Things to Consider when choosing your work outfits
Consider these 5 Options for what you can wear to work and make a mental note: that quality is that key ingredient that you should always start with, it should always be the first layer of whatever you do.
Once you start building your wardrobe with quality, also consider colors, black, dark navy, gray, white, pale and muted colors are more versatile and can last forever without ever going out of style.
Careful with the bold colors, most women say they want color but their closets say something completely different.
Finish off these work outfit ideas with quality shoes and jewelry and always remember less is more. For Outerwear, well, let’s just say that’s the piece that everyone will see you in.
Outerwear to wear to the Office that We Love
When you get to the office and take off your jacket or coat most people will only see your work outfit, but when you leave and where ever you may go afterwards, your outerwear is what most of the world will see you in.
Make it count, always select a well made jacket or coat that makes a statement of timeless style, that way you will have no need to replace it season after season.
Choose wisely with your outerwear. Your purse is also an important piece whether it is a tapestry bag, leather bag or canvas. Your bag should be the one thing in your outfit that says, ‘dreams come true.’
When you shop for your handbag make sure you put some care into it, because it says so much about you, whether you believe it or not.
