Pleated skirt | For day | A pleated skirt looks great with a white shirt and a statement belt, but it also goes well with other options. Remember to opt for a knee length pleated skirt when going to a formal meeting. You can even experiment with jumpers in different hues.
For night | Pair it with a sexy crop top, a denim shirt or a bandeau top and you will surely make some heads turn. Have fun with the footwear; get some gladiator heels, the higher the better. Take cues from Gucci, Proenza Schouler, Victoria Beckham, and Bodice by Ruchika Sachdeva.
A black tuxedo blazer | For day |A classic tuxedo jacket can be incorporated in a number of formal looks. Be it a simple white shirt or black/ grey trousers with classic oxfords or just a simple pencil skirt with a top, a black jacket is a no brainer.
For night | Pair your black leggings and sharp heels with it or throw it over your sequinned dress, it’ll surely add character to your look. Black blazers are back this season. Get some ideas from Dior, McQueen and Rajesh Pratap Singh.
A collared white shirt | For day | Nothing to make a statement with but a collared white shirt is the classic office wear. Pair it with a black/grey trouser or a skirt.
For night | We suggest you add some zing to the formal look of the white shirt. Go for a statement belt or accessorise using a brooch. You can even wear the shirt under a dark hued sweater or a t-shirt. Pick an oversized white shirt and wear it like a dress with a belt and a pair of glamorous heels.
Classic cigarette pants | For day | Wear them with a blazer, shirt or even a jumper to look formal. You could even try experimenting with flat-soled footwear if the pants are an inch above the ankle.
For night | Pick up a sexy cropped top and accessorise with a chunky necklace. Also, take cues from Dior, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Emma Watson on how to style cigarette pants with a dress; a current hot trend.
