Are you pondering about your current office wear? Business attire is a formal dress code for most companies here in Southeast Asia and it denotes a professional style. But for most of us who've been working from home amid the pandemic, dressing in casual business wear has been the norm.

It's not about dressing in boring office outfit and muted dark colours, but updating your look with a statement piece for a more fun, chic getup. 

You can easily add a colourful bag, jewellery pieces or even a bright blazer so as to not look too classic. The idea here is, everything is in the details.

Take a cue from Jeanette Aw, who's wearing a textured beige blazer over skorts.
