OFFICE PREP

If you’re heading back to the office and the thought of wearing a shirt and tie is about as appealing as shaving with razor wire – don’t stress! With the re-emergence of the Preppy look, the classic polo T-shirt has never been so popular. While golfers and prepsters have been sporting the neckline for years, it seems everyone is jumping on the polo bandwagon and the polo t-shirt has become acceptable attire in the workplace- particularly during the summer months.

Whether buttoned to the top and paired with a lightweight summer blazer or open at the neck with tailored trousers you’ll be stepping back into the workplace in style and comfort!
