A lady can achieve the ideal office look

A lady can achieve the ideal office look

Getting a nice office look doesn’t mean plain coloured suits alone. Yes, they are ok but Navy and black aren’t the only colors that mean business. Here is how to get a nice new yet creative office look.

Ditch the Suit

Perfectly matched jackets and pants feel outdated. Switch to separates in harmonious colors yet contrasting textures for a modern approach. A crisp white shirt unifies the outfit.

Get more from your dress

A buttoned-up peplum blouse cleverly transforms a sheath into a skirt. Layering a playful necklace under the collar completes the look.

Show your feminine side

Sticking to conservative silhouettes like a silk blouse, a pencil skirt, a leather satchel/bag, and classic pumps gives you the leverage to sport florals, pastels, and lace. Throw on the cardigan to face active days or strict dress codes.

Circle back to the sheath

This tailored cut is the epitome of business class. And no one will recognize it as the “skirt” you wore a few days ago. Add a lightweight cardigan for a more relaxed vibe or the jacket to sharpen it up.

Go for synergy

Work with a team of like colors (in this case, a pale palette of nude, pink, and yellow) to create a pulled-together look that does the job.

Build on a strong foundation

Take the blouse-over-dress trick a step further by adding another layer. The cropped cut of the jacket nicely plays up the flirty hem of the shirt.

Upgrade casual Friday

Master the balance of informal and polished in an easy cardigan, trim pants, and a comfortable pair of flats.
