I love dressing up for work because when I look good, I feel empowered to tackle the tasks I have throughout the day. When I show up at the office in a crumbly outfit, I feel unmotivated, therefore less productive.

But looking impeccable everyday for work can be quite a challenge! We all suffer from time and budget constraints, leaving us terribly uninspired.

Fret not ladies, I have scoured the Instagrams of our favourite Singapore fashionistas and rounded up 5 looks that are perfect for the office; taking you from Monday through Friday. I have also included a list of places you can visit to score similar pieces!

These stylish and super easy to wear outfits will definitely be your go-tos when you run out of outfit ideas in the morning.

1. Suit-up on Monday
Start the week off with a polished and elegant suit! I know it’s hard but try to stay away from black (just for Mondays I promise!) and adopt lighter colours like white and pastel blue that will make you look fresh and invigorated. The soft tailoring is still smart but will ease you into the work week more comfortably, we promise!

2. Power Tuesday
I know we can’t live without our blacks, so go back to basics and go full on black for Tuesday! Switch things up a little with a tuxedo dress instead of a regular black suit. Strappy heels will up the style factor too.
