Not so traditional office wear

Well, as I started my new work in February, I have been trying to make office wear a bit more fun. Most people perceive office clothes as a blouse and jacket and some kind of pants. Quite boring if you ask me. So I have been trying to personalize the “office look” to my liking and in order to show my personality through my clothing, which is very important to me. I see fashion as a fun thing, mix things up and think outside the box. What you are wearing tells quite a lot about yourself, but most importantly you really need to be comfortable in your clothes. I’m all about comfort! So here’s some outfits I compiled that I thought would be nice to wear to work;

This timeless pant suit from Banana Republic (Zalando.com) is a great piece to either dress up or dress down. I would match it with a plain white tee from Weekday and classic Old Skool Vans. If you need to dress it up, add a blouse or shirt underneath and a pair of patent leather shoes and your hair in a tight bun.

A more Parisian chic outfit for work, love this lambskin skirt from Lindex as it can be used for work or leisure time. The model is classic, short without being too short and easy to pair with a black, grey or white top, such as this black long sleeve from & Other Stores and long coat from Gina Tricot. And these shoes are everything, love the color blocking. Might have to place an order soon, also from & Other Stories. I think though that it is appropriate always to wear stockings to work.

Okay, these pants from H&M is everything. LOVE them. I bought them a month ago and I have used them since a bit too much. The grey color is perfect to pair with a light blue color, such as this shirt from Gant Rugger (the name is capri blue, ah!). Spice thing up with a pair of furry loafers from Boyy Copenhagen, which are not up everybody’s alley .

These striped pants from Banana Republic (Zalando.com) has been on my mind for a while, since they arrived to the showroom where I did my internship. The colors and fit of the pants is brilliant, and to dress them up, tuck in a nice twill denim shirt from Gant Rugger. I really like this leather jacket from Zara, even though it might not go as office wear, it goes as after work wear, hehe.

If you don’t want to dress up, but still office appropriate, a minimalist sleek look is the way to go. The dressed pants, college and t-shirt is from Weekday and shoes from Nike.

A bit more feminine look, dress from Gant Rugger, trench  and loafers from Zara and bag from Karl Lagerfeld (Zalando.com). I really like this dress a lot, such an easy garment to throw on when you have a clothing crisis.  And the bag, eye candy *heart eye emoji*.

Aaand a little trip back to the 70’s. I actually bough the suede jacket from Mango two weeks ago, can’t wait for the days to get warmer in order to use it. For a more experimental and fun office look, pair it with a striped shirt from Monki, pants from Weekday and shoes from & Other stories. Want to wear this look this spring!

The pants from H&M are so nice, had to use them twice. Here paired with a vest from H&M and t-shirt from Weekday. As you have probably noticed, bubblegum pink is THE color for autumn (Erhm Gucci AW16). Take a kick start with this lovely t-shirt, which btw looks nice with a little tan, and bring a little color to the overall grey scale in office clothing. The vest is super versatile, wear it with a white top underneath or for a more edgy look, wear it with a pair of leather pants.

Okay this might be more of a work-to-party look, haha, really liked the jumpsuit from Weekday. This silk bomber from Weekday satisfies my bomber-craving for this spring, not as masculine as the classic model. A fun bag to make the outfit more interesting, from Karl Lagerfeld (Zalando.com) and all black evil looking Birkenstocks.

Oh, another piece that I’ve been waiting for to hit the stores since the winter, this bright colored denim kimono from Lindex. Wear it with the belt or without, it is such a fun piece! Match it with a pair of blue jeans from Lindex and a pair of white Vans. This is quite casual but needed to show this kimono as it is so fab!

What do you think, is this office appropriate on a daily basis?

Asos is having a campaign of -20% on dresses. I rarely buy any dresses, as I don’t use them that often. Right now I’m looking for a black dress that I can use during the summer, both for leisure and work and then during winter paired with leather pants. Here are some of my favorites, all bellow 50€! I picked some that cover the spring/summer/autumn trends as well, some off shoulder, fringe, 70’s, cut out and wrap dresses. Happy shopping! 🙂

Did you guys watch the live feed from H&M Studio Collections fashion show yesterday? I totally forgot about it last night, but thank god for Style.com. I have really liked H&M’s premium collections, well first of all they are affordable but also so wearable. This year it was a obvious mix of moon landing and after ski chic. It is nice to see that so many of springs trends stick until autumn, and the collection included 70’s vibes and prints, culottes, material mixes, long knits, slits, whole white outfits, burgundy, earthy tones of brown and green, polos and the pairing of slacks with a long top. The jackets are fab, I could own the lot. My absolute favorite look is the long burgundy jacket with shiny burgundy pants. Good job H&M, quite a show!

Here’s the whole show! Enjoy!

Yass, new arrivals to H&M! I love this specific part of the Trend collection, as it is more subtle, clean and minimalistic from the rest of the 70’s inspired collection. I did look at the jackets (the brown texture one, yum!) in the store on Monday, the shirt in the 6th picture is on everybody’s blogs atm. I do love the color scale and choices of fabrics for this collection, the ribbed dresses are really nice and versatile. The white dress channels the Céline SS15 feeling as well.  But there’s this one piece I must buy from this collection and that is this dress:

Well, first of all I’m not the biggest fan of bright colors and patterns, but dang I fell for this dress when I saw Sanna Tranlöv wearing it in January, I thought it was Marni’s but fortunately it is a cheaper version. I have to try it on first ofcourse, might be that I don’t feel comfortable in the color.

Baum und Pferdgarten AW15

One of my favorite ready-to-wear collections from Copenhagen Fashion Week was once again Baum und Pferdgarten. Baum und Pferdgarten had a really strong spring collection, but gosh this collection is fabulous. Material mix, sporty references, Isabel Marant-ish vibes, lace, my favorite colors ( black, navy, powder, beige and burgundy) and the amazing shoes. I love love love love this collection, what is your favorite look?

Bohemian chic

So, the Chloé campaign and SS15 show got all crazy about this bohemian chic style. Flowy dresses, tunics, sandals, beach hair and a nice 70’s vibe (which will follow us until next autumn), I want to be a Chloé girl this summer! The style is yet laid back and comfortable, but still flirty and girly with the maxi dresses and lace details.

For a more affordable option, check out Free People! I’ve been eyeing Free Peoples websites for a while now, and oh well, I could buy the whole lot. As I’m not the biggest fan of maxi dresses ( looks good on others, not me) I love the shorter A-lined dresses. And one color to stock up on this spring is rust, which was much seen during the AW15 shows. Otherwise you should also check out Zara as some really nice pieces will start to drop in the stores during the next weeks!
