Ladies – Know how to dress for success!
When it comes to clothing women have a real challenge when it comes to what is appropriate to wear in the workplace. We hope this listing offers some help:
Dress: Skirted suit, dress or pants. Nothing, but nothing is pinned. Clean, pressed, lint free, no tears or stains. Make sure hems are even.
Shoes: No rundown heels. Polished or brushed. Should be as dark or darker than the darkest 2/3 of outfit. Shoes are recommended to be closed toes unless dress codes allow more informal footwear.
Hose: When worn, make sure no runs, skin tone is recommended for no hose look. Try to avoid lines from blouses and undergarments.
Glasses: Should blend and be as wide as the widest part of your face.
Handbag: Leather, coordinated with outfit. Keep it organized.
Jewelry: Not too much, small earrings, functional, adds to outfit.
Fragrance: A scent, not an odor. Light and delicate for the office.
And last but not least: Be sure to look at good from the back as the front. (I swear this is on the list.)
When combined with appropriate personal grooming, clothes can make (in this case) the woman. If you have questions about business attire and garment care, please call us at 904-745-5010. We are here to help you look your best.
