Fashion is a revolving door that constantly brings in and fades out trends. No matter what the current style is, business attire is always a must have in every #bosslady ‘s wardrobe. Whether you are meeting up with a mentor, colleague or attending a major presentation, you want to look the part.
When I tried out for sports in middle school and high school, my father always stressed the importance of wearing the appropriate attire to make a good impression while giving yourself a leg up against the competition.
I am going to list a few basic and statement pieces you should have in your closet for your next big meeting:
Basic Pieces -
1) Slacks or dress pants
2) Closed toe shoes
3) Pencil skirt or dress (knee length or below, with a modest neckline)
Statement Pieces -
1) Blazer (in strong, neutral colors - nothing too flashy or distracting)
2) Handbag / Purse (neutral colors, organized and neat)
3) Accessories like reading glasses or gold/silver jewelry (less is more, not flashy or distracting)
For most of you professionals out there, this may be a no brainer but I believe the way we present ourselves will ultimately open doors and create opportunity. Each meeting, job interview or professional event can differ when it comes to your outfit but I wanted to give you the basics. The rest is up to you!
