Go Office Chic With These Picks

Professional but not boring

Costume designer Edith Head once said, "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." And in an office setting, what she said can't be any closer to the truth. In a perfect world, how we dress will not affect how we (and to a certain extent, our work,) will be perceived. But the reality is if you want career advancement, demand it with your skill, talent and how you carry yourself.


With that said, here's some F/W 2017 chic office outfit ideas to help you dress for success.


Power Suiting

Plaids are here again, and this time they're making their way back into office wear. Add a few pieces to inject some personality into an otherwise boring ensemble. Statement earrings and stiletto heels are good starters. 


Dark Florals

Florals were all over our wardrobes last summer and they're not going away anytime soon. For this season, it's all about going over to the dark side. Explore deep hues of floral patterns for a fresh perspective.


Colour Confidence
