TABLE OF CONTENTS
1. TAILORED POWER SUIT
When we think of work wear, the first thing that comes to mind is a power suit!
Channel that boss babe energy by investing in a classic tailored blazer with matching trousers. You can choose a silhouette that suits your frame and style by opting for an oversized or fitted blazer with a flared, bootcut, straight, or tapered trouser design.
SAPPHIRE West has an amazing black power suit in stock, as well as a powder blue option in the same design and you can shop whichever one goes with your vibe. The suit can be worn together to make a formal statement or you can style the blazer with jeans for a more casual corporate look!
Regardless of how you choose to style it, a power suit is at the top our work wear wish list!
2. SOLID SUIT DESIGN
If you are someone who prefers eastern over western wear, then a solid suit design for work is definitely a must!
A non-fail option is a solid black or white suit design (or a more colourful hue if you like being more vibrant) that can be dressed up or dressed down; dress it up with a bold lipstick, shimmery eye makeup, fancy dupatta design, and statement jewelry, or dress it down by wearing it casually with flat shoes and minimal jewelry for a chic daily look.
You can even create a fusion twist to your look by pairing the solid suit design with a blazer, or an embellished jacket to create an outfit that is uniquely yours!
3. WHITE DRESS SHIRT
Another worthwhile work basic to invest in is the classic white button down!
This chic piece can be styled in numerous ways: with your blazer, denim, a skirt, or a tailored trouser design and instantly elevates your look by giving it a more polished and professional appearance.
SAPPHIRE West has a range of white button down shirts available and you can choose any of the design or silhouette that best suits your personal style and your work environment.
4. BASIC TROUSER DESIGN
Whether you are into eastern or western wear, a basic trouser design is a necessity!
Invest in well-fitted trouser design in a solid colour that suits your body type. If you are more into kameez and kurta designs, opt for cambric culottes, straight trousers, or cigarette pants, but if you prefer western wear, get your hands on a neutral coloured, structured trouser design in a tapered or wide leg silhouette to wear with all your formal shirts and blouses to make the most of your work wear looks.
5. STRUCTURED DENIM
While jeggings and skinny jeans may not be a part of office-friendly attire, more structured denim for women are a good semi-formal option to shop for, especially for casual Fridays at work!
When shopping for work appropriate denim for women, opt for wide leg jeans, slim fit denim, straight denim, or culottes jeans since they give a cleaner look to the entire ensemble.
Dress it up with a red lipstick, heeled shoes, and a button down shirt under your blazer to look effortlessly chic all day long!
6. ELEVATED DRESS DESIGN
For work events, dinners, and lunches, an elevated dress design is an absolute essential!
If you prefer to go down the eastern wear route, style an embroidered silk, chiffon, or lawn dress design with a statement dupatta design. However, if your go-to is western wear, don a printed silk western dress, or a solid embroidered western dress with some dangly earrings, a classy pair of heeled shoes, and a purse to match!
