In the fashion world today, mass market clothing is increasing rapidly; it is almost like the uniform days are back on the stage again!
Shopping for workplace wears these days has become kind of excruciating! If you are a stylish lady and your office is freewheeling on dress code, you still have to be unique and stand out from the mass-market crowd.
I have rounded up 6 Amazing ways to boost your office dressing game.
Play Match up – I kinda agree professional attire shouldn’t be stuffy! But if you are trying to uptight your game – consider mixing up eccentric with conservative. The cropped pant and the wrap-front blazer are a fresh update on the two-piece suit. It won’t feel too out-there for the corporate world.
Doesn’t all have to be suit always – A midi skirt with a nice pussy bow top is also a go for the office girl wishing to slay stylishly!
Bring your chiffon to your work . Wear it above a wide leg pant to create a chicky but corporate style.
Maintain a colour pattern – switch from your regular black, white and grey to burgundy, Marsala and Glaucous
Marsala colour ruffled top above a brown to skin shade body fitting skirt.
3. Mindful of fabric – Well anything goes these days; sad enough! I still disagree that spandex materials are to be worn to the office. Even if your colleagues have taken some liberties, you wouldn’t want your choices to make you appear in a negative way in the eyes of those who understands workplace dress code.
4. Avoid Trend driven style – if you wake up and find out that ladies are wearing bodycon, crop top or whatever inappropriate number they are wearing to work, don’t follow them, a good tailored pencil skirt would give you an edge anytime any day. crop tops, or crop-top-inspired clothing this is a NO NO for the workplace.
5. Keep your Accessories simple – bold earrings, loud make up, flamboyant hair styles all belong to the club house and not the office, a simple conservative accessory can also reflect your individual style.
just a little of each.
6. Less Exposure – well not just body parts, if you have got tattoos, piercings and ankle chains should be put away or covered properly as the case may be.

Unless you have a better definition or your own definition of what fashion is – we better just stick to the global definition which is: a popular style of clothing, hair design or even behaviour. Fashion can be a manner of doing something which could mean a manner of dressing e.g. she dresses younger than her age. Fashion can also be to put something in a particular form e.g. keeping your natural hair is a fashion.
Well let me not bore you with definitions that we are all aware of.
So how can you get away with fashion crime? Oh Yes there are “fashion crimes” let’s say things you can NEVER be caught in or don in public whichever sounds okay with you. Like a granny wearing a crop top or 16yrs wearing a granny undy! Well it is indeed a crime a pardonable one depending on who is the judge…
Recently, I got called out for wearing a red lipstick to work I’m like wait a sec… This is 2017! But it didn’t matter I had to add a nude colour lip gloss to tone down the colour. That is how it is done, you improvise
You may not completely erase the crime, in the fashion world you don’t get the chance to testify, the verdict is passed immediately!
So to prevent a fashion crime, you must know what crime you are about to commit.
Make sure it fits.
If the gloves don’t fit… please don’t wear it! Understand your body type and go for clothing’s that work for you best. If you are chubby avoid wearing Lycra spandex fabrics. Avoid exposing your not so flattering area like the stomach region, make jackets your best friend and wear deep colour regularly. If you are skinny well, wear more flares and patterns the create size illusion
Avoid applying too much colour on your face, go for more natural colours but if you ever get caught using too many colour don’t panic, just tone the colours in other areas make sure that your face will be the only place with multi-colour and stick to mono tone in the other areas like your cloth, shoe and bag should all be one shade to avoid a colour festival incident.
The Glasses Trend
Here is the thing; wearing a pair of glasses makes you look smart but having a brain actually makes you look smarter! How about that? Either there is a good medical reason why you have to wear a pair of glasses or you don’t include it as your fashion accessories. To avoid this go for contact lenses, you would look charming rather than trying to look smart.
I agree sometimes we wanna go free-buffing or say do more to look sexy. Give whatever reason that justifies this style but do not go comando in transparent clothing. Comando is not best in loose materials or if you have a heavy rear. Just keep it simple in jeans, closely fitted pants not skirts or dresses.
I can’t say that I hate colours because it is almost sounding like I do; colours are good best for summer you know but not well for hair. Pink, blue green I don’t know these are not colours that should be anywhere near your hair.
Mother of all crimes is Panty hose + sandal or peep toes. This is a NO NO! well the solution is simple DON’T wear it! DON’T wear IT!
