If you love to experiments on newer looks, your office wear should do much more than earning pleasant compliments and wows. It must reflect the “person you are”.
Here are some suggestions to spice up your work wardrobe a bit.
Trousers: Redefine Your Personality
Grab a pair of well-fitted, straight fit cotton or polyester pants or wide legged trousers to look stylish, cool and professional at workplace. This popular attire can get boring and monotonous if you adamantly stick with regular shades like blacks, beiges, navy blues and greys. Introduce some different colours into your wardrobe like blue, plum, purple, and maroon. However, perky pink and wild prints would be much riskier in the office setting. Team your trousers with tops in softer feminine colours like lilac, ice blue soft pink or ivory. During winter, add short jackets or blazers for comfort. However, wearing long trench coat will look simply ridiculous.Your office wear would remain incomplete without a nice pair of closed-toe heels, a smart leather belt and some sleek jewelries.
Skirts: Flaunt Some Style
Pencil skirts made of khaki material, cotton or linen are great option for daily office wear. You can also choose flared skirts. Ideally, high waist pencil skirts can make you look slimmer. Tuck in cotton, polyester or silk top/ shirt to accentuate the right curves. For a clean look, wear a cropped jacket that fits well and doesn’t give a bulge around the waist. Keep your skirt’s hemline slightly below the knee. For cooler weather, wear long skirts made of twill, cotton or wool fabrics for a refined professional look. A-line skirts are the best options to balance out larger body frames.
Go for well fitted or pleated shirts (along with trousers) that perfectly hug the curves. While opting for a suit, choose a shell top (formal version of a tank top) in neutral colours like white, black, or beige. Go for a shell top with a conservative neckline. You can also try out embellished neckline such as lace or embroidery. you can also select collared pinstriped or brightly coloured button-down shirts teamed with a formal suit. A silk scarf with string of pearls can easily feminize this serious, conservative look. A turtleneck top is another good option perfect for -air-conditioned office rooms and cold months. If you dislike long-sleeved versions, decide on sleeveless turtlenecks. A blouse can bring a fresh, feminine touch to a tailored jacket or blazer. Alternatively, you can take off your short coat while sitting or working.
