Mercy Aigbe may be fighting to extricate herself from the drama that came with the infamous red dress saga, but this won't change the fact that the woman can put an outfit together.

Dressing for work can be tricky sometimes, especially for those who have regimented dress codes. However, the trick with this is to get creative, think outside the box in working with pieces you have and when all else fails, seek inspiration from the 'gram.

That's why we're looking to Ms Aigbe today for some funky work style tips.

Here are 5 times the mother of two gave us cool work chic vibes that are totaling worth trying out.

1. Ankara 101

We love creative use of ankara in work-wear and this definitely fits the bill. Whether it's on a Monday paired with heels, or dressed down with sneakers on a Friday, we're definitely here for this outfit.

2. High-waist trousers are always a good idea

If you don't already own a pair of high waist trousers in at least 2 colours, then you should definitely consider this. They're versatile and uber stylish and we love this pairing as seen on Mercy Aigbe.

3. All black everything

Everything looks better in black, especially in the work place plus it's safe and slimming so win-win.

4. Mix it up

Mercy serves us a dose of colour and florals which can be a good mix for work, especially if your office dress code isn't too rigid.

5. Pleat it

Pleats have been in for a while now so why not?
