A mundane day at work can always be brightened up by a sartorial spin and dressing up for work! That is the driving force behind the “What To Wear to Work” dilemma often faced by fashion oriented career women. We’d like to call it the 8AM dilemma faced by working women all over the world. Work wardrobe usually revolves around a few selected staples infused with a few eclectic pieces that add a touch of your personality to your look. The personalizing elements predominately accessories have an integral role to play as they add character to the look taking it away from looking uniform-ish. Jewelry is one such element. Jewelry has the power to add value to your work wear look without taking much away from it and that’s one of the major reason working women swear by it.
If you experience the same kind of daily dressing woes, there’s a good chance you are one of those who welcome inspiration tools to get new ideas on work dressing and making the most of your wardrobe. The best way is to look at each piece as investment – not monetary but pieces that will become your go-to effortless dressing up kind of pieces. These pieces should be worthy of a lot of mix-n-match and high styling capabilities – we’re talking clothes and jewelry.

With a smile on her face and a strong sense of personal style, Preeti has nailed office dressing and owns an immaculate work wear wardrobe. Her approach to work dressing is classic with off- beat additions. We take you through three strong curated looks that can be defined as stylish yet work perfect. There’s only one constant with her looks – and every working soul’s pride – a watch!
LOOK 1 – SOLID SEPARATES
A crisp cotton shirt style with a box pleated midi dress is feminine chic with an old-school charm is high on comfort and style. Most of the offices have freezing temperatures and hence it’ll always be helpful for you to include full sleeved options in your work wardrobe. The pastel shirt – midi skirt look is accessorised with monochrome accents with clean aesthetics. They are not your usual delicate stories but off beat jewels with a character of their own. Look for pieces that can be styled with most of your outfits.
LOOK 2 – SHIFT DRESS
A basic shift dress with simplicity as the key element is a must-have. The dress can be layered up with prim jackets or interesting jewelry. The minimal character of the dress can be justified with off beat but simple accessories – like a brooch and a statement ring to match. A solid colour dress is the perfect canvas for jewelry to shine and there is nothing we don’t love about this look.
LOOK 3 – CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT
No work wardrobe is complete without the classic white shirt. It’s like an unsaid rule now. Nothing can really match the charm of a white shirt owing to the number ways it can be styled. For this look, Preeti styles it with a pair of black pants – a favourite work wear combination topping the look with layered silver jewelry.
Preeti’s looks defy the nude make up theory. We believe that bright bold lips brighten up your face making a confident statement and that is just the kind of touch you need to feel the power at work.
