Frederick Thomas London Top Tips

Unfortunately The International Day of Happiness falls on a work day. But don't let that dampen your spirit, you can still dress our way to happiness while also abiding to your work dress code!

Happy Colours

Yellow is a classic colour to consider, yellow connotes hope, optism and happiness. While orange also has strong links to happiness, symbolising enthusiasm, encouragement and success! It can be as easy as swapping your Navy Blue Tie for a Yellow one instead, so there is no excuse not to embrace colour!

Wear Fun Pieces

So, embrace the T-rex Tie, sport the Rubber Chicken Cufflinks and welcome the Rubber Duck Socks. These fun accessories will be sure to even bring a smile to your bosses face and light up the office.

Use Accessories

To ensure your abiding by work dress protocol, the focus is going to have to be on accessories. But it's all about the little things in life, so small and subtle accessories are perfect for helping you dress your way to happiness. Add accessories that you wouldn't normally wear, like a pocket square, lapel pin or tie clip. It's all about the finer details!

Happy Patterns

Another way to dress your way to happiness would be through prints! There is nothing worse that a plain black suit, with a plain navy tie and a plain white shirt. There are so many beautiful prints out there to play with, from florals to polka dots to paisley! Perfection in patterns.

Dress for Yourself

At the end of the day, it's all about what makes you happy! So dress for yourself. If you love your plain blue linen tie then wear it! Or if your happiest in your pink flamingo socks, then go for it!
