First off, the semi-formal as the name suggests is not completely formal and thus, even if you have a date with someone right after or you are going to hang out with your friends like that, a semi-formal look will be your go-to outfit for all these occasions and more.

THE WINTER LOOK
We are sure you are as excited about the winter season as we are but what you would wear to an office presentation is still a problem. Usually, we can not pull off a jacket in the offices for one, they are heavy and two, they are too casual. So what do we do? Well we have simplified the answer by picking up the long coats and turtlenecks to go with them and we know you will be a little skeptical about it and we give that to you but the whole point of it is, we know you are going to pull it off in full on swag and style.
The whole look may be completed with a coat on the top of the skinny top and the pants would fit in just right to complete the whole look.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE WEARING FORMALS
Formals are quite a task when it comes to office and interviews and thus if you are willing to leave an impression you need to be effective and keep a few things in mind. We have listed a few things below which we think you should definitely keep a note of while you are wearing your formals because sometimes even they are hard to pull off if you don’t keep track of the formal fashion basics. So save yourself from fashion disasters by keeping a note of the following things we have listed below.
OFFICE OUTFITS COLORS
First off, the colors should be formal and not too bright, so we urge you to avoid the yellows and bright reds because they let off a casual vibe, and while in a meeting you definitely don’t want to be casual. So even while at interviews avoid the reds and yellows and go for more formals like pastels of black and white and cream to be on the safer side.
OFFICE FASHION HAIRSTYLE FOR WOMEN
Secondly, try to be more careful about the ways you get your hair done because they are an important part of the whole look. Hair should be done neatly and even if you do not want to experiment a lot with your hairstyle a neat pony with center-parted hair tucked properly or even a nice bun would do. Just keep in mind to avoid hair accessories because in a formal look you would want to keep the accessories minimal and hair accessories might become too over the top.
FOOTWEAR IDEAS ( OFFICE OUTFITS IDEAS )
Thirdly, shoes and sandals are definitely going to affect your overall look. So take note of comfort as well as your style. And be careful with what you pair with the formals. It goes without saying that sneakers and sandals are not office wear at all. That leaves us with only heels and boots. Heels are not comfortable and in the long run, although you can pull that off if your work is mostly sedentary and you don’t have to run around in the office.
The ballerinas however are a better option if you think that heels are not your thing because they are comfy and classy. We think if you are not a heel person, you can safely opt for a ballerina and thus you would be good to go. We have picked out ballerinas we think would be a total replacement for the heels and we know you would love them too. So go check those babies out.
Wanna know more about footwear BRANDS
Office wear is all about being confident and yet not too out there and therefore you need to use subtle colors for your makeup that are not too loud and shady. Now don’t you worry, all you have to do is grab a subtle color( avoid bright colors like cherry red or purple, etc. ) as a lipstick shade and try not to use a lot of bling in your makeup( not even at parties, yes) because it takes away the essence of the whole business look. So this would be another thing we would suggest you keep in mind.
