When you’re getting dressed for work, it does not come as a surprise that you need more time than you do on your day off. You should consider several things before you decide on an outfit: is the outfit comfortable, does it look good, is it a professional piece? If you work in an office setting, don’t go for a ‘too casual’ style. It is important to dress in a manner that sends a message with your look. That message should be: I have great significance in the business world. Therefore, you should dress like it. Dressing in a professional manner can help build confidence and self-esteem.
Tips on How to Dress Professional and Stylish
1. Align your look with the company’s culture
Your first step is to create a professional look based on your company’s culture. For example, if everyone is wearing a suit, you should wear a suit as well and vice versa if it’s business casual.
2. Find stylish items that you LOVE
Once you have created your professional look, scan through fashion magazines for fresh fashion and style inspiration. Always be on the lookout for fashion styles that inspire you, because those are the pieces that will make you feel confident about your professional style.
3. Blend your professional look with accessories
Now it’s time for the fun part: blending and accessorizing your professional look. Start with jewelry. Choose a conservative pair of earrings and a necklace. A statement necklace can turn a boring looking outfit into a stylish masterpiece.
