Petro’s Back-To-Work Essentials

Edited By

As summer begins to wind down, now is the time to ease yourself back into the 9-to-5. But it needn’t be a grind; instead, consider it the perfect opportunity to reinvigorate your routine, rediscover your workwear wardrobe and invest in a few mood-lifting essentials that will help you get back into the swing of things in style. These are the items on Petro’s wish list.

“I am obsessed with Loewe’s many beautiful bags, but particularly the Flamenco. It’s perfect for carrying all my daily essentials, and I love this khaki colourway.”
“I’m fuelled by tea, and drinking it from a great mug is a small daily joy that I savour.”
“I like a wallet that’s easy to find in my bag, so I always opt for a larger clutch-like style. This woven version is so smart.”
“A simple, chic bracelet that goes with everything.”
“I’ll wear the jacket and trousers together and separately, so this suit is a great investment.”
“I always have this hydrating mist on my desk for a quick spritz – it helps me beat the mid-afternoon slump.”
“Finding joy in the small things – like these cosy socks – is a great way to ease back into the 9-to-5.”
“I spend so much time at my desk, so it’s worth investing in beautiful pieces that live on it, like this lovely green lamp.”
“Who doesn’t love a classic loafer? This pair by Prada is just the right amount of chunky, and I love the rich chocolatey hue.”
“Interesting knitwear is a great way to revitalise my workwear wardrobe. I’ll wear this open-yarn knit with a tank underneath.”
“I truly believe that a nice notebook is good for the soul. I’ll be scribbling in this one from Smythson.”
“Tiny interior details are real mood-lifters for me – like this stylish tissue box cover.”
“You can’t beat a classic crew-neck tee.”
