Best of Office Weekly Roundup: Office Fashion
For those of us who work in 9-5 jobs in an office environment, it’s always important to not only be comfortable so you can be as productive as you can possibly be, but also look like a professional so others can take you seriously. In this week’s roundup, we look at some of the best outfits and accessories that will make you the envy of all your coworkers. Time to upgrade your style with these office fashion inspo.
Everyone loves Fridays (well, everyone who doesn’t have to come in on weekends), so having a more relaxed outfit for T.G.I.F. makes it even easier to take in the fact that the only thing keeping you from a fun weekend of activities and relaxation is a few more hours. Bright colors also radiate positivity and make you stand out in a good way.
When it’s time to present your new business plan to investors or you’re heading to your next board meeting, you want everyone to know you are someone who is to be taken seriously while also not being distracted by what you’re wearing. The conservative look helps achieve this with solid colors that are neither too bright nor too dark.
In an age where nearly all of your portable devices (and even your computer) can tell you the time accurately, watches have become redundant, but far from obsolete. Big watches have become a hit with females whereas before, men only wore them. Wristwatches in different colors and materials can compliment virtually any look you’re going for. A stainless steel watch can be used for a no-frills look while a multicolored watch can look more modern and more aware of the time you’re living in (no pun intended).
A little bit of flash is never a bad thing, and the right jewelry can make a person look like someone of high value or even make them seem more important than they might be. Ear studs are almost always a good bet over large earrings that dangle anytime you walk or cough, and necklaces and bracelets can guide a person’s eye to different parts of your outfit.
The term ‘bad hair day’ exists for a reason. As important as it is to keep your outfit looking immaculate, you also have to pay attention to your hairstyle. Keeping your hair neat and clean makes you look more stable and gives off the impression that you leave no detail neglected, which adds to the professional look you want others to notice.
So whether you’re working at a cubicle or you’re the powerful executive who drives your company to success, always make sure you look the part while getting hard work done.
