What should I wear at the office? Here is a question that used to be difficult for classy trendy ladies. Luckily, that is no longer the case since fashion is building its way even into the most rigid multinational corporation. Nowadays, it is a lot easier to have a look that is both professional and chic. All you have to do is keep in mind a couple of simple rules.
For starters, find out what the company policy says about style. There are some places where casual clothes are permitted while others have strict regulations regarding this issue. Whatever the case with your employer’s view on the matter, always keep in mind that what you wear at work sends a message about you as a professional. Therefore, choose wisely.
One of the elements that immediately catches our eye when looking at someone is definitely color. So, even though you may have a sparkly personality, let your outfit express it in your time off. While at work, go for simple colors, black and grey are considered to be the safest. In order to brighten things up, add a touch of color with a red scarf, chic bag or other lady-like accessories. It will be just the feminine touch your outfit needs.
Size matters, so why would fashion make an exception? Actually, when it comes to fashion, size matters more than anything. Never buy an outfit that is too small but be careful not to go for the extreme either: a suit that is two sizes too large will make you look sloppy and unprofessional. Choose cloths that fit you nicely in order to underline you best physical features. Office cloths now come in all shapes and sizes so it shouldn’t be too hard finding the perfect one for you.
Dresses, skirts, trousers – the ladies have a large variety of choices. Unfortunately it’s not just as easy for men. They certainly cannot wear skirts or dresses therefore a suit is pretty much the best they can do. However, accessories can work wonders for them when chosen wisely. A good watch will both attract the ladies look and contribute to a sharp business look.
Shoes are also an important piece in a gentleman’s look. Along with the watch, shoes are what add style and personality to their overall outfit which is why they pay at least as much attention when buying a pair as women do. Shoes for men are generally easy to find. However, finding the special ones requires some market research.
