Getting the right outfit to wear to the office can be tricky as repetitive business outfits might bore you. Are you ready to be the best dressed in the office? Read through for our transformative tips!

Sneak in sportswear

Athleisure is in and it’s as comfortable as it is stylish. Switch up your everyday workwear with sporty items. Swap your formal pants for sporty pants and wear with a loose button-up blazer or loosen up with a statement fanny pack and cool glasses. Suit up and then tone it down with a comfortable pair of sneakers.

New shades of black

Black can be limiting when playing around with office wear. If you are trying to open your mind to more stylish looks, challenge yourself not to wear any black for a week. Your outfits will be more colourful and look instantly ready for events you may need to go to after work.

Accessories are your best friend

Accessories have the power to transform your entire look. Think of accessories like toppings; they add an extra oomph to your outfits. The key to pulling off stylish outfits involves using the right accessories. This instantly takes your outfit from drab to fab. However, be careful not to overdo it. A simple statement piece, whether it be a necklace, earrings, shoe or bag, is all you need.

We all love our denim, but wearing denim can be boring when all you wear are your standard skinnies every day. Go beyond the conventional basics and embrace new variations of denim, from palazzo pants to rompers.

Say yes to prints

Sometimes all your office attire needs is a touch of print. Make a few button-up Ankara tops or print pants to mix into your daily routine. Introduce more stripes, polka dots, floral or plaid pieces to your looks. We recommend visiting your local consignment store to find unique print pieces. It’s more affordable there!
