Most college girls find it extremely difficult to take the big leap from attending college lectures to spending hours in a professional environment glued to their computer screens. And to add to their distress is the total wardrobe makeover which now includes more dull greys and blacks instead of shocking pinks and reds.
Lets just get one thing straight before we even begin – Men in power dig women who take control and not teenagers in micro minis. Instead of lamenting about your age, use it to your advantage. Be the woman in charge and show them how its done!
In today’s professional world
“outfits speak louder
than words” , so it’s your one shot at building a great lasting impression and you do not want to mess thing up. If you are new and unsure, go safe by picking a well fitted pencil skirt. Pencil skirts suit almost all professional dress codes. So with a universal weapon like that all you need is the right colour to create all the difference.
If you are in a professional industry that is more on the creative side, linked to fashion, media and glamour, you can experiment with colours in refined shades.
For those belonging to conservative industries it is always better to stick to basic black, blue and grey.
Keep the length moderate to keep your look professional.
White collared tops or shirts with slightly puffed sleeves show your sense of style instead of making you look too plain and boring. Just make sure the sleeves do not overpower your outfit and sabotage the professional look you are trying to achieve.
If you are planning to put on a blazer make sure it is made of the same colour and material as that of your skirt.
Fashion yourself and strut in style with these pointed toe pumps while keeping it classy by curbing the heel height to 3 inches. Boost your get-up by picking shoes matching the colour of your waist coat.
4. Add ons:
Hand bags and pumps are all you need to complete your ensemble. Again based on your field of work you can go creative with the colours, size and designs of your bag.
For creative industries you can add accessories that go with your outfit and match your professional requirements. Whereas for a more conservative environment anything more than a simple pearl set can look oddly mismatched.
5. Hair and Make up :
Keep it simple and classy at all times. Wear your hair in a clean and simple style and keep the make up minimal with just neutral toned lip gloss and small amount of eye liner.
Avoid caked-on foundation and dark eye-liners. They always make your eyes smokey by the end of the day.
Keep yourself far away from looking passé, revamp your everyday wardrobe hassle into a pleasurable ritual and watch yourself being transformed into the everyday fashionista by incorporating one or two of the suggested outfits in your list. Do leave your comments and help us familiarize with your perspective.
