After over a year of working from home, the office is beckoning for many of us.

Perhaps you're already back a few days a week, or in the process of your employer unveiling their 'return to the office' plan - either way, the only certainty is that none of us know what to wear.

It's been a year of working in our comfies and, for a long while, work attire felt like a thing of the past.

However, there's no need to panic, we've scouted out six pieces to add to your wardrobe now and feel good in at the office for years to come. 

6 staples to upgrade your work wardrobe

1. Wide Leg Trousers | £25 from Marks & Spencer

Available in black, charcoal and dark navy, these comfortable, loose-fitting trousers have revolutionised the office trews of yesteryear. 

It's easy to pair them with a relaxed fit blouse or a T-shirt for a weekend look, too. 

2. Flexifit™ Non Wired Full Cup Bra A-E | £20 from Marks & Spencer

A comfortable bra is an essential part of any workwear wardrobe - it has to stay on for over eight hours, but also, it has to keep you feeling supported while you're dashing between meetings.

Slip on this full-coverage Flexifit Bra from Marks & Spencer and enjoy a barely-there feel, with no wiring or padding.

3. Broderie Ruffle Cotton Shirt | £90 from Boden

We adore this delicately detailed shirt - it's fashion-forward and feminine but still says you mean business. 

Plus, we'd wear it with a pair of jeans or a midi-skirt for an off-duty look, too. 

4. Reiss Hayes Wool Blend Cropped Blazer | £230 from John Lewis

Cut a clean figure in Reiss' new Hayes blazer, with a chic cropped fit and made from a warming wool blend, it's a piece you'll be able to wear all year round. 

5. Harriet Black Suede Mules | £70.20 (Was £195) from L.K. Bennett

You don't get much more chic than a pair of mules - they're an easy way to upgrade tired, old workwear pieces if you don't want to splash out, and they'll take you from the office to the pub with ease. 

6. Column Maxi T-Shirt Dress | £32 from Next

Available in no less than six colours, this comfortable dress will see you through the hardest days and makes getting up the morning a doddle.
