Breaking the monotony of that white shirt - black pants routine can be tough. With little time at hand in the morning and even less space for experimentation; choosing formals for your day-to-day routine can get boring. What you need are few hacks to refresh your office outfits to nail the boss babe look.  


1. Add a scarf








Adding a scarf to your basic outfit will definitely give it a new lease of life. Wear it as a cravat or as a scarf over your white shirts and other formal outfits to give it a spin. We’d recommend picking fresh colours to brighten up your ensemble.


This pretty green coloured scarf (Rs 799 from FabIndia) will look great on you with all those dresses.


2. Add some bling!










Who says you can’t wear bling to work? Add accents of glitter, shimmer and shine. It could be a brooch, an embellished statement bag or even just metallic piping on your blazer or shirt. Keep it subtle, yet stylish.


3. Pick the right heels

Once in a while, ditch the formal shoes and opt for heels. They have the power to add a bit of sass to your outfit, instantly. Pick comfortable ones that won't tire your feet out by the day. An added bonus? It’s also an instant confidence boost because yes, those few extra inches on your feet tend to add a skip to your step.


We think this pair of mules (Rs 1,699 on Koovs) will make your feet look pretty and prim. Shop away.


4. Serious case of Spectales

If you are still wearing a boring pair of rimless rectangle-shaped spectacles, it’s time for an update. Even if you don’t really need a pair, a stylish pair of anti-glare glasses won’t hurt, in fact, they will offer relief to your eyes.


5. Statement jewellery FTW

One piece of jewellery can transform your look. It can be something as basic as a classy choker neckpiece. Wear it with all your shirts, dresses and suits to power up. An accessory can be used to add some feminine sparkle in the boring world of greys, blues and blacks.




6. B for bag!

Bid goodbye to that basic black leather tote you’ve been carrying around for decades and switch to something bolder. Try a statement box bag in red, yellow or a print to break the monotony of the colours that are the usual suspects of work wear. This one will definitely get you the right kind of attention.


This tan bag (Rs 1,122 on Amazon) is high on style and low on your pocket - making it the perfect pick!




7. Lazer blazer!

While we all love the pinstriped grey suit, wearing it daily can get boring. Power through by adding colourful ones to your wardrobe. You can experiment with the hue, cut and style. Be it a bright colour or a new silhouette - break away from the dated!


This floral blazer will definitely (Rs 858 on Shein.in) make you look bright and beautiful.


8. Pop of colour








If you thought formals are all about stocking up on the greys, blues and blacks, you were wrong! You can totally use the charm of pastel colours to look classy. Mix it up with the usual blues to keep things neutral. We’re picturing a millennial pink pussy-bow blouse with a tailored pair of indigo culottes. Sounds sexy, right?


9. Put a belt on it!

Belts are huge this season and there’s no better time to make use of it! Pair your shift dresses with cinch belts, it’ll make your waist look slimmer. You can also wear a few slim belts and make your frame look taller.


10. Refresh the white shirt

If you have a gazillion white shirts, it’s time to refresh and reinvent a few of them. Add a beautiful collar to it or pick one with a little embellishment. It can completely change the look of your white shirt!

This embroidered white shirt (Rs 1,299 on Koovs) says more than you can ever in a plain classic. Pair it with a topknot and hit work
