It can be really depressing when you have an office job and need to decide what to wear to work on a Monday, especially in a job that requires you to wear ‘formal’ clothes. That doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, or that you must wear one of those (in my opinion) hideous ‘women’s suits’. Dress simply in a black dress, tights and oxfords. Add simple jewellery that doesn’t make too much of a statement. Add a great looking leather bag. The final touch for a bit of colour and classic style is a scarf that goes well with your bag, and well manicured nails. Dressing well is going to make you feel great about having to start the work week after a fabulous weekend.
