Work outfits can often be seen as a necessary evil. They are required to be worn when working in a professional environment, whether it is at your local café or accounting firm. On top of our increasingly heavy workloads, wearing the same outfits every day in the same drab colors can make our work feel like even more of a chore. Below is a list of advice on how to spice up your work uniform.
One aspect that can damper your mood when working is to constantly wear dark colors such as grey, brown, and back. Try experimenting by adding more colors to your work wardrobe. Why not buy a suit in pink, blue or yellow? Wearing more colors can lift your spirits and can add more vibrancy to the workplace in general.
Patterns can be a great way to add more dimension and intrigue to your outfit. A matching two-piece suit or top and skirt instantly makes your outfit look more put together. Tweed and checked are great sophisticated patterns that are appropriate in most workplaces. Florals are also a good way to add life and color to an ordinary outfit. Perhaps try a long flowery dress or a floral suit.
Wearing heels every day can not only be boring but also can cause long-term damage to your feet. So why not switch them up for some boots instead. Find your most Comfortable Work Boots and try them out with your favorite work trousers or dresses and see how well they match. Find boots with a sensible heal at either ankle or knee height as they should be suitable for most work environments. Neutral colors such as black, beige, and white should go with any outfit. Investing in a good pair of boots also means that they will last longer, which is necessary if you spend most of your working day running from meeting to meeting.
Some of us have more rigid uniforms than others. Whilst some might only require you to keep to a certain color scheme, others have a set uniform that you have no choice but to wear. When wearing set uniforms such as nurses’ slacks or a retailer’s clothes, why not add some additional accessories to spice up the look. You could try a colorful headband or flashy socks to add a bit of life to your otherwise drab outfit.
