Despite the hustles, the life of a working woman has abundant perks. Namely,
Being able to reward yourself with indulgent dessert
Buy yourself a quality Netflix package
Wear sharp outfits to establish your #GirlBoss status for real.
Now, for those of you who have a stringent dress code at work, it might not seem all rainbows and butterflies… and if I said that I feel the same, I’d be lying. There’s no one, including me, who can deny the magic of well-tailored coats and shapely pencil skirts. Studies insist that a sharply dressed worker is taken more seriously than the opposite.
So, yes, hardcore corporate dressing can seem like a snooze but only if you give in to frumpy blazers, dull colours and ill-fitted pants. Want to dress to impress? One fix is to try (and give up on) a gazillion button-up shirts with unflattering fit, length or fabric. The other and the more worthwhile option is to pick customised office clothing. And once and for all, end your workwear woes. From prints and patterns to measurements, made-to-measure office wear is exactly what it sounds like - tailored to suit your sartorial preferences and body type. Make it all about you with 6 customised office wear brands -
1. Fable Street
An online store exclusively for women, this brand dedicates itself to the cause of an impeccable work wardrobe. Make a selection from a range of reasonably priced (Rs. 1,800 onwards) tops, bottoms, shirts and dresses - customise each according to your measurements and colour options. Also, for some selected pieces, you can pick between a no-sleeve and sleeved style.
The go-to formal wear brand, known for its workwear collection, also offers a made-to-measure service, on ground and online. You can customise various segments of the garment, from fabric to sleeve length. Makes life so much easier, doesn’t it? Happy working!
Another online store, Darzi specialises in button-down shirts. It’s super exciting to see a retailer paying attention to fabric composition, patterns and weight. You can select from a number of fabric blends, such as Egyptian cotton, wool, linen and polyester-cotton mixes. Dressing to impress just got real, girls.
Pleats, waistband types, pockets, length, fit are just a few of the customisable elements at Suit Up India that make up the perfect office skirt or pants. I’ve never had the option to pick between pleats or no pleats, like, ever in my online shopping experiences, have you? If not, this is definitely worth investing in. Get ready for a rather fashionable work week, won’t you?
Your work wardrobe is about to be blessed with a lot of customised goodness. How? Gaia Bespoke treats your wish as their command. Especially when it comes to work dresses… They have a number of diverse silhouettes and necklines to choose from, and it’s amazing. I mean, the options are never-ending: bodycon, fit and flare, skater, button-down dresses and more. Thank you, God, for customised office wear.
It doesn’t get better than this, girls. Remember that brilliant pantsuit you spotted on Sonam Kapoor’s Instagram, but would rather forget the colour? Happy days! You can get the exact same design sans the weird shade of pink. How? Faaya, of course. Send them a picture of your preferred work wear design and your measurements, and they will do the rest. Hallelujah!
