The SN Routine Refresh Guide: Shop Our Back to the Office Essentials

Thank you to our friends at Klarna for partnering with us on this article.

After months of working from home, the time has finally come: Team SN is returning to the office.

This routine change feels *huge* after so many months of Zoom calls and virtual happy hours–and this major moment calls for refreshed essentials. We teamed up with Klarna to curate our back to the office shopping guide, with all the fashion finds, accessories, and beauty picks you need.

Klarna is Team SN’s shopping secret weapon–it's our favorite way to make serious hauls like this one budget-friendly. Klarna is an all-in-one shopping app that makes it easy to shop our go-to retailers all in one place. When you check out with Klarna, you can split your purchase into 4 interest-free payments.

From work-appropriate clothing to beauty must-haves, discover the routine refresh essentials Team SN is shopping with Klarna here.

Stock Up on Office-Appropriate Outfits

The days of Zooming in pajamas are over–get ready to slip back into workwear. To make this return to regular styling feel seamless, pick up a few hero pieces from two of our favorite Klarna retailers, ASOS and & Other Stories.

Start by shopping for a classic skirt you can style with multiple tops, like the Koco & K Satin Pleated Midi Skirt from ASOS. This elegant skirt pairs beautifully with a crisp button-down or a blouse for a sophisticated work-appropriate look. Round out your ASOS haul by shopping the Monki Pearl Crochet Cardigan and Pull&Bear Split Hem Jeans.

Continue shopping at & Other Stories, where we're loving this classic Breton Stripe Top, a Parisian-inspired pick that will shine in your next meeting. For an easy work-to-weekend piece, shop the Treasure Cut Jeans, which have an ultra-flattering high waist and a timeless silhouette.

Refresh Your Shoes and Accessories

In a work-from-home setting, shoes and accessories are entirely optional. But these essentials are more important than ever as we return to our in-person routine, so it’s time to find new pieces.

First, you'll need a foolproof work sneaker. If your office has a more relaxed dress code, pick up Team SN's favorite pairs: the VEJA Women's 3 Lock Low Top Sneakers, which you can shop on Bloomingdale’s, and the NMD_R1 Primeblue Shoes from Adidas. These classic white shoes are easy to coordinate with any look.

If your office setting is more formal, consider commuting in a pair of comfortable sneakers before changing into dressier shoes at your desk. Our go-to sophisticated footwear style is the Jimmy Choo Women's Watson Ballerina Flats from Bloomingdale's. These luxurious shoes are a pricey pick, but if you pay with Klarna, you can divide the purchase into 4 interest-free payments of $118.75.

New Essentials to Elevate Your Beauty Routine

Returning to our regular routine means taking your daily beauty regimen to the next level. Shop new necessities from Klarna retailers like Sephora and Bloomingdale's to elevate your existing routine.

Start your refresh with Sephora's hair, skincare, and makeup selection. If you’re getting back to styling your hair with a curler or blow dryer, pick up the Honey Infused Hair Oil from Gisou, which will hydrate, protect, and nourish your hair.

You'll need a trusty foundation in your routine, one that includes SPF and ingredients that nurture your skin. Arielle and Team SN all swear by ILIA’s Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation. Complete your Sephora haul with a hydrating lip product, like Dior’s Dior Addict Lip Glow.

Perfume is making a major comeback as we return to the office. We recommend choosing a fresh, floral scent like Jo Malone London’s English Pear & Freesia Cologne. Pro tip: purchase this splurge-worthy fragrance using Klarna at Bloomingdale’s so you can pay in 4 interest-free payments of $36.
