You have probably heard that fashion has a way of coming back around in a full circle. Trends tend to repeat themselves season after season, religiously, and one such trend that has rolled back in along with the cool breeze is the old world charm of oversized cardigans, Peter Pan collars, and ruffle sleeves. What better way to incorporate this trend than into a section of our lives where we spend a good 40+ hours every week: at work.
Whether you are looking for business casuals or unconventional pairings for the modern workplace, here are 5 inspiring looks to ensure you will be the most stylish girl in every boardroom or meeting you walk into. Time to make you look classy at your workplace while you brace yourself to crush those deadlines!
1. Pile on the Prints:
A sure shot way of making a style statement at work without actually trying too hard is to mix prints. A beautiful amalgamation of plaid and stripes is a look we second. Opt for a free-flowing striped dress and team it with a plaid cardigan to add drama to your otherwise drab office wear. Be unafraid to branch into vintage florals as well. That’s where all the fun is at!
2. Channelize your Feminine Energy
There is nothing sexier than a woman who wears her femininity like an armor. Remember that the next time you wonder what to wear to work! Tiered ruffle sleeves are nothing but old-school pizzazz, and we love it for being just the right amount of workwear appropriate and Avant-garde. Want to do more? Doll yourself up in elegant ruffles at the collar or the hemline!
3. Focus on the Fabrics
Often, we pay so much attention to the design of ensembles that the fabrics tend to take a backseat. Make a conscious choice to pick the fabrics that lay comfortably on your skin. LIVA fabric does just that for you; it moves beautifully on your frame, allowing you a graceful, unrestrained movement while you hustle.
4. Lay an Eye on Layering
Workwear for women doesn’t always mean boring monotonous clothing. You could do so much by layering basic separates to build a completely fresh outfit. Take a fitted cardigan and layer it over a basic turtleneck, a boardroom-approved style to channel the 60’s vibe. Layering can also be a great trick to keep warm stylishly, very useful when the centralized air conditioning is beyond your control!
5. Cope with the Color-Code
No matter how lovely your outfit is, it would not hit the right spots until you go for the proper hues. Tick all the boxes on being elegant by taking cues from the yester-years. Shades like powder blue, mustard, mint green, beiges, and deeper reds are not only comforting and sober as 9-to-5 jobs but also enthralling enough for after-work drinks.
Accessorize style tip: The old-school chic is back in all of its glory and, boy, are we glad! So, go ahead, and add your spin of maximalism with a statement brooch or a few strings of delicate pearls and you’ll be unstoppable at work and after.
