Bottoms are an essential part of every outfit (I mean, no pants no job, right?). As the eye isn't traditionally drawn downwards when meeting someone new these pieces tend to offer the most flexibility and wear-a-bility when building an office wardrobe. If you favour cooler neutrals, stick to blacks and dark greys. If you tend to gravitate towards the warm neutrals choose a dark chocolate brown or camel option, as these colours will offer the most flexibility. Let your blouses and shirts do the wowing and just make sure your bottoms fit well and have flexibility.


Everyone who works in an office needs dress pants. I now have a couple but I started with just one pair - a black straight leg. I would suggest keeping with the neutral pallet you've chosen to build on. If you will likely require a suit, choose a pair that either come with a blazer or match so well they look like they do.

As with trousers, choose a pencil skirt in a neutral colour to begin. Black, dark grey, light grey, brown, camel are all good choices. Try to choose a different colour than what you've chosen for dress pants. This is the perfect way to add a little something extra while maintaining flexibility.

These. Are. Key. Whether you have a casual office which allows you to wear these throughout the week, casual Friday or a formal office with post-work semi-informal meet ups, a great dark pair of jeans allow you to relax while still remaining professional. Boot cut or skinny will work best while flare automatically add an aura of informality.
