Being all classy with the Right Work Wear

Being all classy with the Right Work  Wear

The concept of dressing classy for office isn’t a tough nut to crack, contrary to popular belief. The definition of class is not measured by the designer brand you wear. In fact, it has nothing to do with designer labels. All you need is a little upgrading here and there and you can easily achieve the look on business magazines that you usually fantasize about.

Here’s our take on the classier look you want to achieve.

Aim for timeless, not trendy

Buy basics that are truly timeless and look good. These include:

  1. Dress pants: Have at least three in neutrals shades such as navy, blacks and grays. These will go well with all our shirts and jackets.
  2. Dress shirts: Again, invest in good quality shirts. Have at least 10 of these, each with some distinct feature or style. You can go for some that have pleats, cuffs on the sleeves, buttoned shirts and some pin stripes to give your body some shape and length with wither a v-shaped neck or a round one.
  3. Skirts: You will again need a minimum of 3 of those. One pencil skirt, an A-line skirt, and one that is more airy and flowing for semi-casual days. Just remember they don’t cling onto your body in a way that looks uncanny.
  4. Suit: The most important essential of any business wardrobe is a suit. Be it a black, navy or lighter brown, you have to have one. If you can’t seem to afford one at the moment, consider wearing your blazers with shirts, but it should be a high-quality one.

Aim for quality not quantity when it comes to shoes

 

Always purchase shoes you are sure will last 2-3 years. Find at least 3 comfortable pairs: one higher pump style, a comfortable flat in neutral shades with some embellishment, and perhaps a kitten heel.  Always go for shades that are neutral, especially when purchasing shoes specifically for office wear.  Black and browns are your best bet. The ideas here is to go for classic shoes that will last longer than investing in pieces that won’t last or wear out too quickly. Nothing can ruin a complete look more than a worn out shoes especially in the office with all those competing colleagues.  

Don’t overdo makeup

 

You are going to the office, not a late night party with friends, so don’t look like you dressed for one. A little makeup goes a long way. Wearing heavy foundation and loose powder with bold lipstick is not the right way to go about it. If you can’t seem to decide what to apply, remember the golden rule of blush, mascara, and a lipstick to give your face a little bit of definition and a pop of color.  The goal is to look classy and elegant at the same time. A neutral lipstick shade, thick mascara, and a little touch of pink on the apples of your cheeks and you are all set for your office look

Opt for clothes are your perfect fit

 

There are few things more vulgar than a woman wearing skin tight clothes with visible flab showing all over her waist or back. If you get this wrong, even the most beautiful of garments can end up looking tawdry on you. Allow yourself some breathing room because you need it. Office clothing needs to give an impression of professionalism and nothing more.

So let your credit card have a break for some time and invest wisely in what makes you look classy and work appropriate. Lastly, don’t forget to wear the most important thing, to smile! Let it be the confidence boost you need, and believe us, it’s a free of cost makeover on you.
