This Is Power Dressing in 2021

In partnership with our friends at Balmain

After a year’s worth of fixing Wi-Fi glitches, blundering through you’re-on-mute blips, and nailing the waist-up fit, it’s safe to say that the WFH code has been cracked. But just because you mean business doesn’t mean you have to look all business, at home or otherwise. As a matter of fact, the sophisticates at Balmain know a thing or two about dressing the part while feeling comfortable and composed and totally at ease whatever your vibe—no corner office required.

IF YOUR STYLE SKEWS…

  1. CLASSIC WITH
    A TWIST

    Nothing says “I call the shots” quite as emphatically as a sharply tailored blazer. Work a pair of laid-back cotton pants into the equation, add the soft tee you’ve lived in since last March, and the net effect is equal parts relaxed and polished.

  1. HYPERFEMININE

    Springing for sweet details is like ordering a chocolate croissant with your coffee: You’ll never regret it. Play up humble fabrics with feminine frills and hints of pastel. And for client catch-ups or lunch with the coworkers, there’s always a gorgeous gilded heritage bag to bring with.

  1. MODERN AND MINIMAL

    The most streamlined way set yourself up for success? With sleek separates that look put-together and feel like a crisp poplin dream. Go for leather slip-ons, a matching crossbody (the 1945 bag: iconique), and in true minimalist form, a set of falsies to seal the deal on that subdued no-makeup makeup look.

  1. EFFORTLESS
    AND CHIC

    Whether you’re team jeans or not, nothing beats the one-and-done allure of a denim jumpsuit. As for the accessories, you know what to do: laptop-friendly tote, lipstick-red ballet flats (how French of you), and chunky gold, naturally.
