Work OutfitsBy Jordana Bruner, Life2PointOh.com
A common dilemma among girls who love fashion is how to bring a little flavor into the professional attire without inadvertently making a career-limiting-move. The bottom line is that every interaction creates an impression--even the unspoken. Along with using your smarts and charm, personal branding and appearance go hand in hand in the workplace. On top of that, who wants to pay to maintain two separate wardrobes? Here are five tricks for adding personality to your work wear with pieces that work for play, too!
Smart Accessories: Nothing transforms a blazer and slacks from bland to grand like a chunky chain necklace and/or a banging pair of pumps.
Bold hues: Spring into the new season by embracing primary colors...there's just something about canary yellow that will have those around you feeling your good vibes, too.
Make use of your going-out tops: You probably have a ton of sleeveless tanks in your closet reserved for nights on the town. Try wearing them tucked into a pencil skirt or pant with a cardigan or blazer over top.
Wear what fits: Just because it's on display at J. Crew or it's the newest executive style trend doesn't mean it's right for you. What looks good on one girl can just as easily look frumptastic on another.
Polish and gloss: Nothing puts the finishing touches on an outfit quite like a red lip. If you work in a more liberal environment, rock a brightly polished manicure to make those handshakes a bit more memorable. Do you have a go-to outfit that you wear to work when you want to feel less blah? Let us know in a comment below!
