When it comes to off-duty fashion, there are plenty of trends to look out for. From evening to casual attire, the options are limitless but when we’re talking about our work wardrobes, it can be hard to find the perfect outfit. Though we want it to be appropriate, we also need it to looks stylish wherever we go while making a strong fashion statement.

This season, designers have reinvented what it means to dress work appropriately with contemporary silhouettes and edgy prints. For those who are willing to try something new, here are the trendy essentials every woman needs in her wardrobe for the office.

We love a stylish jumpsuit, not just because it requires no effort but also because it’s ultimately a more stylish version of a power suit. This fashionable get-up by Fendi (HK$13,692) will convey power while staying on-trend.



Skip out on the conventional cuts and colours and instead opt for modern pieces that will look stylish for seasons to come. This nude Balenciaga blouse (HK$9,239) features extra long sleeves for a stylish look.


Leather jacket

Instead of wearing your everyday blazer, try wearing a twist to the ordinary jacket. Gucci’s take on the traditional blazer (HK$23,241) comes in leather and bright pink so your work attire can make a fashion statement.


One-shoulder top

There’s nothing wrong with showing a little skin in the boardroom, it’s all about the way you do it. This Stella McCartney asymmetric (HK$3,563) will turn your work power suit into a trendy ensemble.



Giving the classic a new look, we love to see designers bring back these vintage blazers. Saint Laurent is one of the brand who’s done it well, giving the jacket (HK$14,233) a tailored yet modern look.



No one does quirky quite as well as Gucci and there’s nothing wrong with adding an edge to your office ensemble. This particular dress (HK$19,046) is an effortless way to  look stylish and trendy at work.


Poplin top

Poplin shirts have always been a staple but the new and improved version is a sight for sore eyes. Johanna Ortiz’ top (HK$4,805) is the perfect twist your new office look needs.



Paying tribute to the iconic tailoring skills of Saint Laurent, these culottes  (HK$9,240) will turn anything in your office wardrobe into a statement look.



We love any shirt that can take us from day to night and this Beaufille top (HK$2,635) does exactly that. While business appropriate in the front, the open back is party-ready.



When wearing a skirt to work, it doesn’t have to be your usual pencil skirt. Facetasm’s pleated skirt (HK$4,805) will add a fashionable edge to your ensemble.
