Workwear: How to Dress to Impress

Was securing that promotion your New Year’s resolution? Or maybe you’ve recently started a new job. Whether you fall into one of these categories or you’re staying put, it’s always worth dressing well in the office.

So we’ve made it easy for you to look indispensable at work with our essential weekday picks from our Howick Tailored collection.

It was around 150 years ago that men started wearing suits as workwear in this country, so a suit is a good place to start. The subtle pinstripe differentiates this Howick single breasted suit and the charcoal shade means you can wear it in the evening and still look stylish.


A crisp shirt is an absolute essential – go for bold colours and stripes to add interest.


Complete the look with a co-ordinating stripe tie.

This mac is the most stylish way to maintain your polished appearance when it’s raining. And don’t forget an umbrella for those downpours.

Finally, don’t forget the accessories. Your look wouldn’t be complete without a slick wallet and briefcase as well as a suit cover to keep your suit pristine on business trips.
