Designers have added life to work wear with many variations to suits and work wear; they added colour, floral prints, geometric patterns, and the most recent craze, shorts suits. Since not all of us can wear shorts suits to the office, let’s try injecting some subtle, soft hues, into our work wardrobe instead.
The Core Outfit
Taking inspiration from the Escada 2014 Resort Collection, for those that are more adventurous, you can go head to toe in a soft hue like this pretty blue tone suit pictured. Not ready to take the leap? Pair soft hues with a universal top – like a simple white, gray, or black tee on top and mix in colour with the bottoms. You can really have a ton of fun jazzing up your work style. Keep the length tame – at least knee length skirts ladies!
This summer we are seeing a lot of neutral shades or bright colours – neutral shades meaning browns, earth tones, nudes, etc. A pair of blush tone, oversized sunglasses with a rounded shape flatters and enhances a neutral tone outfit. It also goes well with soft colours, like the outfits pictured above.
For other accessories in this look we went with silver heels – which are another huge hit right now – especially these Jimmy Choo heels. It acts as a great alternative to the standard black.
A neon accessory is a must, and what better than a show-stopping (or meeting-stopping) neon bag. We chose a cream yellow Mulberry bag in the perfect size to keep your iPad and your documents.
So there’s a mix of colours going on with your look and you’re wearing this in to work. How to you keep yourself from overdoing it? Keep your makeup light and easy. Thick eyebrows are the latest fashion statement, so use an eyebrow pencil to fill them in, which instantly brightens and sharpens all of your facial features. For the rest of your face, simply use a matte bronzer to add some definition to your face contour, and a light peach gloss to add some shine to your lips.
Need to stylize your work wear for summer? The best addition would be an oversized pair of sunnies that take you from work wear to chic after work drinks with your girlfriends.
