Five days out of the week, every woman asks herself, “What should I wear to work? It’s not easy putting together outfits that are subtle enough for a professional environment, yet stylish enough to stand out and make a positive impression.


Work attire is a tricky subject. Different environments call for different ensembles. Committing an at-work fashion faux is a legitimate offense and can distort your image as a valued employee and even prevent you from getting ahead.


Labeled as a “professional” doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a suit but will entail some kind of tailoring, so it could be a jacket, smart dress, tailored trousers or pencil skirt.
Stuck in the boring office look attire? It’s time to reinvent your staples to give you the extra at your work place.


Black and white is a universal work staple, opt for a gingham skirt, a v-neck work t-shirt and a statement necklace that will make you stand out in an office filled with people wearing black and white.



A colored Pencil skirt with a zip detail is an ultimate style for work. Do justice to it by pairing it with a button up shirt that matches the pencil skirt.

Swap your regular white button up shirt with a boat or wound neck shirt and upgrade that slim belt with a statement bold belt.

A successful workplace dressing is a subtle combination of ‘fitting in’ and ‘standing out’. So the trick is to adhere to the accepted dress code, but find tricks and twists that help you project your own personal image and identity.


Remember, dressing 9-5 attire does not only equate to black and white, stiff and boring clothes.
