After the exciting holiday season and a promising start to the New Year, it’s time to get back to the grind! With the fashion world evolving fast enough, the work culture and work dressing is changing too with a bit more relaxation given to work looks. And if your boss is one of those who likes to see a printed tie with an otherwise mundane suit or will complement the way you pull off those snakeskin brogues and tailored culottes; then these back to work looks are going to get you straight to up that ladder!
To make those Monday mornings a bit more bearable, you can look good to feel good. Women can go for ruffled blouses tucked into crisp pencil skirts and pumps to look picture-perfect even on the busiest Monday mornings. Men can go for a classic navy blazer and pair it with a burgundy shirt and beige trousers for a toned-down yet dapper vibe. Add some colours to your Monday mornings, rather than just black, whites and browns; and get rid of those blues forever!
Tuesday client meetings
Now, we all know that handling clients is a massive task, but at the same time, it is very crucial for elevating your corporate graph. Hence, you need to look good to make a lasting impression on your clients. Ladies, dress up in a well-tailored pair of checked trousers, a crisp white shirt and chic leather loafers to make a positive impression on your clients. Men can sport a tweed blazer, striped shirt, well-fitted trousers and tan derby shoes for the perfect meeting look.
As soon as Wednesday comes, we have mixed feelings – glad to survived half the week, but mourning the fact that there’s still halfway to go. But it gives you all the more reason to show up at office in your best of clothes, specially if you have an important presentation to give. So, ladies, it’s the best time to don on that pinstriped blazer and formal skirt with a neutral blouse underneath. Men can definitely go for a corduroy blazer in a rich navy or charcoal grey paired with dark brown oxfords and ditch the shirt for a turtleneck for a suave look. Your stylish outfits, coupled with your confidence & efficiency, will make it the best presentation ever!
Thursday board meetings
Board meetings are the perfect opportunities to impress all the top guns at work with your flawless work updates and on-point outfits. Ladies can opt for pastel-coloured blouses tucked into navy or grey or burgundy cropped trousers. As for men, they can definitely go for a wing-collared white shirt and ditch the silk tie for a knitted one. Layer it with khaki blazer, dark blue slim fitted trousers and olive penny loafers for a suave vibe, fit for the most important board meetings.
Thank God it’s Friday! The day you feel happiest going to office, as you know there are better days coming – Saturday & Sunday! So why not celebrate it with some smart business casual dressing? Women can flaunt a smart pair of culottes with silk blouses in shades like dusty pink or melange grey tucked in, and top it off with minimalist jewellery and ankle boots that work at office and take you effortlessly to post-work plans too. As for dapper dudes, you can ditch the shirt for a Henley t-shirt or plaid shirt; layer it with a twill jacket, well-fitted chinos and leather loafers. Here’s to the last day of work. Cheers!
With your weekly look book sorted, you can delve right back into work in style! Stand out among the corporate crowd with your style statements and work with confidence & sincerity, and impressing the boss will be a piece of cake!
