Happy Monday guys! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Today’s outfit is what I would call the perfect contemporary work look. I love that dressing for work today is a bit more liberal compared to the early 2000’s. Cigarette pants for example would have passed for a casual outfit but paired correctly, they can end up being a very ideal office look.
That said, here are 5 tips for wearing cigarette pants to work:
1. Opt for cigarette pants in neutral colors and classic styles. The office is not the best place to debut cigarette pants in bright colors, busy patterns, or unusual styles. Stick with neutral colors like black, navy, grey and khaki.
2. Wear a long-sleeve top/button-up shirt with your pants. A long-sleeve top/collared button-up adds some instant class that’s simple and suitable in the workplace. Consider wearing a grey or solid black pant with a solid light black or white top for a classic, clean look.
3. Match some neutral close-toed pumps to your pants. Heels are appropriate in the workplace, and they also look great with cigarette pants. Opt for black or nude close-toed pumps to take your work outfit up a notch. A smaller heel, such as a 2 in (5.1 cm) heel, is the most appropriate option for work.
4. Wear neutral ballet flats as a simple alternative. If flats are more your style, opt for a simple, solid-colored ballet flat to wear with your cigarette pants. Black or nude-colored flats will go with just about anything. Either wear a plain, embellishment-free pair, or go for a pair that has a polished, subtle detail, such as a small bow near the toe area
5. Go light on the jewelry. Wearing 1-2 smaller pieces of jewelry can dress up an outfit, but too much jewelry or jewelry that’s big and flashy can make the outfit more casual. Wear simple rings and earrings, and go for just 1 statement piece, such as a classic pendant necklace or a chic watch.
