In recent years, two elements of our wardrobes have received unprecedented spotlight. Firstly, the loungewear revolution, where matching sets in ribbed jersey took the decision-making out of dressing. Then, there was the vacation revival: with our rediscovered zeal for wanderlust, our suitcases overflowed with floaty maxis and crisp linen. But one sartorial segment has gone a little neglected—our office attire.
Depending on where you fall on the introvert/extrovert spectrum, you’ll be forlornly—or enthusiastically—waving farewell to the upper-half-only work outfit, which became symbolic of the Zoom conference era. Yes, therein lay an epoche when what you wore out of frame was nobody’s business—come baggy sweatpants, pajama bottoms, or simply your birthday suit (hey, you do you—and what your boss doesn’t know can’t hurt her).
So, like our in-many-cases revamped 9-to-5, our office wardrobe needs a breath of fresh air, too. Wait—someone’s calling the work phone, and it’s Luisaviaroma. You’re going to want to take this.
As you’ll know, at Luxe Digital we’re big fans of the Italian online shopping destination, where the finest brands are always ready to elevate your wardrobe with a little Italian flair.
Say a cheery Buongiorno to Luisaviaroma’s New Formal Edit, a curated collection that’ll have you filling your schedule with face-to-face appointments—even if it’s just to show off your outfit.
Revive your AM ritual
Indeed, Luisaviaroma’s gorgeous edit (men and women are both catered for, don’t worry,) eases you back into the office groove with the utmost elegance. Infusing joy back into your morning ritual, their office-ready pieces make selecting your outfit of the day an experience to savor and appreciate.
Whether you’re dressing for a Monday chock-full of meetings or prepping for a desk-to-dancefloor Friday, Luisaviaroma has just what you’re looking for. Even better: it’s all in one place. Being back in the office often means we have less free time to play with (boo), so save precious hours by browsing online, and having your brand-new work wardrobe delivered right to your door.
Echoing the world-famous grace and sophistication of its HQ city, Florence, Luisaviaroma curates the most exquisite pieces. Thus, they generously gift everybody Italy’s most coveted export (after wine and espresso, naturally)—and that is: pure, effortless style.
Dress for the job you want
With shades and styles for every taste, you can opt for monochrome pieces with which mix-and-match is always a match, play peacock with patterns, and add layer to your look with textures. And, of course, no outfit is truly complete with carefully-chosen accessories: level-up with statement earrings, go sleek and chic with subtle silver, or cinch in your silhouette with an understated leather belt. The choice—and the day—is yours for the taking.
So, after a shop around Luisaviaroma, you’ll be inspired to take the same level of care with your Monday to Friday attire as you do with your Saturday night cocktails get-up. That means you’ll strut into the office, mirroring the air of confidence you exude when you enter the party—you’ll own the room, and everybody will know it.

Preppy in cut but smart enough to look polished, this T-shirt will have you calling, conferencing, and coding in comfort. And, if the day calls for more formality, there’s nothing stopping you from peeking a collar out, too.
