Well hello sunshine! It has been a while. The glorious weather is upon us and we are ready to embrace the latest seasonal trends. It is just a perfect time to bring a bit of colour and zest into your daily wardrobe, flirt with new accessories; just blossom away.
Floral, denim, suede and the seventies have inspired catwalk trends and why not consider them for the weekend pleasures. It may be a bit tricky to incorporate these into a formal wardrobe. Nevertheless, certain garments or elements could add a bit of fun, be on trend and carry us to the office desks.
Feminine, delicate and eye-catching. On the surface: gorgeous, in reality, floral patterns are not that easy to flatter. If you wish to be blooming in the workplace, consider these pointers as the flower designs vary from bold and prominent, to fine and delicate.
3 ways to wear floral patterns:
- Wear them with neutrals or muted colors. Watercolored hues will add a little savoir vivre
- Pair the garden inspired patterns with heels sophisticating your image
- Clean lines & separates. Opt for straight, simple cuts. Leave the ruffles alone to keep a polished, modernized edge
If your office etiquette requires a more cohesive attire, try the floral patterns on accessories. Tote bags, silk scarves or jewelry with floral ensembles can be the ultimate touch to create the spring inspired style.
Say farewell to the favored and forgiving ‘blacks’ and be adventurous with color. Vivid and radiant, bright tones will transform your work wardrobe into something special. Even just a pop of color may formulate a mood lifting collection. Some studies have shown that certain colors can even have an impact on our performance.
- Yellow has a warming effect but it can also cause annoyance…wear with caution
- Green is considered calming
- Orange symbolises energy
With color-blocking and rainbow hues, add a bit of raspberry, a dash of lemon or a splash of blue to your daily ‘work-wear smoothie’.
With chilly mornings and a breezy sunrise parting with your cosy jacket may be tough. Blazers and light trench coats serve as a perfect cover and can in fact be your seasonal center piece. Softly tailored blazers add lightness, creating a graceful silhouette. A classic trench adds instant polish to the office-ready style.
