1. Play with separates
We are having a major crush over this dress-and-pants combo that digital marketing expert Jeneen has on. To make it work for you, look for a dress with a versatile print, and pair it with a block-coloured pair of pants in a complimentary shade.
2. Try combining different textures
It may look like a vest over a blouse, but this mixed-textures dress from LIE that Carrie Wong has on is also the perfect way to rejig your office outfit. A bright red bag goes with the bright colour scheme, whilst keeping it neutral.
3. Pair with statement earrings
Statement earrings don’t have to be all about the bling. Here, Paige Chua demonstrates how a pair of minimalist drop earrings can achieve that effect as well.
4. Toughen up with boots
Yes, influencer Yoyo Cao’s outfit here may be a little unorthodox for work, but you can take what you need from it. Our key focus is how her boots automatically amps up the style factor.
While wearing knee-high boots may not work in Singapore, you can always zip into a pair of ankle boots to give your plain dress an edginess.
5. Sometimes, all it takes is a punchy colour
Ah Jie’s look here may be simple, but it certainly packs all the punch that she needs. With the statement draping details on the front, it’s dramatic enough that you don’t need to over-accessorise. Just add black pumps and call it a day!
6. Add a little bit of flair
You’re still you, even when you’re in your work outfit, so don’t feel like you need to stifle your fun side! A cute accessory — like Jeanette Aw’s quirky bag strap — can dress up your look quickly.
7. Sneaky business!
Work dresses can sometimes feel stiff and boring, so throw in a sneaker to keep it youthful. Felicia Chin demonstrates the style power of combining a quirky dress with a pair of white Nikes.
8. Belt it in
Just like how actress Tong Bing Yu wears it, you can use a wide belt as a statement accessory in your look. To keep it suitable for the office, make sure your belt isn’t overly busy, and stick to plainer colours instead.
