04 July 2017
Modays. They’re the best of times, they’re the worst of times. Or maybe just the latter if you’re to pay any attention to all the facebook & instagram pages, Monday hatred memes going around. Still, not all is lost on Mondays, cause alongside the blues and the weekend hangovers, we get to play with fashion and take style to work.
A new week is a new opportunity to take style with you wherever you go. Regardless of your 9-5 job and how your co-workers dress everyday, take a deep breath and note that you don’t have to dress boring to work anymore!
Sounds bit confusing as in” where & how to start” questions starts striking your head. Don’t panics just read it on.
The best part is? I’ve done the research for you! Below are my top 10 tips for taking style with you into the office and look glamorous. You’ll notice that most of these tips you can start incorporating now – and for all ages!
Are you ready to be the best dressed in the office? Go through for our transformative tips!
Tip 1: Inject color into your look by matching your pout to your pumps.
Whether it’s a subtle hint of lilac or a hot pink pump – adding a pop of color into your business look is a great way to spice up the everyday office-wear. And if you’re a daring diva – try matching your shoe with a bold lip color.
Tip 2: Challenge yourself to not wear any black. Your outfit will look instantly ready for spring.
Ban black for a day, and instead introduce an airy floral to your outfit. However, it’s almost spring! Try mixing in some neutrals like cream or camel. You can’t go wrong with these soft hues. It’s a great way to brighten up the office this spring.
Tip 3: Strict Dress Code? Don’t panic.
Accessories are your best friend. An impressive statement piece, hand bag, and even hairstyle can transform your entire look. You’ll suddenly feel confident and not so conformed in the office.
Tip 4: Own at least one good suit (that fits!)
Ladies – A tailored suit that fits and flatters your body type can make all the difference. Research the best fits/style for your body type. For example, I am slender/petite so I knew a cropped pant suit would be a great fit (literally) to give the illusion that I’m taller. Also note – plaid and pinstripes are AWESOME not LAME. The benefit of spending money and time tailoring a suit (if you need to) knows that you’ll have it forever. You can re-wear the blazer styled with a dress and the pants, too. Just pair it with a cute blouse over and over again.
Tip 5 : Wear a Dress, at least once a week.
You don’t have to be a girly-girl to appreciate a good dress. Dresses are probably the easiest way to look classy and ready for a meeting at the same time. Stay away from fitted dresses (this ain’t the club!) and look for asymmetrical styles like a wrap dress that looks flattering on every body-type!
Tip 6: Sleek Hair or Messy Hair, Don’t Care.
There’s something so chic about a sleek hairdo in the office. There’s also something so chic about a messy soft top knot. If done correctly, you might be mistaken for a runway model behind that cubicle. Whether it’s a sleek top-knot, your hair parted more on one side, or a soft messy low-bun – a little goes a long way.
Tip 7: A Jumpsuit and Blazer.
If you’ve been dying to wear that comfy new jumpsuit you bought to work but might be afraid your boss will call you into the office, try pairing it with a blazer. Instantly the jumpsuit will look sophisticated and business-chic. If you’re not a blazer fan, look for loose-fitted jumpsuits with appropriate sleeves.
Tip 8: Sneak in strappy heels.
What the HR department doesn’t know won’t kill them right? Get away with open-toed heels by pairing them with conservative pieces like a pencil skirt and long-sleeve blouse or a chic all black pant-suit.
Tip 9: Sporty can be office chic, too.
If you’re going to wear pants everyday, switch it up every now and then with a side-stripe pant or printed bottom. If your workplace isn’t super strict, mix and match a sporty sweater with a loose button-up underneath, statement necklace and sleek skinnies.
Tip 10: Invite Unique prints/patterns/textures.
Sometimes all your office attire needs is a little pattern. Buy a few patterned blouses or button-up tops to mix into your daily routine. I totally recommend visiting your local consignment store to find unique prints for super cheap!
The next time you stand in front of your closet and think, “What in the world should I wear today?”, I hope these friendly-tips will help you out.
