Professional Dressing for the office
So its important to dress appropriately for work, perhaps the short skirt look is a bit too obvious!? Why not try a few new looks
- The CLASSIC look is probably the most common and easiest way to dress for office, regardless of your job, but also the most likely to get you looking boring, unless you remember this ONE TIP: always wear a statement piece, or just a more fun item to your look (shoes, bag, jewellery, watch, lips, nails. It’s all in the details.).
- he CASUAL business look, or the-can-I-wear-jeans-to-work is actually pretty easy to do and quite versatile. The TIP is to always wear heels, a very smart/feminine top (think silky blouse, men-shirts, structured tops), a blazer and a professional bag. Have fun with accessories and even shoes and bags depending on your job.
- CARELESS CHIC is a look for those who’ve got slightly more penchant for fashion but look like they don’t give a crap, yet, to the trained eye they’re street-style-worthy. The TIP is to: clash different style items, play with shapes (slouchy versus fitted), with looks (feminine and masculine). Heels look best with this style, yet brogues or oxfords do the trick as well.
- SOPHISTICATED office wear is 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 itemes according to your personality and job: men inspired looks with super sexy heels, massive bling, sporty luxe sweatshirts with classy pencil skirts, hats, prints, leather, sheer, denim – all that the non-connoisseurs label as work inappropriate is quite the opposite, because it’s about styling them & making them work. Told you… it’s about having fun.
- SIMPLE & FEMININE is an easy peasy look if you’re the kinda gal 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, cinged at the waist, paired with smart blazers. Shoes wise, heels look better but you can also don ballet flats.
- The EDGY looks are not for the faint hearted ones, nor for all work domains, although if I 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: boots, leather, T-shirts, darker lips, nail-art, tennis shoes. The TIP is to remember you’re still going to work, so mix and match statement and simple.
