The growing transparency in the corporate sector is also leading to a shift from strictly formal to a semi-formal dress code. This is only a good news for us fashion lovers. You can experiment with your casuals and need not have a separate wardrobe for your formals. Read on to know some tips and tricks on styling this new genre of fashion!
We are not talking about the usual formal trousers instead we are talking about anything but usual. There are so many trending varieties of trousers that can be worn outside as well as during work. Cropped, flared, or even denims can be paired with formal tops for balance.
For this one too, you need to borrow the concept of balancing your look. Elements like ruffle, texture, tie-ups or even interesting buttons can take a simple formal top to a semi-formal level. Wear your usual trousers and a top with such interesting details and you are good to go!
Dresses are always a risky choice for a work place. However, if you stick to the right silhouettes, you have nothing to worry about. Knee-length or below dresses are best for the generic workplaces. Stick to shift, A-line and empire waist line dresses. Try to pick dresses with a preppy detailing like a peter pan collar or any collar for that matter and you will have no trouble in styling it for work.
Accessories can make a huge difference. For example, if you want to wear your basic t-shirt with your regular body con skirt. You can easily add a formal touch with a watch, a formal bag and some basic studs. You can even add a slim belt if you do not want to add any jewellery.
Oversized anything will help you give your strictly formal look a casual touch. An oversized blazer instead of a fitted one, an oversized white shirt instead of your regular shirt, an oversized tee or even an oversized pair of trousers – all can make a huge difference.
