Chic Office Wear With Statement Pieces — And More Inspirations!


It’s Monday again! Hope everyone had a great start to the week!

The outfit featured today is what I consider a chic style suitable for the office if you stay in a country with a colder climate. As many of us work at least five days a week, it may get somewhat challenging to find work wear that is not boring yet office-appropriate at the same time. To introduce some creativity to an outfit, what always work for me is to include a couple of statement pieces to the overall aesthetics. This can be in the form of an accessory (e.g. jewelry), an apparel with a unique shape (e.g. asymmetrical skirt) or an outstanding printed pattern, such as the animal print jacket I wore in these pictures taken in Paris.

  1. I agree that it is not easy to find working outfit which always look chic yet professional. Usually I tend to wear dress (more lke etui dress) at work. From time to time I will use blouse and skirt or trousers. Never tried animal print jacket, but looks fun!



  2. Thanks for the tips! You so very chic indeed. Is it still that cold where you live? It’s getting warm here in the states (not complaining tho). Enjoy the rest of your week!
