Struggling to get your professional ensemble right? Making a fashion statement while looking elegant might sound overwhelming, but these 10 do’s and don’ts of a workwear wardrobe will get you prepping effortlessly.
When In Doubt, Do Classics
Opting for classic workwear will always work in your favour. Team up a crisp white shirt with black cropped culottes pants to give you a professional but chic look.
Top tip: Avoid busy prints that are too heavy on the eye.
Keep It Under Wraps
To preserve modesty and good taste, opt for nude or seamfree underwear that won’t show through your workwear.
Top tip: Showing off your underwear is undoubtedly unprofessional. Refrain from doing this and pair your sheer tops with slips.
Remember that you are still headed to a professional environment. Basic tonal jeans teamed up with a plain tee and blazer will work wonders.
Top tip: Steer clear from ripped jeans and slogan tees – leave them for the weekend.
Keep It Covered
Keep things sleek and professional with a pussy bow blouse that is on-trend but still feminine and stylish.
Top tip: Avoid a low-cut neck line that will display your perked secrets.
Invest In Fitting Staple Pieces
A good fitting skirt in the right length will not only flatter your figure but will also boost your confidence. Mix it up with a pair of stockings for a finished look.
Top tip: Don’t go for a too tight fit – the silhouette is already hugging your curves. Always remember to keep the length at the knees.
