Since last week was about rewearing Sarees with different blouses, I thought this week I could go with Sarees that are perhaps not always associated with office-wear.
I know there is a tendency for some to feel that office-wear should be more sober and muted; granted this is required in certain professions like law if you’re attending court. But otherwise, I don’t see why there needs to be a restriction about what colours and fabrics you can wear to work.
No one bats an eyelid at wild prints and colour combinations on the Malaysian baju kurung and headscarves, and I’ve certainly seen my fair share of neon dresses especially in creative industry workspaces.
Ohh and let’s not get started with men wearing mismatched suit jackets and trousers, who then look disdainfully at our blouse experiments 😂
You should be able to express your personality through what you wear because it has absolutely no bearing on your work output. That’s my take anyway.
And if people around you are distracted by what you’re wearing, trust me, you’re not the problem.
So this week is going to contain some Silks, some bold colours and perhaps some statement jewellery. And hopefully these are looks that will take you from day to night, with ease.
