Stop being so formal!











Tailor made pants: Mohan Singh Place
Bag: Sisley
Ring and necklace: Lovisa
Pumps: New Look
Shirt: Tailor-made from Raymonds

From now on I will be sitting in my office all alone in a huge conference room. My only team member and friend in this new city left for good. Her absence bores me like hell...*sigh*..but I know this too shall pass! 

This outfit is like a reminder of the times when I use to dress up in all formals. Although it's challenging and fun to style formal wear but I am thankful that I no longer work at a place where there's a dress code to follow. 

Here's a lowdown on how to make your formal wear a little more interesting than usual:

/Don't just stick to doing a top-bottoms-shoes look. Add a least one accessory to make it less boring.

/Invest in statement pants. Best is to get your pants tailor-made. Just give an inspiration picture of your fave design to the tailor. 

/Add more colours to your formal wear collection. For example: Instead of buying in a black suit which everyone does, get a cherry red or a mustard coloured suit would make you stand you.

/Rule of thumb: Don't wear open-toe footwear with formal outfits.

/If you mostly wear shirts then invest in things like vests, belts, necklaces and bracelets in minimal designs.

    1. If you are towards the heavier side then also you can wear these pants. Just pair a top/shirt which is well fitted (not tight).

  13. The pants are perfect! I've been looking for a well-fitting crisp white shirt just like the one you're wearing. Maybe I should get it tailor-made too. The icing on the cake is the neck piece :) Love the ring as well. I hope you'll do more workplace-friendly fashionable attire in the future.
