What is Hybrid Workwear?

There's no doubt about it, the pandemic has changed the way we dress for work. With a lot of companies adopting a hybrid approach, with some days spent working from home and others in the office, workers are adopting their own hybrid approach to dressing. This has meant a shift in people's attitudes to dressing, with comfort being a top priority. So what does this mean for business wear? We explore hybrid workwear and how you can make it work for you.

 

Fabrics

 

 

There's nothing quite like wearing a suit or other garment made from a beautiful, soft fabric that glides on. Having stiff, unrelenting fabrics that aren't breathable and irritate the skin is no longer on the menu for hybrid workwear. People are opting for luxurious fabrics that drape well and feel great. That could be a pair of bamboo trousers, or a cashmere overcoat. It might even be a suit made in our Sherry Stretch range, which is wool blended with 2% lycra, for added movement. There are so many options to help you feel comfortable, while still looking smart for a day at the office or a video call from home.

 

Shirts

 

 

A shirt is a quick, classic way to look smart. Even without a tie, they can instantly rejuvenate your look and make you feel more sleek. There are so many options for a bespoke shirt, from the colour, to the cuffs, the buttons and the type of collar. All of these elements and the fit, make it a great choice for a staple piece of work wear. You could opt for a range of colours and styles to keep your look fresh for each day of hybrid working.

 

Jackets

 

 

While many people have enjoyed casual dressing for the last couple of years, we have seen many clients who are looking to smarten things up. A great way to do this is with the addition of a jacket. It can give any outfit a bit of structure, without feeling too formal. Paired with a contrasting pair of suit trousers, chinos or cords gives an air of laid back elegance - very sprezzatura

 

Fit

 

 

After a long time spent in casual wear, there is definitely a move away from more constrictive clothing. Fits are more relaxed. You can either do this with a casual jacket and a looser-fit on a pair of trousers or you could opt to have a suit made with wide-leg trousers and a less fitted jacket. Voluminous silhouettes have definitely been spotted on the catwalks for some time now and they don't seem to be going anywhere fast!
