In the early days, dressing for work was easy enough when business suits were the norm and the only colours that seem to be appropriate were the neutrals such as black, grey, brown, navy blue, tan and white. These days, we definitely have more choices and flexibility when it comes to work clothes, especially if your work place allows business casual attire. Being a fashionista myself, I always try to be creative when dressing for work, but still projects traits almost all employees should such as hard-working, professional, neat, or some variation on those themes. My mantra – keep it covered, neutral and classic!
Here’s an example of one of my favourite business casual outfit – combining neutral colours, classic clothing style such as pencil skirt and collard shirt and only showing appropriate amount of skin. The creative part that can be easily achieved is adding a pop of colour (try to use only one accent colour, and repeat it 2-3 times for a complete look) and/or choosing garments with different pattern or texture such as simple prints, lace or sequin. Be careful, don’t overdone it!!!
