How to Co-ordinate Colours for Work

In the early hours of the day, when you’re in race with the clock, creating a colour combination for your western office wear becomes a more difficult task than it seems to be at any other given point. Toning down a bright shade or letting the pastel glow, all ends up at the bottom of the wardrobe, with neutrals dominating the equation for ladies workwear options.

How to Co-ordinate Colours

It’s time to pair up our clothes according to the mood for the day and the tasks we want to accomplish for the day. Create a formals look that doesn’t just showcase your personality but also heightens your confidence:


1. A Bold Office Look:

  • Printed Orange Silk TopGeorgette Red A-line Flared Dress
                                       Orange Floral Printed Silk Shirt                                                                                    Georgette Red A-line Flared Dress

    Define your bold look with your favourite shades or create a contrast that you haven’t tried earlier with your business formals. A bold contrast of brightly coloured tones would make you stand out of the crowd, when fashioned in the right balance. You can pair up a printed orange top with a navy blue skirt or a red shirt with a deep green pair of pants to make a statement. If you prefer formal dresses, you can choose to accessorize with a contrasting colour pair of shoes, handbag or earrings that would also create a colour block, focusing on your highlighted features.

    2. A Neutral Look:

    Black Georgette Shirt with PipingSteel Grey Giza Cotton Shirt

                                           Black Georgette Shirt with Piping                                                                 Steel Grey Giza Cotton Shirt

    Play it safe, yet stand out of the crowd by creating a look out of the blacks, whites and browns. A classic combination of colours in the category of officewear for women, you can pair these up in any order and portray an image that never goes out of style. You can create a mix of black trousers, black shirt with a brown blazer or a combination of black trousers, a white button down and a pair of brown shoes, that would work from a business meeting to an evening with friends. Confused in the morning? Just create a timeless formals combination and flaunt your style.


    3. A Monochrome Look:

  • Black Georgette Bow Tie Shirt  Blue Cotton Silk Shift Dress

                                  Black Georgette Bow Tie Shirt                                                                                 Blue Cotton Silk Shift Dress

    Creating an ensemble entirely made of one colour, falls amongst the latest trends in the fashion industry. Although, it doesn’t stand necessary to use one shade for the attire. Pick out different shades of a single colour, for example, blue - slate blue - navy, and pair them up with confidence for your western formal wear. You can choose to wear a printed blue formal top with a pair of navy blue trousers and slate blue shoes to complete the look. An impactful combination, these smart formals will definitely score you some style points.


    Creating a combination of colour and neutrals with stripes and plains has been our go-to office wear for the longest of time. Creating a change in your work wardrobe and adding some feminine prints and silhouettes, experiment with printed dresses, linen shirts, georgette tops, lace tops and even tailored shirts that not only dress you up, but also does so by showcasing your personal style with statement fashion trends.
