Add Style to Your Work Wardrobe
Your wardrobe doesn’t have to be drab. While your basic rule concerning professional dress should be “when in doubt, take the conservative route,” that doesn’t have to mean boring clothes and accessories. You can’t go wrong with neutral colors such as gray, navy, and black. If you start with an outfit that is well-tailored and looks put together, then you can add accents and accessories that still let your uniqueness shine through.
Here are some ways you can add some personality to your work wardrobe:
It’s what underneath that counts. You can add some spunk to your suit with what you put on underneath it. Choose a blouse or shell in a contrasting color or a fun print.
It’s in the bag. The right bag and shoes can add panache to an outfit that is otherwise less than exciting. Choose colors that pop against the more neutral tones of your base garments.
Show some sole. While it is important your shoes are comfortable you can still pick a shoe that sets itself apart with a special touch such as a buckle, bow, or bright color.
It’s all about hair style. Your fabulous fashion sense will peek through when you top neat hair with a flowered or beaded headband.
Go wild. Even though your leopard pants should be saved for a night at the club, animal prints are not strictly forbidden. A spotted scarf or a pair of pony print loafers are certainly tame enough for the office.
