It’s time to give your workwear wardrobe a spring reboot. Shake up your 9-5 and embrace this season’s floral, bold and bright colours to inject a refreshing approach to your smart look.
Life & Style have pulled together the go-to styles, so you can liven up the office with spring-ready outfits.
Blazers are a wardrobe staple that never goes out of style. From longlines, shoulder pads, to double breasted blazers, choose pretty candy coloured hues for your spring work look. Whether pink, purple, or a bright orange, there’s no better way to welcome warm weather than with a lovely statement blazer.
Otherwise, wear your everyday work blazer with a tailored floral print dress that will look appropriate for board meetings, and will have you collecting compliments all day.
Layer up like a pro and switch your classic suit look for an oversized blazer and wide leg trousers. It’s a great way to stand out by infusing your own personal style, to create the perfect balance between
polish and slouchy.
If you feel like your suit has become repetitive, invest in a few statement blouses to add a pop of colour to your weekly rotation. The contrasting tones will instantly refresh your everyday suit, which can be rotated with high waisted skirts for a gorgeous seasonal look.
Alternatively, forget the jacket to show off your embroidered detailed shirt which is a seamless way to add to your off-duty wardrobe.
Prints and Frilly Dresses
You don’t have to confine yourself to midi black dresses when it comes to workwear. Even though they are a corporate favourite, try these alternatives like asymmetric hems, button details and mid-lengths in pastel hues and leafy prints.
Flowy Blouses and Skirts
Flowy Blouses and Skirts
Go for a masculine-meets-feminine style with a flowy blouse, paired with a pleated midi skirt. This look will provide full coverage for breezier days, yet still transition nicely into your spring and summer wardrobe. Choose lighter shades of lilacs, dusty blues and light greys to stay cool and comfortable all day long. It’s trendy, neat and looks like you’ve made an effort without having to sacrifice fashion and comfort.
For casual office dress code, baby pink canvas pumps will complete any work and weekend outfits, and it’s perfect to get chores done when you’re in a rush.
Best Work Separates
When it comes to tailoring, liven up traditional monochrome colours with embroidered detailing and pops of new season colours. Whether you choose a long length coat in warm spring hues to be worn over your formalwear, or a crisp white shirt with big sleeves, teamed with high-waisted trousers in check prints, don’t be afraid to mix and match.
If you want to accessorise for work, a pair of modest earrings or a statement necklace can really help bring any outfit together.
