When you want to look your best at the office, it’s best to stick to the classics. This is especially true if you work in a corporate setting.
While dress codes have become a little more lenient over the years, a great suit and understated yet quality accessories can still help you to get noticed in all the right ways at work.
Here are four essentials to keep in your work wardrobe at all times.
A Quality Suit
A mens suit will never go out of style when it comes to office attire. There are many stylish pant and skirt suits for women to wear to work as well. Purchase a black or navy blue suit that fits you well, and have it tailored if necessary. Pick a shirt or blouse in white, beige, pink, light blue or tan since they will pair well with a navy, dark or medium gray or black suit. Light pastels are ideal colors for women to pair with their suits, since they make your attire look a little more polished. Choose solid-color shoes in the same color family as your blouse, and select a belt and handbag that are the same color as well.
A tie clip is a great way to add a little more character to your suit if you’re a man, but women can wear them too! Both gold or silver tie clips are acceptable. Choose a clip that will bring out the color of your tie, but make sure the tie clip isn’t too large. For instance, a gold tie clip is best with a brown or tan tie, while a silver clip will work best with a gray tie.
If you purchase cuff links with your tie clip, it’s fine to wear them to the office as long as the cuff links aren’t too large or gaudy.
Few things give the impression that you’re professional and stylish than a great watch. This should serve as your main accessory when it comes to office style.
Both gold or silver watches are fine, or you can choose a watch with a leather band. You can also look for a sophisticated and stylish used watch. It’s important not to choose a watch that is too flashy, but a few decorative accents like a diamond or eye-catching trim around the face of the watch is fine.
Be sure your watch fits your wrist correctly, and have a link or two removed or added if necessary before wearing the watch to the office.
Finally, you’ve got to have an attractive and refined briefcase to complete your look.
In a corporate setting, a leather briefcase is likely the best choice, since it has more of a formal look and will go well with the suit you’ve chosen.
Pick a briefcase that is large enough to carry all your essential items (i.e. tablet, laptop) without appearing bulky. A briefcase with a shoulder strap is also best if you travel often for work or have to visit various sites during the day.
These office accessories can easily make you one of the most stylish gals at work. When you look your best, you’re more likely to feel confident and excel professionally.
