One thing that I’ve learned while working for a variety of companies (including my own), is that there are some pieces that just always come through for you in an office setting. I swear by (and own) so many shirt dresses, but now that I’m older (and hopefully a bit wiser), I’m learning to invest in materials that will not only look luxurious, but last beyond your next promotion.
A combination of luxe materials, the right fit and the perfect pieces can make a would of a difference.
- Learn to splurge on pieces like silk, leather, wool and suede. But unlike leather and suede, there is no great replica.
- Find the right fit. Right above the knee, with a modest neckline (or at least one that can be made conservative with buttons or bows) and a skimming fit will always look pulled together and 9-to-5 ready.
- This is one most people don’t think about and it’s free: your posture. I’m totally guilty of slouching – I blame countless hours in front of a computer – but it instantly makes you look more confident and even makes your clothes look better on your figure.
