From head to toe: Formal outfits

I am starting a new series called from head to toe: it is about different looks" classic,casual,formal...etc"
Every week I will show you how to achieve a certain look and some outfits that I created..
This week' look is the formal look,Many women works nowadays and being worker doesn't mean to be messy and unfashionable;In the contrary,when you dress good you look good you fell good and this positive feelings will affect your working mood and become more productive:
Formal look is all about being chic in a professional way

First office necessities:

· A dark (black, brown, charcoal, navy) pantsuit or skirtsuit.Wear it strictly as a suit in professional settings, mix up the suit pieces in business casual environments.

· "Soft" suit: a matching twinset (sleeveless or short sleeved sweater with a matching cardigan).

· A white shirt. Worn with smart black trousers and a simple pearl necklace it is goes smart casual. Paired with a black pantsuit it means strictly business.

· Black pants. You can never have too many of these. Creative types can branch out into longer cropped styles.

· Low-heeled pumps.Closed-toe styles can go anywhere. While you may be limited to dark colors to match your suits, you can experiment with materials and textures for interest: suede, exotic skins, polished leather.

· Structured handbag. A smooth, black or brown handbag with a structured frame gives you a pulled-together.

Second the colours:

Color plays a big part in professional image. Traditional career colors include red (aggressive), navy (trustworthy), gray (conservative) and black (chic). Most of these colors work well in pantsuits, skirts and shoes and mix back with softer feminine colors that are appropriate like ice blue, lilac..


So,For The outfits I created :

First outfit: Black pants and black jacket are a must,You just can add different colours of the blouses and has multiple outfit ..
Also a classic black bag and heels will help you to create another looks,you don't have to buy for each outfit a bag and heels.
Heels gives you that feminine look,The most important think to be comfortable.
As for accessories a simple ring will be enough, Remember not to over-accessorize.
Last for the scarf,matching a good material that will not make you sweat..No glittery scarf to work..
The second look: Black pant and a off-white blouse,The blouse is so feminine and also can match it with many outfits which make it a must..
The red bag just makes a better touch on the outfit,make its alive..
For the accessories,just in red-black and white necklace,make it simple ..
Third outfit: Floral skirt and black blouse..Floral skirts is always in for girls who wear hijab,but here is the tip:For work go for a darker colours because we want the look to be professional and brighten the look by the bag,accessories and the scarf here,I took the simplest colour in the skirt and put in all of them.Turquoise is so trendy this summer.
For the shoes,I chose a flat shoe with a low heels to make it chic.

Leave you with the pictures of her outfit and my created one.


This post will be about summer trends..
SO,let's start it :)
Number one :JUMPSUIT
When I knew that jumpsuit are so trendy for summer,I told myself no way I am going to wear this,it is not modest at all..But then I thought that I can wear them in modesty way by adding a cardigan or a denim jacket.. What do you think ??

Number two :DENIM JACKET

This trend is just for girls who wear hijab..You can put your jacket on a maxi dress or a jumpsuit..So you can wear whatever you want but in a super trendy way :)

The material pieces are so edgy but the trick is to wear them in feminine way like a sandal or bag or a feminine blouse..I really like these pieces..That is one proof that you can never predict fashion..

Number four :MAXI DRESS

In a previous post,I created three different look using one maxi dress..
Maxi dresses one of the most lovable wearable trends this summer because they are so comfortable, feminine and you can wear them in many different ways..
There is plain dresses and floral ones and all it needs a cardigan..

Number five: SHOES
I am not talking about normal shoes that we wear daily..I am talking about statement shoes,that will be the focus of your entire outfit..
And if you don't want a daily comfortable shoes,there are tons of design that are suitable to any style.

Number six: STUDDS
This a trendy detail that you will see it in a lot of pieces..
Just one advice:Just add to one or maximum two pieces,Don't over wear it..

Who doesn't love accessories?? Not me i just adore them..they are so essential..And this summer,they come in a unique gorgeous way..
It can be your mother old piece or you can get them from a vintage store..
If both of the ways are not available..Go to your favourite accessories shop and find pieces that your mother or your grand mother would wear them at your age :)

O,that is..I hope this post will be beneficial to you and help you to know what is in this summer..
Comment and tell me your favourite trend :)
