Fashion: Four New Takes On The Office Outfit

Fashion: Four New Takes On The Office Outfit

Don't want to be seen as an office-drone? Then don't look like one. Here's how

It’s January in the office. It’s freezing. This week has mostly consisted of a round of meetings where management lay out a plan for changes they’re potentially planning to implement, once they’ve thought about what those changes are. The word “directive” is being used a lot. It was “synergy” in 2015. The weekend has never, ever seemed further away.

Never mind champ. Your ski-tanned boss might well be his job, but you’re not. You’re going to escape this machine one day. You can start that process by looking the part. You’d be surprised how far people get just by the day-to-day first impression they give. Don’t want to be seen as just another office drone? Then don’t look like one. Stand out with these four new takes on the office outfit, all for under £100.  

 

The Country Gent

What it says about you: “Sure. I’ll do your presentation. And I won’t complain. Because one day…I’m inheriting.”

Outfit from ASOS: Waistcoat: £32 Shoes: £33 Bag: £22 Belt: £10

All in inc. delivery: £97

 

The European Media Guy

What it says about you: “Sure, I’ll do your presentation. And I won’t complain. Because I’m going home to my studio loft apartment in a part of London you haven’t even heard of. With my girlfriend. Who has genital piercings.”

Outfit from ASOS:  Shoes: £12 Belt: £10 Jacket £22.50 Backpack: £25 

All in inc. delivery: £69.50

 

The 70s Guy

What it says about you: “Sure, I’ll do your presentation. And I won’t complain. Because unlike you, Boss, when I walk in to Shoreditch bars on the weekend, I turn left.

Outfit from ASOS: Blazer: £45 Shoes: £13 Tie: £8 Bag: £25

 All in inc. delivery: £91

 

The Suspiciously Entrepreneurial Guy

What it says about you: “Sure, I’ll do your presentation. And I won’t complain. Because as we speak my new app’s deep-liquid-finance algorithm is quietly buying micro-shares of your business / mortgage / wife.

Outfit from ASOS: Shoes: £22 Braces: £10 Jacket: £22 Bag: £13.50

All in inc. delivery: £67.50

 

Put this on your Payday to-do list. We guarantee you’ll be receiving emails about being a “blue-sky-thinking-project-lead” within weeks. Whether you can take time out of your busy dating schedule with the Portuguese receptionist in the office upstairs is another matter. Good dilemma to have, bro.
