Heading back to work at the start of a new year is the perfect time to hit reset on your look. Invest wisely in additions that are timeless, comfortable, and, most of all, fill a gap in your wardrobe. During the warmer months, opt for lightweight linens and cottons, as well as slouchy tailoring that allows for a bit of breathing room.

Neutral colours and classic patterns, like stripes or plaid, will never date. But that’s not to say that a jolt of colour or joyous print should be overlooked — indulging in dopamine dressing might be just the thing to help you transition back into the working year with ease.
