Spice Up Your Work Attire Part 1











I spend majority of my work week in an office and I'm constantly thinking of different ways to have fun with my work wear. I find that my work outfits can get stale very quickly and a lot of my clothing is stylish for after-work hours and not necessarily work-appropriate. Lately, I've been shopping more with work in mind so that I have more opportunities to wear what I own on a more frequent basis. I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of pants that are work appropriate but still fun enough to dress up for the weekend. Over the next two posts, I will share two office appropriate work ideas that can easily be transitioned for weekend wear. 

When I found these pink accordion pleated pants (sounds hideous but super cute!), I knew I had to have them. Surprisingly they're really easy to style and a bonus is that they're super comfy - like sweat pants! I paired mine with a classic black sweater (which can also be worn off the shoulder...stay tuned for more styling options), maxi duster and some funky shoes to keep the ensemble fresh. 

Zaful has been a great store for my trendy dressing needs because they offer current season items for such a reasonable price. Remember to always check out measurements prior to purchasing as sizing may fit smaller than what you're used to. For more information on how to shop Zaful you can visit: http://www.zafulreviews.com

What does your typical work outfit look like? Could you see yourself styling something similar? 

Don't forget to check back Friday, where I share another fun and unique work-appropriate outfit.

1. Pants: c/o Zaful
2. Sweater: c/o Simplee Apparel
3. Vest: Similar
4. Shoes: Zara similar here, here and here

  1. Those pants are almost too cool for work. I love how you styled the culottes with the long coat. It looks professional but definitely not boring.

  13. Okay, so I've seen two sweaters I really really like in the last week and both of them were from Zaful. Do you have an honest opinion on them? I am nervous to buy from sites like that in case the quality is bad. For instance, with both the sweaters I was looking at they are one size fits all, which I find a little odd. I mean how can one sweater fit everyone? lol... Anyway, let me know your honest opinion! They do have some really cute stuff. I'm just wondering if the quality is a bit Forever 21-ish?

    This looks is really pretty and perfect for work. I too need to buy some more work appropriate pieces. Cannot wait for the second post!

    1. This sweater is actually from Simplee Apparel babe. The pants are from Zaful =) I actually did a review on Zaful a while back and gave my complete honest opinion. You have to be very careful with sizing as I find pieces to fit smaller. I would say that quality is comparable to Forever 21, especially for the price point. But I haven't had any issues with pilling like I do with most Forever 21 pieces. Hope this helps!

  14. I love that you spend most of your week in the office, yet your clothes are more appropriate for after work/weekends. Hahah spoken like a true fashionista! Anyways, adore the pink pleated pants. They're adorable and I love the contrast with the black, so stylish! Xx

  56. Dear Rina, it makes me happy we own nearly the same silver brogues you show here :) Fortunately, the dress code in the company I'm working is not that strict. Only in the context of important meetings, e. g. with suppliers, I have to wear more serious looks. During the other days I'm free to wear what I like, it is only necessary not to be nearly naked what I definitly try to avoid. The work look you show here is perfect and I would totally wear it! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration and enjoy the rest of the week <3
