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 personality.
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:
•    Accessories
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?

•    Blazer
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.

•    Versatility
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.

•    Comfortable
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.

Conclusion…
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.

You write so well! Our physical appearance does show a side of who we are, but some might disagree. As a lady, you want to be respected, so dressing the part is a must.
