How to Look Stylish and Follow a Corporate Dress Code

Office dress codes are often strict and they can be a sartorial wet blanket when you’re trying to look cute at work. Many corporate dress codes call for conservative, often dated looks, not straying too far from a uniform comprising a black suit jacket, crisp white shirt, and black suit pants. If this sounds familiar to you, we recommend you keep reading: We have some thoughts on how you can technically follow such a code but still look on-trend and stylish.

Invest in Designer Pieces

Invest in a couple of designer suit jackets and pants that you know will take your from boring to cool and chic. Also, they’ll last you a long time as well! Try this linen blazer by Eileen Fisher from Neiman Marcus.

Tailor Your Outfit

Nothing strikes us as more unfashionable than a woman wearing an ill-fitting suit, and if you are required by your office to wear one to work every day, then having one tailored to fit your body is going to instantly heighten your daily look.

Accessorize with Jewelry

Stock your accessories closet with on-trend things: statement-making bucket bags, eye-catching jewelry. You’ll still technically be following the rules, but your look will be just a little jazzier. Try adding this elegant watch to your wardrobe by Triwa.

Invest in Designer Footwear

Nothing can look more dull, than boring footwear. Jazz things up by investing in some designer ’70s-inspired black platform pumps. Try Kate Spade’s Licorice pumps!
