Do you ever stand in front of your closet pushing the outfits from one corner to the other and back in the name of getting the perfect combo for the following day at work? It is such a boring and taxing routine. Why can’t work outfits be as interesting and fun to pick like dinner dresses? Just wondering.
I think it is just how we perceive things, occasions are occasional so I understand the excitement to pick an outfit, but isn’t it unfair that our every day affair is a boring one? The better part of the year is spent working so why make it boring? I have come up with a few tips to help revamp my work wardrobe and have fun everyday, after all the work wardrobe has slowly transitioned to include softer colours and styles.
1. Pencil Skirt and Pants
No matter your shape or size, a pencil skirt is a great weapon in any woman’s wardrobe. It wows everywhere; in the board room or the bar after work. Black is the best colour for starts as it is versatile, you can wear it with anything! A pencil skirt is must have classic piece that gives you the perfect professional look. You can never go wrong with these two items.
2. Classic Handbag
A classy look needs a classy handbag to complete the statement. We cannot all afford an expensive designer bag to start with but that is no excuse for not looking great. There are several other elegant handbags available at an affordable price. Your hand bag should be large enough to accommodate the office documents but not too large to look like you are going camping every other morning.
3. Crisp White Blouse (and several others blouses).
For that tailored look a spotless neatly pressed blouse always works. A white blouse, just like the black pants and skirt can be worn with anything; inside a suit or a standalone pairing.
4. Signature Piece
This is that one piece that makes you feel powerful and confident. It may be that suit, that shirt or pair of shoes or a piece of jewelry that you reach out for whenever you need a boost. This piece in your wardrobe never goes wrong anytime; it’s a master piece that you cling into when everyone else (your wardrobe) doesn’t seem to get it right!
5. A Blazer
A well fitting blazer transforms an outfit from casual to professional instantly: Whether it is a pair of pants, jeans or a dress. For that touch of professionalism, a blazer is the way to go.
6. A Pair of Heels
Epitome of sexiness! Start with a black pair, good quality. I have to admit that a pair of comfortable heels makes me feel confident all day. Invest in closed ones or peep toes and wedges but make sure they are the right height; a wobbling figure in the office (and everywhere) is an unpleasant sight.
7. A Pair of Great Flats
There is nothing that gives me restful joy than to kick the heels off my feet in the evening. Mann, can they be exhausting at times! If you share the sentiments, a pair of great flats will come in handy for those days when you have to run from one meeting to the next. Everybody expects you to look polished, so what a better way to deliver a polished presentation all from the comfort of your feet.
