What Should Women Really Wear to Work

Written by: Sara Smith

Probably “I don’t know what to wear” is the most pronounced and thought sentence around the world and appropriately getting dressed for work can be included in anyone’s job
description. Most of the times, getting dressed for work is a struggle for many
women. Even if casual wear at work is becoming more and more common, it still
is quite hard to find the balance between personal style, fashion and your employer’s organizational culture.

Building a functional wardrobe is a must and the first step to achieve it is to do some research. First
of all observe what you like to wear, then check out trends and all-time
classics and try to find some common points between these two and the
environment you’ll be working in.

Here are some tips to help you figure out what you should wear to work.

Choose clothes that are fit. Wearing both too tight or too large clothes will not look good on you. Ensuring that your clothes are fit for your size will make you feel comfortable while
working and you won’t have to stop every few minutes to arrange your baggy blouse
or the too short skirt.

Follow your employer’s dress code. Take a look on company’s dress code and respect it. You will see
there what is considered appropriate and accepted inside the company, regarding

Try expressing your style without aggressing those around you. We know your electric green new bag
rocks but it might distract your colleagues and change their (and your) focus
from work. These shocking colors are, in visual language, similar to screaming
in the classic one.

Have a neat appearance- dry and brush your hair, clean and cut your nails, brush your teeth, take a shower, etc. These are basic care activities and they show self-respect. Avoid
sophisticated hairstyling, shocking hair accessories.
Shoes are important to choose comfortable shoes, according to the season and work environment. Pay attention to what you wear during summer because many companies have a “no visible toes” rule in their dress code. During cold seasons, choose the most comfortable work boots because you’ll be spending a lot of time wearing them.

Strong perfume or cologne is a big no-no and is similar to neon accessories situation. Anything that anyone else can smell is not appropriate, both if the smell is pleasant or

Avoid aggressive sexy clothing: plunging necklines, extremely tall heels, short skirts that can
expose your under-garments and sometimes make compromises. If you chose a
V-neck blouse, then the other parts of the body should be covered. What’s too
much is too much.

Over-accessorizing is nor practical, nor comfortable. It might be hard to use the mouse or the keyboard with too many large bracelets. Another important aspect is that the jewelry
pieces you’re wearing should not make noise, it’s distracting and

Now that we have seen some guideline about what to wear at work, let’s see some all-time favorite clothing pieces, perfect to be worn at work:

The neutral color suit that perfect fits you are perfect to wear at work. The suit should fit your body perfectly, it should not be too large, not too small, the shoulder seams should
be right where your shoulders are and when you button the jacket, it should be
flat on your belly). Simple-shaped, classic dresses in neutral colors (navy,
black, nude, burgundy or dark green) can be easily assorted with blazers and light
jackets, perfectly fitting together for a work environment.

Pencil skirts and dress pants are also amazing options for clothing to wear at work. Pencil skirts work very well with discreet blouses and the outfit can be completed with a chic
blazer and if pencil skirts aren’t actually your type, you can opt for dress pants: comfortable and fashionable, they can also be assorted with blazers and jackets in beautiful combinations.

Sweaters, shirts, and blouses are always good choices for wearing at work when they have the simple design,neutral colors and fit with the other pieces of the outfit.

Depending on the work environment you have been blessed with, and the degree of casual-ness they show, you can also wear jeans (but not too tight), jackets and blouses in strong colors,
statement pieces of jewelry. Let’s not forget about the shoes: always choose the most comfortable option you have, and pay attention to how it works with the clothes and the accessories you have already chosen. During summer, choose the most comfortable pair of sandals (if accepted by company’s dress code) and in cold seasons choose the most comfortable pair of boots or shoes (your feet also have to feel warm).

Always follow your comfort and your style, the colors you love and try making creative
combinations with them. Don’t forget to avoid shocking pieces and colors and
pay attention to the decency of your outfits.
