Nowadays, more and more companies are becoming lenient and flexible with their policies inside the workplace. Some people even have the luxury to work from home, work anytime they want as long as they fulfill certain hours a day or week aka "flexitime"; some though, stretch the policy people tend to forget--dress codes.

For someone like me who works in an environment where dress codes are sometimes overlooked, it's quite easy to decide for an outfit. However, for some, it is not the case. So for this post, let me just share a few tips on how you can wear your statement tees, band shirts and whatnot in the office without looking all too casual.

1. Wear it with a long vest.
Now I know it could seem like a very little addition to your casual outfit (tee + jeans), but with the right pieces, you can definitely pull it off. For this, I suggest you either wear either a simple black pair of slip ons or a nude or black pair of heels. Then, wear a simple necklace (go for a minimalist jewelry) be it gold or silver, then pair it with a watch of the same color.

2. Wear it with a long pencil skirt and heels.
If you're too concerned that wearing a tee will make your style too casual especially in the office, then fret not - this is definitely for you. I suggest that you wear your tee with a long black pencil skirt that fits enough to show your curves and is just below your knee. Pair it with a red lipstick and that sexy minimal heels of yours - plus a pair of single-strap thin or block heels! Girl boss, indeed.

3. Wear it with a blazer.
And by blazer, I don't just mean any blazer. I mean a neat and clean looking blazer that is ironed well and is still in good shape, color and fit. Actually, investing in a good blazer--one that costs a more or less than a thousand bucks can surely come in handy. After all, blazers can now be worn in events, office, or simply a nice day out! By the way, if distressed jeans are not allowed in the office, you can wear a black or black and white printed pants for that edgy yet work-friendly attire. It'll look even better with a metallic stilleto or a statement ankle booth for sure.

4. Wear it with culottes.
With the right color and style, a culotte wouldn't look too casual in the office. Wear it with a white sneakers for a minimalist feel, or wear it with a single strap block sandals or heels. Outfit works better with jewel-colored accessories and Kylie Lipkit in either Dirty Peach or Ginger.

5. Experiment!
First of all--you will never know until you try. So mix and match your current pieces, but bear in mind that you can only wear so much color: a maximum of 8, to be exact. I say, stick to the classics but don't forget to be yourself. After all, confidence is the key. As long as you are confident in wearing whatever it is you have, it will look good. :)

Happy mix and matching!
