The workplace Diva

Fashion, sponsored post, work wear
When I was working in the corporate sector, my mornings usually started with staring at my wardrobe for a good ten minutes and wondering if I could just walk in to office wearing a leather pant, a flow-y white top and get away with it. When you dress up everyday, you might as well make it interesting right? That’s always been my mantra and my motivation to dress up everyday. Work place dressing up is a bit tricky especially when you work in a formal environment that requires you to stick to formals. That being said, you don’t need to stop being a workplace Diva. Check out the following options for your most essential workplace item – laptop bags!


For the professional Diva

Black is the color of elegance, power and sophistication. It would without doubt be the first choice for a professional look. A soft textured (faux) leather bag with plenty of space inside for your laptop and all your essentials. Pair this with a formal pantsuit for a polished look!

 

For the artsy Diva

If your work environment is the creative and chaotic type, like a media company or an advertising agency, then show-off your personality with something unique and trendy. Bold colors, graphics, silly quotes – it could be anything that describes your personality, or your workspace. Since your dressing too would veer more towards business casuals, you can get away with almost anything here!

For the casual Diva
 
This unisex laptop bag keeps it casual yet professional. Whether you are meeting with clients over a cup of coffee, or working as a freelancer with no fixed office space or timings, this tan brown leather laptop bag is your friend. You can pair it with a simple blue jeans and a crisp white shirt for a classy look!

 For the girly Diva

Simple, pink and cute. This pink canvas laptop bag is perfect for the girly girl. Whether you team it with western formals, traditional wear or casuals, this is one bag that would go with them all!

Workwear in India has gone through a massive makeover and the options you have now, as compared to a few years back, are innumerable. There was a time, about five years back when I used to struggle to find well fitted formal clothing. Maybe I din’t know where to look or maybe it was my thin body shape, but they were all so ill-fitting and the shirts looked like they were thrown on a hanger. The first time that I found completely satisfying formal clothing was when I went to Europe. Yes, of all the places! The cut, the fabric, the colors and the fit – it was all perfect! I remember cribbing about the severe lack of choice in India. I almost felt like bringing back a truckload of them so that they would last me forever, and I kind-of did!

They were perfect for my formal corporate working environment, and with a combination of western formals and our very own comfortable Indian formals a.k.a kurtis, my work wear wardrobe was pretty much complete. As my work environment started to get a bit more relaxed, I began to experiment more with business-casuals. As much as I love the power packed punch that a crisp shirt-trouser-blazer combination provides, I have to say it’s really not weather appropriate, unless you are sitting in a freezing cold air conditioned office all day long.

For a mind with a creative bent, a routine with no fixed timings, and work that can quickly merge into a dinner, I prefer playing around with comfortable Indian clothing in different cuts and colors, that is at the same time office-appropriate. This printed asymmetrical kurta from limeroad.com is one such piece that can be easily transitioned from desk to dinner, with just the addition of a couple of accessories. Comfortable and bright – definitely cheers up the workspace right?!
