Filipino Workwear Brands for Your Return-to-Office OOTDs

Filipino Workwear Brands for Your Return to Office OOT Ds

Is your company requiring its employees to return to office? If you enjoyed life without traffic and moved back to the province amidst the pandemic, then bidding goodbye to the work-from-home set-up must be hard. Although there are disadvantages (read: no free aircon especially in the summer), one cannot deny the fact that remote work offers a lot of benefits such as saving your time from traffic and attending virtual meetings while sporting your favorite PJs.

If you need some encouragement to comply with your company’s return-to-office (RTO) policy, we have one for you: resurrecting your pretty office attire in your closet. While nothing is more comfortable than lounging in your comfy pambahay, we must admit that we all missed power-dressing and slaying the invisible runway in the central business district while donning our corporate attire.

To refresh your closet before you return to your office, here are local labels worth checking out!



Pink Manila

If you like plain blouses and dresses, Pink Manila’s got your back. Their fashion pieces are versatile, fitting both an office set-up and an after-work hangout with your co-employees. They use fabrics that are made of cotton, nylon, and spandex for comfort. We recommend buying from their website as they offer free shipping on orders worth P2,900 and up.

Everyday Casuals

Although they brand their designs as casual (just look at their name), many of their pieces make for nice office outfits such as this pink blouse with puffed sleeves and this black off-shoulder top that can go with jeans or slacks. Mom-of-three Sheila Villanueva founded Everyday Casuals after spending 19 years in the corporate world. Aside from their youthful designs, another reason to support this local brand is their advocacy. Each month, they donate to Save the Children, a nonprofit group that aims to “ensure that no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday.”

Everyday Casuals ships orders within three to five days after payment confirmation. Go to their website to browse through their collections.

SAP Clothing

This local brand offers feminine designs at a wallet-friendly price. You can score monochromatic dresses and blazers for less than P800, a huge deal if you want to look fab without breaking the bank. SAP Clothing ships to Metro Manila (P90 to P390), the rest of Luzon (P100 to P455), Visayas (P105 to P485), and Mindanao (P110 to P525). International shipping is also supported. We recommend creating an account via their website to track your order.

Kamiseta

A household name in local fashion, Kamiseta brings a gorgeous collection of corporate outfits that will make you excited to reunite with your cubicle. Browse through their Classic Workwear collection to score versatile pieces like these that go well with a pair of stilettos or rubber shoes! Kamiseta is also best known for collaborating with local celebrities like Heart Evangelista, the brand’s former creative director.

Araw The Line

If your RTO peg is the crossover of chic, modern, and comfy, then you would probably go crazy over Araw The Line’s collections. While the brand is not predominantly about corporate attires, their linen dresses are nice gems that you can find in their catalogue. They also have polo shirts, trousers, and shirts for men. According to their website, Araw The Line, “favors a minimal aesthetic paired with light premium fabrics for garments that are summery, sophisticated and highlight every day Filipino's natural beauty.”
