Not sure how to style them? Breathe easy, business-savvy beauties. Here are three ways to rock ’em both in and out of the office…
Look 1: Launch Party Pretty
For a polished-yet-lively look that caters to creative professionals, take tips from ModStylist Jess! Swap solid tights for ones in a playful print, and add funky accessories such as the String of Sparklers Headband, a chain-link bag, and attachable belt tassel. Finally, a neutral pair of shoes with neon accents like the High Classy Heel can be worn day to night, as its edgy color is subtle enough for daytime meetings.
Look 2: Margaritas with Work Pals
Cocktails with coworkers is your chance to: a) Show you’re type of employee who’s able to maintain an air of professionalism even after the clock hits five, and b) Give your team a peek of your personal taste. Nicole pairs the sheer Feather Your Best Top with a solid blouse, fitted pencil skirt, oversized clutch, and the Statement of the Art Necklace for a good time with the gang.
Look 3: Meet & Greets
Mandy makes a friendly first impression as she mingles with other folks from other start-ups by hanging up her blazer and handbag to keep her palms free for collecting business cards. By adding the A Kiss of Glam Lipstick in Red to her pout and dressing up her floral frock with the Statement of the Art Necklace, she’s successfully transitioned into an ensemble that makes her appear approachable and put-together.
Don’t forget: Just because your job requires you to dress conservatively doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with fashion within office walls. You’ll feel at ease if you’re comfortable in your clothes, resulting in a more confident you that both peers and managers will pick up on!
