Don’t slacken in your fashion statements at work, especially when you have bottom wear like Slacks to your rescue. What are slacks and why are we talking about it suddenly? Can it be worn to office, it sounds informal. What kind of slacks are the best for me? We have tried to answer all of these questions in this piece, just read on and take advantage of the latest slack trend for office wear.
Slacks have been around since ages, they are nothing but formal pants that can be worn without complete formal attire. By this we mean that you can wear a pair of slacks with a blouse or even t-shirt and go to work (if your office code allows you to wear t-shirts, that is) and not have to top it off with a blazer or a formal jacket. Yes, it will still be counted as formal bottom wear.
Slacks may be made of stretch fabric or non-stretch fabric, depending on where you buy it or get it tailored from.
We always suggest getting bottom wear for office that stretches because it is meant to be worn for longer hours and it helps if there is room for moving around freely with stretch. In the case of slacks we highly recommend ones made with stretch fabric because they are generally tailored for a snug fit.
So the next time you feel like dressing formal but with spunk, just put on a pair of slacks made with stretch fabric and rock a meeting, presentation, interview or just about anything!
If you’re looking to buy stretch jeans in the near future, you might want to give this a read. Stretch jeans work on all body types because they are woven from Covered Spandex Yarn that either takes the shape of the body or sculpts it depending on the spandex to hard yarn ratio in the composition of the fabric.
If the covered spandex yarn composition has high spandex yarn counts it is likely to provide more stretch. Naturally, this fabric is made to be more flexible, taking the shape of the body type of the wearer.
This type of fabric is ideal for women who have a slim frame or a taut proportionate body. The fabric is flexible and sculpts the body of the wearer in the most natural way possible.
If the covered spandex yarn composition has low spandex yarn counts it is likely to provide controlled or less stretch. This fabric is made to be more structured and rigid, controlling the body of the the wearer.
This type of fabric is ideal for women who want to control their curves and give their bodies a taut and firm appearance.
Knowing the stretch denim fabric that ticks for you reduces bad experiences while buying jeans or skirts. Just tug to explore and pick the right fit for you.
Monsoon puddles can be extremely fun, but not when you have to step out for work! Whether you like it or not they are going to be around and getting your office wear dirty is the easiest calamity during monsoon. If you follow a few easy and simple monsoon office wear tips, however, you can minimise the possibility of getting your attire dirty and stay fresh and clean for work.
Crop Leg Trousers:
These are must haves in your monsoon office wardrobe. Why? It’s fairly simple– crop leg trousers are shorter in length, they hang above your ankle, naturally making them less prone to getting wet if you encounter water-logged areas on your way. How short? You can decide how short based on your personal taste, as long as it fits within the office dress code boundaries. Ones made with Cotton Stretch Yarn made fabric are ideal, from a freedom of movement point of view.
Quarter Sleeve, Half Sleeve or Sleeveless Tops:
The same logic as the crop leg trousers, crop sleeve tops are ideal for monsoon weather simply because the lesser the fabric, the lesser the chances of it getting wet and staying wet, especially if you travel in non-ac transport. We suggest wearing fitted sleeveless, half or quarter sleeved tops made with cotton stretch yarn if cotton is your choice of fabric for office wear.
Light Fabric Applications:
Light Cotton Stretch Yarn or polycotton stretch yarn made fabric applications are easier to dry off because heavy cotton yarn made fabrics have a tendency to absorb more water. You can avoid jeans but wear jeggings or leggings. For tops, breezy collarless shirts make a great option. Also, avoid too much layering. The lighter, the better.
Since monsoon is just a hop, skip and a jump away, it’s time for all to be ready to welcome it with open arms and possibly, free legs because there will be a lot of hopping, skipping and jumping involved wherever you encounter puddles. That brings us to our next point, which clothes are the best to be hopping, skipping and jumping around, after all, you don’t want to get soaked in the event of one poorly executed hop. What better than skirts to look stylish in and still do the hoping around with safety and grace? Here are some super stylish skirt options that will get you rainy day ready…
Tulip: this is an interesting one, shaped like an upside down bulb, a tulip skirt is just right for rainy days. It’s layered in such a way that if the legs need to expand, it would open up just like a flower, providing the comfort to hop around. If the material of the skirt is a blend of bare spandex and hard yarns, it will give you just the right stretch and structure to look fabulous and be sporty whenever it’s required
Tube: tube skirts don’t facilitate free movement for jumping puddles, they are snug body-hugging movement inhibitors… false. When bare spandex is a component of it’s material, they prove to be the perfect skirts that enable hopping and give you a chic appeal. Wear one and try it. Make sure that if you’re wearing one to work, the length is appropriate.
Circle: this is a mighty cute one that will not only make your bottom appear fuller but also give you ample freedom for jumping and hopping. It’s neither snug nor loose. It’s just free flowing. It will move with your body. Just try to get one in a heavier fabric so that in case of a surprise gust of wind, you don’t have yourself an embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Since this is a free flowing skirt, the presence of bare spandex in its make wont make much of a difference, but it always helps to have a stretch in your garments, just in case you lose or put on a few kilos here and there.
