All you ladies will agree that dressing up for office can be a complicated affair, right? Fret not, here's an insight as to how you can glam up your office look. After all, it shouldn't be plain and boring!


Dress up
Give a spin to the dresses you wear in office. Add colour to your wardrobe, don't go monochrome. Wear dresses in solid colours, play with different textures, cuts and prints.

Bag it on
The bag you carry speaks a lot about you and your style. Come out of the usual and conservative 'blacks & browns'. Add zing to your look and make a style statement by carrying brightly hued bags. A woman's wardrobe should have at least 3-4 bags of various colours and texture to mix and match your look.

Wear a belt
A slim and skinny belt accentuates and brings the focus on the waistline. The slim belt gives an interesting look.

Scarf sense
Just wrap a scarf around your neck. You can also try wearing a neckerchief. A scarf can be worn over a formal shirt or a dress. This piece of layering will give you an extra edge and will make you stand out from others. Scarves of different materials such as cotton, silk, nylon are available. You can try different lengths too.

Precious moments
A wrist watch is not merely for glancing at the time, it's an extended piece of jewellery too. Invest in own a gorgeous time-piece and get ready to be noticed.

Step up
We all love our footwear. Don't we? It is said that your footwear can make or break your look. Pick and wear soles which go well with your outfit. There are umpteen choices ranging from stilettos, kitten heels, pumps, ballerinas, wedges, boots and many more.

Get Framed
If you wear glasses, then a frame will be on your face everyday and you must love how it looks. So choose a nice frame. It can be a colourful, chunky or a even metallic frame. When we don't hesitate to buy more than one pair of shoes, bags, watches then why restrict with one frame? Eyeglasses can be made a fashion accessory.

Make Up
Don't apply too much make up or you'll end up looking like a pancake, with the dressing. Keep it minimal and neutral. Focus and highlight one feature only. For example: Either focus on eyes, by applying kajal/eye liner and a coat of mascara and a tinge of eye shadow or apply a bright shaded lipstick.

Mane magic
No matter what office you work in, you want to look stunning and professional at the same time. Ponytails are feminine, try a classic ponytail with a flip/puff at the crown. You can also experiment with various styles of braids, French knots and so on. This season, side ponytails are a rage, so girls experiment with your hair.

Accessorise
Accessories are an add-on and can really accentuate your dressing style. Try including brooches, neck-pieces, chain link necklaces, a chunky ring, a nice bracelet. But a word of caution, don't go overboard. Wear only one or two accessories at a time.
