Dressing for work can at times be a little bit of a drag. You need to look smart, yet you also want to be on trend and comfortable.
Even if you wear a business suit every day, there are plenty of ways you can quickly and easily dress up your look to make it much more fun and interesting.
We have put together this guide to show you which workwear pieces you need to own to ensure you always look professional, but trendy at the same time.
Keep reading to find out more.
1. Bright Cardigan
A really easy way to easily jazz up your business wear look is to add a bright coloured cardigan.
Cardigans are always really smart and slightly dressy.
This piece will ensure you still look super professional.
Yellow is a key trend for 2017, so this might be a good option to go for.
Alternatively, you could think about red, cobalt blue, or perhaps an emerald green.
Go for a cropped version for a super flattering look.
2. Add Statement Shoes
BOM DIAAAAAA!!! Quarta feira geladinha e look "polêmico" pra aquecer nossos corações e essa timeline kkkk . . Pra não "chocar" tanto, apostei no all black pra constrastar com a bota vermelha ❤️❤️. . Blusa Renner, colete sem marca do centro de Porto Alegre, pantacourt Brenda Lee (site passarela), bolsa C&A e bota sem marca (comprada no enjoei). . Só posso dizer que amei 😍😍.

Whether you go for some red boots like Minspira above, or with a statement heel, shoes are a great way to quickly accessorize your look.
You could go for some gorgeous pink ankle strap heels or simply some red-soled Louboutins.
Teamed with a smart business dress or suit, these shoes will really elevate your outfit from drab to modish in seconds.
3. Accessorize With Glasses
Add some glamorous sunglasses or glasses to instantly add some chic to your workwear look.
Glasses make you look like you mean business, whilst sunglasses are an essential for commuting to and from the office.
How about the Porsche Design P8478?
These gorgeous sunnies come in seven other stunning colours and feature a classic aviator design.
And once you are sat at your desk, how about the Hallmark TR1816?
These fashion forward specs feature minimal metal frames and a gorgeous tortoise shell design on the top.
4. Mix & Match
Print on print for today!❤ Boldly going ahead with oriental-print ruffle-neck cropped top(tucked in) with monochrome floral print skirt✨When I choose to wear clashing prints, I keep my heels nude. You don't want your heels to compete with a 'busy' outfit😊 Top from @monki (One Utama) Pencil skirt from @asos Satin nude mule heels from Khan (Isetan, The Gardens Mid Valley) . . . . #ootd #floral #orientalprint #monki #asos #ruffledneck #satinheels #muleheels #nudemules #printonprint #clashingprints #chicworkchic #stylesifu #styling101 #whatiworetoday #workwear #wiwt
This is quite a daring look, but if you are confident enough to pull it off you will be the most fashionable lady in the office.
Mix and match prints are really in fashion this season, and will instantly give you some style kudos.
Try mixing a polka dot shirt with a floral skirt for example.
Or some geometric print trousers with a striped top.
This isn’t a look which would be acceptable in all offices, so make sure think about this first before you invest.
5. High Waisted Trousers
High waisted trousers are super flattering yet also incredibly smart.
You could stick with a black pair for an understated chic look, or go for something brighter such as these gorgeous blue trousers Marie is wearing here.
Keep the look flattering by teaming with some heels and by tucking your shirt into the trousers.
Cinch your waist in even more by wearing a chunky statement belt.
