We all feel the urge to start fresh in a new week, whether by vowing to be more productive, eat healthier, or stress less and while you are on your new week self-improvement kick, don’t forget about your wardrobe.
Every industry has its dress code, clothes and accessories that subtly signify you are part of the club. Whether that’s an architect’s beautifully tailored jacket or a tech nerd’s plastic-frame glasses, every professional wardrobe can be broken down into a kind of visual shorthand.
If you belong to the women who are working in an office from 8 to 6, you must have the feeling that you are tired of wearing the dull black, white and grey outfits day after day. Can an office worker be fashionably dressed? The answer is definitely, Yes but most women can’t make a good balance between a fashionable look and an office look. Are you one of those women who can’t strike a balance between a fashionable look and office look? Then this article is for you.
Here are five easy upgrade looks this week, these tips will not only keep you chic, but also empower you, from your desks to the boardroom.
The CASUAL Business look: The TIP is to always wear heels, a very smart/feminine top like a silky blouse or structured tops, a blazer and a professional bag. Have fun with accessories and even shoes and bags depending on your job.
GLAMOROUS at the office: This look is for all those sexy women who rule the world, and would rather do it in bright lips, sky high heels and outfits that can go from 9 am to late dinner cocktails. The TIP is always in the posh fabulous heels. Expensive perfumes, rich fabrics, pencil skirts and silky blouses, long trousers, statement golden necklaces, brand watches and massive bags or clutches. These ladies are not afraid to flaunt it all.
SOPHISTICATED office wear: It’s easy to do but it needs training, so experiment away and have fun with clothes. The TIP for this look is: enjoy fashion and always wear at least 1 statement piece, clash styles, use a classy look for a start base and then add items according to your personality and job.
SIMPLE & FEMININE: This is an easy look if you are the kind of girl who loves flowy flirty dresses, tiny jewelry and looking casual smart all the time. If you think chiffon and flirty is not for office think again. The TIP: it’s all about the hem. Wear knee-length or over-the-knee dresses or skirts in any color or print, cringed at the waist, paired with smart blazers. Shoes wise, heels look better but you can also them ballet flats.
The EDGY look: This look is not for the faint hearted ones, nor for all work domains, although if you may say so, one can add a slight edge to any look and get away with it. This style is more appropriate for those who work creative jobs and have less of a strict office attire, so they can add a bit of their own thing into it. The TIP is to remember you are still going to work, so mix and match statement and simple.
