We hate to bring this up before you’ve even been to your New Year’s Eve bashes, but it’s not long before the festivities will all be over and it’s time to return to the world of work again.
No more getting up at whatever time you like and nodding off in front of the telly in the afternoon – but you could ease yourself back into the real world by adding some cheery accessories to your office attire.
If you’re used to wearing trousers all the time, why not try a skirt and some patterned tights? Fashion hosiery, as long as it’s not too garish, can look great with smart work clothes.
Amy Verner, fashion expert at the Globe and Mail, agreed. She said that some patterns will add a welcome splash of colour while still looking professional, with black or grey being the most suitable.
"High statement hosiery needs to be offset by classic pieces. So if you’re going out on a limb with a print, make sure to keep everything else basic black," she urged.
We love Emilio Cavallini‘s Metallic Pie De Poule Tights, which have a great houndstooth print with a splash of metallic threading for a classic but funky look.
If you’re nervous about trying patterns and prints, why not try going for a different colour opaque instead? Purple can be a great alternative to brown or black in winter and will ensure you look both capable and fun in the office!
