16 Best Workwear Brands, 2022

H&M, Mango

Finding workwear brands that are both affordable and stylish isn’t always easy. Of course, over the last couple of years we’ve moved to a much more comfortable work look (i.e. the same sweatshirt and leggings fitted to our WFH kitchen counter setup), so if you have now returned to a real office and reunited with work buddies, pulling yourself together work outfits can look a little intimidating.

Why? Because they often require a certain level of formality and ~professionalism~ about them. We’re talking: collared shirts, fitted jackets, sleek midi skirts – you get the vibe. But just because your office (probably) has a dress code, that doesn’t mean shopping for 9-to-5 clothes has to be a total party. On the contrary, some of my favorite fashion pieces were originally bought for work and have now moved into my smart-casual weekend wardrobe.

So, with more of us back in the office, we’ve rounded up our 16 best brands to shop for workwear in 2022.

Stories is a go-to brand for chic, quality workwear, especially if you’re looking for tailored sets and separates, sleek sweaters and playful midi dresses. Yes, the prices are a little higher but in my experience my Stories pieces have stood the test of time both in quality and timeless silhouettes.

For those of you who haven’t heard of COS, it’s pretty much H&M’s older sister, with slightly more casual and grown-up styles in muted color palettes and subtle prints.

If you’re looking to get your money’s worth out of your workwear, you really should check out Mango and their recently expanded curve offering. Why?

You’re in good hands with Reiss when it comes to chic and understated workwear. If you’re looking to upgrade your work wardrobe with plenty of stylish cuts in neutral tones, beautifully silhouetted blouses and modern knits, Reiss is your go-to destination. Ps Meghan Markle is also a fan of the brand’s camel coat.

For those who subscribe to the “less is more” wardrobe mantra, Whistles is a loud cry. Some pieces may be priced slightly higher than other high street favourites, but the brand’s offering of no-fuss contemporary options makes it a no-brainer for high-end workwear.
