It is easy to be too formal in business attire. There are only so many pantsuits and skirt sets that a person can wear without feeling bloated. Modern skirts and slouchy pants have made tailored sets more fashionable. There are many creative ways to spice up your look while still looking polished.

Leather versions instantly make trousers, button-downs and blazers look fresher, as well as more bold, when you rethink your approach. You can also pair timeless cotton or wool versions of your favorite pieces with modern heroes such as asymmetric skirts and longline shorts. Fashion-forward pieces such as a boldly printed shirtdress or puff-sleeve blouse can make a bold statement while still displaying sophistication. There are also those pieces that you reach for on duty, but don’t consider in the office. These include a utilitarian-inspired jumpsuit or a fashionable sweater vest that you can layer with smart staples.
