When we think of fashion, we imagine gorgeous outfits that we see on runways. Or perhaps we picture those amazing pieces that we could wear when we go out or to a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant. However, we rarely consider work attire as something incredibly stylish, but what if it doesn’t have to be this way? A successful businesswoman can look trendy even when she has a day full of meetings, with the help of just a few tips.
That is why we bring you five style secrets that all entrepreneur ladies have to know by heart.
The power of a “simple” suit
A black blazer and trousers in the same color? Sounds quite plain and unattractive, but it’s quite on the contrary. With the help of a staple set like this one, you can create exquisite outfits. Just make sure that the blazer is fitted and that the trousers are high-waisted and tailored. Then you can wear this set with an off-white asymmetrical top or a blouse with an eye-catching print. If you are about to spend the day on your feet, opt for a pair of comfy pointed toe flats. On the other hand, if you love high heels, go for brown or burgundy ones.
Moreover, you can make your go-to suit a bit cooler if you decide to wear it with a cotton tee with a fun graphic and a classic red lipstick. There are truly a limitless number of combinations that you can create with a staple black suit, which will all say that you are a woman who knows both business and fashion.
Sneakers are a must
Every entrepreneur lady should have at least a few pairs of trendy and comfortable sneakers in her wardrobe. From the classic running ones, fashionable white ones, and the popular bulky, “ugly” sneakers, to the all-time favorite Vans, sneakers are the footwear you can wear with several fashion pieces. Match them with your favorite tailored trousers and a classic white shirt or with a pencil skirt and a biker jacket.
Moreover, if your workplace dress code allows it, be trendy and opt for a denim pencil skirt that you can match with a white T-shirt and a pair of white sneakers. Throw on a pastel-colored blazer and accessorize it with a spacious leather tote bag that can carry all you work and fashion essentials.
Jeans can be smart
We tend to consider jeans as casual wear, but, if properly styled, they can look quite polished and business appropriate. Opt for high-waisted and wide-leg ones, and stay away from any kind of bejeweled or ripped jeans. You want a pair that fits you perfectly but also looks effortless and classic. Once you have your ideal jeans, move on to styling them with a monochromatic shirt and an oversized blazer. This will add that sophisticated tone to a casual piece such as jeans. An elegant watch will do just fine as your ideal accessory, and as for footwear, go for nude of black high heels.
Prints as your secret ally
Polka dots, animal, or floral can be seen as prints that you would wear in your spare time, to a brunch or a night out, but not something that you would opt to wear to work. However, any stylish entrepreneur woman will know that trendy prints can be her best friend when it comes to assembling outfits for another day full of work arrangements. An animal print skirt or a floral pussy-bow blouse will spice a regular blazer-and-structured-purse kind of a polished outfit. This kind of material will also serve as a chic way to express your own fashion style through your business attire. Moreover, they will make you stand out and look like a confident and creative woman you truly are.
Shirtdress it the combo you need
Wearing smart dresses to work is not a groundbreaking idea, but shirtdresses give it a new, modish spin. Go for midi sized ones, and decide if you prefer the ones in neutral and earthy tones or if you want to enrich your wardrobe with some chic lavender, maroon red, or even bright yellow dresses. You can wear them with a blazer or a cardigan thrown over, and styled with slingback heels. A statement belt will serve as a fashionable accessory and it can be matched with a few delicate bracelets and gold hoop earrings that will certainly make you look like a true style icon.
Finally, don’t hesitate to try these looks and use these tips when you start getting ready for work next time. You will certainly feel and look gorgeous and powerful.
