Style tips for when you are on the job

When it comes to an office environment, it is very important to get your outfit right. I remember how I dressed back in the day when I had an office based job. It is important to look smart and professional on all days, even on dress down days. You need to get the balance right – looking smart and comfortable while doing your job.

Here are some style tips you may find useful when you are on the job –

 

Add a touch of your company

At my last office based job, we had printed work shirts and silicone wristbands we wore to work regularly. They helped raise brand awareness and they looked really stylish. Clothing and accessories with your company information is a great way to support the business and it also creates a form of togetherness.

You can implement a touch of your company into your work attire. The easiest way to do this successfully is to add accessories with the company information in your outfit. For example, Lancaster Printing’s silicone wristbands are customisable and are a great way to get this right.

 

Dress to impress

When it comes an office setting, it is very important for you to dress to impress. Dress down days are no exceptions. My last office job was in a call centre in Manchester, and we had a very relaxed way of dressing. I always ensured I looked smart every day. I didn’t go into work in heels everyday but I made sure my clothes and accessories were clean, smart and well put together. It amazes how I see many people dressing to work. Some come in wearing very tight miniskirts and cropped tops, which I think is just trashy. I have also seen many workers wearing ripped jeans or sky-high heels and being unable to walk in them.

Dressing to impress is a very important style tip for every office setting. We should all ensure we dress the way we want to be addressed.

Let your personality shine through

When it comes to fashion and style, I always advise anyone to stick to trends they like but you also need to remember you are in an office setting. So the trends you do like must be appropriate for the office. The fact that you are digging the ripped denim trend does that mean it is acceptable to wear them to the office.

When you wear pieces you are drawn to and style them in your own way, your personality would shine right through and it makes you stand out even more.

 

Invest in your pieces

You should spend a little bit more to ensure your office pieces stand the test of time. A classic skirt or trouser suit is worth investing a bit of money in. You would be spending more money on a great quality suit than you would spend on a great pair of jeans, so get your wallet ready. The better the fabric and lining of your piece, the more expensive it would be.

Styling A Casual Daywear Look

Casual does not mean scruffy. You are not meant to skimp on the quality of your casual daywear pieces as they serve a great purpose in your wardrobe. These days, I am usually in a causal daywear outfit. I haven’t gone partying in years (forgot what that’s about), so casual daywear pieces are all I am about most days of the week. It works for my lifestyle and I believe they are as stylish as other looks.

Here are a few style tips you should bear in mind when styling a casual daywear outfit.

 

Go for quality pieces

Like I said at the start of the post, casual does not mean scruffy. So ensure you go for quality pieces when shopping for or styling a casual daywear look. Cheap pieces do not stand the test of time, and they usually look cheap. It is best to spend a little bit more on clothes that would last more than 1 season.

 

Ensure you get a perfect fit

Casual does not mean you should go for oversize pieces. It is best to nail this look with the right size of garments. If you do like the oversized look, like oversize cardigans/jumpers, ensure you style them with belts and or skinny jeans/leggings to balance up the look.

 

Layers work

I love layering my pieces, especially with the British weather that is up and down. Layering is key when it comes to rocking a casual daywear look. Casual daywear is all about effortless style and layering nails this to a tee. A t-shirt or camisole under a blazer paired with a pair of jeans and scarf would look so stylish. A shirt underneath a waistcoat and jeans would work great too!

Ensure you have the right coat on this winter

A coat has the power to make you stand out for the right or wrong reasons. So it makes sense to pay special attention when picking one. Don’t mess up your look with a shapeless baggy coat. Get your winter coat in the right size and the right style for your outfit. A sleeveless jacket look trendy with a sweater.

 

Get your accessories right

Accessories have the power to make or break any look, so ensure you get your accessories right when styling a casual daywear look. Avoid wearing sparkly jewellery with your casual pieces. It would look too much. Keep your jewellery small and understated so you effortlessly chic.

 

Think Capsule

When shopping for your causal pieces, ensure you go with a shopping list of the pieces you need. Don’t just buy any piece you see. Shop for pieces you need to create various looks. A good way to go about this is to buy 3 colours for a good mix and match wardrobe. So black, white and khaki or blue, cream and khaki. Then you can include some colour into the mix with tops and accessories.

Charm Buying Guide: Choosing a Charm for Someone Else

Thinking of a gift for someone special is no easy task. For one, you want to give the impression that the gift is well thought out and that you considered the person’s lifestyle and personality in buying the item. For people who want to create an unforgettable gift-giving experience, sentimental gifts are the best choice.

They are called sentimental gifts because they take the receiver back to a special moment in their lives that bring them nostalgia. One example of a sentimental gift that is both meaningful and personal is a charm that the receiver can add to his or her bracelet to signify special occasions and important things in the wearer’s life.

To help you determine which silver charms to give to the special people in your life, Ross from Fraser Ross put together this guide on which charms are best to give on certain occasions:

 

For your newborn daughter

You don’t have to make your newborn baby wear jewelry at such an early stage, but you can buy a charm bracelet that they will be able to wear when they grow up. Build up a collection of charms that represent important milestones in your daughter’s life, and give it to her as a gift when she’s older. More than getting memorable charms, be sure to get a bracelet that is made from sterling silver, and stay away from nickel silver which can cause allergic contact dermatitis.

 

For your special someone

Nothing is more unique than your own love story. Mark your special moments with charms that can be customized with a personal message, and charms that are engraved with ‘Anniversary’. Giving a charm bracelet complete with charms that celebrate your love is a great way to make every moment count with your special someone.

 

Your sister

Charms are a great way to celebrate your special bond with your sibling. To make it more personalized, consider her personal style as well as the activities she enjoy doing, and get a necklace that will fit her lifestyle. For instance, if she likes hanging pendants and charms on her necklaces, you can get her a sterling silver or gold chain that can accommodate the weight of charms. If you intend to give her charms that are large and heavy, go for twisted link chains and heavy rope chains.

Making the gift personalized

If the person you are giving the charms to has a job that requires typing, you may want to get charms that will fit closely onto the bracelet so that they don’t get in the way when he or she is typing. If your sister or your special someone loves creative accents, buy dangle charms and Murano glass beads that will add drama and a touch of color to the gold or silver chain.

 

Types of charms

When shopping for charms, you will find that there are different types of charms that range in prices based on the material used and on the presence of stones or diamonds.

 

14k gold charms– luminous charms that are made from 14 karat gold. This type of charm is more resistant to scratch due to the presence of other non-gold metals. You can find 14k gold charms in a wide range of designs including opulent flowers, heart clip, and shimmering droplets

 

Sterling silver charms – this type of charm goes well with sterling silver chains. You can choose from dangle sterling silver charms, unicorn charms, and dog tag style charms, just to name a few.

 

Two tone charms (gold and silver) – the perfect type of charm to add elegance into your current charms collection. Two tone charms are made from 14 karat gold and sterling silver.

 

Murano glass charms – these charms draw on centuries of craftsmanship. Intricate methods and traditional techniques are used to create them. Murano glass charms are crafted to accentuate the beauty of color and the depth of the design.

 

When buying charms as a gift, it is important to choose charms that will not damage the bracelet. Pandora charms, for example, have an inner thread that allows the charms to move smoothly around the bracelet without causing scratches.
