What To Wear To Work

Have you been struggling with knowing what to wear for work that doesn’t consist of a black skirt, white shirt, tights and plain shoes? If that sounds familiar then you’re definitely in the right place.

I’ve been on the hunt this week for a few sophisticated and trendy work outfits that will have you looking like a spice. I’ve combined a few pieces with a splash of colour and some awesome shoes to create a stand out but professional look. If heads don’t turn and compliments aren’t thrown your way when you walk through those doors at work then let me know because that can only mean two things – either I haven’t done my job right or you’re colleagues are just jealous! I think I know which one I’d choose. Check out the four outfits below.

Working Looking 3

Here I’ve taken a statement piece – a printed pencil skirt from River Island, and used it to bring colour and trendiness to the overall look. Complimented with a clean white peplum top you can either accentuate the blue tones with some simple blue pumps, bring it back with some traditional black block heels or keep it simple with a pair of white flats. Complete the outfit by styling it with an over sized bag and trench coat.

Total Outfit Cost: £404.00

The Working Women

This corporate look includes a capped sleeve Dorothy Perkins dress and is open for an arrange of colour options. I’ve team up the look with a pop of orange seen with the pointed heels and Jaeger Clutch. This look adds some style and flair making it the focal point of the outfit. If you love the black and white colours instead, simply style in a pair of heels to match. To complete this look, combine a fitted grey blazer accentuating your waist, and finishing the the outfit off with a classic grey handbag.

Working outfit 2Feeling like you want to be bold and add a few different colours  to your work look why not style together some purple and blue tones. Team together which a white blazer or cape, some cropped pants and finish up with a gold watch. Or if you want to keep the colour to just the purple wear some black and white flats or some simple black boots. This outfit is great for the girls who want to be on trend with colours and are going for a more relaxed work, look which still maintains its professional feel.
