No matter what rung of the corporate ladder you’re on, professional dress gives you a leg up. From job interviews to business presentations, appearing capable and confident is essential. Here are some tips on how to ‘dress for success’ as you try to land the job or client that will let you retire early.
A fitted blazer is sharp at the office and works overtime on the weekends. Wear it over a button down blouse or simple shell for a sleek, professional statement. Pair it with jeans and a camisole for a buzz-worthy look off the clock.
Skirts are universally accepted business attire. The safest and most flattering lengths are either just above or just below your knee, where your legs naturally taper. Having your hem there instantly makes your legs look longer and thinner. Add a dressy top for cocktailing with style after hours.
Use accessories to illustrate your progressive thinking. Classic pumps in multi-tasking dark purple can be worn with black, brown and navy. Put your best foot forward on your time off and wear them with your favorite jeans.
