We caught you nodding in agreement with all three statements. And, we bet you’re going to love what is coming up too.
The recurring and inoculant question about ‘What to wear to work?’ has bothered generations after generations and in spite of the gazillion brands and outfit options, we still find ourselves walking into the office looking like our colleagues. Black pants, black blazers, black shoes. Well, worry no more, we have fifty shades of work here to revamp that work wardrobe of yours and help you invest in statement making pieces that can last a long while.
Smarty pants – put that money into buying bold pants. Black, blue and beige can wait, instead, pick one of these. Prints are always in and you can always pair them with a plain tank or tee and vola! Also, subtle and delicate colors ooze the vibe of sophistication and can absolutely work for a day to night look too!
Prepare to be bejeweled – ruffled neckpieces are cool but what we are eyeing this season is this trend of chunky yet minimalist. Sweaters and top with a little jewel or beading can work wonders with fitted trousers. Pair them with a pencil skirt and you can give Donna a run for her money!
Pattern punch – we know this can be slightly tricky but if you can nail this, there is nothing stopping you from taking over the world. Mix and match patterns and prints to make a bold impression. We love how denim works with everything and goes for the casual yet formal look. And polka is always fun, YES?
Boyfriend to the rescue- Surprised? Yeah we were too, until we found the magic in their blazers. Oversizing is the key to this off-the-cuff smart look and it is completely sweeping us off our feet. For those a little outside the corporate dressing circle, this look with the shorts is an absolute win-win!
And finally because sexy never goes out of style – we love how a high neck fitted dress can work wonders for any body type. Flaunt those curves and rock those booties, j’adore the Mad Men outfit like nobody!
