If you’ve got an overstuffed closet, but nothing seems worthy to form a cohesive look, you need to refresh your wardrobe to make it office-ready without spending a fortune. Keep on reading to refresh your work wardrobe with these three inexpensive ways.
- Organize your closet keeping the classic pieces suitable for your work environment.
If your work environment calls for a conservative dress code, keep an eye for button-down shirts, pencil skirts, knitted sweater, feminine tops, midi-skirts, knee-length dresses and such making them more visible in your closet. If you have a creative office environment, culottes, dress pants, matching sets, and colorful print dresses may be great. Focus on the perfect fit that flatters you, and if you haven’t worn it in a year, you are unlikely to wear it ever again. You’ll wear clothes with greater style if you empty your wardrobe of the stuff you’ll never wear. You may pull everything out to truly get to know the “bones” of your wardrobe and make an honest assessment of what you see.
- Be creative in your layering by keeping an eye to your stylish outerwear.
Trench coats, wool coats, cashmere blazers, feminine tuxedo, structured jackets, and classic vests can add some spice to your office outfit, or even tame your too sexy tops and dresses. If you’re working in a conservative office, better opt for outerwear in neutral or muted shades with or without classic prints. However, a creative office environment calls for a bolder and more expressive office outfits like bright colors and creative prints as long as you keep the modesty in mind. Refresh your work wardrobe by exploring different combinations of the same items making them look new and fresh. Try on different combinations and see what works and what doesn’t. This way, you will find some unexpected combinations that can take your style to new heights.
- Be creative styling your office outfits with stylish accessories.
Whether you wear the same pieces over and over again, stylish and inexpensive accessories breathe new life into them. Whether a belt, a pair of shoes, a bag, a chain of necklace, or a pair of sunglasses, accessories can change the look of your outfit instantly with a little effort or expense. All you have to do is to look for stylish accessories you have in your closet and arrange them on racks where they will be more visible. You are much more likely to use your accessories creatively if you are looking at them while planning your look. But, if you don’t have a lot of accessories in your wardrobe, you may invest in a few from thrift stores that are often unique and stylish. Keep an eye on waist-cinching belts to tame your billowy and shapeless tops, as well as scarves that can be worn in multiple ways being functional and looking stylish.
Whenever you feel like nothing to wear for work, buying and investing in new pieces may not always be the solution. As you have seen, you may inexpensively refresh your work wardrobe by organizing them, mixing-and-matching classic pieces, and styling them with your fashionable accessories. This way, you’re taking your office style to new heights without spending a fortune.
