I’m a big believer in the fact that making a few simple changes in anyone’s closet can make a huge difference, which is why I’m so excited to write this post this week. When it comes to styling a look for work or play, how you put it together is half of the battle. The other half is investing in quality pieces. Together, they are the key ingredients to creating the ideal outfit.
I've put together some tips to take your average workwear from predictable to eye-catching. Because to get what you want in life, you must always stand out.
Mix Neutrals Like a Pro
Forget what they taught you. Abandon how you've always seen it put together.
SWAP: Black AND Grey for Black & Cream
SWAP: Charcoal AND Light Grey for Charcoal & Brown
SWAP: Black and White for White & Cream
SWAP: Brown and Cream for Brown & Black
Add a Colorful Pump to a Staple Suit
I know you have a pair of fabulous pumps that need a little love. Now is the time. Don't be scared to incorporate more fun weekend wear into your workwear.
More personality in your clothes gives people more hints about who you are. The better they know you, the more likely they are to trust you and work with you.
And if you don't have them lying around, here's a few I've picked just for you...Click the picks to peruse.
For the Traditional
For the Creative
FOR THE ROMANTIC FOR THE POWERHOUSE
Ditch the Pants. Don a Power Dress.
Now of course, you've worn a dress to work before. You may have a very favorite that you wear over and over again or something you're sure looks good that you wear over and over again (those may be the same thing). The difference in the power dress is how you're wearing it. Instead of a cardigan or trench coat, pair it with the jacket from your power suit.
The jacket will give you an assertive presence, while the dress will add the pop of personality.
