I realized I’ve been posting too much casual outfits these days. Let’s try something else this time. Here’s something to wear on a not so casual day. It’s something more relaxed than the usual blazer – long sleeves – tight skirt office wear. For companies with strict business attire polices though, this may be apt for dress down Fridays. 😀
For something more “formal” compared to cotton, wear a chiffon top. It’s equally light, breezy and comfortable to wear.
Since not all offices allow sleeveless tops, why not cover up with a relaxing kimono cardigan? 😀 They’re also fasyon like structured blazers.
I found this glittered kimono cardigan on sale at H&M when I was in Barcelona. It looked a bit weird on the rack, probably why there were a lot of stocks. Winter was also about to come so no one dares to buy such kind of clothes. Everything on sale was for me. Bwahahaha! 😀 Back at the hotel, I tried it on right away and it looked awesome! 😀
Then, pair your relaxing top with tapered trousers. It can make you look taller too. 😉
This pair of shoes scream OFFICE, don’t you think? 😉 Haha! I just found this in my closet and realized I’ve never worn it yet. It’s actually a vintage shoes from my aunt. I had this for more than 10 years. Prior to that, my aunt used it for years as well. Surprisingly, it’s still alive and kickin’- not one chip of leather! Quality shoes are really worth paying for. You can hand them down for generations. 😀
If you feel that office wear is boring (just like what I used to think), accessorize! Trust me, it brings life to an outfit.
Some pieces may look casual if you look at them individually. With the right combinations, you can transform that casual clothing to something smart. Over-all, it’s definitely not a casual day for me. 😀
