Show off with big accessories
Diana Lockhart (Christine Baranski) from The Good Wife is the owner of a large law firm. Despite this, she does not lock herself in strict sheath dresses and boring suits. The heroine constantly appears in things of bright colors, unusual texture or cut. Another feature of Diana's style is large accessories. If you are not ready for drastic changes in your office suit, massive necklaces-chains, unusual brooches, long earrings are an easy way to make your look more interesting.
Play with textures
Tweed, wool, jacquard, knitwear … What about leather? This fashionable material can also easily fit into a business wardrobe. With a few buts: if the silhouettes of leather things are laconic, and their shades are muted. For example, a burgundy jacket with a turn-down collar will do - as in the image of Maggie (Debi Meyzar) from the TV series "Young". The same rule applies to suede, vinyl and corduroy.
Borrow informal elements
A useful life hack for those who find the classic style too strict. Try looking in stores for formal items, but referring to different styles thanks to the silhouette or decorative elements. The master class can be given by the main character of the series "Instinct" - Lizzie Nidam (Bojana Novakovic). In her business wardrobe, there are things with elements of a sporty style: a snow-white blouse with a zipper, more reminiscent of a bomber jacket, or a jacket with stripes - like a fitness trousers.
Try new colors
We know the win-win combination "white top - black bottom" since school, but besides these two shades, there are others that look good and uncommon together and fit into the framework of an office uniform. For example, a combination of beige and brown - like Jean Halloway (Naomi Watts) from the TV series "Gypsy". In her look, it is a milk jumper and a chocolate-colored suede skirt, but the combination of shades will work beautifully in the case of a turtleneck and leather trousers, a dress and jacket and everything that you are used to seeing in black and white.
Experiment with casual friday
Let's say a strict dress code allows you more freedom on Friday or days when you don't have appointments. This means that you have the opportunity to wear bright knitwear to work. The solution is very fashionable, but neon tones are not worth choosing: take a closer look at muted green or blue - like the pullover Gene Milburn (Gillian Anderson) from the series "Sex Education". Additional accessories can also be spied on her: a red scarf tied like a tie is an idea worthy of a copy-paste action.>
