When it comes to dressing for the office, it’s easy for many of us to fall into a style rut, wearing the same clothing items over and over again. But there’s good news: your work wardrobe doesn’t have to be boring! Getting creative with your office wear can make the work week much more exciting.
If you’re looking to brighten up your closet with office-friendly outfits, look no further than your local Ohio Valley Goodwill store. There you can find fashion-forward styles for a fraction of the price of traditional retail stores. Keep reading for some of our favorite ways to give your work wardrobe a boost – with help from Goodwill, of course!
Bring on the color
Dressing for the office doesn’t mean wearing all black, all the time. One way to instantly freshen up your work wardrobe is by introducing some extra color into your closet! For example, pair a plain black blazer with a brightly colored blouse or tank. Pastels are always a hit for spring; look for light blues and pinks to liven up your winter wardrobe. For a more subtle way to incorporate color, try a belt or handbag in an accent color such as red or purple. It’s an easy way to add a little flair to an otherwise all-black outfit.
Look for a statement piece
Statement pieces are part of any well-balanced wardrobe. They energize your outfits and keep your workwear from looking drab. Statement pieces are any pieces that are bold, interesting, and memorable. Start by looking for patterns and prints that catch your eye. It could be anything – dresses, shoes, jackets, etc. Having a few special, stand-out items in your closet will help show off your one-of-a-kind style and make getting dressed for work in the morning more enjoyable.
Show off your personality with fun accessories
Put some fun into your work wardrobe with accessories like necklaces, earrings, scarves, or brooches. These smaller pieces will stand out without overpowering your entire outfit.
