While it’s true that in this day and age, office attire is more approachable and casual than ever, greater wisdom holds that dressing professionally still pays off in the long run. Your boss will take you more seriously, you will possess a more formidable presence, and you might even do your job better—all because of how you dress.
To help us overcome our growing tendency toward business-too-casual attire in the office, here is a simple guide that will help you look more professional.
INVEST IN A CLASSIC SUIT
Invest in a classic suit that will take you through any season and any job. Add a bit of flair and feminine charm with a silk blouse.
HAVE A SLEEK PAIR OF STILETTOS
Every woman needs a simple pair of stilettos for work. Ditch your party shoes and go for something simple, comfortable, and elegant.
INVEST IN A SIMPLE DAY-TO-NIGHT DRESS
Day-to-night dressing is made easy with a simple dress. Add a blazer in the office; remove it and accessorize for an after-work cocktail event.
UNDERSTATED ACCESSORIES ARE BEST AT THE OFFICE
Understated and minimal is the best way to go when accessorizing during work hours. If you are all about bold statement jewelry, pair it with a simple, clean outfit for contrast.
LEAVE THE SMOKY EYE FOR AFTER WORK
