Back to work style guide

For many of us, the past two years have been spent in the safety and comfort of our own homes. Consistently showing up to Zoom meetings in a nice blouse paired with pajama pants - it is no surprise that we are actually excited to return to the office! However, with such a significant amount of time away, it can be hard to remember what to wear. We are here today to refresh your memory and ensure you feel confident to slay your days back in the office.

Casual Chic : Soleste series

With the warm weather around, you simply can’t go past a simple black midi dress for your back-to-work wardrobe. Choose a fabric and shape you feel most comfortable in and go forth! Pair it with the Soleste or Soleste Continental. The Soleste bags are the epitome of effortless chic, helping you to achieve that classy look with minimal effort required.

Business Hours : Bank series

If your workplace is considered to be more corporate, we suggest a more structured, formal look. An outfit that is always top of mind for this sector is a matching tailored suit. This could include a blazer and tailored pants or pencil skirt, paired with a simple blouse and of course, killer accessories. The Bank bag is the ultimate corporate companion, staying in line with the dress code yet providing endless flair.

Core Classics : Eight series

Here at X NIHILO, we think of smart casual as something that is suitable for the workplace, that is also fresh and stylish enough to stay in for Friday night drinks with the girls. Here, the Eight series have got to be your pick. Match it with your favorite black pumps, a simple blouse, straight-leg pants and you are good to go!

One-Step Luxury : Serene series

A fun mash-up of corporate and smart casual, business casual takes on the shape and structure of formal wear but allows you to breathe and have a bit more fun. Think linen blazer and midi skirt with a knit tank top and the Serene bag.


Carry ALL : Fifth Avenue series

Inspired in New York City. Designed in Bondi Beach. We have engineered your new go-to bag, crafted from beautifully durable canvas and rolled leather handles.

The Fifth Avenue Tote has all the hallmarks of an ‘It' bag - it's chic, functional, and looks great in photos. It's made from hard-wearing canvas and has rolled leather handles, meaning it is ready for any task that may come its way. The spacious single interior section offers more than enough room for your day-to-day essentials, from your diary and laptop to a spare set of shoes. 

Best of luck!
Sending you bags of love xx
