Wear Closed Shoes
As tempting as it may be to wear open-toed shoes to the office in the summer, you need to resist the urge. There are so many stylish closed shoes available that will pair perfectly with women’s formal dress pants; you just need to browse around. Opt for something with a heel or without, as long your toes are covered that is all you need to be business-chic.
Don’t Show Too Much Skin
Most corporate workspaces have dress codes that need to be adhered to; these dress codes are in place to foster a professional working environment for all employees. Keep your business wardrobe classy and professional by covering up, you want to show your colleagues that you are serious about your job and respect yourself enough to choose the right attire for the workplace. Keep your outfit choices appropriate for a working environment by choosing longer dresses and blouses with a higher neckline.
Invest In Classy Jackets
Formal and semi-formal jackets and blazers are a perfect investment for your working wardrobe. These days that thankfully doesn’t mean shoulder pads. There are thousands of options for women to wear to work that will be flattering as well as perfect for the office. Think feminine tailored jackets paired with the perfect pencil skirt, this look is classic and workplace appropriate.
Don’t Overdo Your Make-Up
Don’t wear too much make-up in the office; remember to always opt for daytime looks instead of evening glam. If your working day is going to overlap with a business dinner then take a few key make-up items with you to transform your look from a day to an evening look effortlessly. These items include mascara, eyeliner, and facial spritzer to freshen up your face after a long day at the office. The number 1 rule to remember with workplace make-up is to never wear anything with glitter in it, glitter is never appropriate for the office.
Opt For The Classics
You can never go wrong with a pair of gorgeous nude heels, a few pencil skirts in classic colors like navy, grey, or cream, and some loose-fitting blouses. Once you’ve chosen your work wardrobe then you can focus on the accessories like a laptop bag, appropriate jewelry items, and sunglasses. The key element to the perfect work wardrobe is that it should never make any of your colleagues feel awkward or uncomfortable so always ask a trusted friend if you are unsure of your selected outfits.
