When you think of business clothing, you probably think of dark colors and uninspired designs.
It can be hard to know how to dress for work.
However, there are still plenty of ways you can add in your favorite colors and subtle elements that showcase your personal style.
There are ways to dress to be taken seriously without having to save your favorite pieces for the weekends. So before you toss those bold-print dresses and statement earrings, read this post.
Jewelry is an easy way to make a personal statement and accessorize an otherwise-drab office look. It can also be the perfect accompaniment to a breezy summer work outfit, for when you need to transition to rooftop drinks right after work.
It’s best to make sure not to put on too many pieces of jewelry, however. Not only does this drag down your look, it can also be tough to write those memos when you’re wearing three bracelets and several rings!
When in doubt, a good pair of earrings is a great choice. Not only do they keep out of your way while you’re trying to do your job, they also bring extra attention to your face — great for connecting with clients in person.
There are so many different things you can do with your nails. With all of the new nail trends and designs coming out every year, there’s never a lack of things you can do with them to bring a little life to your business clothing.
While we don’t advocate for the coffin nails trend or suggest super-long nails, an elegant design can help to bring a little of your personality to your workplace. Plus, other coworkers will love your look.
Shoes are a huge debate in the workforce right now. Should women wear open-toed shoes in the workplace? How high is too high when it comes to heels?
The good news is that, even if your workplace has strict regulations regarding women’s shoes, you still have a lot of options: strappy sandals, pumps, even boots.
These days, no matter your size, you can find the perfect complement to your business clothing, even when it comes to shoes for wide feet and shoes for little feet.
Looking for a pop of color? Try a scarf. There are many different kinds of patterns and colors available that can really liven up a work outfit. They come in both winter and summer varieties, too.
You can tie them on your purse, in your hair, or even put a scarf in the pocket of your favorite work blazer.
In the office, your purse doesn’t just hold your keys and makeup. It’s also where you keep important business documents.
Why not use this staple of any woman’s wardrobe as a way to showcase your personal style?
Plus, if you’re into logos graphic tees, but can’t exactly pull that off in your clothing, let your purse do the talking.
Business Clothing Doesn’t Need to be Boring
By using these particular parts to liven up your work attire, you won’t have any trouble finding a great work style that you love. Wearing clothing that makes you feel good boosts confidence, too.
