Gone are the days of knee-length skirts and trousers for workwear. The new-age working woman is not afraid to experiment and let her hair down when it comes to style at the workplace.
Business suits are passé. This is the age of bohemian, laid back prints and silhouettes- comfort and efficiency fused with femininity.
Shirts are one of the most versatile wardrobe ingredients which can be donned at any time in the world. And now you have cold shoulders, chiffons and colorful prints- think geometrical prints, collarless tunics, tie waists, and collars with embellishments. The old monochrome cotton shirts with the usual pattern are now a thing of the past.
From A line skirts to pleated maxi skirts, the progression of skirts has been impressive to accommodate more styles and materials. Slim fit skirts are accepted formal wear. Skirts are more about comfort and the ability to express yourself while being able to experiment with styles using belts, fringes and more.
Other ensembles include maxi dresses which are now a common work wardrobe essential due to ease of movement. You can choose from a wide range of styles.
Lightweight coats like trench coats, blazers and kimono-style jackets are a rage now. Bright knitwear is the next big trend, especially for spring, as it makes you stand out.
Wide pants and bell-bottomed trousers are now back in fashion as they give an impression of height and slimness. They are much more comfortable for the workplace as opposed to the typical slim-fit pants.
Any outfit is incomplete without accessories. From brooches to ribbons to tote bags in bright colors-there is an advent of bold designs and bright colors. For any corporate look, the essential element is how you carry it. Feel smart, and the rest will take care of itself.
