Here's your cheat sheet to acing office fashion!

Looking both presentable and stylish at the office doesn't have to be a burdensome task. But if you simply don't have enough time to experiment or overthink your outfit of the day, don't worry because we're here to help you out! We've formulated five easy yet chic office uniforms you can wear all week long.

1. Blazer + Slip skirt/dress

This combo is a tried-and-tested pairing that balances business and pleasure. The boxy silhouette of the blazer offers some structure while the slip skirt softens the overall vibe. So even if your style leans towards feminine or clean cuts, you can get the best of both aesthetics. 

Pro tip: Play with textures to mix things up. Try pairing tweed blazers with satin slip skirts to boost the luxe feel of your OOTD.

2. New neutrals

You don't have to look plain in your coordinates or suits. The trick is to choose pieces in trendy colors so you can brighten up your outfits. Consider them your new neutrals in lieu of blacks, beiges, and whites.

Pro Tip: If you're wary of standing out too much, take baby steps and try deep, rich hues like burgundy, gray, moss green, and burnt orange.

3. Wrap dress + Kitten heels

Nothing beats the classic wrap dress for an office OOTD. But this time, skip the heels and slides and opt for something in between, like kitten heels. Apart from slimming down your calves, they won't make your feet hurt even after wearing 'em all day. Who says you have to sacrifice comfort for style, right?

Pro Tip: If you plan to wear a plain wrap dress, let your shoes do the talking. Reach for kitten heels with texture or print to make your OOTD look simple but elegant.

4. Frilly blouse + Pleated skirt

Go granny chic with this style combo. A flouncy blouse will look extra sophisticated when styled with a pleated skirt. But if you're not one to pile on the prints or it's not in your personality to wear too many sweet hues, consider playing with your classic pieces instead. The trick is to throw a statement piece in the equation to level up your look.

Pro Tip: Along with a statement piece, take the look up a notch by adding something metallic to your look. This way, you can easily take it from desk to dinner!

5. T-shirt + Printed pants

If you can afford to wear a more relaxed attire at work, then here's your chance to dress a little bolder. Swap your usual denims or plain smart trousers with a printed pair. 

Pro Tip: Keep everything else in a neutral hue so the spotlight will be on your printed bottoms.
