Best Officewear, Creative

  • Mayle

    2420 Elizabeth St., 212-941-7210

    The phrase “creative officewear” sounds like an invitation for co-worker mockery unless you’ve ventured into Mayle, where luscious sand-washed printed silks, silk crêpes, and wool classics are fashioned into a modern, slightly quirky yet professional look. Mayle’s Carolina top ($425) paired with the Uberta pant in navy stripe ($475) can enlighten a fatigued work wardrobe. The Stella leather jacket ($825) and cotton-and-linen Spiagga striped Elba pant ($395) will complement spring basics and march directly into summer. There’s a new shoe collection to complete the look. The best office styles: the Esmerelda ($415) and the Netting ($395).
