    Safari-Chic for work

    We might not able to take off on a whim on safari in the African desert but we sure can get in the mood with safari-chic outfits.  Update your summer work wardrobe by using key pieces to create the look effortlessly without going “jungle” from head to toe.

    Start with a utility shirt and simple pencil skirt for sophisticated styling.  We focused more on accessories while keeping the clothing professional for work.  Finish off with earth-toned yet standout accessories to add on the safari effect.  The python print tote adds a jolt of color in red.  Feel free to switch up for more subtle shoes such as sleek pumps in beige, khaki, or stone.


    We also adore this safari style dress in a crisp silhouette, makes summer office dressing as easy as 1-2-3.

    Top Tips & Tricks for Casual Office Style

    Are you currently in the rut of dressing really casual? You don’t need to run out and buy a whole new wardrobe tomorrow. Take it one day or week at a time. These three changes will make the biggest impact with the smallest effort.

     

    Fabsy

     

    Shoes- swap sneaker or flip flops for a more tailored shoe. We chose Fabsy ballet flat from Nine West. It also comes in black and dark green for under $50.

     

    Gap Petite Womens Dark Perfect Boot Jeans (Dark Wash)

     

    Denim – leave the torn styles at home. Pick up a pair of dark wash jeans for the office.  Gap Petite Womens Dark Perfect Boot Jeans (Dark Wash) also come in regular and tall sizes.

     

    Bloom Flower Necklace

     

    Accessorize – A basic t-shirt can be quickly woken up and an outfit pulled together with the right accessories.  This Bloom Flower Necklace from Stella & Dot has the perfect feminine touch with a hand-painted floral clasp.

    Workchic Reader Question: Can I Wear Sequins to the Office?

    We recently had Sophia email us asking the question that has been the topic of many discussions with our Workchic friends!

    Can you wear Sequins to the Office?

    The answer is of course you can!  There is no reason why you can’t add some sparkle to a cute pair of flats or a chiffon blouse.  It isn’t just meant for nighttime.  You can achieve that glam effect without going overboard if you wear this trend in a subtle way.  We love how the celebs below added some shimmer to their wardrobe. Images courtesy of Google images.

    We found some Workchic options to add some sparkle to your work wardrobe.

    Wear the Sequin Tie Back Metal statement necklace with a boyfriend blazer.  It dresses up any casual knit sweater or T-Shirt.

    Pair the Printed Mixed Sequin Top or the Sequin Explosion Back Drape Top underneath a blazer for a business casual office look.

     You can wear the  Diane von Furstenberg Nika Sequin Python Print Flats with a pair of dark bootcut denim paired with a blazer for casual Fridays at the office. 
    This Sequin Dropwaist Mesh Top is a great way to add some shine into your business casual wardrobe. This would look great with black pants or a black pencil skirt.  Going out after work?  This Say What Sequined Cardigan adds just the right amount of sparkle to a basic black dress without being over the top at the office. 

    Have fun with this trend this season!
