Fashion inspiration can come from anywhere these days: street style, runways, and now, travel trends. Enter “bleisure,” the term that traditionally described a business trip with a few days of leisure tacked on, and now refers to the egregiously broad “business casual.” At the intersection of work, lounge, and street style, bleisure is clothing that is office-appropriate, practical, and has just a little hint of edge. Take a silk jumpsuit, throw on a pair of block-heeled sandals, and prepare for 9-5 comfort and class.

As more people continue hybrid work modes and return to the office, the need for bleisure is apparent. There are a multitude of ways to craft the perfectly laid-back look. Kat Gosik, who has styled the likes of Christine Quinn and Mia Khalifa, throws a bleisure look together with a business-meeting Staud set, Bottega Veneta sunglasses, and Nike Chunky Dunks sneakers. It’s “the perfect amount of effortless and ‘I care’ mixture,” she tells BAZAAR.com. Another approach to bleisure is to think about it as “the art of layering,” says Madewell’s senior vice president of design, Joyce Lee. She starts with “a comfortable foundation that allows layering and accessories to be incorporated, such as a soft pant like leggings. [L]ayer a crisp shirt or relaxed blazer on top, add some simple gold jewelry, [and] you’re ready to go.”

Whatever your office set-up—remote, hybrid, or in-person—leaning into bleisure ensures you’ll work in comfort and style. Below, shop the 14 items that will bring your bleisure outfit to life, from an office-appropriate Ksubi polo dress to Sandro’s leather loafers for a mix of work and play.
