Spending on wardrobe staples and knowing some vital ways to office attire can take most of the tension out of looking professional at work and it can also save you planning time.
Knowing what and what not to wear in the office saves you a lot of stress and lets you dress with ease.
- Dress for your own workplace: Tweak your fashion rules to that of your work setting. Know what works for your office environment and what does not. Some offices allow more creative and colourful dressing while others prefer it subdued and mild.
- Pay attention to details: Make hairstyles that are easy to style throughout the month which ultimately cuts down on your time in the morning. If you are on a low cut, that already saves you time and effort.
- Do what you can to stay comfortable: You should wear outfits that are comfortable for you and your body type. Pulling and adjusting your clothes every time in the workplace is a NO-NO.
- Accessorize: Tap into your own personal style with jewellery, scarves, belts and bags but make sure you do not go overboard with it
- Make sure your clothes are in good shape: Take the few minutes needed to iron your work clothes when necessary. If you find any stains on your clothes, tackle them immediately.
- Do not wear casual clothes: Unless of course, your office permits ripped jeans, wearing hoodies. And even if they do, try to pair your ripped jeans with a blazer or sweater
- Hosieries are good things: Do not ignore or overlook them, instead fix them into your wardrobe. Stock up on flesh-toned stockings for a smooth and professional look.
- To wear heels or not to: Do not wear heels unless you really want to. You can try out closed-toe, loafer-style and pointy-toe flats or better still, invest in pumps with a thicker heel for a more casual and comfortable feel if your office insists on heels.
- Don’t Overdress: Dress neatly and professionally but do not go overboard with your dressing. If everyone is dressing business casual, do not dress too formally. Do not do too much where it is not necessary.
- Be prepared: Emergencies of any sort can happen at any time which is why you need to stock up your desk dresser with an extra blouse, lip balm, deodorant, hair elastic, toilet rolls, sanitary towels, hand sanitizer, hand creams and the list is endless.
