Style your work-wears with Fabriclore!!
Our workplace holds utmost importance in our life because it is a place where we spend most of our waking hours. When we are so keen to flaunt our style at any place we go and even at home, then why compromise with the work-wear look?
We agree there are so many offices which have a strict formal attire code but you can still make a style statement with the formal wears also. And with so many fashion designers experimenting with formal looks today, why not ditch the same trousers and pants and add variety to your work-wear wardrobe also just like your other clothing.
The interesting part is you can even create these swanky looks with even handcrafted fabrics. With this blog, we give you some hand-picked ideas to not only flaunt your style at your work-place but to even add comfort in your work wear clothing.
Flair up your work trousers
Perfect for all seasons, flared trousers are definitely back in trend this season. If you want to flaunt your waist curves, then flared trousers is definitely your pick. For summers, you can simply pair any contrasting top with these trousers and the look is complete.
If you are heading for a formal meeting, simply tuck in your shirts with the high waisted flared trousers and cover it up with a blazer. Carry a statement bag with this look to make an ever-lasting impression.
A comfortable formal look
As it is said, comfort comes first. For those of you who still feel forma trousers can never give you the same comfort as your denim, then we have the perfect workwear look for you.
Simply pair your dark coloured denim – maybe dark blue or black with a classic top and a contrasting blazer. And this would give you the same formal look as a business suit would.
You also have a chance of experimenting with different printed fabrics for the blazer & also foot-wears. Stilettos, shoes, and even your favorite pencil heels would go perfectly with this look.
The Traditional Printed Blazers with Contemporary touch
Something that might interest you are the kind of blazers. Gone are the days of wearing just black blazers. Because of the huge variety of fabrics available today and specially the handloom, you can create infinite different styles of work-wear blazers.
Ever heard of the Power suit? Well, it is what we call pantsuits these days. It will give your confidence a boost along with the questions of where you got it from.
While a lot of branded pantsuits might put a whole in your pocket, a tailormade one will not + the choices & creativity you can have is jaw dropping. Go for plain or printed, either way, you'll don the boss lady look.
The Authentic Kurtas
A kurta with palazzos/pants/churidaars is a perfect contemporary and formal look for you. There are times when you are in a mood to wear ethnic to your work-place but find it difficult to handle dupatta for 9 to 5 working hours. So ditch it while staying elegant & classy.
With so many different prints and fabric available today, add variety to your wardrobe with Long flowy kurtas, straight long kurtas, long shirt style kurta, short kurta etc. Go for prints that would suit your personality. Indigo prints are always in vogue & can paired up with your denim too. If you're the boho-kind, we suggest you go for Ajrak (Also, it is naturally dyed)
Not So Ethnic
If a complete ethnic look does not appeal to you, try out these not-so-ethnic looks as your workwear. It's a fusion, so wear a crafted long shrug over your basic black outfit (or white).
And if you want to add just a pinch of ethnic to your work-wear, try this look. Pair any indigo printed jacket with your formal pants and a plain shirt. Doesn’t this sound interesting?
Black and white is one look that can never go wrong for any occasion. No matter it’s a party you are heading to or a work meeting. The Black trousers - white shirt look is so versatile that it still looks as graceful as it did 50 years back.
The key is how to make it contemporary. Play with different fabrics for designing your white shirt – be it Crepe, Cotton, Linen, Georgette, Satin etc. and add a punch with styling of collar and buttons.
Modish Quilted Jackets
Quilted jackets are something we have been wearing since ages. And this season, fashion designers have been playing around with different prints in quilted jackets.
The trend of monochrome Ikat print on jackets is definitely worth checking out. And what makes it versatile is that you can even wear it to your workplace and to a casual evening affair. What matters is how you style it.
Quilted jackets also do wonders with formal pencil skirts. Just be careful with the color. Black, Grey and Olive would be the perfect choice to pair with the quilted jacket to flaunt as workwear.
Accessorize your office wear
No matter how simple the outfit is, accessories can add a sense of embellishment to any look. But you need to be very careful in choosing the right accessories for your work-wear. Of course, sometimes we do want to be decked up even for our work-place but ladies be careful. As much as they can do wonders for your work-wear look, they can also make you look a bit extra dressed-up.
Subtle accessories should be your pick for a workwear look. Simple bracelet and fainted necklaces would look great.
Don't forget the classic watches! A perfect replacement to any other accessories. So, if you believe in minimal look, watches are something you can carry. They not only make you look swanky but you can also create your own style statement.
We hope these quick and contemporary work wear looks will help you add variety to your wardrobe. You can also let us know if you have any more work clothing ideas in the comments below.
