Performance professional clothes are clothes that look good in the office or at work but are comfortable and more relaxed than traditional office attire. Over the last several years there have been improvements in fabrics, some having elastic / stretch which give them more flexibility and there have been improvements in textile manufacturing. Now designers can design clothes that are professional looking, stylish and comfortable to wear to work. In some offices there are no dress codes anymore as long as you look good you are OK. Professional and private lives are blending together. Most women want comfort and designers are answering their call with athletically inspired performance professional styles and fabrics for the office, evening wear and sportswear. The Nau dress pictured is made from a soft hand and easy to drape fabric of organic cotton, TENCEL® and a small amount of spandex creating a breathable, washable fabric that’s ideal for cooler temps and easy travel. The pants below are from Aella, crafted with fabrics that have the comfort of Yoga wear and the sophistication of tailored suiting.
