What does your career wardrobe look like?
Did you know you need to have one?
Most importantly a Career Wardrobe, including your office attire, is how you feel in the clothes. The feelings of empowerment, confidence, beauty and grace should be present. Specifically, here are some attributes you can look for that will naturally bring about this stately and pleasant presence to others.
Blouses and dresses should have a V shaped neckline and preferably a strong collar, as this conveys power and authority. A blouse or dress should be figure flattering, however not tight. Décolletage should be complimentary with no reveal. Colors are very important choice. Colors that imbue authority are blue, black, gray (medium to dark), browns and white. Finally consider, a career wardrobe is one that will allow you to easily mix and match pieces of apparel. These pieces will have the ability to travel well, with minimal fuss upon arrival to your destination. They will have some stretch to be comfortable to the touch.
The number of pieces are relatively few and can even be incorporated into your office attire - three pair of trousers, two skirts, two blazers (dress jackets), and three blouses are all that is needed to keep a thriving style presence in the workplace that matches the image you want to convey and succesfully!
