OOTD Roundup: Corporate Chic | Clozette

Dressing up for work can often be stressful — how much skin should you show? Or do you dress for the job you want, not the one you have? Basically, it’s an endless array of “do I do this or that”.


A number of work environments still have strict dress codes because ever since casual outfits were allowed, a fine line between casual and “slobby" happened. So for our top OOTDs this week, we curated looks that gorgeously blended professional-casual-day-to-night ensembles that will be perfectly appropriate for any business meeting all the way to a girls night out!

Not into shift dresses and pencil skirts? Then this outfit by Clozetter Vanessaxlim will be perfect for you! Her black and white checkered slacks, beige slip ons, and bold, red high-low top are a relaxing but chic look to wear to the office. If you suddenly have to go to an important lunch or dinner, simply trade in your slip ons for some heels and you’ll be good to go!

Culottes are having a big moment right now and are showing no signs of slowing down. Clozette Ambassador hannatantoco’s take on this trend proves that they are as versatile as the next pair of jeans! Show your co-workers who's boss by pairing your culottes with a high collared top, some pointed heels, and a pop of colour in the form of a bright blue satchel!

For work environments that don’t have extremely strict dress codes, take a page out of Clozette Ambassador iamaly’s OOTD for its spot-on “corporate meets high fashion” vibe! To achieve this look, just take a simple romper and partner it with an oversized blazer and some flats or heels. If you want to take it to the next level, though, just add a floppy hat or a fedora for that bohemian touch.

We can learn a thing or two from Clozette Ambassador ssydneyho’s OOTD — she expertly turned a typical pencil skirt and blouse combo into something fabulous and fun by opting for soft pastels and feminine prints and textures, and adding a touch of power to the look with a black, structured bag.


CelineChiam

For spring and summer months, this ensemble by Clozette Ambassador CelineChiam should be at the top of your “must wear” list! The pops of pink in her strapless top, boat shoes, and tote bag are wonderful additions to her structured shorts. Her pearl earrings and red lipstick pull her entire look together for a fun, flirty office look!

Got an inspiring woman in your life? Well, then she deserves a treat! This holiday season, grab the chance to shower her with gifts that reflect her strong-minded spirit and independent drive. This goes beyond just a gesture and admiration for her incredible spirit; but it's also an open declaration that you understand the kind of woman that she is--one that you aspire to be.

So here are five gifts that any strong-minded, independent woman will thank you for.

--------------------------


A Good Read: A Motivational Book



Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg


Women stick together, sharing life-lessons and wisdom with one another to create a circle of strong-minded women who support and encourage each other through life. So share that gift of wisdom through a motivational book, much like this one from Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook. In Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg explains what it takes to be an effective leader while sharing her personal stories to empower women to reach their true potential.

A White Power Suit



Wool Blazer & Flared Pants


When it comes to business, image is everything (aside from wit and a sharp mind). So a polished power suit will make all the difference when it comes to commanding attention in the boardroom. A sleek power suit, like this ensemble from Pallas, will make a fabulous gift for the woman who has the confidence to rock an all-white suit without staining it with coffee during the morning rush. It's sophisticated chic at its best.



A Classic Tote



Marc Jacobs The Grand Majestic Leather Tote


Smart and driven women are all about staying organised. So help them do it in style with a classic handbag that comes with compartments and zipped pockets for her documents, gadgets, and makeup kit. Pick a style that easily goes from day-to-night, like this leather tote from Marc Jacobs that's perfect for both a business meeting and after work cocktails.



A Skincare Treat



SK-II ‘Wings of Change’ Facial Treatment Essences


Nothing boosts confidence more than a healthy, luminous glow. So gift her with a skincare product that commits itself to empowering women with the promise of beautiful, crystal clear skin. Inspired by two winged creatures – the butterfly and the hummingbird – the “Wings of Change” SK-II Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence series is all about transformation and the capacity to take flight and soar to new heights. Truly a meaningful gift that she’ll appreciate. 


Choose from SK-II Iconic Set at SGD $259 / RM620; SK-II Flawless Beauty Set at SGD $558 / RM1,410; SK-II Beauty Blossom Set at SGD $348 / RM852; and SK-II Age Protect Set at SGD $478 / RM1,181.



A Stylish Workout Gear



Lululemon Drop It Like It’s Hot Leotard


A strong, healthy body equates to a strong and sharp mind. So keep her on top of her fitness game with functional exercise gear that’s a lot more stylish than the usual tank and track pants combo.

The difference between fashion and style is that style is what you become known for — your signature. And no one knows more about style than Minnie Mouse, a flapper girl who debuted in 1928 as Mickey Mouse’s girlfriend. Minnie has been in the fashion game since then and has started trends over the years, making a unique impact on the fashion industry. Now that is what we call legendary!


To celebrate her status as one of the world’s leading icons, here are 5 reasons why she is our style icon and why she should be yours too!

--------------------------


She keeps it classy in heels



Give the right girl the right type of shoes and she can conquer anything. True, Minnie may have come at a time in history when wearing heels every day was the norm, but she still wore them even when sneakers became popular and heels were just reserved for work and special occasions. She knows how to walk the walk and look gorgeous while doing it!

If you’re not a lover of heels, you can still rock it with Poh Heng’s Minnie Mouse Style Icon - Peep Toe Pumps necklace, which is just as fabulous!
Knows how to accessorise



Accessorising can be hard when you don’t know where to begin. But not Minnie! She has found her match with her signature bow and has worn it throughout the decades, only changing it up to match her outfits and shoes.

Sport a bow on your hair and neck with Poh Heng’s Minnie Mouse Style Icon - Essential Bow necklace for a coordinated look!


Consistent fashion choices



Being consistent with your style is a little difficult because fashion and trends change every year. But Minnie Mouse has mastered the art of being stylish by catering her style to the trends, not the other way around. That way, she still gets to wear what she loves, while being at the top of her fashion game. You’ll notice that whatever era she’s in, she always wears a dress, kitten heels, and a bow.

Wear the Poh Heng Minnie Sassy necklace and make it the topping of any of your outfits. Its rose and white gold details make it wearable for any time of the year, day, or occasion!


Starts and inspires trends



Polka dots? Round sunglasses? Mouse ears? Pillow box hats? These are just some of Minnie’s influences on the fashion industry. In fact, she has influenced fashion photographers too!

To rock one of the trends she inspired, the Poh Heng Minnie Style Icon - Sunnies necklace has got you covered as a go-to accessory for effortless style mixed with a bit of Minnie’s quirkiness!


Keeps it simple



Last, but definitely not the least, Minnie always keeps her clothing choices simple and effortless. Yes, she incorporates trends into her outfits, but it’s mostly just in the details – her signature style still remains. Her outfits’ simplicity is what keeps her timeless, relatable, and chic!

For a signature accessory, the Poh Heng Minnie Style Icon - M For Minnie necklace will always keep you looking polished and well put together at any time!
