After spending two years sequestering indoors, the return of the 9-to-5 grind can make for a welcome excuse to test-drive the season’s newest styles and silhouettes. If you are looking to make up for lost time, it helps to peek into the style files of the industry’s most-loved Gen Z stars for a quick crashcourse on how to infuse the top trends that the season has to offer into your back-to-work wardrobe:

All White Is Always A Good Idea

There’s no going wrong with classics and few know this lesson better than Shanaya Kapoor who opted for a white-on-white colour pairing for her power suit. Follow her lead, and opt for a menswear-inspired slouchy fit for extra sartorial cred.

There’s No Going Wrong With Tone-On-Tone

If you thought neutrals were boring, Khushi Kapoor would like you to think again. The Archies star served up a masterclass in tonally matched dressing by opting for a nuanced palette of neutral hues from head-to-toe.

Statement Blazers Are Here To Stay

Your workwear wardrobe is never complete without a statement-making blazer, and Ananya Panday clearly agrees. A graphic number like hers served up in a punchy green palette will make for a mood-boosting addition to those early morning Zoom calls.

Hit Refresh On Your Silhouettes

If you are tired of the usual suspects, look to Alaya F for a quick lesson in non-boring silhouettes. An unconventional number like hers can be layered over a white buttondown during the day and worn sans bra when you are ready to hit the dancefloor at night.

Denim Is Not Just For The Summers

Looking for pointers on how to invite this summery staple into your trans-seasonal wardrobe? Sara Ali Khan knows how—worn head-to-toe for a boardroom-ready addition to your workwear wardrobe.
