Professional, fashion-conscious women share a common bond that literally transcends age, race, religion, and occupation. Professional women can use their image to enhance confidence, professionalism, strength, power, authority, and status in the business world and academia. Dressing appropriately for meetings, work, networking events, and other business related activities is absolutely essential to growth, development, and respect. It is very important for women to take care of the clothes and accessories they buy and how they dress in the workplace. There really is a fine line between what is acceptable and what is not.
Listed below are helpful tips on how professional women can build their wardrobe and wear the right clothes to project a confident, consistent and stylish image!
Women should pay close attention to the type of shoes they wear when conducting business in a professional or formal setting. Shoes should always be well made and fit the feet properly. Tight shoes can be uncomfortable and can be easily noticed by others. Women who wear shoes that are too big, can project a sloppy image that doesn’t represent confidence or proper style. Women’s shoes should also be properly sanded and not have scuff marks or tears in the leather. We recommend that women polish their shoes at least twice a week and alternate shoes so they don’t wear out quickly. Another good way to preserve shoes is to keep them in a shoebox and use shoe trees to maintain and preserve their shape.
Women should also have smart, well-made blouses and shirts to wear under jackets or with a business casual ensemble. Shirts should be professional looking and fit properly. Tops that are too big look sloppy and don’t flatter the silhouette. Shirts that are too tight or clinging are not appropriate for work. The best way to secure surfaces is to hang them on hangers or fold them up. You can also place dryer sheets in between the surfaces to prevent static electricity, resist wrinkles, and keep the fresh smell. Tops made of delicate materials such as silk should be dry cleaned or hand washed.
Put on the pants
Women should also pay attention to their body type and how to choose pants or pants. Petite women should opt for straight-cut pants that will beautify their figure and give them a tall look. The straight cut will keep its shape and won’t weigh down like other styles. Tall women should choose pants that are long and loose, boot-cut or wide-legged. These styles balance the figure and give the tall woman a nice shape. Capri pants may not be the most flattering style for a tall woman. Curvy women should choose pants that are tailored to their figure and are not too loose or too tight.
