AMPR KNOWS… What I’ll be wearing to work post lockdown

By Tara Burley

As we celebrate the end of our 6th lockdown in Melbourne, we are all longing to return to AMPR HQ. With only a few days until we’re back in the office, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, and accordingly, I’ve started to think about what I’ll be wearing to work.

Whilst I know I have enjoyed the comfort that rotating between my tracksuits and gym gear has provided, I am eager to get dressed up for face-to-face interactions again.

Contemplating your own office return? Here’s my 4 favourite easy-going, wardrobe essentials that I’ll be sporting back in the AMPR office this summer:


Oversized Boyfriend Blazers

 One of the most coveted fashion items this season – the oversized boyfriend blazer provides endless styling options to dress up your look for that Monday morning meeting. I love to pair it with a flowy, summer dress (when Melbourne weather allows!) or long line shorts for that perfect tailored suiting look. Option to keep it casual with your favourite sneakers, or dress it up with a pair of kitten heels.

Oversized Shirt (or dress!)

I am definitely one to go for the over-sized shirt look, particularly when I’m pressed for time getting ready in the morning, as it’s an easy-going ensemble that I can throw on in no time. Whether you’re pairing a classic pinstripe shirt with your favourite pair of denim or embracing a full-length shirt dress with open toe espadrilles – it’s a versatile staple that can be worn time and time again.

Silk skirts

Again, comfort is key for me. A silk skirt allows you to keep it comfortable, but also practical in a professional setting. With colour-blocking a key trend this season, I am excited to pair a bold, pastel slip skirt with a white tee or shirt. Few of my favourite inspiration looks here –

White Sneakers

Can’t bear the thought of tip toeing around the office in high heeled shoes? Me too. But do not fear, there is a very simple solution to rid you of your worries. The chic yet comfortable white sneaker will indeed become your new best friend.

With the driving force of streetwear and athleisure, two leading trends during COVID-19, it is evident there has been a major shift in what is considered ‘formal.’ It appears only natural to now opt for a sneaker. White sneakers can be worn with just about any work wardrobe staple. From suit pants and matching blazers, to long skirts and shirts, this wardrobe essential is sure to complete your look without the painful compromise.
