Summer style is effortless, fun and most of all comfortable, which is definitely needed especially on those hot and sometimes humid days. A seasonal favourite of most women poolside and also that’s become a big style trend this year on the fashion streets are two pieces. From bathing suits to top and pant sets, two pieces are dominating this summer’s style picks for all sorts of events like festivals, weddings, beach trips and even brunch. But with most two pieces being cropped or short sets, it can be a little hard to take this trend into the office. You know we love making the hottest trends work appropriate, so of course, we had to share our list of two pieces that you can wear to the office!
Little Ray Of Sunshine
Bring the sunshine into the office while you’re stuck inside for most of the day with this deep yellow pantsuit from Zara. The blazer is a peplum style, a great alternative to your classic blazer paired with a skinny trouser sitting at mid-waist. This set can be paired with nearly everything from a blouse or t-shirt to heels or a white sneaker and is a great investment as each piece can be worn both together or separately.
Casual Fridays don’t have to be boring with your typical t-shirt and jeans, and you can have fun with your outfits while still adhering to any dress codes. This casual two piece set from Boohoo is the perfect pick to wear not only to the office on Fridays but depending on your office culture can be dressed up with heels and accessorized to create a more polished look for the rest of the week.
Check Me Out
Another great power suit, combining a classic cut with one of our favourite pattern trends, is this one from Topshop. This is definitively a suit that you’ll keep in your wardrobe for years to come with its timeless style. The only downfall is this isn’t available at Canadian Topshop inside Hudson’s Bay, and will need to be ordered off the UK Topshop site. But between the perfect grey check pattern and the versatility of this set, we guarantee it’s worth it!
We’re all about sets that look just as great with your closet staples as they do together, and this kimono and wide leg trouser set from Pretty Little Thing could almost be the poster child for versatility. Putting aside all the outfits these could make with other wardrobe pieces, together alone you can get totally different looks by wrapping up the kimono to leaving it open with a top. The light chiffon material makes it perfect for those warm days while still being appropriately covered for the office.
Perfectly Pieced Together
Looking for a co-ord set that’s a little different from a two piece suit? Then this striped combo from ASOS is a must-have! A button and tie-up shirt which even though are cropped works perfectly for the office when paired with something high waisted, like it’s matching culotte bottoms. This cozy co-ord set is perfect for those Mondays where you’d rather wear your PJs into work and is sure to be a favourite summer long!
