Balenciaga has moved on from ruling the streets to earning style cred in the office. The brand, headed by Demna Gvasalia, recently teamed up with luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter to release a capsule collection. The exclusive line features Balenciaga's most iconic pieces including knife sock boots, logofied tees, the Pantashoe and plaid suits and trousers.
Featuring a lookbook styled by the Balenciaga team and modeled by Net-a-Porter employees, this collaboration gets a stamp of approval in the workwear department. That said, here are five trendy pieces you can easily incorporate in your next office OOTD:
You can never have too many button-downs. When shopping for new ones, make sure to invest in pieces that have unique features, like this oversized shirt that you can wear as a dress or over pants! (It's also a cute way to ride the striped print trend while you're at it!)

The check print is making a huge comeback this season. To change things up, forget about pairing the print with formal pieces like dress shirts and brogues. Instead, opt for slogan tees and chunky shoes to complete your polished athleisure look.

Pink won't be going out of style anytime soon, and it makes a great accent for your go-to looks. For a cool touch, pair pink socks with your knife-pointed mules and pleated skirt equation!

Same goes for slogan tees! Wear yours on a casual Friday and layer it over a button-down to up the ante. This should give your office staples a more relaxed look.
