Workwear that works.
Whether working from an office or remotely from the comfort of your favorite coffeehouse, your business life can take a toll on you mentally and physically. Esteemed ergonomics expert and Cornell University professor Alan Hedge showed us how to sidestep some occupational concerns.


WATER COOLER TALK
TIP: SOCIALIZE AND BE CREATIVE


“We call them movement motivators. People get up and get their drink and get exercise. It also increases the chance that you’ll meet other people. That increases the social cohesiveness of a work group and the level of creativity, and the chance that great ideas are going to emerge from that.”

Be comfy having productive conversation with your office compatriots in soft and supple Women’s Extra Fine Cotton Shirt and Men’s Extra Fine Merino Turtleneck Sweater. Transition smoothly to an after-work drink in the versatile Men’s Relaxed Ankle Pants and Women’s High Waist Dry Stretch Skirt.

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES
TIP: MOVE AND TAKE A MICRO BREAK!

“Improve your performance and take frequent short breaks. After 20 minutes, you start to lose focus and concentration. The optimal work pattern is 20 minutes sitting, 8 minutes standing, and 2 minutes moving. Repeat that throughout the day. Research shows that dramatically reduces levels of fatigue.”

The stretch in Men’s KANDO Pants and Comfort Jacket allow you to perform any callisthenic with maximum movement. Perform any yoga pose thanks to the elasticity in Women’s High Waist Gathered Wide Leg Pants.

TIP: HOLD YOUR PHONE AT A PROPER HEIGHT


“People are adjusting their bodies to technology — not the other way around. Holding your smartphone or tablet down around waist level puts a huge strain on the neck and restricts breathing. Bring your arms up so you don’t have to tilt your head as much. There’s a medical problem known as texter’s neck you don’t want.”

If you have to sit all day, opt for the Smart Style Ankle Length Pants for the utmost comfort. Adjust your arms to any height in the Rayon Blouse. Don’t worry if you spill your latte (unless it’s on your computer)—they’re all machine washable.
