Last week at Sydney Fashion Week, the sartorial set flocked to the Resort 2022 shows. And because it’s winter down there, street style photos revealed showgoers sporting layers and sharp but soft tailoring combined with smart, commuter-friendly accessories. For us back in New York, the images served as the ultimate inspiration for our imminent return to the office this fall.
There were plenty of tailored trousers, a relaxed yet polished look that bodes well for a comfortable transition out of work from home, and a handful of lovely oversized blazers—a true office staple. And per those down in Sydney, we don’t have to give up our leggings just yet, so long as we choose a more elevated pair like one with slits on the hem. On the accessory front, chic, oversized tote bags that can also carry your laptop are a must and sneakers are still cool, especially when paired with a striped blouse and white pants. Block heel and slingback pumps are also making a triumphant return.
