5 Looks To Spice Up Your Work Week

What to wear 

Trying to decide what to wear from Monday to Friday can become a stressfull situation especially if you have a closet full of clothes but it still feels like you have nothing to wear. Keep on scrolling for some ideas that might just make your work week more bearable and set it off on a great fashion week.

Monday is like the “eek” day of the week you just want it over and done with and then forget about it.
Why not start it off, with a feeling of freedom and running wild, full of postive enegy. Because if you start Monday on a positive note the rest of the week might just fly by. So, go Boho in this simple yet pretty folk dress with embroidery from La Redoute . Upgrade that low-key dress with a pair of Pink sequins embellished western boots from River Island and you are ready to head out the door and into the office door. A uncomplicated yet dazzling look for a trouble-free day.

On Tuesday you are fully awake to the work week and you can dress like you mean business you are the boss lady after all. I say go all out and show your creative fashion flair in frills and check. The white high vamp slingback kitten heels from the River Island's Limited Edition will show that you are confident and unafraid. Paired with a black and white Prince of Wales check pencil skirt from Debenhams and the Ivory frilled pussy bow blouse from Studio by Preen for a touch of feminine yet strong #bosslady in charge look.

Deciding what to wear to work can often be a headache for many of us because you are often torn between wearing the usual office outfit staples or dressing in something more glam and chic.

The difficult part is that you do not want to look too plain and simple, with the basics but you also do not want to look too casual and relaxed with more trendy pieces either.

If you that is you in the morning read on for my work wear tips for the stylish office girls.

Do not get rid of your staples

Yes!! They are boring and simple but you do not have to wear them as they are. Your crisp white button down shirt may scream Plain Jane when worn alone but when dressed up with a crop top or a vest or adding interesting and statement accessories it can give you an entirely new, chic look. So do stock up on those basic staples and use them as your base to building stylish outfits for the office.

for the office

Most of our office are fully air conditioned so you can wear fashionable outerwear every day. The plus side of this is that your outerwear, whether it is a blazer, jacket or cardigan not only keeps you warm but will also add extra layering and style points to your look for that day.

Balance is key

There are so many new silhouettes on trend right now and the great thing about these new silhouettes is that they are wearable and you can include them into your work wear. Culottes with is loose and flowy silhouette and because of that makes them a chic option for a more polished look for work. Pair it with a more pieces that are more structured silhouette like a polished a blazer or a crisp button down.

Opt for sleeves

Sleeveless pieces tend to look more casual although there are some exceptions such as sleeveless shift dresses and sleeveless collared shirts. So rather opt for pieces with sleeves.

Make your daily black and white look by livening it up with colour


Work wear are often black and white but you can dress up even the most simplest to look more interesting by adding splashes of colour. Or by switching black and white with grey. But do keep in mind to wear colours suits your skin tone and brings out her best and fits in with your daily work wear basics.

Work and skimpy are not a good match

Keep it stylish and avoid off shoulder tops, sheer dresses and to short mini dresses Yes they are all very chic and on trend but a corporate office environment is not the place to wear these street style pieces. Remember if it shows too much skin it is an automatic no-no. You can add pieces like a trench to add a layer of length. Skirt hemlines should finish above or below the knee, as it will make your legs look slimmer and longer.
