It can often be difficult to know how to dress as a business woman. Whereas men have it relatively easy with a shirt and suit combination, women have a lot more to consider. Women often find themselves wondering how smart is too smart? Can I wear this outfit in a workplace environment? How do I dress to impress in a meeting? In short, finding an outfit that is equal parts stylish and appropriate for work can be tough.
Dressing Well As A Business Woman
It is entirely possible to be elegant, serious and fashionable all at the same time when at work, it’s just a case of finding some wardrobe staples that allow you to do so. Here are the ultimate items every business women needs to invest in:
A Smart and Stylish Dress
The best place to start when styling yourself as a business woman is to invest in a smart and stylish dress, like this Dolce & Gabbana strapless printed midi dress. Dresses like this are perfect for the workplace as they cover all the right parts of your body – after all, nobody wants to have everything on show when you’re wanting to be taken seriously by colleagues – but in a way that flatters your feminine figure. Plus, with a printed pattern it’s an option that’s much more on trend that a standard block colour alternative. This can be teamed with a smart jacket or blazer during the winter months.
A Fabulous Black Handbag
As every business women knows, a lot can be said about a person by their handbag. Investing in a handbag is recommended for any women at work; not only does it ensure you’ve got a trusty bag to use on a daily basis, you can guarantee it’ll go with every outfit. This Fendi handbag highlights how black doesn’t have to be boring, thanks to the colorful detailing.
Black, Heeled Pumps
Let’s face it, a pair of great heels makes anybody feel as though they can take on the world and that’s why they’re perfect for work. Black heeled pumps are comfortable enough to wear throughout the long work day and colour wise they can be teamed with everything. This Gianvito Rossi pair highlight just how versatile the style is. Plus, there’s a cute tie to add a little something extra to your outfit.
Statement accessories can take an outfit from drab to fab, just like these Oscar de la Renta earrings. Not only do accessories allow you to add a hint of personality to your business outfit, but they’re a good way to incorporate recent trends. Chunky necklaces and large rings also work well.
