Hi! I am Monica de Liz, a style expert for watchmojo.com. Every morning we all face the same dilemma, what should you wear to work? Let's talk about career builders. Here we have two examples of what is appropriate to wear in the office.
When it comes to accessories, you don't want to wear anything that is too flashy. You want to go for classic and traditional pieces that are timeless. Just like my watch. I would go for a pearl necklace as well which is a timeless piece you can wear with anything. When it comes to belt, I would choose something that is a more conservative classic. It has an edge but it is still classic.
Powerful colors also play a big role in your professional image. Navy is seen as trustworthy while a gray can be seen as conservative. Dark brown as approachable and black represents authority. These colors work well in pant suits, skirts, dresses and shoes when mixed with softer feminine colors like white or soft pink.
Fit is everything when we talk about tailored work clothes. Pants should be fitted but free of visible panty lines. Skirts, especially pencil, should be loose enough to comfortably sit in. Jackets and shirts should be buttoned without any pulling.
Professional looking shoes are a must in any office environment. Pumps, slingbacks, ballet or pointy flats are the best choice to keep your feet elegant at the workplace. To compliment your office look with style, choose a structure handbag. Go for styles that project an organized image.
Now let's talk about career killers. Too revealing or too sexy is definitely a no-no in the office. Wild prints, tight clothing, plunging necklines, it's called work for a reason. If you are too casual in the office, people are not going to take you and your work seriously. So avoid wearing gym clothes, spaghetti straps, jeans, sports attire and open-toe shoes. If doesn't fit, don't wear it. Take the time to study your body-shape and learn what enhances your figure.
