These Are the Outfits Vogue Editors Will Wear When We (One Day!) Get Back to the Office
As we at Vogue surpass 18 months since we packed up our cubicles and made working from home the new norm, there’s a longing to get back. By now though, some of us are back, some of us are part-time and others are only making appearances via Zoom. But no matter everyone’s setup, thoughts on what to wear to work are running through our minds.
Each Vogue editor certainly has their own distinct style, but there’s a clear common thread of optimism in all of our post-wfh mood boards. With hopeful hearts, we’re preparing to say goodbye to wearing loungewear pieces on Zoom and hello to getting dressed up for face-to-face meetings. But of course, things will never completely be the same—we’ve all discovered some incredibly comfortable yet fashionable garments we’re likely not going to part with just yet.
It seems the Vogue consensus is to bring some of those elevated, easygoing wardrobe essentials with us once we all return to the World Trade Center. Executive Fashion Director Rickie De Sole is looking forward to adding a comfortable pair of jeans to her work wardrobe for the first time, and Senior Beauty Editor Lauren Valenti is relying on the polished touch of soft suiting. Pondering your own office return? You’ll find plenty of inspiration from my fashionable colleagues, below.

What could be better for dropping temperatures than a sumptuous matching sweater and skirt set? Altuzarra’s Spring-Summer collection, expertly styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, was a master class in matching sets, and this pink number immediately jumped out at me. Anyone who knows me knows that I am constantly wrapped in a blanket at the office, so I plan on snuggling up in this outfit when the office is somehow colder than the outdoors. A pair of lug sole boots, matching brown belt, and gem-toned earring will push this otherwise summery outfit into fall territory.
