It’s 9 am but you still haven’t decided what you should wear for the meeting.
Sifting through your clothes, you know it’s time your work wardrobe got a boost of refreshment.
After all there’s so much more to formal wear for women than just basic white shirts and pencil skirts.
Our guide to a killer work wardrobe will show you how.
Afraid you’ll look a bit underdressed for the client presentation? Just slip on a blazer. That’s how easy it is. The versatile garment adds a structured look to most outfits. Pair it with a sheath dress or trousers for a look that exudes power and confidence.
If your dress code is a bit more restricted, opt for neutral hues like gray, white, black, and navy blue. Or else, you could experiment with blush pinks and other light hues. Trust this subtle olive green top by LIVA to go perfectly with your black blazer.
You don’t always need a blazer and trousers to get the sharp business look. A dress will work just as well. But watch the silhouettes. It’s best to avoid high-low hemlines or overly revealing designs. Our favorite pick of formal dresses for women is the tried and tested sheath dress. It epitomizes unmatched elegance with its classic appeal.
However, when you’re seeking a change from the usual, a well-cut A-line dress would be perfect. If casual clothing is acceptable, you could opt for trendy options like this shirt dress from LIVA or a shift dress paired with oxford shoes for a balanced look.
3. Trousers And Pencil Skirts
Trousers and pencil skirts lengthen your appearance. The best part about them is that you can pick from a variety of silhouettes, take for instance these flared pants by LIVA. More specifically, high-waist formal pants for women are a blessing when you want to look taller without having to slip into heels. Straight-cut pants are standard if you prefer to keep things minimal.
Pencil skirts too are a staple when it comes to business formals for women. Need a statement number? Invest in a chic leather one to go with your silk blouse. It’s sure to lend you a sophisticated aura all without you having to slip into layers of clothing.
4. Turtlenecks And Blouses
We all know that blouses are indispensable. They’re easy to carry off and their soft finish gives them a no-frills appeal. There’s not much contemplation concerning the garment. A slick one like this creation by LIVA can tie down the look effortlessly regardless of whether it’s paired with a pair of trousers or a well-cut pencil skirt.
Turtlenecks are another worthy addition. They can instantly ramp up your ensemble with their minimalism and sophistication. Layer a blazer over one and look like the ultimate boss woman in a matter of seconds.
Lastly, don’t forget to accessorize. A statement watch and a handbag are a must. Understated jewelry is welcome as a finishing touch. Shoes too can be experimented with. Most of your wardrobe essentials would look great when paired with heels that are comfortable to walk in. Time to start putting together your killer wardrobe! Pick from other office-suited styles by LIVA which are organically crafted and perfected to suit your modern design sensibilities.
