So I just started my summer internship and I must say that I like showing up to work looking great. I want to share with you all some tips, on how you can look stylish for work and still dress and look appropriate.How you dress for work also depends on your age, the type of work you do, your style and maybe some other factors. I must start by saying that you don’t need to be wearing something extremely tight, short or revealing to look sexy, period! I personally love seeing working women with knee length dresses or skirts which are not too tight, where they can hardly breathe and still look gorgeous and appropriate for work. I Also like seeing women in suits, they are very formal and business-like and for me personally work suits help to boost my confidence on the job. Suits for women can be skirt or pants suits. I love both! you just have to know how to put them together to look great. These suits don’t have to necessarily be boring, you can add a little touch and colours. Yes! colours are very important and knowing what colour goes with what will always give you a cutting edge. Almost any colour goes well with black but I personally like white and black, red and black, pink and black, yellow and black, orange and black combinations. I also like the colour grey, most colours work well with grey as well. Don’t be afraid to take risk with your style! even at the work place. Women in their 20s and 30s tend to be more stylish for work, likewise men. While other women at an older age prefers particular clothing for work; for example: pants suits and skirt suits. But whatever works for you, you can always try to improve your style.
My favourite clothing to wear to work is a dress, I love simple dresses! However, I personally prefer dresses with sleeves. Dresses that shows too much of your underarm is not very business-like and professional. Not to say that if you have a sleeveless dress you should put it aside but you can always wear it with a jacket for work. It is important to note what colours work for you and what goes well with what. Shoes, accessories and handbags should be carefully considered as well. Here are some combinations of clothing that are great for work and appropriate:
Remember to dress for success and don’t be afraid to take risks.
