Here are 7 looks & outfit ideas that you should to try if the recurring question of “what to wear to work?” is pertinent from Monday to Friday.
The classic look is probably the most common and easiest way to dress for office, regardless of your job.
But it is 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, jewelry, watch, lips, nails. It’s all in the details.)
The casual business look, or the-can-I-wear-jeans-to-wo
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.
The carefree chic look is for those who’ve got slightly more penchant for street style.
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.
The glamorous-at-the-office 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 a.m. to late dinner cocktails.
The TIP is always in the posh fabulous heels, pencil skirts, silky blouses, long trousers, statement golden necklaces, and massive bags or clutches. These ladies are not afraid to flaunt it all.
Sophisticated office wear is easy to pull off, but it needs training. Experiment away and have fun with clothes.
The TIP for this look is: enjoy fashion and always wear at least 1 statement piece and clash styles. Use a classy look for a start base, and then add items according to your personality and job. It’s about having fun.
Looking simple and feminine is easy peasy if you’re the kind of 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. For shoes, heels look better but you can also don ballet flats.
The edgy look is not for the faint-hearted, nor for all work domains. This style is more appropriate for those who work creative jobs and have less strict office attire, so they can add a bit of their own thing into it: boots, leather, T-shirts, darker lips, nail-art, or tennis shoes.
The TIP is to remember you’re still going to work, so mix and match statement and simple.
