A lovely reader brought up a common wardrobe challenge for the modern businesswoman. When the weekday wardrobe is on-point, but the weekend wardrobe needs a boost, what to do? To give 2018 your best yet, stay tuned!
Balancing glamour with being taken seriously in the corporate sector can be challenging. This does not mean adopting stiff suits that diminish your figure (as I shared in “Curve Appeal”), but this wardrobe juggle can also cause a deficit in the glam department for when it is appropriate. Instead of spending money on trends and colors invest in makeup and clothing colors that best suit you (see “The Winning Wardrobe” for more details).
1. Balancing act- Your wardrobe is a visual CV/resume’. Mixing styles (such as corporate-glam) can express your intellect beyond the office- and help extend your wardrobe! Bring your A-game every weekend with sparkly accessories and shimmering separates. These subtle changes give new life to classic business pieces and your social calendar. (Wow factor: bright and dramatic makeup colours are best worn outside of the office.)
2. Adventure seeker- At the office or after work, corporate titles come with great distinction: your wardrobe should reflect that always (your title precedes you). This does not mean live in a suit, but feel free to skip risqué trends that add no value. Elegance is timeless, no need to force it against the disposable.
