11 Workwear Key Fashion Staples to Smarten Up Your Powerful Lady Boss Vibes

Do you have a job? Work in an office? Are you a woman? This workwear article is for you!

We all want to make our workwear attire send the right message. I want to look powerful and commanding and give the keen lady boss vibes! Well, if you ask me, giving your attire a sharp and bold lady boss persona isn’t that hard. All it takes is confidence and all the right workwear staples. I’ve picked out all the workwear essentials that you'll need to stun your co-workers and bosses with your lady boss charm.

Let's take a look:

 

Shift Dresses

New to shift dresses? Get excited! In case you aren’t sure about its details, a shift dress is a short dress that is more modest in showing your body shape. These dresses were glamorized by style icons Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn in the ‘50s and ‘60s. They tend to be plain with A-line skirts, empire waists, and may be sleeveless. Shift dresses are a must-have for workwear. They brim up your statement with elegance and polished grace. You can flaunt these shift dresses with sharp blazers, stockings, and black Jimmy Choo’s.

Sharply Structured Blazers

A woman simply cannot amplify her lady boss vibes at work if she doesn’t own enough different designs and colors in sharp blazers. Consider these dark hued blazers to set the tone for formal dressing. Pair them up with your statement blouses, pencil skirts, sheath dresses, and ankle pants.

Mix in variety with neutral tones, such as black, blue, white, nude, tan, and browns. You can also be a trendsetter at work by sneaking in designs such as military-style blazers, cardigan jackets, leather blazers, and squared-shoulders.

Structured Totes

The importance of a structured and dark-hued tote simply cannot be denied. It is vital to infuse your lady boss vibes with contemporary chicness. Totes allow a working woman like you to carry belongings in style, while also speaking volumes about your style savviness and vogue. Consider investing in brands such as Michael Kors, Coach, Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Celine. For more accessories check out some of my summer accessories ideas!

Pencil Bodycon

Whoever invented bodycon-fit pencil dresses did womankind a HUGE favor! These dresses allow us to play up our curves without worrying about minor imperfections. A pencil dress is just what a woman needs to slim down her waist and give her curvature a structured appeal. I think I own an endless variety of pencil dresses and use them to break the monotony of blazers and suits with its ravishing curve-highlighting fit. I adore how pencil dresses allow us to strike all the right chords of sexiness without compromising any of the cardinal rules of workwear elegance.

Big-Dial Watch

A high-end designer watch featuring a big glossy dial is a must-have accessory for the working woman. A bold watch smartens up a working woman's personality and style. Select the right watch to seal all your workwear statements and expect a designer watch to infuse your outfit with powerful lady boss vibes.

Sheath Dresses

Sheaths are sharply structured dresses that highlight each and every inch of our curvature. Sheaths cinch up the waist and giving our figures a shapely and proportionate look. These dresses are a must-have trend for work as they make women look incredibly smart, charming, and sharp. Regardless of your profession, you simply can’t go wrong with bold-hued and feminine printed sheath dresses. Color coordinate these with other items using my color composition ideas. Honestly, these work for any and every occasion. Be it a board meeting or a formal lunch with your clients, these dresses will bring out the best in your body!

Pointy-Toe Pumps

The perfect way to complete a smart workwear statement is with a voguishly chic pair of pointy-toe pumps. You can pick out the perfect heel height for your own outfits. I believe that if a woman doesn’t feel comfortable in high heels, she shouldn't force her feet through the ordeal. So, choose your pick from block heeled pumps, kitten heels, stiletto pumps, and the massively trend mule sandals.

Wrap Dresses

These insanely voguish wrap dress drape your curves with chic folds of fabric, which gives your bust a structured appeal, shrouds belly fat and makes the figure look smarter and slimmer. They help women give a sensual fit to their curvy busts, so if you want to strike all the right chords of sensuality at work, you must own these in an endless variety. I strongly urge you to play them up in dark colors like navy blue, maroon, red and berry.

Pencil Skirts

If you want to do justice to your bust and curvature, set a meeting to checkout the sensual elegance of pencil skirts. I love my high-waisted pencil skirt as it tucks in the gently protruding muffin tops, making my waist look petite and curvy. These beauties are your best trick to sneak in some bold colors and prints into your workwear wardrobe. A good pencil skirt perfectly amplifies your lady boss vibes. You can flaunt these beauties with cropped tailored jackets, blazers, chiffon blouses, silk tops, and lots more.

Fit & Flare Workwear

For women who seek to infuse their lady boss vibes with feminine sensuality, fit & flare dresses are their best pick. These voguishly chic dresses have an infectiously charming ladylike-vibe, and they are designed to highlight a femme’s petite waist and slim down her bust with a romantic flare and above-the-knee finish.

Power Suits

The Parisian femmes are some of the most graceful and elegant women in the world! They never shy away from flaunting the boldness of a sharply structured power suit. You see ladies, a moment of menswear can brim up your personality with confidence and boldness as it gives your feminine charm a masculine power.

Be careful to avoid those awkwardly lanky and loose suits, they will only deny the curvature of your body. The trick is to pick out a ravishingly fitted suit with a plunging V-neck. Play up your subtle sensuality and fit your body like second-skin. Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton will treat you to a splendid variety to shop this trend.

 

That concludes our meeting on workwear key fashion staples. I hope you enjoyed all that I've covered in our session. I'll see you at the water cooler!

It’s all your style!

Strappy cross-over necklines, bikini bottoms with side-straps, strappy halters, high-necks and midriff-revealing cross-over swimwear are all the rage this summer. These sexy delights are a splendid trend for an audaciously bold beachwear wardrobe. I adore the confidence it instills in me by playing up the hottest parts of my curvature. Cross-over strap suits lend my profile an edgy, racy glamour. It’s a contemporary trend with a voguishly modern vibe. You have no reason to miss out on its sultry style!

If you want to give your beachwear a beaming bit of romance and a fine dose of feminine sensuality, invest in heaps of floral prints! You can pick out colorful and bright hues, such as reds, berries, blues, and pastels to amp up the energy of your swimwear look. Remember to brush up on color composition as I explained in my recent article. You can experiment with bold trends to enhance your sensuality.

My Diary

Post ID:

Did you ever wish there was some magic way to make your clothing prettier? But without spending money?

Amazingly, I learned the way and it was as simple as Roy G. Biv. I’ll share it with you in just a few easy tips to enhance your fashion without spending a penny!

Color Spectrum

Color is the purest form of expression and pairing colors can make or break your outfit. I have personally observed many occasions in which people grabbed all the attention just because of perfect color composition. No extra expense, just coordination. That’s why I always emphasize the need for familiarity with color theory. Clothing color theory helps us understand the relevance of colors with others to enhance style. Basics clothing color composition will add beauty and color sense to your every outfit. So, get ready to create a stronger awareness of color!

What is Color Theory?

Color changes with hue. Hue is the main property of color and describes color in the way that most people might simply say “red”, “yellow”, or “blue” – it is the pure form of color. Meanwhile other factors such as colorfulness, brightness, and saturation are some of the other aspects of how we describe a color. Intensity and vividness of the color is known as its saturation and when the saturation value changes new colors occur. Red, yellow, and blue are the primary colors which get mixed in different ways to create secondary colors. Secondary colors generate when primary colors get mixed and tertiary colors come into existence on the combination of secondary colors.

We also use the terms “warm” and “cool” for colors. The colors derived from blue hue fall in the category of cool colors and they include light and soothing colors like violet, green, and pink. On the other hand, warm colors emerge from red and yellow tones. Neutral colors don’t cast any strong impression and rarely grab the attention, i.e. black, beige, and olive.

Monochromatic Clothing Color Matching

I am fond of monochromatic color mixing because of the outstanding outcomes. Monochromatic color mixing involves the mixing of two colors from the same family of hues. Three to four degrees of saturation difference is necessary to make the perfect match. Blacker, whiter, and grayer versions of the same colors are used for this purpose. For example, wearing a light blue shirt and a dark blue skirt is the perfect example of monochromatic color matching. Isn’t it easy peasy to achieve? And you’ll always look classic in your clothing!

Analogous Color Matching

So, ladies our next type is analogous color composition and I need a color wheel to help me. If you match colors in such a manner that three colors which are adjacent to each other on the wheel, then you’ve created an analogous color combination. I start by selecting a primary color for my outfit, let’s say orange. amber and vermilion are easily matched due to sharing the same color family. I always prefer the color which is closer to the parent color to avoid the “too much” factor. Keep in mind that one color should be dominant while the other two should serve as supporting colors.

Clothing Color Wheel

Complementary Colors

Complementary color composition is the most exuberant way of color mixing. It is shocking yet you will find yourself drawn to it due to the appealing contrast it creates. The name of this category hints that these colors need to complete each other. Choose colors directly across from each other on the color wheel to make vibrant yet enticing combinations. These draw the eye and give you liberty to match accessories from different colors families. You could achieve a dramatic complementary color look by starting with orange and identifying that blue is its complement. This is a super fun way to create outfits.

Split Color Mixing

Split color mixing brings innovative results. It is generally known as the most flattering color combination. In this technique, first you need to pick a base color from the color wheel. Second pick the color directly adjacent, e.g. red and orange. It’s a more dimensional yet feasible way of color combining perfect outfits. These are ideal for those who enjoy bold choices. I suggest plus-sized women opt for split colors because they give clothing a beautiful shaping effect and add personality.

Triadic Color Clothing Combination

Triadic color combination is the pairing of three colors which are equidistant from each other. I opt for this strategy when I need to decide colors for my multi-colored outfits and floral patterns. One color always remains dominant while the other two act as supporting colors.

Now that you have the secret to color combining, revisit the clothing in your favorite outfits. Try different colors and check out the results for yourself. Isn’t it interesting?

Life is beautiful and colors have made it rich by adding their hues and making everything awe-inspiring. Don’t hesitate to experience new things and match colors on your own. I love mistakes because they lead us to new ideas. Observe different patterns of colors so new ideas come into mind and boost your creativity. You will really feel like a designer and enjoy self-designed outfits. Don’t forget risks are the part of every successful strategy. So, never ruin the fun of color mixing and be brave enough to take bold decisions. Keep type of occasion, age, and body shape in your mind while making a color composition for someone. Play with colors and follow the above mentioned points to match colors like a pro!

It’s all your style!
