WORK IT GIRL
Making decisions at work is hard enough, but the biggest work-related decision for me is trying to pick a suitable outfit for a day in the office – or for that all-important business meeting, or even interview.
When it comes to the last two scenarios in particular, always remember that first impressions count. And the best way to capture their attention as soon as you walk through the door is to wear an outfit that is suitable for work, but equally comes with a sense of allure and an extra dash of attitude.
It doesn’t matter what sector you work in, the rule is very much the same across the board – first impressions last, so make your dress, as much as your CV or presentation, speak volumes for you too.
I’ve gone for this long sleeve tuxedo dress in nude from MISSGUIDED. Nude is a great alternative to the more traditional blues, blacks and greys, but is still “business-like” enough to fit well in an office environment. And in this case, the blazered look keeps this figure-hugging dress on the right side of both “professional” and “classic”.
Heels would be my advice for footwear on this occasion – along with a suitable handbag, similar to the one that I’ve gone for in the picture.
It’s never a good idea to go heavy on the jewellery and accessories for a work meeting, but if you do want to allow yourself one extra little addition, then a choker might not be a bad choice.
