Tresmode Women’s Peepump-3 Pumps

Kielz Women’s Pumps

Pumps are your best bet at the office especially the nude ones that make a subtle statement about your fashion sense bang on the first day. Though you can experiment with a red, white or black occasionally, nude pumps are the classics that can almost never go wrong.

Peep toes or fashionable stilettoes are a big no-no, so simply stick to the ones with closed toe. They look stylish yet elegant with balanced attire.

Pencil Skirts

FOREVER NEW Rib Pencil Skirt

Femella Animal Print Women’s Pencil Skirt

It’s not your first day at the college or your first date, so stay away from those fancy flowing skirts. Pencil skirts or Bodycon Skirts are the ideal outfits for your office, and by sporting them at the first day at your work you already win half the war!

Though one can play with solid colors (not patterns or prints) like, a royal blue or fuchsia if office allows and pair them with separates in contrast colors, it is advisable to stick to neutral colors like, nude or gray shades paired with white or off-white sophisticated blouses at the first day. Keep the fun for later, what say?

Power Suit

Allen Solly Black Blazer

A power suit can never go wrong in a professional environment. Throw a blazer on a knee length pencil skirt, or straight cut trouser in pin stripes with the quintessential white blouse beneath or add class with black stockings the power dressing is made to impress.

For the first day we advise you stick to neutral shades such as, black, gray or cream and set the ball rolling in your favor.

Nothing like wearing fashionable trousers and still gain that respect. Wide-legged trousers let you chive just that with the right cut and pattern. It’s extremely important to make sure that you wear well-tailored stuff, especially the pants which are not to cling to your buttocks.

Remember that you are at the first day of your work and you are there to create a professional impression that should call for honor and grace.

Muted Makeup

WOMEN MAKE-UP KIT

Once again remind yourself of the fact that you should leave behind your street chic style back when you are heading for the office, especially on the first day! But that does not mean that you should wear no makeup, but it should be rather subdued. Go for a nude makeup, just some sunscreen, base and pressed powder.

For the eyes stick to the basic black with no smudged look, a hint of mascara (not essential), and some tinted lip balm or a lipstick in shades of nude. Stay away from bright colors if you are really serious about creating an impression.

Statement Jewelry

7 fashion tips to rock your first day at work :Statement Jewelry

Swan Multi-strand Necklace for Women (Gold) (AB-NL-M0516)

Imli Street Silver Copper Necklace

Keep your entire look simple with just one piece of statement jewelry instead of wearing them all. We sure understand that you have all those junk pieces to show off, but just one is good enough for your office.

For a stronger statement just select a chic yet classy neckpiece with your business casual and you are all set to rock your first day.

Balance Colors

7 fashion tips to rock your first day at work :Balance Colors

Balance Colors

SVT ADA Collection Black Printed Bodycon Dress

Red Cotton Peplum Dress

Learn to mix and match the right color before even you step out for your first day at work, as one wrong step can spoil your entire effort. If you are wearing separates, DO NOT wear them in same colors or two bright or two muted colors.

Balance the colors with one muted and one bright and with the right shades. Do some research on the internet if you are still unsure about which colors would best match with each other, before you end up matching a pink with a red! When in doubt, stick to the basics with neutral shades.

The news of Priyanka Chopra as one of the presenters at the Oscars 2016 spread like a wildfire. The media and the fashion community were abuzz with the announcement and they all went digging the fashion designer who would doll up our Piggy Chops for the Red Carpet.

How To Rock the Monochrome Fashion?

The moment we think that the monochrome mania is a passé, a new trend sneaks in to rock the fashion world! Are you struggling to get the right look with monochrome? We surely understand that dilemma, since it’s not just about sporting the black and white combo but wearing the right cut with the right accessory and carrying it with the right attitude does the magic. So for all those pretty butterflies we show you how to rock the monochrome fashion..

  1. Suit Up

Want to brighten up that otherwise mundane day at office? Then do it in style with the super chic look by Sophie, follow the dazzling glamorized look by Kim Kardashian with matching accessories or simply play it down like the hot Angelina Jolie.

Suit Up

  1. All Black

Get the all black Michael Kors look by Tanaaz Bhatia, with those leather skinnies and chic sandals in frills. Lili Allen does it equally well exuding that oomph factor looking super elegant in that pencil skirt and plunging neckline with a matching pair of cool printed boots. You can never go wrong with the leather and boots look like Amrita Arora.

All Black11

  1. Prints

When in two minds with prints wear it like Lea Michele in a comfy playsuit (sans the accessories) or take a cue from Kajol who’s flaunting it with minimal accessories, sticking to just a statement belt and a wristlet.

Prints

  1. Shorts

Amrita Arora sports the casual yet natty look with aplomb. Rachael and Shraddha Kapoor does it well too and look cute and super chic at the same time.

Shorts22

  1. Polka Dots

Wearing polka dots can be a bit tricky in monochrome unless you do it like the talented Kangana or the sophisticated look by Amy Adams in a halter gown. When in doubt look cool with hybrid prints like SJP.

Polka Dots 33

  1. Jumpsuits

The jumpsuit trend takes a new twist with wild prints on cotton or the hip combo..

Jumpsuit44

  1. Pencil Skirts

Show your curves with the pencil skirts in the right mash up like Mandira or Kareena, in the perfect contours and fab paneling.

Jumpsuit44

  1. Dress

Dress it up like Sarah Jessica Parker teaming a short dress with a jacket, with the superb bow silk dress like Kirsten or flaunt those silhouettes like Sonam or Aishwarya.

Dress

  1. Pants

Whether in the traditional black and white, solid single colors, in a contrast or with a tuxedo on, the pants are the perennial fashion wear for all.

Pants

  1. Frocks

Whether in horizontal stripes, silk or in checks the frock trend is timeless and just so cute.
