For those of us back in the office, it’s time to take advantage of dressing up and getting bold not only for ourselves, but with the added benefit of delighting our colleagues! This year, the team at Because is shunning the dull and the dreary and ramping up texture, colour and vibrancy in our HQ, with outfits that will bring more than just water-cooler chat.

Make an entrance in Rodarte’s powerful pink lace suit or shine all day in Valentino’s sequin aqua blazer. Opt for a Sportmax neon yellow suit, DSquared2 candy stripe blazer or Roksanda colour-block skirt this season to inject some energy and positivity, your colleagues won’t only have their screens to look at!

For the love of neon, Cara wears an oversized satin blazer in a spin on 80s power dressing by Sportmax, with men’s style-pockets and raw cut edges. The fixed-strap, gold metallic Miranda bag by By Far is an eye-catching accomplice to wow your co-workers. 

With not three, not four, but five pockets, Sportmax’s low-rise trousers, inspired by denim jeans, give workwear a casual flair. A navy blue shirt, also Sportmax, and Shushu/Tong bowed embellished heels complete the look with understated elegance.

Far more important engagements… Precise tailoring contrasts the intricacy of the lacework in a pretty pink flourish, helping you to feel fun and fierce in the office. The confidence you can sell to whoever's on the phone.

An important appointment with a yoga ball by Chanel. The flared cut trousers by Dsquared2, with pressed pleats and silk details, are a sophisticated style for guaranteed comfort. We still wouldn’t recommend them for yoga (especially tricky with Tory Burch gold leather slingbacks).

Hiding last night’s tired eyes in rectangular Gucci sunglasses, Cara sits bored in her Dsquared2 graphic tee and brush-stroke style striped blazer (insert elastic band stress ball).

Cara’s on her way to dazzle the driver with her UPS package in hand. Adorned with azure Valentino sequins, the double-breasted, oversized blazer is assured to stop traffic, with Valentino Garavani accessories to match.

Ready for her close-up (or a night on the town). Valentino’s statement blazer is a versatile piece that sparkles in both office and disco lights.

Can’t you see I’m busy? Cara delves into Tank’s latest issue wearing a longline blazer and a straight skirt from Roksanda with bursts of salamander orange and mahogany. Platform Dior footwear elongates her power-suit silhouette.

A look to make you pop! Bringing drama to the office, Shushu/Tong’s petite satin bag with scalloped beaded trim is the perfect pouch, complemented by that Roksanda blazer.
