How to Rebel During Your 9-5

How to Rebel During Your 9-5

Spicing up your corporate look can be daunting. We all know how it feels to trudge through the work week, staring out the office window, tapping your under-appreciated leopard-printed flats on the drab linoleum. Never fear, Happy Rebels, with Happy Rebel, there’s hope in sight! We’ve got you covered with five tips to bring back the spunk, and your rebellious style, to your work week:

Cancel out those Monday blues by adding a little rebel glam to your fresh ‘fit! Add a gem-studded statement necklace to your neutral toned top; pop in some sparkly studs or simple small hoops to keep the focus on your face, and pair it with a lightly bronzed eyeshadow to bring the whole look together.


Get yourself some new desk accessories! Whether it’s a fierce skull paperweight or edgy chrome tacks, we love a subtle metal vibe. Using marble post-it notes will make your note taking considerably more exciting, and a pretty USB charger will make you want to keep everything at 100%. Place some faux succulents to keep your space feeling fresh without the hassle of watering.


Mid-week refresh, Rebels. You made it halfway, so treat yourself to an after-hours facemask and bath soak. Light up a lavender candle (a scent known for its relaxing properties), pop a bath bomb or some epsom salt in the tub, and relax with some melodic music or your favorite TV show.

If Thursday were an outfit, it’d definitely be a bossy one. Let your almond toe heels take the front stage with some cute cigarette pants, flirty blouse, and a top knot. Add a cuff ponytail holder to your slicked-back do. We have a hand-selected lifestyle piece for every occasion!


Finish the week strong! Always save the most rebellious outfit and attitude for the last day of the week. Match your sass with a cropped blazer, faux leather pants, and some gold bangles. You’re ready for any last minute meetings, and happy hour drinks after work. Officially prepped for the weekend!


Here at Happy Rebel headquarters we work hard to put together a collection of modern, edgy products, just for you. If you use any of the tips above or put your own rebellious spin on it, let us know! We want to bring your simple, edgy, modern, and luxe style straight to your door.
