Top three work fashion trends for women

MOD: These black and white printed pants by Studio W embody two of the season's hottest trends.

THE year has begun and one of the questions facing women returning to work is what to wear? Top trends emerging in the new year are not only appropriate for weekend wear; they can easily be translated from the street to the office.

Local outlets have brought in printed patterns on shirts, pants and dresses and black and white strongly represented in colours with shirt dresses making a big comeback.

Bold prints can be difficult to pull off however, the popularity of this trend means that there is an abundance of patterns from which to choose. A brightly coloured, floral shirt can work as a strong statement when paired with classic pieces in neutral tones. Remember to be thoughtful when choosing accessories if you are wearing prints; subtle make-up will prevent you from looking clownish.

Black and white is ideal for the office. Shoppers are spoiled for choice as the trend enters South African retailers. The graphic combination easily projects chic professionalism if done correctly. A crisp black suit paired with a white button down shirt is a timeless combination.

Shirt dresses can be appropriate for work or casual situations depending on accessories and styling. Make sure that the cut is not too short for working comfortably.
