The New WORKWEAR at THE SM STORE

Workwear has evolved through the years from Wall Street pinstripes to Silicon Valley casual.  With many more heading to the office after two years of WFH arrangements, welcome to the new world of workwear at SM Store.

Smart and Preppy. Mainstreet blazer, pants, and Baleno tee paired with a Salvatore Mann duffle bag, Hush Puppies loafers and a watch from SM Accessories.


Boardroom elegance. SM Woman vest dress worn with Antepara eyewear, a Parisian shoulder bag and platform shoes.


Like the new way of going to work, dressing up for the office is in a sense- hybrid. Some brands call it “power casual” or “business comfort”. Heels are lower, silhouettes are more relaxed, and Silicon Valley execs are said to be wearing graphic tees under blazers. And it’s the perfect time to give your office wardrobe a reboot and refresh with three new looks that from the SM Store that cross fashion boundaries – Minimalist, Preppy, and Workleisure.

Cool and casual. Baleno sports shirt, Code Blue jacket, Mainstreet pants, Salvatore Mann Sling bag and leather shoes. All available at SM Store’s Men’s Department.

Dress up for work comfortably and confidently with this SM Woman sleeveless blouse, vest, mini skirt matched with, a Parisian cross body bag and platform shoes, and a watch from SM Accessories.

Minimalist looks are best for more traditional office arrangements. It combines simplicity with elegance like SM Woman’s Prima collection worn with Parisian’s heels, pumps, bags and Raya’s set of earrings and necklaces. For men, there are dress shirts and pants from Baleno, Smyth, and Mainstreet; as well as shoes and bags from Milanos and Salvatore Mann.

Minimalist memo. Monochromatic satin blouse and pants from SM Woman paired with Raya jewelry and a Parisian bag.

Corporate basics – a dress shirt and slacks available at SM Store’s Men’s Department.


Preppy styles, on the other hand, highlight business comfort. Think relaxed cardigans and jackets, and slacks paired with sling bags, backpacks, duffle bags, leather shoes, loafers and watches for men.  There are also casual dresses, vests, and coordinates best paired with accessories watches, platform shoes, backless loafers, crossbody, sling and shoulder bags.

Contemporary classics. Mainstreet shirt, Baleno pants, Salvatore Mann Bag and Milanos shoes from SM Store’s Men’s Department.

Dress up for work wearing different pieces together that fall within the same color from the SM Woman Department.


Workleisure outfits underscore how lines have blurred between working and living by combining corporate style with an athleisure attitude many have embraced work. Think of women wearing blazers with sports bras, as well as more denim and sneaker sightings in the workplace.

Head back to the office comfortably with work leisure style outfits for men. Maxwear blazer, Baleno shirt, Mainstreet pants all paired with a leather clutch, and two-toned sneaker. All available at the SM Store.


Workleisure outfits combine corporate style with athleisure attitude like wearing blazers, shorts, active sports bras matched with nylon tote and sneakers from SM Store’s Woman’s Department.
