Guest Blog: Workwear For Hourglass Figures

This guest post was written by Jennifer and Melissa of Workchic.com. Workchic helps dress women for work by offering suggested outfits, fit guidelines, tips and tricks on how to look professional, feminine and chic. Check out the Workchic blog for tips and trends!

Our friends at Polyvore have already covered workwear for apples, boyish, and pear shapes. We are jumping in to help with hourglass figures. Your friends are probably jealous of your figure, but when getting dressed for work it may be easy to stumble. We want to show you how to keep the sexy secretary at bay and play up your polished professional look.



For a Business Casual office, go with a printed A-line skirt. We selected a knit top with a ribbed waistband so it will accentuate your smallest part. Both the drapey cardigan and skirt will float away from your body. The necklace should hit above the neckline of your top. This combination is sweet and sophisticated all at once. You will be ready for any event thrown your way since this outfit creates such a balanced look.



For a Business Professional office, keep the garments simple and play with accessories. This dress is perfect for your hourglass figure, the pleats along the skirt will provide a softening effect and the jacket keeps things all business. The simple nature is begging for a statement necklace. Depending on your office environment, pick the shoes that will work best for you.



For a casual day at the office, try wide leg trouser jeans and a loose printed blouse. Tuck in the blouse and add a belt for a polished look. Also plan on wearing a cami underneath this light weight fabric. We paired it with fun aqua and green accessories to bring out the colors in the print.

Excellent to know there is some fashionable workwear out there. I think Helly Hansen were first to set the trend of fashion in the workplace.

It is an amazing concept to introduce Personalised Workwear in Companies. They will look unique. Also better to print their company logo in on the Shirts, T-shirts. It is an automatic advertisement.

Great to see the advice on a video but you cannot be serious in recommending a top like that for those of us who work in secondary schools! Shame you don't get to see the outfit as a whole on the video.
