In an age where Silicon Valley’s finest wear hoodies to work, it’s fair to say that traditional dress codes are becoming a thing of the past. However, this relaxing of the rules works both ways, and pieces and prints that were once a cornerstone of the corporate closet are making their way into our everyday wardrobes. Case in point: the skirt suit. A checked two-piece might say ‘boardroom’ at first glance, but team it with preppy white loafers and a burgundy turtleneck and it makes for a compellingly retro outfit. After dark, add a baguette bag, Studio 54-style graphic earrings and kitten heels for an enviably stylish – and strictly out-of-office – evening look.
