In today’s quick and busy pace of life when you’re at the office from 9 to 5 then have an outing afterwards, women often struggle to strike that balance of business and pleasure in their daily outfits.
Egyptian designers recognize the busy lives of women, and accordingly try to facilitate this struggle by designing items that can work both in an office setting and also work in a restaurant or outing setting.
Curating the best of Egyptian fashion, MITCHA’s style editors compiled a list of some of these items that will fit seamlessly in the wardrobe of any woman on the go because of their versatility.
OMNIA WOMENSWEAR is one of the designers who put this into careful consideration when coming up with collections. Putting emphasis on the struggles that women face in the workplace, she put together a collection that is professional, sophisticated and fun. Her Yellow Crepe Long Pants are an especially stunning piece, with its bright color complimenting most skin tones. Another favorite from her collection is the Polka Dots Skirt which can transition from day to night by just switching tops or jackets.
Often the easiest item to style up an outfit in a professional way is to throw on a blazer. However, blazers are sometimes too heavy and hardly ever work in a non-professional setting. RECESSES’ Black Cardigan with White Collar finds the balance between professional and playful with this easy and light cardigan with collars that dress up the entire ensemble. Wear it in black or follow the trend and get it in yellow, one of the season’s trending colors.
One of the best ways to elevate any item of clothing is to pick the right fabric for the occasion. Play with the delicate silk of ROMMANAH’s Romantica Silk Blouse available in stock in white, black and aubergine. The simplicity of the blouse keeps you comfortable throughout the long day, and the silk adds an extra sense of class and playfulness to the outfit. For an added touch, style it with the Star Lariat by DNA for added elegance and color.
Since a long day means you’re spending a lot of time on your feet, the right shoes are essential. TAYREE’s Black Oxford Shoes are a comfortable and versatile pair that look right at home in the office and will never tempt you to take them off during your drive home after a long day.
The Accordion Plisse Skirts by GRACE BY SANDY are also versatile pieces that can be styled up or styled down to help you make the transition from day to night. Available in red and blue, they are sure to fit in with your existing work wardrobe and elevate any basic shirt or blouse.
Along with the basic shirt or blouse, though, a couple of creative blouses might also be a welcome addition to break up the routine of work attire. We especially like the Checkered Organza Sleeves Shirt and the Ruffled Sleeves Shirt, both by CAMICIE.
With your comfortable and professional work ensemble and the style and trendiness of Egypt’s best curated fashion, the transition from business to pleasure should be easier than ever before.
