Trends may change but fashion is timeless. It is imperative to own certain essentials to create an awesome wardrobe for every occasion. Here are some fashion trends.

When it comes to work-wear/office wardrobe, men often feel restricted due to difficulties in choosing the right ensemble. The right outfit for the office can help you leverage confidence, and a mismatch might make you feel low. Office wear calls for subtle outfits and styling plays an important part.

Neelanjan Sil, Head of Design, Blackberrys Casuale, shares basic must-haves, to break down the monotony of regular work wear and lift up your spirits as well as style quotient.

Light Blue Shirt: Blue is the perennial colour that brings positivity and vibrancy and is a must-have for work. Ditch the usual black and white shirts, and give your Monday blues a miss with a contemporary style by pairing a linen blue shirt under a blazer and khaki colour cotton pants.

Printed Khakis: Giving new wings to your stylish personality, the travel-friendly trousers with water/soil/dust-resistant and super stretch will play a pivotal role. Experiment with a dobby shirt and tonal printed khakis that will give the vibrant look that matches your spirit. You can further spice up your Tuesday office look by pairing a light-shaded pastel shirt with basic navy/ khaki cotton trousers.

Saree is one of the most versatile and elegant garments in the world. Women in India have worn this nine yards of wonder for many centuries belonging to different cultures and across the regions. And not before long, it used to be the most common attire for daily wear for women across ages in our country.

The versatility of the sari is such that it can even be worn at business conferences, workplace and office parties. Yes the trend of wearing or choosing to wear a saree as formal work wear is on the rise . It not only sets you apart from others but also gives you an edge over other dresses and maxies, says Delhi-based designer Anuradhha Ramam.

“It’s power dressing. It oozes confidence and power. In fact for many women with traditional and conservative tastes, formal saris are their preferred clothes for the offices, hotels and other corporate sectors. While pant suits and “churidar-kurtis” may be favored among young professionals in today’s corporate India, the “sari” still is the classic business attire. You can beautifully drape the saree and make a perfect style statement in elegance, style and confidence, she adds.

Saree, a practical as well as fashionable work-wear option

As a designer I think that saree is practical, it’s easy to wear and is graceful and so fashionable. Women in the 1980’s and 90’s mostly wore sarees at the workplace due to cultural and social reasons but today’s generation looks beyond these factors. A well draped saree can make a statement in elegance, style and confidence for women in the workplace.

In my journey of 15 years in this industry, I have styled my sarees with boots and other accessories like silver jewellery which makes it a fusion wear and fashionable work-wear option for all the confident working women, Ramam says.
