The chilly weather is finally upon us and with it, a whole new set of fashion challenges to keep us busy. No longer can we rely on our go-to summer dresses and shorts; we have to get a little more creative with our wardrobe if we want to remain both stylish and office-appropriate. If you’re like me, you don’t want to sacrifice your style for the sake of being professional. So, how do we achieve both?
Here are a few tips:
While you don’t have to wear all black like a goth teenager, sticking to a few key colors will make getting dressed in the morning a lot easier. If you find yourself constantly reaching for the same few colors, it’s probably because they look good on you. So, embrace them! If you’re not sure what colors look good on you, ask a friend or family member whose fashion sense you trust, or consult a professional.
This doesn’t mean you have to wear the same thing every day, but finding a style that flatters your figure and is comfortable for you will make getting dressed each day much easier. If you’re not sure what style works for you, again, ask a friend or family member whose fashion sense you trust, or consult a professional.
A good blazer, a well-fitting pair of pants, and a comfortable yet stylish pair of shoes are key pieces that every working woman should have in her wardrobe. These items can be mixed and matched to create a variety of looks, so you’ll never be stuck wearing the same thing day after day.
Accessories are a great way to add a personal touch to your outfit and make it your own. A statement necklace or a bold pair of earrings can really dress up an otherwise simple outfit. But be careful not to go overboard – too many accessories can be distracting and take away from your professional appearance.
No matter what you’re wearing, if you’re not confident in it, it’s not going to look good on you. So, wear what makes you feel good! If you feel good, you’ll look good – it’s that simple.
following these tips, you’ll be sure to stay stylish yet office-appropriate all fall long.
The vest looks great with those pants and loafers! In Italy I pretty much flip between wearing feminine styles and often wear shirts with a princess line, but I also like fuller, less-shaped or straight, undarted men’s shirts – just depends on what I’m wearing on the bottom and the look I am going for. I remember a friend saying that she felt shaped shirts on women were a little bit too “news anchor.” Oh and I also love Katherine Hepburn. I think she was the one who said, “If I always do what interests me, at least one person will be pleased.” 🙂
