A fresh approach to winter workwear


From the way you feel to the way you’re dressed, the fresher you feel when you arrive at the office, the more confidence you’ll have in your ability to tackle the day. 

So don’t think of your work wardrobe as a prison uniform with rules enforcing that you can’t show any personality, and only dull colours and outdated styles are allowed. Most workplaces are pretty relaxed in 2016, and even if they’re not, we've got ways to get around improving your office winter wardrobe. Here’s a few tips to look fresh at work this winter, and don’t forget your Smint mints to keep your breath smelling fresh too.

Shape up 

There's nothing worse than an ill-fitting suit that sags at the shoulders and covers half your hands. Add a modern edge to your workwear tailoring with cropped trousers, an easy way to emphasise a strong sock and shoe combo.


TOPMAN Heavy Cord Cropped Trousers, £40.00

Stand out 

Can't wear bright colours? Then find an alternative way to stand out with your blazer, such as adding a subtle check print or retro double breasted fit, both interesting enough to translate into your after work drinks outfit by swapping your smart shirt and trousers for a t-shirt and jeans.


M&S Collection luxury coat, £199

Dress down

When it comes to footwear, there's never been a bigger style revolution than wearing sleek white trainers with a suave suit. It shouldn't work, but it really does. Just swap your shirt and tie for something more casual, like a sports inspired zipped polo top.


TOPMAN Reflective Stripe White Leather Trainers, £65.00

To boot

But if your office does has the strict standards to that of North Korea, a sartorial footwear update that can handle the harsh winter conditions and also boast smartness is the brogue boot, that can be worn with your work suit and your weekend pub attire.


M&S NORTH COAST Leather Chukka Heel Boots, £69

Warm up 

Your boss a right Scrooge who won't switch the heating on? Well you could sue him, but if you want to keep your job and avoid all that hassle you could just layer a waffle textured jumper in a strong winter colour (think burning red or orange) over your shirt and just look suave as hell.


Get knitted

Knitwear doesn't have to stop at your jumper either. Update your boring old striped tie for a knitted one for a toned down to Sixties British mod culture.

A fresh approach with Smint 


Smint, great tasting sugar-free mints, deliver a fresh state of mind and a boost in confidence. With 40 mints per dispenser or 50 mints per tin, you can feel reassured that wherever you are, whatever the occasion and whatever you are wearing, you will be facing everything head on. Available in Peppermint, Spearmint and Strawberry flavours (all sugar-free), feel confident to take a fresh approach to winter fashion together with Smint.
