4 Great Ways To Accessorise Stylishly With Indo Western Office Wear

Posted: January 7, 2016

Love wearing Indo Western office outfits to work? Here are some great accessories to team up with my last post on Indo Western wear for work. 

I have always loved Indian prints and as a professional, struggled to put together work pieces blending it with Western wear. I have gotten better over the years, adding a bandhani scarf here and a silk tunic there; hopefully I can now inspire you to do the same! I have put together three looks, combining ethnic patterns with traditional wardrobe staples.

My belief is that if you can mix and match with what’s already in your closet, you can create more outfits and on the long run, it’s easier on the wallet.

Look 1: Western pants, Indian everything else

For the first look, I started with basic, black, tapered crop pants. I paired it with an Ikat Tunic with a high collar. Long sleeves are definitely more comfortable in the office, especially with chilly air conditioning. Add a dainty pair of earrings and you are good to go. I loved the enamel earrings featured. It’s such a beautiful rendition of the traditional Paisley motif. Nice pop of color too.

Look 2: Pencil skirt with subtle jewellery

For the second look, I paired a soft, hand printed cotton Crop Top with a high-waisted pencil skirt. The elbow length sleeves and the longer hem make it look professional and chic. Polish off the look with a subtle piece of jewelry – a circle and arrow, gold plated brass cuff.

Look 3: Add a bold jacket

I think the third look will depend on your office’s work culture. The bold Ikat printed jacket is balanced with a soft, yellow dress. Made with blended cotton with a nice detail of hand-beaded neckline, the dress is comfortable and stylish. Geometric, drop earrings add a subtle touch of bling.

You can also experiment with accessories to add a hip Indian touch to your professional attire. I have featured a few – from gorgeous leather wallets to pretty iPad sleeves.
