How To Promote Your Work Wardrobe

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.

  1. Learn to splurge on pieces like silk, leather, wool and suede. But unlike leather and suede, there is no great replica.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
