10 Workwear Rules for Every Woman

Five days every week, we wake up with a burning thought of "what to wear to work". Getting dressed for the office can be so difficult especially when your work dress-code is very strict. And it's very hard to make a decision from Monday all through Friday - you cannot over-dress or under-dress, you need to mix conventional with comfortability, it has to go with the season and the day of the week, it shouldn't be boring, it should have a feel of your personal style, and so many more decisions to make.

Different professions have different requirements too. But everything boils down to 10 simple rules.

Follow these rules and dressing to work will be easy as a piece of cake.

Get The Layering

A simple LBD or pencil skirt can be a great outfit for the work place. But try adding a blazer, jacket, or even an extra top. This will make you look even better.

Build Up Your Staples

A well-fitted wrap dress, your sleek pencil skirt, and a classic button-down are the basic outfits you will need for an everyday work look. So go ahead and invest in simple and yet chic starter pieces. Your Monday to Friday dressing decisions will be easier.

Achieve Balance

Many women like bold colours and graphic prints. But you can go over-the-top too. The best thing to do is balance out with more unusual pieces and statement cuts that will make you look sexy yet professional.

Dress The Way You'll Love To Be Addressed

We all have our lazy work days, but remember, what you wear tells your colleagues who you are. You should certainly not overdress, but make sure that you don’t wear anything that is stained, too revealing or torn as well.

Comfortable Heels

If you are going to spend all day in stilettos make sure you have a pair that can get you through the day without any blisters.

Try Mixing Different Prints

Prints can be sometimes intimidating, but you can mix and match quite easily once you get the hang of them. Try layering prints in a similar colour palette but with different sizes. This will prevent you going too over-the-top.

Stay Away From Spaghetti Straps

Avoid any top with a plunging neckline or straps that are so thin that there is no coverage.

Upgrade Your Casual Favourites

A sandal or sweatshirt can be good for work. However a better option can be to get an updated version of your favourite weekend wear. Try simple cuts, chic embellishments, and luxury fabrics.

Get a Good Work Bag

Whether you need an oversize tote to fit your laptop or a small clutch to carry everything, it's essential to get a strong and comfortable work bag and make sure it matches your outfit perfectly.

Dress Up Your Denim

There was a time when denim was not acceptable in many offices. But these days, a good pair of jeans is totally OK. You can wear a darker wash. Try out styles like flares or trouser cuts to look more sophisticated and stay clear of tight jeans or skinnies unless you work in a creative environ.
