Ask any woman from the coroporate world and she will agree that finding the perfect outfit for work can be stressful. How do you look fashionable and respectable without looking too frumpy or matronly? And in this region we need to be mindful of the culture and ensure outfits are conservative and not overly sexy.
Express, Marks & Spencers, and New York & Company are some of my favorite brands for filling my workwear closet. We even covered this twist on the button-down shirt on the blog sometime back. Thankfully, as women in the corporate world become more prevalent, more brands are devoting time for special workwear collections.
Bebe, until now well-known for its feminine, sexy clothing, is launching a special workwear collection. While some of the pieces might be a little too risqué for this cultural environment, I think there are pointers that can be incorporated into our outfits.
- Match the hues of your blacks to give a sharp, sleek look.
- Add some style to your outfits with chunky, metal accessories.
- Add a blazer or tights to a structured dress to tone it down.
- Mix and match leather with tweed and prints with neutrals.
