Have you ever opened up your wardrobe and sat gazing at the mess, wondering what to wear to work? Join the club! We have all gone through the same melodrama, thinking we don’t have enough outfits or that the ones we have are not workwear appropriate. While a completely new wardrobe is slightly farfetched, what is truly achievable is choosing the right formal kurtis for office wear. Let us guide you through it all so you can effortlessly up your workwear statement and slay it Monday through Fridays.
A common misconception is that ethnic Indian wear is for festivities only. However, when paired in the right manner, a kurti with leggings can be extremely comfortable for long work hours, in turn translating to a better workday.
When it comes to workwear, the key thing to keep in mind is to hold comfort and understated elegance paramount. Whether it’s in the boardroom speaking your mind or at the desk closing deals, a kurti in the appropriate hue and fabric, can take you a long way.
Wondering how to achieve it all like the boss woman that you are? Then put that big presentation on hold and take notes here, please.
- Ditch the Dupatta for a Hassle-Free Work Sesh
An easy styling hack which speaks of modernity and the contemporary times is to lose the dupatta and opt for kurti sets that look smart and well put-together. With plenty of options in breezy silhouettes as well as well-fitted pieces like this printed blue kurta, there is no longer a need to constantly adjust the dupatta. You could also spruce things up with a cropped cotton jacket or a stole that keeps things vibrant at the office without taking anything away from your work.
- Choose the Fabric with Utmost Care
The fabric of your ensemble plays a huge role in how comfortable you feel, especially if you plan on sitting at the desk for a couple of hours straight. Invest in quality fabrics that will serve longer hours without wrinkling or making you feel sweaty or itchy.
Lightweight, breathable fabrics like LIVA are ideal for workwear dressing. Pay attention to what you have lined up for the day. A clean kurti in a stiff fabric will work wonders for that big meeting while a flowy one like LIVA’s can have you moving about comfortably when there are a lot of errands on your agenda.
- Uplift your Outfits by Styling them Right
Kurtis for work have so much to offer and can even reflect your mood. For days when you would like to stay focused and get things done, an elegant monochrome number with delicate jewelry is our bet. While for days when you are feeling creative, team them with some dhoti pants or a maxi skirt underneath. You could also try a palazzo with kurti combination to steer away from boring while staying workwear-appropriate. Just pay heed to not over accessorize as we still intend to keep all the attention at how good we are at our job.
- Experiment More and Discover Your Style
You can always add an edge to your wardrobe by experimenting with colours, patterns, and a variety of styles. Finding the right style that suits you best is what will make you feel comfortable and confident all day. Go for elegant straight fits or flowy bold prints if you want to make a statement. Playing with colours, or atypical cuts and patterns (think bold stripes or shirt collars) such as in this straight-cut LIVA kurta can also give you an extra edge for those days you want to make an impact. Complete your outfit with accessories like hanging tassels or simple hoops and have some fun.
- Choose Co-ordinated Ethnic Wear Sets
Who says workwear-appropriate co-ords only mean sharply tailored suits? For a desi twist to your office wear, opt for a short kurti and pants combo or a co-ordinated kurti set with printed palazzos. From a variety of formal kurtis in bold colours for the statement maker to one featuring quirky designs for the pattern enthusiast, there are numerous options you can choose from. Losing the bling and extravagant embroidery won’t hurt, after all!
Most LIVA kurti sets are not only functional but extremely stylish, keeping in mind the urban woman who wears many hats throughout her day. Whether you are looking for designer kurtis online or simple cotton kurtis for women, there is a plethora of new-age styles available that can make you look like the boss-woman you are, all the while helping you live your flow.
No more excuses for turning up and looking bland at work anymore!
