For some reason, people believe the phrase “professional attire” is synonymous with “boring.” But looking presentable doesn’t mean sticking to white button up blouses and gray slacks. You can still be unique and dress professionally. Take a look at this professional outfit – it’s stylish, colorful, and fit for the office. Next time you’re out shopping, look for these items to help you complete your career outfit makeover.
- Pencil Skirts: A solid black pencil skirt is a great fall back solution when you’re running out of fresh ideas, but colored pencil skirts are great for adding some fun to plain tops.
- Scarves: Tie them around the neck or drape them down your chest for a sophisticated look. If you can’t get away from monochromatic office look, throw in a multicolored scarf for a splash of color.
- Shoes: High heels are often the preferred office shoe because they’re professional and stylish. However, there’s nothing wrong with sporting comfortable flats or one inch heels. Look for pointy toed black flats – they’re the easiest way to look professional and be comfortable.
- Blazers: It’s good to always have a black blazer on hand, but next time you’re at the store, try looking for a blazer that really adds to an outfit. When paired with the right shoes, colored or pattern blazers can really pull an outfit together.
