There is nothing worse than putting up with the drudgery of deadlines in uncomfortable clothes.
You might be in for a rough week, but you might as well put up with it in some modicum of ease. There are a few “cheat pieces” that every working woman should own, which are pieces like jumpsuits and luxe tees. This dark navy jumpsuit and the bright textured slides work together so beautifully; it’s in this way that you should use colours to really create a stylish look while keeping things loose. Remember to have a cute scarf on hand should the office get a bit chilly.
For daily weekday wear
Another way to keep comfy in the office is to wear a tee shirt in an appropriate way. Find an oversized or extended tee shirt, preferably in a bright colour, and wear it matching dark high-heeled boots and a coat. Don’t forget to wear safety pants underneath!
When you get the opportunity to get casual, you can’t get much more comfy than a hoodie. But wait a minute; casual doesn’t mean lazy. You can create a well put together look without being dressed-up. Follow the example stylish off-duty celebs and wear your favourite hoodie over a cute printed maxi skirt.
For casual Fridays
Another way to style your hoodie is to wear them with slim trousers. Matching printed hoodies with light-coloured trousers and pumps are a great way to luxe up an otherwise casual piece. Metallic or textured sneakers or pumps will really elevate this look, keeping you feeling chill yet stylish.
On days when you know you have important meetings or presentations, it’s probably more appropriate to dress up a little more than usual. Days like these can be super long and stressful, therefore, staying relaxed is paramount. Like I said earlier, jumpsuits can be your “cheat piece”, and they can be used for your presentation days as well. Match a light coloured jumpsuit with an unembellished leather jacket and heels. Wearing heeled pumps may not be ideal for full body comfort, but it’s a compromise we’re willing to make.
Pareos look super luxe while channeling those holiday-cruise vibes, which will totally help you chill out on the dreariest of days (not to mention when you’re battling the unrelenting Singapore heat). Tuck in a crisp cotton dress shirt, pull on some luxe looking slides or boots and you’ll be looking good and feeling fine.
Making a good first impression while networking, or even when you encounter the same people for that matter, is always important, and half the battle is your appearance. You need to appear polished and approachable, and your style is your secret weapon. Opt for a soft satin jackets that is reminiscent of our favourite pyjama trend, and match it with your equally comfortable palazzo pants. Wear a light coloured crop top inside, button up your jacket and you’ll have a sleek and functional evening look.
