Three Ways to Spice Up Your Work Wardrobe

If you work in an office like me, you know that trying to find cute, but appropriate things to wear can sometimes be a challenge. Yes, I have to make sure everything is covered and that I look the part, but I also don’t want to sacrifice my style either. Below, I put together three office-approved outfits that will have you looking and feeling on point.

  1. Don’t be afraid to try out a print or two: Something as simple as a striped dress could really make a bold statement in the office. If you’re someone that isn’t super big on bright colors, you can still keep things classic with a black and white ensemble.

2.  Add a few pops of color: Colorblocking is a good way to get creative with your wardrobe. If you want to keep things a little subtle, but still fun, try colorblocking with darker or more neutral colors. Get funky when it comes to shoes or accessories. Cinch a skirt and top combo with a belt, and bust out your quirkiest coffee mug to bring a little humor into the room.

3. Take your dress pants to a whole new level: Don’t get me wrong, I love skirts and dresses, but sometimes it’s just more practical to wear pants. Before you go reaching for your standard pair of black dress pants, try a pair in a lighter hue like ivory or pink. If you’re feeling extra fabulous, go all out with a monochrome outfit.
