Everyone wants it easy—that’s the truth. You won’t see an easy (no bad consequence) way of going about something and choose a bumpier route instead. So no matter how laidback or formal your workplace is, if you can afford to, you’d choose your loose blouses or flat sandals over clingy tops and tight stilettos every single time.
However, hardly anyone wants to look like a drab whose opinion cannot be trusted because of their appearance. You want to be stylish in a professional way and be comfortable at the same time. How do you achieve this when deciding on what to wear to work every single day is a struggle? One trick that works well for many professional women is to stock their wardrobe with some comfortable fashion essentials that can be matched and mixed with abandon.
Upgrade your work wardrobe with the following essentials to effortlessly achieve comfortable and stylish work outfits from Monday to Friday:
T-shirt Shaped Tops
Cotton T-shirts tend to wrinkle up a lot and they look too casual paired with jean trousers or left to fly out on your skirts. While you may not be going against any dress code in your media house workplace with such dressing, it is usually a no-no for corporate settings like banks. But even a banker do need his/her comfort and one of the best ways to get that is to reach for alternatives like chiffon or silk tops with a T-shirt silhouette. Have like four of those tops in your wardrobe and you will always be ready for the week.
Comfy Black Pants
Jean trousers or leggings are not the only comfy wears. Well-tailored pants work just fine too when it comes to comfort. And black is a basic color that ever hardly looks odd when paired with other colors. So get yourself a couple of black pants and start pairing with your T-shirt shaped tops. You can add a jacket to the ensemble for a more chic and professional look.
Jackets And Blazers
Jackets and blazers have been saving not only time but also style reputation for professional ladies since time immemorial. Confused about wearing your sleeveless blouse or gown to work, add a blazer or jacket to it and that solves the problem. No time to go home and change for a date night? Take off the jacket and you’re back to a relaxed and casual look.
There should be a jacket commercial that goes “style and comfort like no other,” if there isn’t one already.
If you ever feel like wearing your soft and free T-shirt to work, you could always make it look less casual by tucking it in a formal piece like a midi skirt to balance it out. One extra work midi skirts will never demand from you is to have you constantly pulling it down. And they go well with nearly every top in your closet: crop or long. If it’s crop top for you that day, you can wear it loose on your midi skirt. But if the shirt or blouse is on the longer side, it’s best to tuck it in. You can never have enough of midi skirts; buy it in different colors and patterns.
Flat And High-heeled Shoe
In order for your mixing and matching to be easier, you need to have at least four pairs of shoes. Two flats: one could be neutral or colored and the other one has to be black. And two high-heeled shoes: one black and one neutral/colored court shoes.
