Outfit Ideas – Work Wear

Waking up early for work every day is a nightmare and on top of that, it’s during these early hours that we have to put together our outfit for the day. Lost for inspiration? We have constructed some gorgeous outfits that can be mixed and matched with different pieces from your own wardrobe.

Work Wear – Dress Outfit

A bright dress with bold accessories makes the perfect outfit for a comfortable, effortless look. We would suggest wearing one bold statement piece and pairing it with darker colours to make sure you don’t look too loud. The Confashion shirtdress looks elegant for daytime and will keep you comfortable and cool in the office, but pairing it with the De Siena sandals and Florian Vienna tote bag makes the outfit more than suitable for work. The Abbott Lyon watch completes the outfit.

If you like sporting dark outfits with pops of colour, this is the one for you. The Thisisnon Boxy Blouse paired with the Plakinger tapered trousers that feature a hint of gold is a stylish combination suitable for anyone. Pair this outfit with some bright accessories like the Aevha London tote and De Siena multi-coloured sandals to add some excitement to the look. Throw in some gold accessories to compliment the gold in the trousers and warm colours of the shoes and bag and your outfit is complete!

This outfit is perfect for people who love colour and will bring some brightness and life back into the office. Since the Victor Xenia skirt is the statement piece for this look, we’ve stuck to a minimal theme for almost all the other pieces. As the skirt looks amazing paired with white, we chose the Uzma Bozai Eva top in white and De Siena mule sandals in white. Gold accessories perfectly compliment the outfit so we chose the Maria Francesca Pepe thin bangle cuff and the Payson Ni yellow gold-plated necklace. Pair the skirt with another bright colour that looks great with red… we love the Aevha London shoulder bag in teal.

This last outfit is perfect for people who prefer neutrals – it is comfortable yet stylish and perfect for the office. We chose the Hibourama backpack as the statement piece and paired it with a simple blouse and trousers. The Stephanie Renoma Oversized Navy Polka Dot shirt matches seamlessly with the Navy Baji trousers (which we absolutely love!) by Lucy Brochard. To balance the backpack, we chose the De Siena kitten heels in nude and a classic Michael Kors slim runway watch. Add a statement to the look with the Edge of Ember Sophea necklace and bring a stylish flair to the office.
