No matter how unique our styles are, it’s considered professional conduct to tone it down at work, especially if you’re at a 9 to 5 corporate job. Despite being an activewear brand, Titika’s fall 2015 collection offers some surprisingly professional pieces, that can be dressed up appropriately for a day in the office. We’ve done some digging through Titika’s Fall 2015 collection, and picked out 5 pieces that’ll take the working girl from business to fitness, then back to fitness.
The Piper Sweater is a great staple to keep in your closet, and a great choice for the office. The acrylic and cotton material is thin enough to layer under a blazer or a jacket. The coral or light pink option would offer a stylish pop of colour under a black or grey blazer, without being too ‘out there’.
The Floyd Sweater is a geometric colour blocked tunic sweater. This works particularly well for a shorter body type, because you can wear this piece as a dress! Wear on top of a pair of black tights and sleek fall boots and you’ll have your go-to for a cozy autumn sweater.
In every office environment I’ve ever worked in, someone is always commenting on the temperature – it’s either too hot, too drafty, or too cold or just plain freezing. Rise above the petty complaints and keep this soft-knit Talula Sweater on the back of your chair. Available in black and grey, the versatility of this piece knows no boundaries, and the next time it’s ‘too drafty’ or ‘too cold’ at the office, you’ll be glad you have this with you.
To top off your outfit, the menswear inspired Brantly Coat has a double breasted collar which gives it a more formal look. This coat is perfect for layering over either the Piper or Telly sweater to help keep the autumn chills away.
Finally, who says a sports bra can only be for sports?! Titika has a large selection of sports bras which are comfy enough to wear on a day-to-day basis. This is especially relevant for those of you who catch a yoga class on your lunch break, or hit the gym straight after work: it means you’re already halfway dressed for your workout and don’t have to go through the hassle of packing another bra for your routine. Unlike the gym, no one will see your cute bra at your office job, but we know it’s what’s inside that counts.
