To revamp your wardrobe, think outside of the box. Place your attention on things that you probably wouldn’t have normally worn. You should also focus on the appropriate patterns, shades, quality and trends. Do you know that you can wear four outfits in four different ways? During the winter months, you can even add a pair of colored tights under a skirt to change the entire look of the outfit. You can add boots to some long skirts to get a more sophisticated appearance.
One of the trendiest piece for the fashion conscious employee is color blocking. It adds professionalism, chicness and style to your look while still being playful. To exemplify this, you could combine a color block pink skirt with a white blouse and black blazer will make you look feminine, confident, powerful and polished. Finish off your outfit with some matching shoes.
Of course, you will have to dress according to your chosen career. So if you work in the classroom, you may be able to get away with different shades and material, but if you are a sales associate, you may have to tone it down a little, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot wear a sleeveless white/black color block dress with a black jacket. Choose colors that are suitable and friendly such as blue, white, black, grey, yellow and even pink.
Most bright hues tend to be fashion forward and acceptable.
If you are going for a conservative look, you can ‘push the envelope,’ a bit and challenge the traditional approach from dull to stylish without hurting anyone’s feelings. You can keep it business like and yet girly with a pair of black pants and a ruffled top to add flair and a soft touch. Accessorize with a decorated necklace piece and wear shoes that show off your fun personality and sense of style.
Peplum is a popular fashion statement that most women have gravitated towards. It hides the midsection and makes you look very graceful and cultured for the office. You can opt for flower-patterned dress with a basic color jacket, which is also very fashionable and contemporary.
For casual days at work, wear straight legged pants with a neutrally shaded top. Pair everything with medium pumps for a fun and welcoming appearance. I would even propose a heavy necklace to go with these and a mixture of bracelets.
Don’t be afraid to wear bright hues to work. You can jazz up your outfit and yet remain professional. How do you dress for work? Do you play with various colors or just stick to those bland hues?
