We all share a love-hate relationship with our work because of many reasons, but if you ask us this could stem from the fact that we love to hate it. We hate the fact that work has become such an integral part of our lives with it fulfilling our needs from the income we get from it and also validating our successes by providing the means to measure so many milestones in our lives. We love our work for more or less the same reasons plus the fact that it can (if we are lucky) be the thing that we love to do. However, as you may have noticed we often do digress from the main topic but bringing it back to focus – let us talk about work attire. And not just work attire but the kind that can casually be put together at the last minute.

Before we go ahead, we ask you one thing – do you follow formulas or recipes? If yes, you will go what we are going to do here. We are going to give you the ingredients for a recipe, which will allow you to put together last minute casual work outfit. But do note that while we give you the ingredients that you need and what are the possibilities, the end result will be as per your interpretation.
Here is what you will require:
Flat shoes: A casual work outfit would not be complete without the addition of a flat pair of shoes. This shoe can be a bit on the frivolous side but not too much. In case you are confused, then think of a comfortable pair of shoes that will work with a pair of jeans as well as a pair of formal pants.
The shirt: The necessary feature of this shirt that you will need for such quick smart and casual outfit for work would include a simple shirt in lighter shades. It can be striped or checked but subtly so and by no means one of those shirts that is loud in color or design. Again this shirt should not look out of place with jeans (though it would be a subdued outfit) and formal trousers.
Sweater: This, can be something that is on the brighter side because the rest of the outfit is going to be subtle any way. But do ensure that the sweater is not too cutesy or floppy. Also ensure that it does not have a frivolous design on it like a cartoon or goofy design on it.
The skirt or pants: Since we have talked about smart and casual for work, do ensure that you have a proper style of skirt or pants that will work with your outfit. If possible stick to colors like black, dark blue or brown.
The jacket or blazer: A jacket will complete the outfit and this has to be of the smart kind even if it is on the casual side. This will ensure a smart and complete look to the various elements of the ensemble.
There you go – a simple recipe that can be personalized to reflect your personal style.
