In true spring fashion, every girl needs some floral prints in her wardrobe. If you’re looking for something subtle, opt for a floral bag or accessories – like a silk neck scarf or a printed tote bag. This will allow you to add a touch of femininity to your work wear without being too bold.

You can also add a floral top to your work wardrobe, as it’s the perfect swap for a regular work blouse.

Stripes have always played a major role in office wear in the form of pinstriped suits, but this season if you’re feeling bold, ditch the traditional thin stripes and add some bigger eye-catching stripes to your work wear.
