Every workplace has its own set of style rules, but we dare you to try these tricks to revamp your work wardrobe. Besides, there's nothing wrong with shaking things up, and there's no reason to be scared—these minor changes are still wearable!
1. Experiment with other prints and embellishments.
Pinstripes, houndstooth, polka dots, paisleys, and tiny florals are the tried-and-tested print squad in the workplace, but you can be bolder by wearing unexpected print patterns like brocade or art deco patterns.
2. Choose quality over quantity.
Yes, it's fun to own a closet brimming with clothes, but it's important to prioritize stocking up on the workwear essentials first. When you've got the basics, putting together winning outfits in the morning will be a breeze. You may use our guides to workwear staples and office footwear to evaluate your closet.
3. Be open to try a trend...
But only if you are extremely ready to commit to it and if you wear only one trend at a time. Opt for trendy pieces that are relatively safe choices to upgrade your office look. To find out if a certain piece is safe, ask yourself this clever yet no-brainer question: Does it look like a tweaked version of a classic item?
A good example would be Kim Jones' oversized puff sleeves blouse with 3D floral embellishments—it's simply a fashionable upgraded version of a white blouse. Other great examples are culottes (a hybrid of a midi skirt and a pair of trousers), pleated leather skirts (just a change in fabric from the usual pleated skirts), military jackets (blazers with more design details), and snakeskin booties (booties with an exotic texture).
