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.
