The Sprinkles of Style team is back with a new post and this time, bringing you all the hottest trends in workwear that you need to know about. Below, you can see all the essentials to include in your wardrobe - enjoy!
With Millennials taking over the workplace, what we wear to work has become a little more relaxed shall we say.
Nevertheless, maintaining a culture of respect is still important, so it can be tricky knowing exactly where to draw the line! By combining timeless and elegant pieces, you can add a touch of class and professionalism with more playful items, creating your own look - yet still mean business. Here are some of the hottest 2018 trends that will help you do just that.
The Classic Blazer or Jacket
You can never go wrong with an elegant jacket or blazer in a neutral color. Dark shades like black, navy or gray pair well with virtually any colour!
Team it up with a simple white shirt if you're in important meetings that day, or wear it with a colourful piece when you're going for a more casual/ comfortable look.
It's one of those items that can be a real investment piece, so go for quality that will last and fit you well.
The Wrap Around Dress
Cute and sophisticated, these dresses come in a dazzling array of colors and styles making them a great choice for warm weather when you’ve got a nice pair of sandals to show off.
Office footwear has been pretty stagnant over the last few years, so we’re glad to see that a little more variety is making its way in at long last.
Pair them with some smart jeans for a decidedly masculine look that oozes confidence.
The Trench Is Back
Did the Trench coat even go out of style? The lighter materials make the perfect companion for those in-between days when the weather can’t decide which season it’s in yet....
Corporate wear doesn’t have to be boring, and a super smart pair of dress pants in a dark color are an excellent choice for a professional image. Combine them with a smart jacket and a layered necklace.
Spring Dress Shirts
Plain white is great for all occasions and looks great no matter what other colour you're wearing however, there's other colours to choose from along with subtle patterns to add a touch of personality.
For the professional look, keep things dark, sleek and fitted but switch things up and opt for flowing skirts which can add a more playful feel to your outfit.
Midi skirts can be styled in many different ways and worn all-year round.
Embrace The Blue Suit
Blue suits are definitely having a moment and not classic blue either - teal, cobalt, indigo and even turquoise are all coming out to play.
Livening up the workplace whilst maintaining an air of professionalism and sophistication.
Adding a touch of color to your wardrobe can be a good thing however, you need to find the perfect compromise between professional and too much.
The pinstripe shirt can add that touch of colour yet formalise the look too.
A Litte Effort Goes A Long Way
We know that hunting for the right workwear can be a pain and sometimes overwhelming however if you choose timeless pieces that you can style in different ways - you won't have a problem.
Take the time to get it right and you'll feel confident and better than ever in the workplace.
