In 2021, in the professional world, the codes have evolved. It is possible to adopt a formal dress code without looking too stiff.

True workwear, the navy sweater will become your ally to wear to the office. Discover now how to accessorize it to wear it everyday.

A formal and colorful look

If your company's dress code allows it, you can inject a dose of color into your office attire. Pair the yellow navy sweater with a pair of straight 7/8 grey checkered pants. Depending on your preference, you can wear matte black pumps or more comfortable patent ballerina heels.

A classic formal look

For the less daring, a more conventional outfit is possible. Beyond being warm and durable, the basic and form-fitting nature of our knitwear makes it elegant, simple and easy to wear.

For this look, we suggest you use our ecru navy sweater. Wear it with a gray flannel pantsuit. Choose loose fitting pants and slightly roll up the sleeves of the jacket to reveal the bottom sleeves of the sweater. Our navy sweaters are a bit long and tight, so you can tuck the sweater into the pants and emphasize the waistline and the play of proportions (baggy pants/tight sweater) with a wide brown leather belt.

A decidedly feminine formal look

As opposed to the boring skirt suit, you can decide to be resolutely feminine in a skirt to go to work. The pencil skirt is your ideal ally. Choose our authentic navy blue navy sweater, tuck it into a pencil skirt of the same color. You can play on the materials to bring depth to the look, by choosing a leather skirt for example. Highlight your waist with a colorful belt and put on your best pair of pumps. If a jacket is in order, a nude or taupe blazer will do the trick. You should be a sensation!


For weddings, you can wear whatever you want as long as you are beautiful and elegant! Thus, the navy sweater invites itself in your wedding outfits. You just need the right pieces and a few accessories to make it precious and thus integrate it into a refined look.
