Back with a fashion-forward edge

 

No thanks to the lack of choices when it comes to formal wear, many of us fashion-conscious youngsters find dressing up for work a chore. How does one even transition from the workplace to girls’ night out in a stuffy collared blouse and movement-restricting pencil skirt?! 

Monochrome officewear belongs in the 1970s, when workers had to blend in with everyone else. Good news is, we’re no longer confined to boring ol’ black-and-white – G2000 has reinvented office wear with these 5 styles that will get you psyched for work every day:

 

1. Pastel party

 

Hello, sunshine! Stand out from a sea of drab and give yourself a more fun-loving, approachable vibe with cheery pastel pieces. Don’t be afraid to use fun colours like pink or yellow – since you’re picking softer versions of the colours, there’ll be an illusion of simplicity that won’t get you written up for being OTT.

  • On Pepita:
    2-in-1 collar, $29
    Cardigan, $69
    Shorts, $39
  • On Lucas:
    Bomber jacket, $189
    Polo tee, $49
    5-pocket pants, $69
 

2. Monochrome minimalist

 

Not into bright colours? Avoid morphing into an office uncle or auntie by adding some texture to a B&W outfit – simple prints can provide a cool edge, and lace details always make ladies look extra lovely.

  • On Pepita:
    Camisole, $36
    Skirt, $45
  • On Lucas:
    Shirt, $69
    Formal pants, $69
 

3. Gotta love gradients

 

In-your-face sunset gradients were all the rage a while back. But to keep things appropriate for the workplace, try some understated gradients instead – such as a darker blouse with a lighter bottom of same colour, or perhaps a shirt with subtly different-hued panels.

On Pepita:
Lace blouse, $79
Shorts, $39

On Lucas:
Pattern shirt, $69
5-pocket pants, $69

 

4. Experiment with colour blocking

 

Just ‘cause you’re out in the adult world doesn’t mean your dressing has to be uninspired –  pick one bright statement piece to jazz up an otherwise plain getup, and show some personality. Throwing on a vest or blazer will retain a tinge of formality.

  • On Pepita:
    Pin striped vest, $109
    Camisole, $36
    Knee length skirt, $36
  • On Lucas:
    Checked blazer, $279
    5-pocket pants, $69
    Polo tee, $49
 

5. Blue is the new black

 

If you want to look put-together without appearing too serious, switch out the black for navy blue. Further break the severity of your look by adding subtle accents in light colours – a white belt or shoes would do the trick.

  • On Pepita:
    Dress, $99
  • On Lucas:
    Blazer, $169
    Pattern shirt, $69
    5-pocket pants, $69
