While a lot of us work in organizations with strict dress codes, some of us are among the lucky few who get to dress a bit more casually to work and today’s work wear inspiration will cater to both sides.
Find a black dress that fits you perfectly and half your problems are solved! This dress can be re-rocked in so many ways e.g. by wearing with a Blazer, a cardigan or even wearing with a long-sleeved shirt underneath.
Not every time serious dresses, sometimes have fun too by switching up your work wear game with a girly dress with an a-line skirt or skater skirt.
Very easily my favorite type of dress to wear, the pinafore dress is the dress you’ll get the most wear from because you can wear it with everything from a blouse, turtleneck, shirt to a blazer or a cardigan.
Neutrals are almost as amazing as black; you can wear them with any other color and they’d work so well. An example is this nude dress which can be worn with a black blazer to work. In a more conservative setting, you’d safely wear with nude, brown or black heels and you’re complaint with your company’s dress code, however, in a less strict one, you can wear with a black or white cardi and fuchsia pink heels (pictured above).
If there’s room in your workplace for a color or two, I suggest blue. It commands attention without being too obvious or girly; if there was such a thing as a statement color, blue is it. Wear it in whatever style you fancy; wiggle dress, shift dress or kimono.
If you’re more comfortable wearing pants at work, then up your game with a jumpsuit or bright-colored pants like these orange ones. The key to making sure your pants remain work appropriate is to ensure they only skim your backside and thighs and not stick to these parts. You don’t want eyes looking elsewhere but your face when you’re talking 😉
Have an amazing week and remember, say no to boring clothes this week!
