When you enter the workplace, you have to feel confident in yourself. What you wear can have a lot to do with how you feel. Power dressing is a must for any successful individual. You don’t have to go overboard buying expensive suits or lots of items you don’t need. With a few smart choices, you could make a great impression on your employer and work colleagues. Power dressing is an art, and with the right choices, you can do this everyday. This will help boost your confidence and self-belief. Ultimately having an effect on how you do your job. Here are a few things to consider when wanting to power dress for the workplace.
Investing in a few well-fitted suits
A suit is your staple piece of uniform for the workplace. So the best advice is to make sure these fit well. You need to work out whether a slim-fit suit is more your style. Or a traditional length fits well enough. Try on a few suits from different providers and find the right fit for you. You don’t need to spend a lot of money. Some high street stores sell real quality suits these days that are designed similarly to some of the top designers. Besides, if you have the confidence, you will be able to pull off any look.
Consider investing in a few suits in different colours. This means you won’t look the same each and everyday and getting ready for work could be an enjoyable experience instead of feeling mundane.
Think about your basics
It’s key to feel comfortable in your workwear while still looking smart. So think about your basics. Your shirts are one of the things closest to your body, so consider the material you buy. Shirt collars can also feel quite tight from time to time so perhaps getting a collar extender to help you out with it.
If your workplace allows then why not deviate from the usual white shirt and try a nice pale pink or blue one instead. Sometimes a different colour can enhance the suit you are wearing. This could also mean that wearing the same suit a few time sin a week will look different just because of the shirt you have chosen.
Accessorize as much as you can
It’s not just the women who can accessorise. There are now plenty of options for me to accessorise their outfits and, in particular, their work attire. Pocket squares are increasingly becoming a fashion statement and can set the tone of your whole outfit. You could also consider bright socks and different ties to change things up.
Smart shiny shoes that are comfortable.
Finally, the one thing that will finish any outfit off is a good pair of polished shoes. Although it is worth bearing in mind that these shoes will be worn all day so make sure they are comfortable. A good tip is to wear them round the house a few times before wearing them to work.
I hope this article will inspire you to power dress in the workplace.
