Cosmo.ph's Career Girl Fashion And Accessory Guide

From trendy blazers to cute printed blouses to feminine dresses, we've sorted out looks and accessories for your 9-to-5 that will show you mean business, without sacrificing chic.

Having to follow a dress code in the office doesn't mean you can't play with your personal style. In fact, there's no reason getting dressed for work shouldn't be as exciting as getting ready for a party! With the endless office fashion finds that are available in stores everywhere, working gals will go gaga mixing and matching safe basics with eye-catching statement pieces. Here are some work wear looks and tips that will help you turn heads as you walk down office aisles.

Statement blazers

Let your eye-catching blazer stand out over a hot, skinny pantsuit, basic colored jeans, or plain pencil skirt. Printed, solid-colored, or embellished jackets will do the trick of making you look fasyon and smart at the same time.

Dressy blouses

Your boyfriend's oversized button-down may look sexy on you, but we suggest you leave it in the bedroom--not the boardroom. Instead of wearing the classic white button-down shirt to the office, wear a more feminine printed blouse to pair with your khaki pants or colored jeans. But keep the print subdued--you don't want to grab everyone's attention away from their computer screens!

Pretty skirts

Subtly flaunt your legs in pencil skirts and above-the-knee A-line skirts. Match it with a silky top or a printed collared top to complete the look. And if you want to make your legs look a bit longer, just slip on those pumps!

Chic dresses

Dresses are the go-to outfit for chicks who have after-work plans. They're versatile, trendy, and they bring out the feminine in every girl (of course, we advise you to still keep them modest by making sure they're not skank-short!). Choose ones that are appropriate for work, such as shift dresses, shirtdresses, or wrap dresses. Wear a nice piece of jewelry for a more elegant touch.
