Coats and Jackets

The type of coat or jacket that’s best for you will rely heavily on the type of commute you take each day. For those who do a lot of walking in crowds or spend a lot of time on foot, you’ll need to ensure you’re protected against the English showers which will no doubt fall whilst ensuring your jacket is lightweight enough to not cause too much of a sweat before you’ve even started your working day. A Mac or Trench is a great option which ticks all these boxes as a lightweight weather-ready coat.

Shoes

Another one where acceptable office style and practicality can feel like they clash, with many choosing to swap a classic sports trainer with a brogue or smart show once arriving at the office. However, according to the Telegraph, trainers are becoming far more acceptable in the office with a ‘smart trainer’ with a simple, sleek design being the perfect hybrid to still add a touch of professionalism to a comfy shoe.

Shirts and T-shirts

If you’re wearing a smart trouser to the office, then you have a number of ways to keep your commute comfortable with your choice of top. Farah shirts have long been great options for the office, but making simple changes like undoing your top button and losing the tie for your commute will help you stay a bit cooler for longer, whatever your commute. A slim-fitting shirt in a bold colour such as those from https://www.ejmenswear.com/men/farah will look smart enough without a suit jacket, meaning you can lose one less layer for your commute too.

Commuting to and from work can feel like a thankless and monotonous task, so it’s good to add some style changes into your wardrobe and try to dress to make the commute as comfortable as possible without losing the professionalism you want your style to say about you in the office.
