We spend more time at work than we do anywhere else so it is important to look the part. Whether you work in a relaxed atmosphere as many in the creative industries do, or you are expected to dress in business attire, it can be difficult to keep your wardrobe fresh.
Here are five ways, for both business and casual office attire, to help you style your work week.
Business: Typically a more formal day in the office, Monday’s call for an outfit that really works. Choose a tailored dress, smart blazer and some killer heels. Pair it with minimal jewellery and a large slouch purse.
Casual: Casual does not have to mean scruffy. There are so many ways you can dress down for your office environment but still look the part. A pair of indigo wash skinny jeans immediately bring a more put together feel to a casual look. Add a patterned top and a casual blazer. On your feet a pair of ballet flats will show you mean business.
Business: Midi dresses are not just for outside of work and you can definitely wear one with style in the office. A simple, either block color or a light pattern will look business like paired a good pair of heels.
Casual: Dresses are not just for going out, and a great day dress can look great in a relaxed office environment. Pick a relaxed styled day dress, and pair it with some casual wedges and an oversized bag.
Business: Most offices tend to have a relaxed atmosphere on Friday’s (unless you are meeting with clients) so embrace your more relaxed side. Pick a great pair of skinny jeans, and pair it with a casual sweater and some comfortable canvas shoes.
Casual: Boyfriend jeans were made for Fridays. In a more formal office you will find dress down Friday in full force, so why not dress yourself down even further. Just because you get to wear a relaxed work uniform all week does not mean you have to miss out. Pair your boyfriend jeans with an oversized t-shirt and a relaxed, oversized cardigan. Add a pair of comfortable espadrilles and you are almost weekend ready.
