As much fun as that sounds, incorporating trends into your office look could be quite a task. But worry not ‘coz we’re here to help you out with just that! This is the ultimate guide on how you can get inspired…
 

Polka dots

Polka dots

Polka dots always give us a major throwback to the good ol’ 50s when every woman flaunted her polka dotted ensembles with élan. And yet, even today polka dots remain the runway favourite.

For a casual Friday to work, you can wear a polka dot print shirt and team it with up with a pair of dull red palazzo pants. If the red is too loud for you, choose a rust, powder blue or even white! Trendy yet classy, right?

 

Patchwork

Patchwork

This eclectic trend is not your average grandmother’s quilt but a slight take on colour blocking. You can wear this trend to work by wearing a plaid patchwork shirt and balance it out with a white skirt. Complete the look with a pair of nude heels!

 

Khaki

Khaki

Khaki is the new black! You can incorporate this trend in your workwear wardrobe by wearing a pair of khaki pants with a grey T-shirt. Team it up with a black blazer and nude heels. You will be strutting to work in style!

 

Mix and match

Confused about how to rock the mix and match trend with ease? Play with prints and fabrics by pairing a pin striped shirt with a pleated skirt. And don’t forget those heels!

 

White shirt dress

White shirt dress

Give your little black dress a break and add an LWD to your workwear wardrobe instead! Wear it with a pair of two-toned brogues on days when you’ve got somewhere else to be post work.

 

Post Minimalism

Post Minimalism

Another take on the monotone trend, this is an easy way to bring out subtle detailing even in the most minimalist outfit. Go all white with a blazer and a shirt and offset your look with a pair of slouchy pants in a shade from the same colour family.

 

Yellow fever

Yellow fever

Wearing the primrose yellow or lemon yellow is an easy way to win your work look. You can rock this trend by wearing a navy blue formal blouse with a yellow skirt and nude heels. If you want a pop of colour, wear neon danglers.

 

Bold stripes

Bold stripes

Go bold this season! To do this trend justice, reach for the most eye-catching stripes. You can sartorially play with this trend by wearing bold striped pants with a white blouse and a navy blue blazer.
