Are you quite giddy to be back and working in the office? Since many companies are starting to mandate people back in the office again, choosing which outfit to wear can be dreadful, especially if you’re not prepared.
Instead of feeling as if it’s a major disadvantage to go to the office, and be forced to wear dull office clothing, why don’t you look at the light at the end of the tunnel? Dressing up daily can make preparing to go to work fun with these vintage and feminine outfit ideas:
Monday: Sleek and Sophisticated
Monday is all about making a wonderful impression. Wear a sleek and sophisticated dress from ModCloth that has a satin and silk fabric for a smooth-flowing dress. The design, stitching, and silhouette are all so well-made.
It has a natural leafy color that`s close to a lowly saturated pastel green. It has a timeless and classic design that no matter the season, you can wear to both business casual and formal events.
Everything about this dress is perfect, from its square-neckline, below-the-knee length, and thin satin straps, I can`t help but fall in love with it.
For corporate wear, you can add a cropped blazer for a sleek look, and wear open-toe stilettos or kitten heels.
Tuesday: Navy Beauty
This Black and White vintage midi dress is very similar to a sailor`s uniform. This dress would suit any body type with its deep V-Neckline, fit and flare bodice, and long-sleeves. You can wear it with matching buttoned heels for a cohesive and cute outfit.
With its beautiful fabric and design, you`ll surely look unique and lovable whether you`re wearing it in the office, or in the date. It`s one of those dresses that would make heads turn with its beauty.
To match the stunning vintage look, you can have your hair in an updo, or create big curls with a half up and half down hairstyle. Put on a gorgeous red lipstick, and you`re off to make a statement wherever you go.
The retro vibe this look gives can make you look unique. If you wear a navy blue or black cabbie hat, you might just draw the eyes of the people around you towards your outfit.
Wednesday: Ladylike in Blue
Soft and sweet are the words that would describe this lavender blue 1950s dress. Whether you`re in a business meeting, or simply heading to a friend`s birthday party, you can`t go wrong with this ladylike dress. It has a gorgeous silhouette that would complement both petite and plus-size bodies. It features an almost straight skirt that would be beneficial for those with apple or pear-shaped bodies.
A pair of beige woven buckle slingback heeled pumps would complement a simple yet gorgeous dress. A set of pearl jewelry and a silver watch would make this outfit a prim and pretty one.
Much similar to what a 1950`s housewife would wear; this look gives off a motherly and mature vibe. For a youthful look, you can put your hair in a ponytail and curl the ends for a cute touch.
Thursday: Luxurious in Lace
Delight in the intricacies of a lace midi dress. The halter neck adds sophistication to an already stunning dress. It also has crochet details that adds a feminine touch to the dress. Add a well-tailored double-breasted blazer, and you`ll have an outfit worthy of wearing.
You may also wear this to a formal event, and instead of a blazer, you may put on a shawl or wear the dress as is. Then, carry a silver clutch, and wear a pair of white and gold heels. Accessorize with pearl or gold statement earrings to draw attention to your face since the dress itself is very eye-catching.
This outfit is one you would wear to an important event. If you`re the boss of your company, a business opening day, or a contract signing event would be the best times to wear this. Feminine, sexy and confident are the words you`ll convey through this dress.
Friday: Fancy and Feminine
Who says you have to be ostentatious to look fancy? A beautiful square neckline and luscious fabric make up this long dress. Wear it with a pair of cream kitten heels or pointy shoes, gold jewelry, and a white purse, you`ll look heavenly.
Quite similar to Korean fashion, this outfit is versatile as you can wear it to any event. Wear your hair down with a few loose curls at the bottom, and apply light make-up to highlight your natural beauty, this would also be the perfect date outfit.
If you want to make it look more casual, you can opt for a pair of beige or white strappy sandals, and put your hair up in a casual updo with hair pieces falling on the sides of your face. This would make it less formal and make you look more approachable.
This look screams expensive yet it`s not. You don`t have to spend so much money to achieve a well-dressed outfit. Like this Friday`s look, it has a monochromatic theme that you can apply with all your other outfits to look cohesive.
It`s time for women to wear clothing that makes them feel beautiful, empowered, and confident without worrying about what their peers would think. As long as you`re not wearing anything inappropriate in a formal and professional setting, these feminine and vintage outfits would help you revisit your inner femininity even in the workplace.
These looks are dainty and very much appropriate for corporate wear. Though quite unusual from the normal suit and slacks look, this is one way to dress with a hint of personal touch!
