We all love to see what’s coming in the way of colors and silhouettes but it's hard to work out how they might work for you at the office. We’re here to help with our take on the latest trends for Summer Fall and Winter 2019 and how they translate to what to wear to work.
TREND NO 1: ELEGANCE
Tight Skirts with Blazers:
In all the Fashion Week Parades, the slim bottom silhouette was created with bicycle shorts – the same look can be created with a slim fitting skirt. Pair it with a blazer and you’ve got a really elegant look that’s also comfortable to wear:
Cinched Waste and Shoulder Pads
Take the look one step further up the fashion ladder by pulling in the waist of the jacket in and adding a shoulder-pad to emphasise the look
Make Sure your Bag adds to the Look:
The final touch to really tell the world you mean business is a great Work Tote and we’ve got the best there is! A BfB Tote shouts business style on the outside and functionality on the inside and helps you stay organized while you lead your busy life.
TREND NO 2: PREPPY
Unisex is back but with a fun, preppy twist. Nothing looks better than a woman in a masculine suit – but with a touch of humour and fun! There’s something fierce and fabulous about a woman who feels confident enough to look powerful as well as be powerful.
TREND NO 3: The 80’s
Animal Print just keeps coming back again and again and again. It never really goes away although it can be hard to make it work in an office environment. You can't go wrong with a wrap dress - they suit every figure and the animal print looks stylish and sophisticated.
You don't have to wear the animal print to hit the right fashion note, you can carry it! Our beautiful Lindsay Laptop Bag has just the right balance of pattern and shine to make you stand out in any office and show the world that just because you mean business you haven't abdicated style!
There are boiler suits that make you look like a tradesman and there are boiler suits that look like a beautiful suit – they are incredibly comfortable to wear and look great in an office environment.
Purple and Lilac
Lilac is everywhere this summer and is then morphing into Purple for the upcoming fall and winter.
Brights and Paisley
Paisley is such a fun pattern but its easy to overdo it -here’s some suggestions on bringing the fun of paisley into the office while still looking stylish and sophisticated
The Perfect Laptop Case for all your Office Needs:
Our handmade leather laptop sleeve doubles as a fabulous office carrying case - its paisley interior makes a huge fashion statement.
Some small bags are so small all you can carry is a lipstick – great for going out at night but for the office you need a few more necessities. Have a look at our Lucy Bag as a great compromise – its small and compact but every square inch is practical from the inbuilt wallet to the padded section for your tablet, iPad or smart phone.
What to wear to work is a dilemma we face everyday. We need to stay in touch with fashion trends but not be too slavish in the way we adapt them for the office. I hope this helps give you some ideas on how your work wardrobe can be both fashionable and functional - just like our fabulous BfB Work Bags.
