Days spent on video calls and working from home has blurred the line between the traditional 9-5 dress code and casual wear. The past months has redefined work wear as we know it, replacing suit trousers and jeans with comfy loungewear, jersey shorts and athleisure.
Our edit this week centres on an all-versatile piece – leggings. With three different looks, we’ve decided to prove gym leggings really are one of the most adaptable garments in your ethical wardrobe.
Look 1: The New Working Dress Code
Our first look is all about merging classic work wear with casual dress. Pairing Organic Basic’s SilverTech Active Leggings with House Of Dagmar’s linen Charlotte Blazer provides the perfect WFH outfit. Linen’s breathable and sustainable qualities make it ideal for versatile, cross-seasonal wear. For more on why linen should be one of your go-to fabrics, take a look our The Fabric Your Closet Needs This Season: Linen Edition piece.
This look is both comfortable and completely on trend, in and out of the 9-5.

Look 2: The Classic White Shirt
Next up, one of the most versatile and timeless pieces in anyone’s wardrobe, the white shirt. Although traditionally paired with tailored trousers, why not make the change to the perfect pair of leggings? We recommend Girlfriend Collective’s High Waist 7/8 Leggings made with recycled polyester and plastic bottles. Pair with Arket’s Relaxed Poplin Shirt, Eileen Fisher’s Platform Slides and Vikele Studio’s Charlotte Bag for ultimate 90’s vibes.
For all things white shirt styling, take a look at our piece on Mastering The White Shirt While WFH.

Look 3: Get Autumn Ready With Ethical Knits
Despite the recent 30 degree sunshine, Autumn’s crisp air and falling orange leaves are just round the corner. And what’s better for a cool Autumnal day than the perfect ethical knit? This look is both effortless and full of pieces to be worn and styled time and again. We recommend BAM’s sustainable Bamboo Leggings worn with House Of Dagmar’s Bea Long oversized cardigan. Accessorise with Mint & Rose’s 90’s inspired sandals and Pippa Small’s handmade pendants to complete this effortless look.
