Personal Stylist: Designer + Rtw Louis Claparols, Patrice Ramos-Diaz and Randy Ortiz take work wear up a notch.

There’s a fine line between office-appropriate and boring. Fortunately, work wear has evolved with the times, evolving from strictly business and stiff—and boring—uniforms to completely cosmopolitan. On another note, we’re not entirely turning our back on the democratic style of a well-tailored suit; but a little flair here and there wouldn’t hurt.

Striking a balance between “proper office attire” and “interesting” is now more accessible with ready-to-wear labels collaborating with distinguished local designers. Even better, these collections have more digestible price points.

Louis Claparols, Patrice Ramos-Diaz and Randy Ortiz have designed collections for Ensembles, ViseVersa and Kashieca Luxe respectively, with pieces fitting for the work place yet maintaining their feminine poise through interesting details, modern cuts and colors.

We put together some outfits from the brands’ runway looks to help you pep up your work wardrobe.
