Six Essential Outfits for Every Working Woman

For many of us, figuring out what to wear to work is a daily struggle. When dressing professionally, the sea of black, grey, beige, and navy pieces can become monotonous and boring, but they don’t have to be. Your outfit can help set the mood and make you feel fierce like a boss! Read on for inspiration to refresh your corporate wardrobe.

  • Skirts

Pencil skirts are a great workplace basic. This versatile piece can be paired with anything from button front blouses to fitted tees, elegant blazers to pastel cardigans. While you certainly can’t go wrong with a black or beige skirt, don’t be afraid of trying bold shades and edgy silhouettes. Pick out a stylish pleated skirt and pair it with a vibrant top and a beautiful neckpiece for a complete makeover.

  • Trousers

When we think of trousers, comfort takes priority over everything else. The right pair doesn’t just add grace, but also boosts your confidence. A pair of straight black cigarette pants are a must-have, and can be paired with a black georgette blouse to create a monochrome look. As the temperatures drop, you can’t go wrong with a pair of grey woollen checked trousers and baby pink shirt, with your hair tied back neatly.

  • Dresses

Give your work-wear a new dimension this season with the formal sheath dress. Go classy in your 9 to 5 look with this great structured piece that you can dress up or down with a blazer. Sheath dresses hug your figure and flaunt your curves gracefully. Pair it with patent leather nude or black pointed pumps and minimal silver jewellery for enthralling gazes all day.

  • Long Tops

When the weekend is just around the corner, you can dress down from your business formals while still maintaining a professional attire. With most workplaces frowning upon denims, you could don a pair of skinny trousers with a short-sleeved, turtle neck tunic or a plaid long top. Amp up the look with a pair of bright sandal heels and a chunky watch.

  • Kurtis
    Kurtis are the safest wardrobe solution to your workwear woes, as they are modest yet stylish and comfortable. While an asymmetric long kurti does conform to the formal dress code, straight-cut and A-line kurtis add a professional edge to your outfit. Don’t be shy in experimenting with small prints, stripes and checks for your everyday 9 to 5 look.
  • Sarees

Nothing can beat the age-old saree in terms of elegance and grace. Ditch your wide-bordered silk sarees and bold prints, and opt instead for simple handloom sarees for your office wear. With the current trend, cotton and linens are ideal as they are light, hassle-free and stay in place throughout the day. Pair this with a boat or collar neck blouse with long sleeves to stand out, while still looking professional.
