These are workwear outfits you actually want to wear

Super chic business outfits that won’t disappoint you.

It’s time to take your 9 to 5 style to the next level. Having an office dress code often means you don’t get to express your creative fashion skills, but the story doesn’t end here.

When it comes to business attire, it’s hard to find the right balance between casual and formal sometimes. Luckily,  there are ways you can update your workwear with splashes of colour, prints or accessories that still look professional. 

Having said that, take a look at the fun and fresh ideas on how to add that attitude to your work outfits.

Hello, dark jeans!

Trade in your favourite blue jeans or classic black trousers for dark denim. This 90s favourite can effectively transform your office attire without breaking the budget. Style it with oversized blazed and smart shoes.

Plaid suit

A suit if the ultimate work attire, but this is not your bank teller outfit. Checks are around for the last season or two, so you can’t really go wrong with pairing them with, well more checks.

If you don’t want to (or have to) look too formal, grab a pair of white trainers and give the look a sports glam touch.

Wide-leg trousers

Whether you are more keen on a classic pair of palazzo trousers or looking for a fashionable statement with culottes, wide-leg style is a way to go. Get that extra chic effect by pairing them with an oversized jacket or top. You know we love good old layering!

THE blue shirt

Oh yes, this is an iconic piece around fashion editors and bloggers! The light blue blouse had its moment a few years ago, and let me tell you, it’s not going anywhere in 2019 either. This is a piece that works so wonderfully with…well everything. Try blue jeans, contrasting dark hues such as burgundy, and even other pastels.

Belt it

Belt always does the trick. A trick that never gets old when it comes to styling pretty much any outfit.

Indeed, if you want to create a silhouette by emphasising your waist, this is your ultimate finishing touch.
