Dressing for work can be quite stressful in the mornings, specially if you are a late wake-uper. A whole bunch of questions may arise while planning our work-proof outfits. So to make your toast and coffee moment more enjoyable, let us grant you with a very useful guide that is going to solve all your pre-coffee doubts and speed up your early work-day process a lot more. These tips may obviously vary from person to person, since your job may require different looks but if you are mostly required to be in a cool office, this guide will definitely give you some morning peace.
Business Professional Occasion
- Stick to long or ¾ sleeves. They will keep the elegance intact at all times and you shold not worry about any wardrobe fails.
- Dresses should stay underneath the knees and should not be very tight. Tight garments should totally be left for a night out or the weekend.
- Avoid cleavage by all means, this a thing that could very easily go wrong and we do not want to distract our client with a “too much skin showing” situation.
- Jumpsuits or two-piece garments a a great solution for this type of working situations.
- Your colour palate should stay within the grey, black, white and brown hues. Less is more!
Business Casual Situation
- Now you can loose the jacket and go for just the shirt. This will automatically bring the professionalism down and making it a very cool business casual situation.
- You can now be more liberal about colours, without going very crazy of course. You can now calmly add some colour to the look.
- Dresses should still stay loose and up to the knee length. Stick to classic shaped dresses and you will not go wrong.
- Shoes should generally be open and under the ankle length. This makes the look even more classy.
Smart Casual Case
- Our favourite by far, but the jewellery should still stay minimal and not too over the top since it can easily look overwhelming and out of situation.
- Shoes can now be more casual. Slippers and ballerinas become a great option and they can very easily be combined with shirts and blazers.
- Yes to jeans, BUT. Huge “but” here, because not every denim trouser is welcome into a smart casual working situation. No ripped, patterned or bleached jeans should be within your option. So dark blue or black would be just perfect for this.
