Hey precious readers
The new year is here, the holiday is behind us and life must go on.
For those who have to go back to work, or are starting work I have put together a few pointers to guide you in case you are wondering how to spice up your work wardrobe.
Dressing for the work place doesn't mean you have to ditch your personal style and conform to wearing monochrome boxy suits..
Tailored suits

weather you go for a pants suit or skirt suit, make sure it is tastefully tailored to fit your body. Well fitting pants with slim legs and a tapered jacket work well to bring out your femininity.

The piping detail on this skirt suit adds an interesting twist yet it is not too distracting. The color white is a break from the traditional black and navy suits.
The skirt should be fitting but loose enough to comfortably sit in.

Wrap dress
Classic DVF wrap dress.
This dress is perfect for almost any body type. It is great for accentuating the waist. This adds a little sexiness without going overboard.
To accessorise this dress, pair it with a belt. Skinny belts work well for petite frames and larger belts for curvy frames.

Shirt dress

This dress is very chic and adds flair to your office look. For the traditional work place, it is best worn with pumps or peep toe shoes. Strappy sandals are a bit casual for the office

Keep your accessories chic and subtle. They should not be too distracting i.e. in bright colors or too glitzy unless your work environment allows it.

Skinny belts to accentuate your waist and add class to your outfit.

Scarves and ties to add color to your office attire.

Adorn your outfit with a simple brooch.



Peep toes for the office.
