Look professional and stylish at work
Gone are the days when your work attire
had to be dull and boring. There used to be a time when work was work
and play was play but now women everywhere can have fun with their
wardrobe and inject some style into the office. Stereotypically, work
clothing comprises of a smart t-shirt or button shirt, with matching
suit pants or a pencil skirt. Popular colors include black, grey and
white. However, life is not just black and white – and neither is our
Obviously there is a fine balance between
experimenting with your dress sense and being too outlandish. After
all, work is a professional setting and you need to dress
appropriately. Your outfit is one of the first things someone sees
which they will use to establish an impression of you. So think to
yourself, what reputation do you want to convey? There is a way to look smart and qualified as well as stylish. Here are 6 expert top tips:
As dog is to man, accessories are a girl’s best friend. They can
completely transform and change a look. If you do have a casual outfit
which you need to make look chic, try to add a nice accessory like a
glitzy necklace or an on-trend bag. It will brighten up any dull
ensemble and allow you to add a splash of color. Why not add an
embellished waist belt or printed scarf?
The blazer is a must-have garment for any woman’s wardrobe. By throwing
a blazer over a t-shirt and jeans, you can create a cool but smart
look. It can also smarten up a casual dress.
• Clean shoes
Battered shoes look scruffy and unprofessional so whatever you wear,
make sure they are clean and polished. If you want to wear flat heels,
black boots tend to go with anything and are comfortable which is
especially helpful to ladies who are on their feet all day.
• Peplum tops
These are autumn/winter 2012’s biggest trends and can transform your
outfit from drab to chic. Ultimately it works best with a skirt but it
is a statement piece so use it with the simplest of items like jeans to
add a dramatic, professional edge. Keep the colors simple.
By investing in plenty of staples, you will find it easier to mix and
match your outfits so you are never wearing the same item over and over
again. Rather than buying lots of different items, invest in a couple
that can be worn together so you can get maximum wear out of them. For
example – buy a simple staple shirt that can be worn with jeans and
boots for a casual look or tucked into a pencil skirt for more formal
occasion such as meetings or events.
You don’t want to be the person that’s staggering around the office
because your heels are too high or struggling to sit down because your
skirt is too tight! Buy clothes that are stylish yet comfortable to
ensure that you feel great at work. If you feel unhappy in what you are
wearing it is likely that you will probably feel miserable too and be
unproductive! A soft, stretchy sweater dress is a good example.
You can be professional and stylish at work – all it takes it a little
bit of know-how and creativity. Showcase your individuality and love
for clothing while maintaining your confidence. If you look the part,
you will feel the part.
