WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK
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.).
SIMPLE & FEMININE is an easy ook 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 colour or print, cinched at the waist, paired with smart blazers. Shoes wise, heels look better but you can also don ballet flats.
The 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.
GLAMOROUS at the office is a look 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 am to late dinner cocktails.
The TIP is always in the posh fabulous heels. Expensive perfumes, rich fabrics, pencil skirts and silky blouses, long trousers, statement golden necklaces, brand watches and massive bags or clutches. These ladies are not afraid to flaunt it all.
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 one statement piece, clash styles, use a classy look for a start base and then add items 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 and making them work. Told you… it’s about having fun!
The EDGY looks are not for the faint hearted ones, nor for all work domains, although 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.
