A lot of women tend to pick up boring choices for work wear. While it is undeniably true that work wardrobe should be subtle and conservative, there is a very fine line between boring and subtle. With a little creativity, you can make your work wardrobe interesting while also keeping it simple — there are so many ways in which you can include the latest fashion trends in your wardrobe. Here are a few suggestions that you can follow to make your work wear riveting and classy.
1. Invest in a pair of wide-leg culottes.
The culottes are making it big this season. Not only are these utterly comfortable, they are also chic and stylish. Pair your culottes with a plain top and high heels and you will look effortlessly stylish without being over the top. The good part about culottes is that you can double them as both office as well as casual wear — all you need to do is alter the styling a bit.
2. If you don’t believe in conservative choices and want to make your work wear slightly edgier, you can do so by buying yourself a pair of knee high boots.
Knee high boots have been a rage for a while now. Wear them with a short or long skirt and can add blazer to tone down the sexiness that these boots will bring to your attire. You can also wear these with skinny trousers.
3. We are betting on stripes this season.
There is something about stripes that says you mean business. For a simple white and black look, pair a white and black striped shirt with black trousers. However, if you are looking to add some fun to your work wardrobe, you could look for coloured stripes. Coloured striped dresses make the perfect spring work outfit. These look specially good when paired with either tan or nude accessories.
4. For women who feel confident in their skin, a slip dress is a must have.
Lingerie-inspired clothing has been this season’s biggest fashion trend. From red carpets to airports and date nights, these dresses have made a mark everywhere. If you wish to feel sensual while at work, buy yourself a slip dress and pair it with either a trench coat or a scarf to tone down the sexiness a bit.
5. You absolutely must have a matching business suit in your work wardrobe.
The suit is for women who want to exhibit both power and control. Matching suits will not only make your fashionable smart, they will also bring you those powerful vibes that every work women must possess. However, if you do not want your look to be entirely corporate, we recommend wearing your matching suit with a casual footwear like the sneakers.
6. Last, you must add an off-shoulder dress to your work wardrobe.
These 40s and 50s inspired bardot blouses look especially cute with flared skirts or wide-legged trousers. You can add even more style to your work look by carrying along a bucket bag. The bucket bag has been a favorite of many powerful women ever since it made an appearance on the runway last year.
Simple or conservative doesn’t always have to be boring. As a professional woman, you must use your creativity to put your best foot forward. You must learn to impress people with your first look.
