Work Style: Professional Blouses

Playing around with looks and styles is half the fun of getting dressed in the morning, so why not take that sense of enjoyment along into your workday? This week, we’re highlighting some of our favourite blouses and shirts that will earn their keep in the workplace but wouldn’t look out of place for an evening out or a lunch date with friends.

Embracing the right look on any given day can provide you with the confidence boost you need to nail a crucial presentation, lead a game-changing meeting, or sign on a brand new client.

The dress code rules of a professional environment can sometimes feel a little rigid — especially if you work in a business formal setting — but there’s usually some room for experimentation with colour, texture, and cut. You can never really go wrong with a white button down shirt, but how about trying one with a more unusual cut or an unexpected oversized collar? A sheer blouse can get a more serious twist by having a polka dot pattern or very traditional tailoring. (At Parkers, we have an army of experienced tailors available to make sure the fit of your work wardrobe is always impeccable.) Or take a chance on menswear styles with a feminine twist, like a pinstripe shirt with a bow tie neck. Go monochrome with a brightly coloured blouse paired with a skirt or slacks in the same colour, or balance out a bold top with something more classic on the bottom. The possibilities are endless!

As clothing care specialists, we know that quality professional workwear often requires more specialized cleaning care than casual garments do. Be sure to always read care labels carefully and whenever in doubt, contact a professional to help keep your beautiful work blouses in perfect condition. In weeks when the workload is a little heavy, or you’d rather stay home and relax, get in touch with Parkers about our free pick up and delivery service in the GTA.

Now, down to business with the looks and styles inspiring us to step up our workwear game this week:
