media. The smart-casual approach to women’s workwear makes everyday dressing effortless; we’re talking relaxed yet refined popover shirts to suave suiting trousers. Our office outfit inspiration this season comes from the Quiet Luxury trend, taking neutrals to new heights and dressing-up our basics for the best of both worlds approach to our workwear wardrobe.



Step away from the desks and deadlines for an hour, and don a smart office dress for the occasion. We champion team spirit here at French Connection HQ, and we believe the best office dresses for women reflect this too. No smart shirt dress is complete without a structured bag, and a pinafore is the perfect black dress for the office teamed with a contrasting shirt.



Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic. Smart workwear doesn’t come more sophisticated than the women’s shirt. From the Monday morning coffee run to the Friday afternoon 1-2-1s, a shirt is a staple for your best office outfits. From a timeless plain piece to floral shirts, popovers to button-downs, there’s a shirt waiting to be worn every day of the working week.



If you’ve spent all week working on your slides, make sure your smart workwear presents them in style. You can never go wrong with a powerful co-ord, and a tailored two-piece means business from Monday to Friday. The latest office wear trends offer a revamp on the traditional suiting, from chic cropped blazers to stepping away from the traditional black suits for women’s business attire in bold colours, due to cue compliments from every colleague. Pair these striking office outfits with a crisp white shirt and you’ll be ready to take on the big wigs in the boardroom.



Make the most of your weekday evenings and elevate your women’s workwear to cater for every occasion. For office outfit ideas to carry you through to the evening and beyond, we’re adding pops of colour, flattering midi skirts and refined accessories to our workwear collection. A pair of gleaming huggie earrings or a shin-skimming skirt are raring to reinvigorate your smart work clothes with sassy flair.
