Who says what you wear to the office has to be bland, boring, and dull? We think workplace fashion is one of the most challenging yet fun concepts to master! As long as you know how to do it right, you can make your office attires fun and chic without compromising on that sophisticated professional look. Here are a few ways you can add life, color, and fashion to your office attires!
Stay Classy with Classic Office Fashion
If you want to look feminine but professional and powerful, it’s best to opt for the safest yet most stylish option: a pencil skirt and matching jacket two-piece suit is a must for the office. The look and style this outfit provides is sensational and will have your turning heads as you walk the floor! Pair it with some detailed tights and heels and you’ve got the perfect look. There are many fashionable suit style dresses on the market today and the women's suit has been refreshed with trendy patterns and different cuts so we can wear them with a bit of flair and style.
We have started to see small decorative additionals to office outfits for women. A little lace to add some vintage style. Bold buttons or stitching have been introduced to add some panache to the traditional clothing. and we have seen a lot more focus on tailored fittings or more feminine friendly designs.
Mix Bold Colors with Neutrals
Wearing extremely bold colours can be a little over the top for the workplace but that doesn’t mean you avoid them completely! If you choose a single bold coloured item and mix it with neutral colours, you can look colourful and professional all the same. For instance, try a hot pink knee length skirt with a black casual blazer and white silk blouse, or try opting for a bright coloured formal shirt with grey trousers and simple black heels. Vibrant colours can make you stand out for all the right reasons in the workplace. Try floral patterns of polka dot designs for some variety.
A Little Jewellery Goes a Long Way to Add Style
If you think jewellery isn’t for the workplace, think again. Jewellery is completely acceptable as long as you know how to pull it off. Wearing a single item of jewellery is ideal – maybe slip on a bracelet, wear a fancy watch, or wear a locket that matches your outfit. Earrings are great for the workplace and can give a little dazzle to your outfit. Also a well-decorated broach can look very appealing on a shirt or dress, but avoid placing them onto blazers or cardigans. The only jewellery you need to avoid is the kind that jingles, it can be distracting. Otherwise, our advice is to add a piece or two if you want to add a little style to your look.
Stay Polished, Stay Chic
One of the main rules for looking your best is to give careful consideration to the finished look. You want to give a vibe of effortlessness but actually look polished and tidy. This means manicured nails, tamed hair, neutral or light shades of makeup, polished shoes, ironed clothes, and run-free leggings – as long as you’re properly polished, you can make any outfit look amazing!
If you know how to do it right, office fashion can truly be a fun challenge and also help you give off a great, properly prepared kind of look at your workplace! Also, remember to maintain subtlety and balance and you’re good to go.
