STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Bold And The Professional

Style Advice of the Week

Statement accessories transform outfits by bringing life and personality to the look. When it comes to dressing professionally, people often reach for their predictable business attire. Adding bold jewelry or sporting embellished garments (or both!) adds an appropriate amount of pizzazz acceptable for presentations or the workplace.

This Fashionista is presentation-ready in a sharp, studded blazer coupled with a bold, robin egg blue necklace. The gold studs on her sleeves add a chic touch to her oversized blazer, resulting in a polished look. She amps up her basic tank with a flash of pastel, bringing an unexpected burst of color into her neutral attire. To balance out the edgy elements, she wears a pair of dark skinny jeans and classic black flats.

In terms of beauty, this Fashionista keeps things professional by wearing her hair straight and parted to the side. If wearing your hair down is distracting for you, try a loose chignon bun with face-framing strands to help soften the hairstyle. A classic pony is also a great go-to— wrap strands of hair around base of the tail to hide the elastic. If you decide to wear your hair down like this Fashionista, experiment with a skinny headband for a simple, yet stylish, touch.

Whether you have an interview, a presentation, a meeting or any other occasion calling for professionalism, seek out statement accessories. Jewelry is always a great go-to because not only does it add style, but it’s also an awesome conversation starter. Anyone can pair a white blouse with a black blazer and pencil skirt—how will you spice up the professional uniform?
