“Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will.” – Anna Klein
Greetings Ladies! Every time you open your closet to grab a pair of jeans and pants to gear up for the office and the ethics give you a sigh. Are you bored of the same pant-suit and jeans-top combo and want a sizzling yet classy and elegant look to rock at your workplace?
Here are some ideas that you can go for with the staples that you already have in your wardrobe:
1. When in Doubt, Wear JEANS:
Jeans go with everything, literally everything. Don’t trust me? Just have a look!!!
Pair them with a collared long/short kurti: This chic and casual look will let you look intense yet stylish at the same time. Can also add light accessories (like Light Oxidized jewelry/bracelet) and complete the look with juttis, Kolhapuris, sneakers, pumps, loafers, or even oxford shoes to give it a modern look!
You can also wear a Collared high-low shirt dress and can pair it up with a plain thin waist belt if you want to show off your slim figure…
Pair up with a front or side high-slit kurti with simple yet bold block prints to give you that edgy look. The trick is to keep it sober by choosing small jhumkis or studs and not going over the top. Again you can pair it up with any kind of footwear.
Wrap a Scarf!
Use a square scarf or an ethnic stole with a solid long kurti, an ankle length jeans, and let your scarf tell a story.! 😉
Layer it Up with Short Angarkha Kurtis:
Short Angarkha kurtis look great on tall ladies with long legs. Pair the ensemble with pumps, stilettos, or flats for a flattering appeal.
Grab a jacket and go bossy!!
Opt for a short embroidered jacket or a flowy long ethnic jacket and make heads turn. Denim jackets to work wonders in adding a style quotient. But keeping the office ambiance in mind, do choose subtle embroidery and decent denim. Complete your look with minimalistic jewelry, pumps/Block heels/Juttis and you are good to go!
2. Pace in Palazzo:
Team up with kurtis: Palazzo and kurti are besties! Choose a solid or patterned kurti with wide-legged palazzos.
Can add a scarf matching the base color of the palazzos while keeping in contrast with the kurti to let each element stand out and you look as stunning as ever!
Why leave the staple white shirt behind?! Tuck it in with the flared palazzo, a sling bag with a nice pair of shoes, and walk down the glamorous road in style!
The go-to attire for work is -Jacket/Denim vest. Pull it off with a tank top/kurti and a jacket over and hit the road.
Go Sheer with Chickenkari Kurtis:
Time for your chikankari kurti to shine at your workplace. Add a nice scarf or a plain collared kurti with the ankle-length palazzo and go desi all the way.
3. Flare it Up with Skirts:
Ethnic skirts are so in these days. But ditching them for office wear might not be a smart thing to do! Choose the subtle prints or classy block prints and pair them with solid full-sleeve shirts or long-side slit kurtis. Can also play with different jackets/vests, peep-toes, or flat sandals based on your mood! 😉 while avoiding too many embellishments to glam you up!
4. Dress up with Kurti-Dresses:
Ditch the bottoms and let you flared, trail-cut, or floor-sweeping Anarkali kurtis make a statement!! Just belt it out to give you a more defined and fresh look while keeping you comfy enough to twirl at your desk with grace and charm.
5. Up your Saree Game:
Gone are the days when sarees used to stack up and wait till you jack them up at marriage events and party functions. Draping this 6-yard cloth with sheer elegance can be a little tricky but putting up your ‘boss-lady’ image up front should not… Right?
Opt for pastels, neutrals, and earthy tones to avoid looking over the top. Choose handloom cotton/linens or digital/abstract print Georgettes with solid boat, collared, and long-sleeved blouses for a hassle-free look.
Throw on a blazer or a well-fitted cardigan for a more formal look. Don your simple yet classy watch with a hair updo and flaunt that feminine charm of yours!
Now more than ever fashion trends are going crazy and experimenting, offering a variety of apparel to choose from. So let go of the boredom and passing nods, free yourself from the shackles of stereotypes, give wings to your imagination, glide with poise and let the attentive glances realize that you are a force to be reckoned with!!
