Passion for fashion is all the time, because it is Monday, with additional working hours before, a smile on your face trying on clothes, but in the end, the more the dull happy state of mind, choose the colors of luxurious combination to with your happiness on Monday?
Because work problems often appear what what to wear? From Monday to Friday are related, why don’t you take a deep breath, put our creative work fashionable personage. So here are 5 looks & outfit ideas for work, to get you from Mondays to Fridays:
CLASSIC that is probably the most common and the most simple office dress up, no matter what’s your job can do it.
The CASUAL business look, You can wear jeans to work is actually quite easy to do and very versatile. TIP is always wear high heels and a very smart/women coat, a coat and a professional package. According to your work, enjoy the accessories, and even shoes and handbags.
CARELESS CHIC is a looks a little prefer fashion, but for the trained eye, they are worth of street style. The TIP is to: clash different style items, play with shapes (slouchy versus fitted), with looks (feminine and masculine). Heels look best with this style, yet brogues or oxfords do the trick as well.
GLAMOROUS in the office are all those sexy woman to rule the world, and would rather have bright lips, sky high-heeled shoes and clothing. The TIP is always in the posh fabulous heels. Expensive perfumes, rich fabrics, pencil skirts and silky blouses, long trousers, statement golden necklaces, brand watches and massive bags or clutches. These ladies are not afraid to flaunt it all.
EDGY look not to faint of heart, not all of the work area, though if I may say, you can add a faint edge any appearance and escape from it. This kind of style is more suitable for the creative work and less strict office clothes, so they can add some things: boots, leather, T-shirt, dark lips, nail art, tennis shoes.
Dress codes are just one of those talking points that seem to cause more confusion than they dispel, regardless of whatever good intentions may be behind them. There is nothing that induces eye-rolling and a unison chorus of reluctant groans like a discussion about the office dress code…or at least, it has that effect on me.
Add to that the ever-increasingly casual culture of public life (sweat suits, flip-flops, yoga pants…argh!), and it is no small wonder that many of today’s office workers are left scratching their heads as to what the rules of what to wear to work really are.
If this sounds familiar to you, you should know that help has arrived. After an exhaustive research process in which many potato chips and soy chai lattes sacrificed themselves to the cause, I have been able to compile a handy quick-reference guide to help you dress for the office, whatever type of office that may be.
Take your fashion cues from those around you
Don’t misunderstand me; I’m not saying that you have to start dressing like Mabel from Accounting, with her calf-length dirndl skirts and a pair of orthopaedic shoes that could blot out the small island nation of Vanuatu in one stomp. The goal here is not so much to imitate, but to try to determine exactly which way the sartorial wind is blowing.
To do so, you want to look beyond the cubicle next to you. Instead, look to the most successful people in your office. Look at the way they put themselves together, and try to envision what kind of wardrobe combinations you already have hanging in your closet that might fit the prototype for your particular institution’s culture.
If you find yourself falling short of clothing options, chances are you are probably going to have to go shopping. Don’t let this overwhelm you. Think about what you have seen on some of the most successful people in your work environment, think about what you have in your closet, then pick up a magazine or two or go online and have a look at some of the fashion blogs and websites out there.
Choose some pieces that speak to you and that you think might work for your body type, and formulate a tactical shopping plan.
Does this work? Choosing the right clothes for the right office
While no two work environments will ever be alike, there are certain pieces that will work in some environments and not others. Knowing your own (and its official policies) is the key to getting it right ultimately.
That said, there are a few clothing items in particular that seem to consistently pop-up as sticking-points for employees struggling with dress codes.
As old-fashioned as it sounds, hosiery is something that is still required in many more formal corporate environments. Those who work in more casual or creative environments (think call centers, fashion magazines, or art galleries) will invariably be allowed more freedom to ditch the pantyhose, especially in the warmer summer months.
If you are in doubt as to whether or not your office frowns upon a pair of bare legs and you can’t find any answers by looking at your company’s dress code, take your cues from senior members of staff. If they are able to go without hose, you should be fine. However, even if you are able to ditch the hose in an office environment, it’s best to choose a shoe that has more coverage to avoid looking and feeling too exposed.
If you work in finance, law, or any other type of formal corporate environment, you can forget about denim – it’s never going to happen.
Less traditional offices (including creative environments) usually have a casual dress policy on either a given day of the week, or more and more frequently, all the time. While denim is almost always allowed in this environment, it is important to choose your denim carefully.
Leave your distressed, acid-washed, and tie-dyed denim at home and opt for clean, solid dark washes. Avoid anything too tight or with too low a waistband; nobody wants or needs to see what you have on underneath your jeans.
Unless you work in fashion or in the kind of relaxed, start-up venture environment that seems to only exist in the television programs I watch, shorts are probably a no-go. Even if you are lucky enough to be able to wear a pair of shorts to the office, make sure that they are a longer, Bermuda type style and pair them with closed toe flats or loafers if you are planning on wearing them with bare legs.
Paired with a boyfriend blazer and a button down shirt, this is a look that can be chicly androgynous and unexpected if the environment allows.
4. Spaghetti strap anything
Nope. Not going to work. Even if you think you’ve covered your bases and styled your thin strap top with a cardigan or jacket, you may need to remove the jacket at some point, and then you will be out of luck. Always be prepared to have to remove a layer, even in the dead of winter.
In any work environment where you might be tempted to wear a thin strap top, opt instead for a sleeveless blouse that extends to the edge of the shoulder. If you have to think about what to do with your bra strap, or think you might need to wear a strapless bra, the strap is too thin and you should choose another top.
5. Open-toe shoes or sandals
In formal corporate environments, a sling back pump may be appropriate, but an open toe shoe is probably not acceptable. Just make sure that your shoes look conservatively sophisticated (by which I guess I mean expensive), and that they don’t make that “slap, slap, slap” noise when you walk.
For less formal office environments, open toe shoes should be fine, just choose a pair that is not too sexy (i.e. no glitter, platforms, or (shudder) clear heels). More coverage is better than less, although those who have a lot of creative freedom at work will probably be able to wear even the strappiest of sandals with ease.
However, flip flops do not belong in any office environment, no matter how relaxed. If you are still knocking sand out of your shoes from your last beach holiday, they’re probably not appropriate for the office.
Your grandmother was right
As they say, sometimes the best ways are the old ways. One of the easiest ones to keep yourself in check if you’re unsure something is appropriate is to ask yourself if your Grandmother would approve of it. Consider each piece of clothing individually rather than as the sum of all of the parts to your look, and ask yourself, “What would Grandma think?” If you’re pretty sure that Grandma would send you home to change, choose another piece.
While you can certainly find any number of office environments that will prove to be exceptions to these guidelines, overall they are an excellent way to keep yourself on the right side of your boss (and your Grandmother) when you dress for work in the morning.
