Walk back through those doors with your head held high, your suit sharp and your shoes polished.
The endless moments where day blends into night as you while away the hours on the sofa and ponder what to eat next, are sadly over for another year. Time to dust off and move on, back to where you were a couple of weeks ago – a fully fledged member of the working world.
A new year means many things, including a fresh start for your wardrobe. New clothes can be a serious mood booster, making you feel both mentally and physically prepared for that 6am alarm and long working day. Whatever heading back to work means for you, make sure you do it in style.
There’s nothing that says you’re ready for a fresh start like a new suit. Whether you’re going back into the office or college, a decent two-piece can speak volumes for your daily intentions. With winter in full swing, reach for a thicker fabric in a darker colour, and make sure you’re choosing the right style for your body shape – the last thing you need after the festive season is anything unflattering…
The one thing that tends to make or break an outfit is the accessories that are paired with it. If you don’t fancy an entire wardrobe revamp this year, why not focus on a couple of smaller pieces like a new tie or two, some fresh shoes or an everyday bag? These may seem like minor upgrades in the grand scheme of things, but they’re an undoubtedly great start.
Now is the perfect time to refresh the classic basics in your wardrobe, casting aside old, worn out pieces in favour of brand new ones. An excellent wardrobe should be filled with timeless pieces that work for every occasion, starting with chinos, shirts, polos and crewneck sweatshirts, all in neutral colours. Use these as your starting point, and everything else will fall perfectly into place.
