How To Wear African Print In The Office

If you're familiar with the Grass-Fields origin story (which you can read here), you will know that we reject the outdated narrative of office-wear consisting of white button-up shirts, black pants and grey blazers. I mean, you do you, boo! After all, there's something for everyone. But Grass-Fields truly began when co-founder Christelle was told that her style was too bold, too vibrant for the workplace. We work to undo this narrative, and show that you can look professional whilst wearing bright African prints. 

This week, we have released two brand new pant suits, which inspired us to gather together all our favourite work-wear pieces still available on our website! Many of these pieces are available in a variety of colours and patterns, so be sure to shop around if you see something you like!

 

Blazer & Pant Sets: Chloe & Nakia

Two brand new arrivals (released today), our pant suits are the epitome of everything we represent. The tailored blazers will fit your curves perfectly, while the pants are slightly high-waisted for the most flattering fit! These pieces can be worn seperately - the pants would look great with a white frill shirt, and the blazers are super versatile; a black tank and some dark jeans or slim-fit trousers would be great for a more understated look. But to really get maximum impact, we recommend wearing the full set - professional, stylish and guaranteed to turn heads in the office!

 

Oversized Shirt: Masika, Chidi, Imani

Our oversized shirts are available in 3 patterns, and while they're relatively versatile in how they can be worn, for work we'd recommend tucking them in to some high waisted black slim-fit trousers (or jeans if your workplace allows it!). They bring a new dimension to the traditional 'shirts in the workplace' policy.

 

Jumpsuits: Leena, Muneri

Our jumpsuits are some of our bestsellers, but we understand that not all of them are exactly work-appropriate. The Leena is a perfect example of modest yet stylish, with puffed sleeves and a detachable belt providing a cinched-in waist for the ultimate boss look.

 

Midi Dress: Amara & Neta

These semi-fitted midi dresses are smart and sophisticated, with button fastening down the front and a detachable belt. This is perfect as it isn't too business-like, making it ideal for after work drinks too!

 

Shirt Dress: Candice, Zarah, Mila & Nora

These gathered shirt dresses are all about the finer details! The fitted skirt is modest and super flattering, but what really makes this dress stand out is the gathered effect and detailing on the front. Pair with a satchel and some block heels and you're good to go!

 

Pencil Skirt: Pendeza & Audrey

Part of a matching set, these skirts are ideal for any occasion! To really get the most out of them in the workplace, we recommend taking the skirt and pairing it with a detailed white blouse to create a very cute office-friendly outfit. Again, this would completely hold up for after-work drinks too. 

 

Pants: Senami, Belina & Chellie

Did someone ask for a statement piece? Our frill pants did not come to play. The asymmetrical ruffled leg adds a stylish flair to a structured fit. The gorgeous muted colour tones in the Senami make them our pick for this post, but they are available in 2 other patterns too. Perfect to wear with a black or white blouse, these pants are sure to make you stand out in the best way possible!
