You don’t know what to wear to the office? You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers! Style is such a personal matter and there really is no wrong way to wear clothes. Some situations make that decision a bit harder and one of those situations is work. Rest assure as we got some questions and answers to fill your style needs.
Q: How can I maintain my sense of style when my office has a strict conservative dress code?
Two words to always keep in mind when looking for stylish office attire is simple and elegant. You want to choose pieces that are rather classic but chic. You also want pieces that work with everything. Start with a simple black pantsuit which can be worn together or separately. Mix it up with pretty tops and blouses in jewel toned colors. Try pairing a pretty blue blouse with the pants or pair the jacket with a fitted sheath dress. Add a great pair of shoes and fun jewelry to complete the look.
Q: What shoe styles are best for the office?
As long as the shoes in question look great and are comfortable, it shouldn’t really matter what style of shoes you wear. That said, many women opt for heels. Try to opt for a classic pair with either pointy-toe or round-toe. Look for a pair in a goes-with-anything color such as black, brown, or beige. Try to avoid shoes that are more than three inches because of comfort. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of wearing heels, you could opt for flats or lower heeled shoes.
Q: What dresses work best for the office?
A pretty dress is fun and feminine. It’s also relatively easy to wear. Every woman should have at least one or two simple sheath dresses that work with or without a lot of accessories. Try pairing up a dress with crisp cardigan sweater and embellished kitten heels for a look that’s exquisitely elegant or you could wear it with a thin belt cinched at the waist and a lightweight blazer for a trendy yet professional look. Don’t be afraid to dress up your look with a pretty frock.
