Frolic formal: If you are someone who regularly meets executives, you might be asked to come dressed in business formals. A tailored suit in a solid, neutral colours like black, gray or navy can be paired with a white collared button-up shirt — a classic pairing for men. Women can pair-up their well-cut pantsuit or skirt suit in a conservative neutral colour such as black, navy or brown with a collared white shirt buttoned-up.
Smart semi-formal: Wearing casuals to work is an art of adding personality to the workwear without looking unprofessional. Skirts or a pair of trousers with a cardigan can be one choice for women. Pair it with solid coloured or muted pattern shirts in checks or stripes. Men can pick a collared button-up in any colour to pair it with a black trousers or pressed khakis in the summer.
Classic casual: For the lucky ones allowed to wear casuals to work, remember not to go over the top with your dress-up. Casual dressing also leaves room for individuality and slight experimentation. Men can pair collared polos with casual slacks or a dark denim. Choose muted patterned polos over novelty designs to be able to mix in while making a subtle statement. Well-fitted tops and blouses with cotton slacks or denims can be an option for women. Mix it up with dresses and skirts.
Footwear: Footwear adds the final touch to the outfit. For women, flats are more comfortable and functional than heels while at work. Platform heels are the best for working women for being stylish and comfortable at the same time. Also, wedges look chic and glamorous without being over the top.
For men, Oxford, derby shoes and loafers are formal, classy and high on the style quotient. A pair of brown shoes catches more attention and adds another layer to your outfit. Dark brown shoes are easier to pull off than light brown ones. However, a pair of classic black shoes goes with primarily everything that you wear and has been never out of vogue.
