Spring fashion trends can be challenging to wear in the office unless you’re working in a creative or casual environment. A great thing, there are a bunch of stylish trends this spring that translates well for us working ladies, so keep on reading for our 5 ways to make those spring trends office friendly.
- Subtly incorporate floral and tropical motifs into your work wardrobe.
If your workplace allows you to wear prints, resort to floral motifs or tropical accents to make your style spring-inspired. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, you may simply top your plain colored office outfit with a printed blazer featuring spring prints. Or, trade your casual jeans to a pair of floral pants if you’re working in a casual office that allows sneakers, bomber jackets, and tees.
- Opt for suede ensembles to create a springy look.
If you’re working in a creative office where culottes, flared pants, and palazzo trousers are acceptable, think of switching to a suede fabric that will scream spring on your office looks. Earthy shades of rust, camel, brown, and red-orange are great, but if you’re seeking for a dressier look, stick to the shades of black, gray, or navy. Suede pencil skirts will go well with your corporate button down shirts while flared pants will be perfect to match with your plaid tops.
- Add some bright colors and bold prints on your casual Fridays.
Bold prints and bright colors are one of the most fun trends we saw on the runways this spring, and they are also one of the easiest to pull off. Like Blair Eadie, opt for a rainbow striped top worn with a green skirt that will do the work for you. Or, simply wear a bright accent on your outfit like Veronica Popoiacu did, wearing a pink skirt with a nude button-down shirt and a brightly colored bag that made her outfit creative and chic. If you’re wearing a colorful dress, make it work-appropriate by pairing it with conservative accessories and a black blazer.
- Resort to the earthy shade of camel on your work outfits.
An earthy palette is great for looking chic on the spring season, especially if you’re not a fan of colors. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, simply opt for a camel skirt or a trench coat that will be versatile and stylish enough to dress up your office looks. Or, tame your eye-catching prints by topping your dress with a camel coat like Blair Eadie did, making her office looks professional yet stylish.
- Be spring-inspired on your shoes and sandals.
Though flip-flops, strappy sandals, gladiators, and Birkenstocks are all the rage this season, opt for spring-inspired footwear that’s still work-appropriate. A pair of nude pumps, chunky sandals, spring boots, or even mules may be great depending on your office dress code. Remember, before wearing those fashionable trends, keep your professionalism in mind so you’ll always look smart and poised in your office regardless of what trends you’re wearing.
