How the right sweatshirt can help you pull off the workwear look

The workwear look is always cool, but really comes into itself from autumn through spring. It delivers no-nonsense functionality but with a silhouette that shows you’re not compromising style – those muted tones ensure you fit in through the working day, night out or weekend chill. It’s not a complicated look, based around a simple sweatshirt and functional pants and footwear. You might not know when you’ve got it right or, more importantly, when something wouldn’t quite fulfil the brief. Workwear street style is about as Dickies as Dickies gets, so here are some pointers to staying clocked in.

Reflective Collection: how to stand out from the crowd

Are you bored with beige? Uninspired by neutral tones? Sick of not standing out? Welcome to the club, so are we and we’ve got the antidote with our Reflective Collection. Streetwear designers have historically looked towards the style and functional nature of workwear for inspiration. In the early days of streetwear, we saw pioneers mixing their favourite brands of the time like XLARGE, Fuct and Stussy with our workwear apparel. Both these factors cemented us in the streetwear world. Our streetwear credentials, combined with our near century-long history in workwear, makes us pretty well qualified to release a reflective streetwear collection. The reflective trend has boldly become entrenched into both streetwear and fashion. Read on to find out how this seemingly utilitarian and unfashionable style has become an icon for streetwear heads and fashion houses alike. Concerned about pulling off such an outlandish style choice? Fear not we’ll walk you through that too!

How workwear coats became fashionable

It’s surprising how many fashion items, especially jackets, started out as workwear. They’ve been picked up by youth cultures and made their own, perhaps with their original functions in mind, but mainly because they just look great. Given enough time, those same items can go mainstream, and sometimes even become quite formal.

How to soften, stretch and break in a pair of Dickies work pants

Dickies pants are made to last. That means tough, durable fabrics and blends that will outlast pretty much everything else in your wardrobe. A side effect of this toughness is that they can sometimes be a little stiff straight from the store. While that’s fine for some, others like to soften, stretch and break them in before hitting the streets. Here’s how you can dial down the stiffness and give your new Dickies more of a worn feel.
