Floral Shirt - Office Look

Floral Shirt – Office Look

Office clothes don’t have to look boring. If you’ve had enough of plain black and blue and are looking for some variety and a little bit of sophistication in your everyday office look, I have it here for you.

Floral fabrics can add that extra beautiful feminine accent to your look, however you should choose the pattern carefully and pair the outfit wisely as it’s also very easy to cross the line and make your look rather childish instead of powerful. And that’s one thing we definitely don’t want to achieve, right?

How to wear floral patterns to work

I’ve been working in an office for the past 10 years and one thing I know for sure is that your outfit can significantly influence the way you feel and the way you perceive yourself. It can boost your self-confidence, add more prestige and power into your look and make you seem more in control. It’s a very powerful tool that us women should learn how to use to our advantage.

So if you’re not sure how to style your office outfit with a little bit of pattern, remember these key points:

  • never pair two garments with floral or any other patterns together, EVER! Choose only one and pair it with another garment in PLAIN colour.
  • choose the pattern carefully, make sure it doesn’t “shout” and it doesn’t have too many colours. It is YOU who people should notice and the outfit should only highlight your beauty and self-confidence.
  • remember about balance (up to three main colours at one time) and keep in mind that LESS IS MORE (and it’s not less clothes that I mean… )

If you like floral designs you’re going to love my summer dress! See my article about it HERE.

      Thank you Marta. They still had it in shops here in Dublin, so hopefully you can get it in the States too! I couldn’t find it online though… but I listed a few alternatives with nice floral patterns which I also liked, just in case. Good luck!

    This is such a wonderful professional look! Business attire is seriously important and sometimes finding ways to look professional and good can be difficult. The shirt and the shoes to this outfit look amazing!

      Thank you, Suzanne. It’s good to pair a patterned garment with a contrasting plain colour as it makes it stand out. I’m really glad that you liked my suggestion.

      Florals are amazing, you’re right! It took me a while before I convinced myself to wearing patterned clothes. Thank you for your comment, Kelsie.

    Anna ,
    Great information here. What do you think of men wearing floral shirts to the office?

      Thanks for your comment, Nick. In case of men in my opinion, classy look requires plain colours on shirts. I wouldn’t go into florals for an office look. Cheers 🙂
