Formal For the Office

Wrap dresses are a spring/summer staple we’re well familiar with, but these dresses are also back with a bang this fall. The thing I love most about wrap dresses is its ability to lend a classy air, and accentuate my waistline giving me an hourglass silhouette–not to mention they flatter all body types.

This Maxi Art Illustrated Wrap Dress (S$94.00) is also the perfect representation of Pomelo’s fall collection, In Favour Of Art. The collection incorporates abstract prints that are eye-catching but not too in your face. The collar and long sleeves also give the outfit a nice touch of formality, perfect offices that take a more formal approach when it comes to dressing.

For a monochromatic look, you could accessorise this dress with a matching pair of Marbled Fan Drop Earrings (S$9.00) that comes in the same shade of pink! These earrings are sleek and simple so they won’t steal attention from the dress while adding a nice dainty detail to the overall look!


Dressed Down Fridays

Instead of wearing a plain shirt on your dress down Fridays, why not throw on a graphic tee! Graphic tees are simple yet undeniably eye-catching, which is a great way to put together a simple look that’s on trend. I like the holographic rainbow hues on this Dream Graphic Tee (S$24.00) which has been a trend all year!

The perfect partner to this simple tee is this Midi Multi Color Pleated Skirt (S$64.00)! We can’t wait to pair this with a simple white button-down top as well for a fun but formal look that’s totally office appropriate. It goes to show, bright and bold pieces can be just as versatile as our neutral staples.

To complete your look, throw on these Oversized Textured Gold Hoop Earrings (S$14.00) for a touch of glamour. And did we mention hoops are having a major trend moment this year as well?


From Desk To Drinks

This Daisy Puff Sleeve Side Tie Blouse ($S54.00) is my favourite piece from the fall collection (I got one for myself too). Puff sleeves are one of fashion’s favourite trends right now and even though the sleeves are long, the mesh material still makes everything airy and breathable–perfect for the humid weather in Singapore. I love that I can pair these with dress shorts pants or skirts, depending on where I’m going!

To jazz up this top, just throw on these Circular Plate Link Drop Earrings ($S14.00)! They tie the pops of colour on this blouse together perfectly while lending an air of elegance to this or any evening outfit!

Pomelo is definitely my favourite go-to online store when it comes to shopping for both work and casual wear because their pieces are both trendy and affordable! But of course, a discount never hurts!

For all UOB Cardmembers, you are in for a treat! From now till 31 October 2018, all cardmembers are entitled to 10% off your Pomelo order with a minimum spend of S$120.00 using the promo code: UOB10 upon check-out.
