How To Make Fashion Trends Work At Work

April 24, 2013

It’s not always easy to dress fashionable at work, is it?

You’re right! It certainly can be a challenge, especially when it comes to translating popular trends into your everyday work wear. With your days already jam packed with non-stop professional and personal demands, the last thing you want to fret over is what to wear. But! You still want to have fun with your style and visually convey your career ambitions.

That’s why I’ve expanded further on my previous list of hot spring trends for you and put together a collection, guaranteed to give you loads of fashion inspiration!

Each spring trend is categorized for different work environments. I call it the Three C’s: Conservative, Creative and Casual. (Yes, you’ve seen this before with my nail polish guide, but for this demonstration I switched cocktail to casual.)

Take note, these general dress codes vary per workplace and professional field. For example, your office’s business casual dress code may be an everyday affair allowing you to wear denim and open-toed shoes to your hearts content. Or your company’s definition of casual solely rests on Casual Friday’s, but still requires a denim free and closed-toe shoe policy. Use your best judgment and tweak these fashionable trends as necessary.

Look no further; here are tons of ideas for you to start incorporating more of your favorite spring trends into your work wardrobe today:
