Usually when looking for a work dress, I seek out something with a sleeve and structure which often means a stiffer fabric. However that doesn’t mean that dresses in more relaxed fabrics can’t be made office-appropriate; it’s actually quite easy to do as demonstrated by today’s BusiChic.
Inspiration for those in the office when you’re not necessarily facing clients; do as Asha does by throwing on a simple cardigan. A blazer can be a little too stiff over the relaxed fabric of a frock like this but a cardigan peforms the function nicely:
Taking five with Asha –
- Day in the office: A nice pencil dress with a coloured cardigan paired with flats or heels.
- Important meetings: Suit skirt/pencil skirt paired with either collared shirts or coloured blouses and suit blazer on top. Again wrap this up with a nice pair of heels or flats.
- Desk-to-drink outfit: I tend to keep my “work appropriate” outfit however just before its time to leave for drinks; to add some glam; I will add/change jackets, jewellery, make up, shoes, bags and accessories then head out to the drinks event.
