Are you bored with your day-to-day work outfits. Here are a few tips that will help you to transform and spice up your boring, humdrum work wardrobe.
Add Bold Statement Jewelry
People usually reserve statement necklaces for dressy, formal affairs, but I thought it was the perfect accessory to add sparkle, interest and drama to this otherwise humdrum work ensemble. Yes, it’s flashy and very noticeable (ostentatious even) but that doesn’t mean that it is workplace inappropriate.
The key with getting away with this (depending on how liberal your workplace is) is not to over do it. I left off my bangles, wore my very small, you can’t even see them tear drop earrings and carried a smaller bag. The collar blouse also helped to conceal the necklace so that what everyone saw was a peak of it and not the entire thing.
Add A Blazer or Cardigan
If you work in an air conditioned office, then chances are you are going to need a sweater and or a blazer to keep warm during the day. A blazer or cardigan can do so much for an outfit. Make it even more visually interesting by skipping the standard office hues of navy, black and brown and opt for a bright (fuchsia, royal blue, yellow or even red) or patterned blazer instead.
I work at a law firm and there are days when I feel like I missed the memo on the gray and black attire. I think all of that gray and black would look less like a uniform if my fellow co-workers would throw in color somewhere. Shoes, scarf, a cardigan, a colorful top or skirt like I am wearing, something just to break up all of that black and gray would more chic and visually interesting.
Add Eye-Catching Shoes
Give the standard work issue pumps a rest! Opt for a strappy sandal, metallic colors, patterned or faux animal print shoes and even patent leather ones in a comfortable height to give your style a lift.
So, how are you planning to update your work wardrobe?
