We all love to look the best, wear trending fashion and bring style to work in our office attire. We all buy a lot of clothes that are in vogue but end up thinking “I have nothing to wear” looking at the pile full of clothes. Most of us have this recurring question of “what to wear at work” is pertinent for all the days in a week, why not put on our creative fashion hats and figure out how to dress, simple and classy.
Classic Look: Most common way to dress for the office and this look is perfect for all jobs. But this look can also get boring, unless you always wear a statement piece, or add an eye-catching accessory to your looks like a piece of jewellery, watch, lips, nails, shoes or a bag to add fun to this look.
Chic Look: It needs a little effort and can be achieved by pairing different elements together like textures, pattern, silhouettes and fit. Contrast is key for this look. It is for those who aim slightly high on the fashion game. Helps uplifts your carefree personality and is high street-style-worthy. High heels look best with this style, but brogues or oxfords do the trick as well.
Sophisticated Look: is one of the easy looks to obtain but requires practice. Experiment and have fun with clothes. You can accomplish this look by contrasting elements combined with a classy style that suits your personality and job. Androgynous clothing with high heels and little bling, athleisure with classy pencil skirts, hats, prints, sheer, denim – all that the non-connoisseurs label as work inappropriate is quite the opposite because it’s about styling them and making them work.
Simple and Feminine: This look is really easy and simple to accomplish, flirty-flowy dresses, itsy bitsy jewellery, it is more of a cute girl next door look. The hem of the dress is key, knee-length or over the knee skirts or dresses, usually cinched at the waist and paired with smart blazers or cardigans. Ballet shoes, platform heels or wedges nail the wear to work situation.
Casual Business: It is most comfortable and easiest look to carry out. Always pair casual work outfits with heels, a very smart/feminine top or a thin silky blouse, men-shirts and structured tops. Sliding into a blazer and a professional bag will ace your look. Add fun factor with accessories and even shoes and bags depending on your job.
Glam Look: Is for all those women who run the world and rock their office attire look: bright lips, sky-high heels and office wear that transcends to late dinner cocktails and parties because it’s Friday night. Rich fabrics, pencil skirts, silky blouses, fitted trousers, statement necklaces and jewellery, perfume, sexy heels, watches and a tote or clutch is everything that screams attention.
Edgy Look: It is applicable to those in offices with no dress code. You can add a bit of your own thing. Boots, T-shirts, dark or bolder lips, nail-art, sneakers. It a statement with mix and match and simple pieces that translate into great work outfit ideas.
