4 M&S Essentials We’ll Be Wearing to Work From Now On

So long, summer. It was nice knowing you. Well, perhaps this goodbye is a little hasty, but after a bumpy start and an unforgettable heatwave, we now find ourselves in the transitional in-between—a confusing state of greying skies but muggy weather. Until we’re firmly in the throes of winter dressing, it’s time to get clever with what we’re wearing for the pre-fall season. As back-to-school looms, we’re also back to the office (at least, those of us who managed to get a holiday), and while we’re packing away our swimwear for another year, we’re also restocking our wardrobes in anticipation of a cosy autumn. But whenever we shop, it’s important to think smart about what will serve our wardrobes best, and investing in versatile pieces is always a goo...

This Summer Workwear Capsule Will Make You Look Polished on the Hottest Days

You certainly don’t need a lot of pieces, just a few key items you can rotate and combine in different ways will see you through the warmer months. Not only will an edit like this keep you looking chic, but once you have a few reliable outfits nailed down it will also eliminate any stress of choosing a look on rushed, hot-weather mornings, which is always a plus.  After a lot of research among my friends and fellow editors, and a deep dive through many new-in sections to find the most polished, efficient pieces, below I’ve pulled together a summer workwear capsule I think any wardrobe would benefit from. It’s full of lightweight-linens and breezy pieces, but nothing see-through. And the best part is that the items are versatile enough to be styled up in different ways for weeken...

4 Versatile Workwear Looks That Will Keep You Chic in a Heatwave

When it comes to summer workwear, the onus is on textiles. Workwear isn’t always associated with the most breathable of fabrics. Typically, power dressing alludes to heavily tailored mixes, single-breasted blazers and pinstripes. Growing up, I’d watch films like Baby Boom in awe. The female protagonists with their weighty padded shoulders and bulging briefcases symbolised the high-powered working woman. Although the attire was of that time, it’s what I considered typical workwear. School-uniform dressing didn’t help either. We’re conditioned into thinking that clothing should look and feel a certain way to be deemed smart. Although those items have their place, there’s an opportunity to make your workwear as fruitful as your off-duty looks. There’s no rule of thumb when it comes to wo...

These Summer Work Outfits Are So Chic You’ll Wear Them At Weekends Too

When it comes to summer workwear, the onus is on textiles. Workwear isn’t always attributed to the most breathable of fabrics.

The female protagonists with their weighty padded shoulders and bulging briefcases symbolised the high-powered working woman.

5 Outfits That Are Perfect for the Office

After over a year of working from home and inching closer to normalcy once again, our team at Who What Wear has been thinking about our back-to-office outfits when dressing on a daily basis is a thing again. What can we say? We miss our clothes. We may not know the exact date that’ll mark our NYC and L.A. returns, but there’s no harm in a little optimism in dressing. After all, this story idea started when I bought an on-sale Nanushka skirt simply because I considered it a necessity for my back-to-work dream outfit.  It’s safe to say the outfits my fellow editors put together got me excited because after months of seeing each other on Zoom in mostly loungewear, I’m living for their elevated fashion game. From heeled boots to platfo...

Leaked testimony from Haiti suspects says plan was to arrest, not kill president

A group of Colombians and Haitian Americans suspected of assassinating Haitian President Jovenel Moise told investigators they were there to arrest him, not kill him, the Miami Herald and a person familiar with the matter said on Sunday. Moise was shot dead early on Wednesday at his Port-au-Prince home by what Haitian authorities say was a unit of assassins made up of 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans, plunging the troubled Caribbean nation into deeper turmoil. The murder and uncertainty about who hatched the plot is the latest in a succession of blows to hit the struggling country, which has appealed for international help. Washington has so far rebuffed Haiti’s request for troops, though a senior U.S. official said on Sunday that Washington was sending a technical team to assess th...

Gary Lineker urges Three Lions to ‘treasure’ Euro 2020 final

Gary Lineker has urged the England players to “treasure and enjoy” Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against Italy – but believes it is just the beginning and success will soon come even if they are beaten at Wembley. Gareth Southgate’s side are preparing for their first major tournament final in 55 years, something not even Lineker achieved during his time as a Three Lions player. The former Tottenham, Everton and Barcelona forward also praised the players for the showing a “shining social conscience” off the field which represents the “very best” of England. In an open letter to the England team in the Players’ Tribune, Lineker said: “I wish I was playing with you. This is the sort of occasion you dream about as a player. And honestly, it’s much less nerve-racking out on the pitch than in the sta...

Imo PDP chieftain joins APC

Mr Hillary Ugochukwu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Ugochukwu, a former senatorial aspirant of the party, announced his defection at a reception organised in his honour by the state leaders of the APC in Owerri on Saturday. Ugochukwu lauded Gov.

He said he registered with the APC in his home ward in Ogwa in Mbaitoli Local Government Area (LGA) of the state before his advancement to the state level. ”After careful thought and due consulta...

Nigerians urged to reject PIB for failing to address key issues

Socially relevant and need-meeting organisations in partnership with civil society movements have called on Nigerians to massively reject the long-expected PIB as it has failed to address fundamental issues. Rather the organisations said that the outcome of PIB was mischievous and would compound the problems of the communities, just as it would create another avenue to make the rich even richer while the suffering communities continue to languish in difficulty and poverty. The coalition group said the PIB “failed to properly address the lingering issues of the oil and gas host communities” submitting that the recent position on critical issues is a far cry from the yearnings of oil and gas host communities. “The current version of the Petroleum Industry Bill failed to address community, ec...

Nigerian asks resident doctors, health workers to withdraw strike notices

The Federal Government has directed the National Association of Resident Doctors and the Joint Health Sector Unions to withdraw their strike notices immediately. The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this at a news conference in Abuja on Friday. Ngige was addressing newsmen at the end of a meeting with the Presidential Committee on Salaries, relevant Federal Government stakeholders and health sector professional associations and trade unions. He said that the Federal Government was recently issued notice of trade disputes by NARD and JOHESU. “I told them to withdraw because it is arm-twisting. It is not allowed in International Labour Organisation Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiation. So, we expect them to withdraw those notices they gave. “JOHESU gave 15-day ulti...
