Plan your office wardrobe
1 Indian wear: Saris are the best choice, especially if you are in the hospitality sector. Go for simple ones matched with well-cut blouses for a classic chic look. Avoid loud colours and embroidery. Opt for stylish yet understated saris.
2 Western wear: Go for cool, pastel colours and smart linen suits paired with delicate georgette or chiffon blouses or camisoles. Linen textures and weaves can be experimented with.
3 For a formal look: Jackets paired with short skirts, pants or straight lined dresses look elegant. Cotton blended fabrics also look good. Vibrant printed cotton and linen sun dresses are apt for a casual work environment. Pair them with interesting accessories such as sling bags, sandals and scarves. You can also throw some fun into your wardrobe with bright printed tunics teamed with leggings, skinny pants or drain pipe trousers. Complete your look with a scarf.
4 Be unique: Try to create your own look instead of just blindly following trends. Be adventurous with your wardrobe and have fun being stylish and fashionable.
5 Handbag: Bags should be worn like jewellery — sophisticated and elegant. Avoid wearing too many accessories with a dramatic bag.
