Looking for a faff-free workwear shopping experience without compromising on quality? Introducing No Ordinary Suit. Selecting pieces through a network of designers, No Ordinary Suit offers the simplicity of a work wardrobe but with interesting details and fits.
“In the past, I’ve found that it was a bloody hassle dressing for work. Sometimes, you really want someone’s opinion on what you should be wearing to your client meeting or what’s acceptable for an interview.” Explains founder Helena Balls. “You want to make sure you look, feel and do your best. At the same time, you want your clothes to feel comfortable and stylish. You should be able to wear the same outfit to the pub or to a fancy restaurant or Tinder date!”
Offering a more applied shopping experience, you can shop the site according to both occasion and ‘feel’. Want to be confident at an interview? Sophisticated at a work event or edgy at an important pitch? There’s a look for you. Stocking a number of cool Scandi fashion brands, the site’s collections exude that must-sought-after effortless style. Our top picks? We love the Karma top by Alterwaisaome, which offers minimalist chic for the summer. The Billie shirt from the same brand is also an excellent buy for borrowed-from-the-boys effortlessness.
If you need some styling inspo then check out the No Ordinary Suit blog, run Helena herself, which is dedicated to the tricky area of business fashion. From outfit mistakes to designers to watch – she has all your work questions and problems sorted.
Plus, £1 from each item sold on noordinarysuit.com goes to Womankind. The charity works tirelessly towards a better and fairer existence for women and girls all over the world. What better reason to shop?
