Formal dress up reminds us of shirts, pants, blazers, pencil skirts and towering heels. When it comes to formal styling, we usually find limited options. Those old school days were so hassle free just because we had uniforms. But what if we tell you that there are many more options and you can style yourself differently every day!
Yes, you heard us right. Scroll down to upgrade your formal styling game.
START WITH THE BASICS
Ditch your shirt and go back to the basics. Take out your white/black tank top and pair it up with a regular pant. Throw on a structured blazer and your comfortable heels. Complete the look with a formal bag or light jewellery.
A DOZEN DESIGNS OF SHIRTS
Don’t stick to a single classic design of the shirt. Try on new styles as per your body type. Add different collar styles like plain and embellished. Go for ruffles and bows. They look super stylish and formal. Play with prints. Go for small prints if you are curvy. Big prints are best for slim body type. Add stripes to your formal wardrobe. Horizontal stripes are best for slim body type while vertical stripes add an illusion of height.
CLASSIC TOPS AND BLOUSES
Invest in formal tops. These are ultra-flexible since they can be worn on a casual occasion as well. These include sheer, bell sleeves, puffed sleeves, bows, and silk fabric. Just add a structured bottom and voila! You are done.
ELEGANT SKIRTS AND PANTS
When we talk about the bottoms in formal wear, we think of pencil skirts and fitted pants. But there’s a lot more to it. Apart from the classic pencil skirts, there are many other options like A-line skirts, box pleated skirt, midi skirts, tulip skirts and wrap skirts. Choose them according to your body type.Moving on to formal pants, there are trousers and chinos to start with. Also, you can add wide leg pants, culottes and paper bag pants to your wardrobe for a change.
JUMPSUITS FOR MONDAY BLUES
Jumpsuits are not only for a casual day but also for a business meeting. Invest in a monochrome elegant jumpsuit. Choose the colour best suits you. The easy way is to buy a plain black or red jumpsuit. You can go for nude colours as per your choice. They are super easy to style and look elegant.
LONG VESTS AND BLAZERS
Blazers are a life saver in formal wear. They are super versatile and almost go with everything. But it’s time to try something new. How about a long vest? They are very comfortable and stylish. Try on them over a jumpsuit or a monochromatic outfit. Heads turn for sure!!
