A presentable personality is loved and adored at office places. Shabbiness is never welcome. Apart from the formal office dressing etiquette, here are few more fashion tips from our side. Follow them and see how your presence makes a difference in the way your office peers consider you!
Corporate wear is a tricky thing. Anything gone wrong can really make the entire charm go down. A corporate skirt with a blazer is a convention. For women who like it a bit more semi casual, trousers and quarter sleeved shirts are a wonderful option. Keep an eye on the material you are buying. The softer the material, the more graceful it looks. Choose something that is lined in contrast color. Lined trousers with slightly tight-fitting shirts create magic.
The color of your wear
Pink is no more strictly the ‘Color for women’. Many women, now-a-days find black, white, grey and blue; wonderful colors for corporate. Choose the color of your office-wear carefully. Choose something that looks subtle, yet effective. Most importantly, choose colors that suit your color tone.
There is an entire code of etiquette as far as lipsticks and gloss is considered. Natural colors are a great choice for offices. They set you apart while not literally setting you apart. Avoid dark colors. Do not overdo your gloss. Glitters attract attention unduly. Use soft touches of gloss so that it just renders a moist look to the lips. Using lip shades and shines properly actually lights up your face, giving you a healthy look.
The eye shades
Using a light stroke of liner does the job. Do not use a shadow that stands stark contrast to your skin tone. Avoid bold shades, even the grey and smoky ones. Try to stick to the lighter shades, more in lines with your skin tone.
Keep it minimal. A beaded necklace, a pretty bracelet on one wrist and a sleek watch on another goes really good in offices. If possible, avoid earrings. If you must, use the simple tiny ones. It is best to get something that is in silver and diamond. The combination gives you an elegant look. Avoid junk and gold jewellery, except for the ring on your finger.
It is best to tie your hair up in a neat style. Many be a rolled bun or a pulled up pony tail? If at all you feel like keeping your locks flowing, brush your hair properly and use a mild setting agent so that your hair does not tangle up because of the wind or staying unbrushed for a long time.
Pointed pumps with medium heels are great for offices. Corporate shoes are typically completely covered up and you are required to sock your feet before stepping into your corporate shoes. Now-a-days, it is however quite a trend to wear shoes that cover jus the toes, exposing the rest of the feet. Your shoes must place you in comfort. Tight and loose, both cause bites. Since you would be spending 8-9 hours of your day with your feet inside your corporate shoes, you must take care.
Formal wear is fun. Not including fashion in them causes them to be a boring routine. Spice up your office wear a bit and find out how the air around you changes. Apart from the above stated points, you can experiment with small things like colored lenses, nail enamels, a little of eye shimmer and the like.
