Working in a business environment is indeed stressful so a fresh outfit can make or break a deal even more so, when you are still applying for a job. Men can easily pick the ideal suit but it’s an entirely different story for women. But following a few tips can help you streamline your selections and maintain your choice of professional dresses that best fits your job description.
Even if your blouse is worn under a blazer or jacket, it should always be proper for the office. Pick fabrics that represent formal business attire and ensure that it should not be very thin so as to reveal your undergarment. Prioritize blouses with sleeve no matter how short instead of opting for a sleeveless one. Stay away from blouses with plunging neckline and make it a point that your choice complements the rest of your attire.
Of course, the choice of skirts should be formal as well such as those falling at least to your knee when standing. If a skirt rises further up when sitting down, then you may consider it as too short. Veer off from skirts with back and side slits as they may be construed as too informal. Even if you see a design that may look good on you, other professionals may not view it as such so it is better to be on the safe side especially if you want to climb up the corporate ladder.
Mismatched accessories can easily ruin an otherwise great outfit so choose smartly. Aside from ensuring that your pumps go well with your overall formal dress, it should also be clean and polished. Pick those designs that cover your entire foot as open-toed shoes are considered informal. In addition, do not sacrifice comfort for style as it will be doubly difficult to concentrate during a meeting when your foot is aching. Although stilettos are great looking, few women wear it to work especially if their job entails walking around the office or going up and the down the building.
These are simple, straightforward guides in selecting the right formal dress so you should not worry of going wrong when you follow them. And for special events and soirees, take a look at the wide collection of Elliot Claire Fashion and you’ll surely find something that will suit your taste and purpose.
