We already know that a blazer adds a polished finish to just about anything but it’s
good to change things up sometimes. Take a break from playing it safe and add a fashionable edge to your work outfit by throwing on a trendy jacket rather than your regular blazer. Chic boxy jackets in neutral colours can amp up just about any ensemble.

A simple t-shirt will always come to your rescue on a rushed morning. No, we’re not joking. You can wear a t-shirt to work if you style it appropriately. A crisp white tee can be tucked into trousers, knee-length skirts and can be worn under blazers too. Accessorize with minimal jewellery, a polished bag and classic heels or flats.
A standout bag that is fashionable and functional can seriously elevate your whole look. A work-ready purse can dress up your basics for the office and it doesn’t necessarily have to be black. A bag in any pretty colour, as long as it’s classy and not flashy, can do the trick just fine.

When it comes to dressing for the office, Indian wear is something that will always help you look stylish and chic. A white kurti with pants or leggings, a simple suit or even a pretty tunic are all you need for nailing work style. Plus, these will help you stay comfy when you have a long day ahead. You can also add a touch of Indian to a western outfit with the help of simple jhumkis, bangles or an ethnic scarf.

They will seriously ensure for a style that is anything but boring!

The easiest way to dress for any kind of job is by sticking with the classics. Black pants, a pencil skirt, a white shirt, etc – you can’t go wrong with them. But, a look this safe can border on boring, right? The trick is to always wear one statement piece to inject some fun into your look, be it with a bag, shoes, statement jewellery, a watch or your lipstick. Pay attention to the details ladies!
A vest jacket, a sleeveless blazer – whatever you want to call them, they can add some corporate chic to just about anything you wear. When you’re wearing a simple skirt and blouse or even jeans and top, throw on a sleeveless blazer to instantly make an outfit office-ready and to give it a polished spin.
