Add a pop of colour

One of the easiest ways to add some personality to your work wardrobe is to add a pop of colour. There are many different ways you can do this. You can start off with a bold coloured handbag, for example. When you are feeling more confident, opt for a statement skirt or a pair of bold coloured trousers.

Glam up your look with your lipstick selection

It is not all about the clothing you wear. You can transform a ‘boring’ suit with a vibrant shade of lipstick, such as a coral or a pillar-box red. Needless to say, you will need to master the art of applying your lipstick immaculately if you want to pull off this look. Nothing looks good about colour smudged across the corner of your lips.

Wear a pair of statement trousers

In addition to the suggestions that we have mentioned so far, another way to add some personality to your work wardrobe is to wear a pair of statement trousers. We often have a tendency to fall into the habit of only wearing black trousers in the workplace. However, this is your opportunity to add some colour to your outfit. You can go for a bold pair of red or blue trousers, for example. This is a great way to create a bold look while ensuring that you still maintain professionalism in your appearance. It’s a win-win!

Shop based on brand

There are some brands that are known for their vibrancy yet always maintain an air of professionalism, You will never find anything too low cut or inappropriate for the workplace. Shopping based on brand is a good option for those who are unsure regarding what they should and should not wear to work. There is nothing wrong with injecting some vibrancy or prints into your workwear wardrobe; you simply need to make sure you do so in a classy and sophisticated manner, and this is where brand selection comes into play. A piece of clothing from the Fendi brand, for example, is guaranteed to make sure that you look and feel amazing in the workplace.

Finish off your look with a statement handbag

We all know the importance of adding a beautiful bag to our outfits. After all, a bag contains all of your important belongings. They often say that women have everything but the kitchen sink in their handbag. There are so many different styles of handbags on the market today, so you are bound to find something that fits in with your personality and gives you ample space to store all of your belongings.

Incorporate new trends into your work look

One of the best ways to keep your office attire interesting is to incorporate a few of the latest fashion trends into it. Of course, not all fashion trends are going to be suitable for the workplace. Sheer clothing and cropped tops should certainly be left for out of the office. However, there are bound to be some trends that you can include in your work wardrobe to give it a striking and stylish upgrade. Current fashion trends for spring/summer 2021 that can be used in a work wardrobe include Crayola shades, pastel colours, check print, feathers (subtly – nothing OTT!), the XL tote and floral dresses.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways you can use your work wardrobe to let your personality shine through. If you follow the advice that has been presented, you can make sure that you look professional while also giving people a glimpse of your true character too. It is important to remember that just because you need to be professional in the workplace does not mean that you need to dress in a boring manner. There are a lot of different ways that you can spice up your look and show off your true sense of style in the workplace, and using the tips above is a good place to start.

 

 

Iconic Look: Brandy Norwood

Hello Fashion and Style lovers! Here is another celebrity fashion post for your reading pleasure. The beautiful and talented Brandy Norwood is the latest celebrity to be featured in the Iconic Look miniseries. Last month, the lovely Alicia Keys was the Iconic Look of the month and it was a very popular post. This time, Brandy Norwood’s iconic look is the talk of the month. I feel this beauty has aged a bit, she looks exactly the same way she looked many years ago. I cannot get over how amazing Brandy Norwood looks in 2021. It looks like she is ageing backwards. Do you agree?

Over 20 years apart and it is clear Brandy Norwood hasn’t aged a bit. She looks even more beautiful. I love seeing her rocking her braids. They look so amazing on her. I wore braids a lot growing up and Norwood is one of the reasons why I did. She made me want to have my hair in braids every time. Brandy’s braids were her signature look. We couldn’t think of Brandy without the braids, or braids without Brandy. They go hand in hand, and I still prefer to see her rocking her braids.

Looks aside, I am also a huge fan of Norwood’s music. Her hit song – The Boy is Mine featuring Monica, is always on my Alexa playlist. I also love her song Afrodisiac. It would be nice to hear something fresh from her. I feel like I haven’t seen much of her around in the last few years.

What do you think of Brandy Norwood as the Iconic Look of the month? Are you a fan of her look and her music? Please sound off in the comments section below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day.

Boring Or Bad Tattoos 

Tattoos have become incredibly popular as of late and more people than ever are choosing to permanently style their bodies with awesome artwork. One thing to be aware of is that you can make a bad decision with your choice of tattoo. For instance, a lot of men are being criticized for opting for tribal tattoos which don’t mean anything to them and are not part of their culture but they think look cool. Other people just get bad tattoos because they choose the wrong artist. You need to make sure that the tattoo artist you choose has the right tattoo supplies to provide fantastic final results for you. 

Clothes That Don’t Match Your Body Shape 

Next, you need to think about your clothing choices. It’s important to choose clothes that match your individual body shape. If you don’t do this, then you can end up in a situation where your style looks cheap and hides the best part of your body. For instance, a fitted suit is always going to look better compared to one that hangs off the shoulders. You might also want to consider opting for clothing that accentuates features that you are proud of. For instance, if you feel more confident with your lower half, then it makes sense to choose items of clothing that make an impression here. An example would be a killer faux leather skirt or wet look skirt that catches the light. 

Large Squares 

It’s important to note that patterns can have an impact on the perception that people have of your body. The patterns and styles that you choose can make you look larger or smaller. If you are self-conscious about your weight, then you need to make sure that you avoid large squares. These are always going to make you look frumpy and larger in general. Instead, you should think about smaller patterns on your clothing. 

The Wrong Jeans 

Finally, you need to make sure that you are not picking the wrong pair of jeans for you. Jeans are always going to be a popular item of clothing. They can accentuate your curves and show off your figure in all the right ways. However, you do need to think about key details such as the right cut. You should also consider going for a size that is one smaller than is comfortable when choosing jeans in-store. If you don’t do this, then the jeans are going to stretch and this will completely ruin your look. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the key mistakes that you can make with your fashion choices and that you should try and avoid them as much as possible. If you take the right steps here, you can guarantee that you always look incredible.
