It looks like the ever-changing trend in fashion has caught on with the corporate world too. No more do they wear the white, black, brown or gray plainly, a little stash of color is added to give the attire a trendy feel. However, in dressing to keep trendy make sure you do not get caught by the corporate fashion police. Not all outfits no matter how trendy or stylish, are not acceptable in the corporate world. Here are a few tips on how to add style to your corporate wear without ‘soiling’ it.

1. Do not dress too colorful to work

Unless you work at a fashion house where all manner of craziness may be accepted, do not combine too many bright clothes all in the name of keeping trendy. For instance orange and pink can be combined in clothes now but it is a no-no for work. I don’t think anyone will take you serious no matter how amazing the outfit may look. Rather, try combining with black or brown or less suggestive to keep it corporate yet trendy.

2. Over-“Accessorization”

2014 has come with its own accessories mostly shiny but know which ones to wear to work. Imagine how you would feel if everyone has to put on sunglasses before they speak to you because you look too shiny? At the work place, you would want your work to stand out not your jewelry.  Some jewelries that look bland look but trendy, and very appropriate for the office.

3. Leave out the “Rihanna” Hair-dos

I call it “razor to the side” that is the hairstyle Rihanna is rocking this year. I have also seen a Deborah Vanessa wearing it. But this kind of hairstyle is okay for people in the entertainment industry but not in the corporate world. Unless there is a competition for the craziest hairstyle, leave out of the office for now.

4. Wear Sensible shoes

By sensible I mean shoes that will make feel comfortable and smart. Not the ones that make you feel like you walking on coals or rheumatism had a go at your knee. I would recommend plumps; they comfortable shoes that come in all shapes and sizes and just what you need to look the part as a corporate person.

With these tips I hope you can work out a whole new corporate you that rocks!
