What to wear to worl this winter? Office inspired looks and street styles!
But you know what? It does feel good to be back on track, and as a new year unfolds in front of me I swear, yet again, by a few New Year’s resolutions (don’t we all?): go to the the gym more, stay fit, eat healthy, be kind, work harder, have fun, travel more, get a new camera, change my look, be more daring and brave fashion wise, take myself less seriously, yet be serious and professional at all times, meet new people, spot new job/business opportunities. My… quite the list, isn’t it? The truth is a new year does come with a somewhat freshness to it, pro-activeness and desire to change it all around for the better. It’s sort of like a new chance that’s being given to us once every year and I do wish you all, my lovely readers, the very best. May you all have a fabulous 2013! Let’s make the best of it!
As January 2013 comfortably settles in we ditch the NYE & Christmas glitter and glitz for enormous scarves, oversized posh coats & cool knits. All the pretty professional ladies run their heels off at 9 a.m., bundled up in office outfits while sipping their coffees to go. Usually after NYE we don’t really seem to care that much what we wear to work, do we? Of course, this fashion pause does not last too long, but I do sense we’re all a bit more style relaxed and take ourselves less seriously. Thank God! It’s fashion after all, not rocket science. So what’s to do on those blank mornings when our packed closets seem so empty and not fashion appropriate? Well that’s easy… we gotta start thinking winter trends. FashionTag has covered some of these trends for you a while back so click here for some extra fashion inspiration: parkas, fur-hats, ankle boots, coats, socks, knitwear, fur, oversized trend, leather, sneakers, cut-offs & tights, army jackets.
So with a few fashion tips right up our sleeves... choosing our office style and outfit will be but a piece of cake. Whether you’re working in a bank, corporate company, advertising agency or you’re on the more creative side… 2013 Winter Fashion Tips For What To Wear To Work are easy: it has to look & feel good. Comfy shoes on & heels in your big bag. We all hate having to run on skyscrapers in the morning rush hour, right? Big scarves. Lots of layers. Silky top or plain T-shirt & a cardigan or blazer on top for a more professional look (the boucle CHANEL inspired blazer is my all time fave and goes with absolutely anything). Go for classic cuts if you want to keep it simple and clean or for more edgy styles & bold colors if you’re feeling adventurous. Then it’s trousers! Jeans for a casual office look or some fabulous patterned textured trousers for a glam-chic style. Yet for a simple classic look opt for high waisted suit trousers in any color you like (dark shades come in handy though). For less style headaches go for dresses: classic, edgy, girly, mini, long, thick, silky whichever style you love most and pair them with blazers, vests, cardigans or sweaters. Skirts & leggings also look amazing with a cool professional top. My go-to-office-clothes that get me out of any fashion trouble? Oversized tops, layers, skinny bottoms, ankle boots or ballet pumps & always heels in my bag. Jazz it up with your coat (leopard print, studded sleeves, military style, bright colored, furry) and don’t be afraid to mix and match styles: sporty chic, office glam, rock-geek, punk-posh… Sky’s the limit, right?
You all know by now I’m not too fond of fashion rules and I do encourage fashion freedom and dressing to your mood, feeling relaxed and having fun while mixing and matching styles. And I do tend to apply the same style pattern for work, while keeping in mind one thing: it has to look professional. That’s it. Having said that don’t be afraid to step out of the box: jeans can look professional with a silky blouse and a structured vest or blazer. Ballet pumps look amazing with almost anything at the office. All can be made to look work appropriate. Oh… and almost forgot: pile up on jewellery ladies. They give glam & edge to any outfit. Plus opt for a big bag & pack your heels. They’re usually a must to work and they do make us look pretty smart, so climb up in style: thick ones for comfy & stilettos for uber glam. Chic, glam, casual, fun, smart…Which one’s your office style & your never-leave-work-without fashion piece?

What to Wear to Work When It's REALLY Hot Out
Looking for a polished office look fit for the summer heat? Enter the sleeveless blazer. Much like a traditional suit jacket, it will add the extra office-appropriate detail that your summer dress or trousers beg for, with minimal bulk.
Take a cue from some chic ladies and scroll down to find the three ways we're wearing our sleeveless blazers to the office this summer.
With a Printed Dress
While printed dresses are tricky to style for the workplace, a sleeveless blazer does just the trick. Belted, buttoned, or loosely hanging open, the indoor outerwear covers just enough of the print to subdue while exposing just enough of your fun, summery vibe.
With a Pair of Trousers
Consider it the new pantsuit. Mix colors, textures, or shop a set; the fact remains that a sleeveless blazer and pants is a great way to rock the borrowed-from-the-boys vibe and retain your feminine flair at the same time.
With a Crisp Shirtdress
Ah, the shirtdress. The world's answer to pretty much everything. A crisp white style on its own may seem a bit too plain for the office, but simply slip into a sleeveless vest and you immediately look as if you've pulled out the big guns. Chic as it may be, no one has to know it was the simplest outfit fix out there!
