Take a style cue from these celebs on how to nail your boardroom outfits.
First thing’s first – just because you have to abide to a formal dress code for work, it doesn’t have to be boring! Update your officewear with spruce-me-up details for a refreshing result. We’ve narrowed down a few style inspo from some of our fave celebs, and how you can rock them too.
#1 Olivia Palermo – Lady on the go
When we imagine work outfits, boring black and white usually comes to mind. But for 2017, make a new year’s resolution by being bold with your outfit (and your career). Like Olivia, the key is to stick to neutral or earthy tones, and let your bright and punchy accessories do the talking.
Tip: When going for a more relaxed outfit, stick to materials like silk or cotton for that formal touch.
#2 Amal Clooney – Serious affair
Take it from Amal on how to style a dress like a #girlboss – the main feature here is definitely the statement bow! This is a great example of personalizing your work outfit with a simple yet standout detail.
Tip: Layer your white buttoned-down shirt under a dress, and leave your collar and sleeves out for extra details.
#3 Kate Upton – Go with the flow
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the traditional office staples, but amp it up by opting for different styles! Kate’s high-waisted flared pants hits all the right notes on the office style code, and is the perfect day-to-night look.
Tip: Opt for a structured tote with colours or cool textures to give you slouchy look a polished finish.
#4 Lily Aldridge – Ace it with ease
For casual Fridays, try rocking an oh-so chic shirtdress to the workplace. The best part? You’ll look equally stylish while staying comfortable.
Tip: Style the plain outfit with a statement handbag and a pair of mules like Lily for that added flair.
