When it comes to business attire, adding your own personal sense of style and oomph into your outfit can make all the difference. By doing so, you will appear stylish and professional to your employer as well as anyone you may be interacting with. Keep a few goals in mind when dressing for the office:
- Keep it polished, not sloppy
- Avoid excessive accessories, less is more
- You don't get a second chance for a first impression!
This Fashionista did a fabulous job when planning her outfit. This corporate-casual look can go from office, to classes very easily without appearing too formal. Always remember to project a professional image while still staying true to your individual style. I particularly admire how this Fashionista took black and white to a new level by incorporating a green Longchamp bag to add a pop of color. These bags have been seen all over college campuses, and are a great substitute over that beat-up backpack most of us are still lugging around.
Pearls are the perfect way to accessorize without looking gaudy, or sloppy. A watch is not only ideal in order to stay punctual, but also just looks so chic. I am in love with the recent watches Swatch has come out with. Black and white doesn't have to be boring! If you're going straight from hours at the office, to class or happy hour, do like this Fashionista did and slip out of your heels and into a pair of more comfortable sandals which won't detract from the outfit at all.
