As we return to the office over the next coming weeks, it’s time to swap out the sweats for office wear ready pieces. Figuring out different outfits for every day of the week can be challenging, but the key is to balance minimalist pieces that are versatile and timeless with a few colourful styles. Our stylists have put together some tips for negotiating the workforce’s dress code.
1. Set Your Image
Pay attention to what kind of image you would like to project when planning your outfits. Defining your style is crucial for dressing for success in the workforce.
2. Understand what works for you
Take this opportunity to understand your body shape and discover what styles work best for your shape. Opt for colours that are work appropriate and flatter you the most.
3. Organise your outfits
Work with your schedule to organise your outfits ahead of time, and remember to keep in mind any upcoming events, your calendar and even the weather! Pre-planning your outfits helps set up your day, ease your mind and get you focused for the day ahead.
4. Consider dress codes
Whilst many offices are shifting dress codes towards a more casual outlook to work wear fashion, it is important to consider dress codes at your workplace. There are expectations and a specific company image that you should reflect and match with what you wear.
