Who doesn’t love a good swath of lace and frills once in a while? Entering your 30s doesn’t mean that you need to let go of youthful and ultra-feminine designs and shades—you wear what you want! Here are a few pieces that you may want to pick up for a girly-chic aesthetic that will still keep you looking professional.

1. A pastel mini dress

Pink is a classy color no matter what age you are. Mix this hue with a mature cut and get a look that’s oozing with quiet confidence.

TRY: Plains and Prints Blush Beauty mini dress, P2,298, available at Zalora


2. A lacy top

Who says that lace looks dated? A good-fitting top with an interesting pattern can be the focal point of a monochromatic look.

TRY: Bershka Long-sleeved lace top, available at Glorietta 2, SM Aura Premier, Mega Fashion Hall, and Ayala Center Cebu

3. A one-piece dress with a nice twirl

Office wear doesn't need to be stiff. Prim and proper clothing with soft silhouettes and edges will make you look and feel more relaxed.

TRY: Max&Co. Colour-block dress with Pleating, available at C1 Bonifacio High Street Central and Shangri-La Plaza Mall

Silk is the way to go if you want to go for a totally classy look. Add interesting statement sleeves and you’re good to go!

TRY: Mango, Puffed Sleeves Silk Blouse, P3,995, available at Zalora


5. A floral skirt

Because seriously, why not? Miranda Priestly may think that florals aren’t ground-breaking, but pairing a colorful skirt with a more toned-down top may actually give you the OOTD pop that you need.

6. A strapless jumpsuit

Who says jumpsuits aren’t feminine? A strapless number with the right pattern can be soft and flattering. Just pair it with a blazer or a cardigan to add that B O S S vibe.

7. A statement cocktail dress

There will come a time when you’ll need to attend an evening function. Investing in a well-tailored piece will let your clients know that you’re both about business and style.
