For the past 18 months (not that we’re counting), many of us haven’t had to think all that hard about what we’re wearing or how we’re presenting ourselves at work. As remote work became the new norm for many, we traded in our trousers and blazers for sweatpants and hoodies, plus the occasional blouse for Zoom meetings.

Now that offices are opening back up, however, with many moving to a hybrid work model, it’s a great opportunity to transition out of your roster of comfortable loungewear and revisit your workwear wardrobe. No matter where you end up working from, RW&CO. has an outfit that’s perfect for any location and occasion, as the Canadian fashion staple helps take some of the guesswork out of the evolving business-casual landscape.

In partnership with RW&CO., here’s a full workweek's worth of outfit inspiration to help you curate a wardrobe that’s every bit as flexible as this new work model.

Monday: Layer up

While saying goodbye to summer is always hard, fall really is the best season, especially for fashion. Make the most of layering season with a cozy look that borrows from an autumnal colour palette: Think warm reds, mustard yellows, clean creams and everything jewel-toned.

Take advantage of the cooler weather by pairing a chic, lightweight transitional puffer jacket over top a turtleneck sweater to keep you warm and looking sharp. Finish off your look with a pair of black pull-on pants that feel just like the leggings you’re used to wearing, only elevated for workwear, and are made of a comfy stretch-knit fabric with flattering slanted front pockets.

SHOP IT: Quilted Hooded Parka, Ribbed Turtleneck Tunic Sweater, Knitted Mid-Rise Jogger Pant

Tuesday: Dress to impress

If you’ve missed getting suited up for work, you’re in luck. This look is perfect for the corporate girl, or for a confidence boost when heading into your first big presentation back. It’s easy to dress to impress with modern-day suiting, like this jogger pant and matching blazer, which provides all-day comfort that’s relaxed in fit and polished in look. Pair it with the iconic RWResponsible turtleneck, made from fibers derived from certified renewable wood using an eco-responsible production process, so you can feel good about what you’re wearing — and look good too.

SHOP IT: Long Fitted Two-Tone Blazer, Classic Turtle Neck Sweater, Two-Tone Jogger Ankle Pant

Wednesday: Effortlessly trendy

There’s a reason why blue jeans and a crisp white T-shirt continues to be the ultimate cool girl uniform. While it may not always be office-appropriate, depending on where you work, there’s an easy way to take that foundation and level it up for the office. Pair a basic white tee (made from ethically sourced EcoCosy viscose) with a black-and-white houndstooth shacket — one of the leading trend pieces to have this season. Finally, swap out your jeans for a pair of four-way stretch joggers. They’re easy to pull on, light and stretchy, with a dressy, polished vibe that’s perfect as you ease back into office life.

SHOP IT: Flannel Overshirt Blouse, Elbow-Sleeve Knit Crew-Neck T-Shirt, Knit Pleated Jogger With Drawstring (Shop the complete look here)

Thursday: Perfectly business-casual

The perfect business casual look that’ll take you from workday to weekend is headlined by a versatile staple: an olive green boucle tweed cropped jacket. It’s the perfect way to not only play with layers but with lengths and textures, too. Layer it overtop a classic oversized button-down white shirt (a must-have in any wardrobe), paired with relaxed-fitting denim like a light wash jogger pant, made of stretch denim for extra comfort. They’re perfect when you’re planning to spend the day at your desk, whether that’s in the office or at home.

SHOP IT: Casual Crop Blazer, Twill Buttoned Blouse With Pocket, Light Wash Denim Jogger Pant

Friday: Hello, sweater weather

Fall is synonymous with sweater weather, and with ample choice in both colour and knit patterns, it’s easier than ever to find a style that works for you, regardless of where you happen to be working from. (A nice sweater is the perfect thing to throw on for those surprise video calls while working from home.) Play with pattern by pairing an oversized striped shirt underneath a cozy knit, available in dark green, cream, blue, and on-trend hues like mint green and soft orange. Then complete the autumn-worthy look with black fitted leggings that combine a relaxed fit with dressier city style.

SHOP IT: Spongy Funnel Neck Tunic With Pointelle Sleeves, Twill Buttoned Blouse With Pocket, Long Solid Black City Legging Pant
