After months of trialling lockdown loungewear — from linen to tie-dye and countless gym leggings — polished and put-together looks feel like a thing of the past. But with a return to the office on the cards, you might want to think about giving your workwear wardrobe a much-needed overhaul. An easy way to elevate your tired office attire? Add some super refined accessories, à la Prada.
Curated with the Middle East in the mind, Prada has just dropped a dedicated collection of shoes, handbags and accessories in boutiques across the GCC. A fast track to promoting your worn workwear or summer wardrobe, the exclusive collection features mules in soft leather, iconic noughties bags reimagined in sophisticated fabrics and teeny-tiny accessories that offer a glimpse into the AW20 collection.
If you’re in need of some back-to-work motivation, here are five accessories to shop now and stroll into the office with on Sunday morning.
The Re-Imagined It Bag: Prada’s iconic Re-Edition bag is now available in regional stores in sleek saffiano leather. The silhouette comes with a removable chain strap, which is perfect for dressing up after hours.
The Sophisticated Sling-Backs: Wear these desk shoes with a silk slip skirt or tailored suit, in tones of caramel, cappuccino and vanilla. Guaranteed to perk up your summer work wardrobe.
The Office-Appropriate Frames: Leave your pink tinted heart-shaped frames for the pool and walk into work with a polished pair of lenses. The accessory is sure to add some flair to boardroom greys, but remains professional.
The Fabulous Flats: Fall for chic comfort in the form of Prada’s flat mules in soft nappa leather; whether in classic black or sumptuous sea green. Practical and pretty, wear the slip-on style with wide leg trousers or an oversized shirt, for extra comfort.
The Lunch-Sized Carrier: If a phone, a lipstick and a break time snack is all you need, then this top handle handbag is made for you. Pair this saffiano-adorned carrier with Bermuda shorts and a co-ordinating blazer.
The Perfect Pair of Pumps: If you’re looking for a timeless pair of pointed-toe soles, that have wear-with-anything appeal, opt for these glossy pumps and put on your best power suit for Sunday.
