6 Office Fashion Tips

These 6 office fashion tips will help you if you confused about what to wear to the office if you want to present yourself as a professional. For good or bad, you’re often judged by the way you look and the clothes you wear.

Although you may be just as capable as the woman wearing the polished, Giorgio Armani navy blue suit and the Anne Klein shoes, but if you’re sloppily dressed, she may end up getting the promotion while you’re relegated to the back room.

Entering The Work World After 40EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED!

Wearing The Right Attire For A Professional Look

One way to avoid this problem is to present yourself as the polished professional you are. If you want to impress the boss and your co-workers, here are 6 office fashion tips on what you should avoid.

Many women choose to go back to a career after 40 and these office fashion tips will help you avoid what you may have gotten away with years ago.

1. Logo Wear Or Anything With A Saying

The office is not the place to wear a shirt emblazoned with “Save the Pandas” on it. Although this is a noble cause, its best worn on casual Saturdays rather than hectic Mondays at work.

If a shirt has words or writing on it, keep it in your casual drawer. That way it will be clean and wrinkle free for the weekend. If you really want to show it off to your co-workers, wear it to your next super casual office picnic.

2. Anything That Shows Your Midriff

Pants have become so low slung in recent years that they reveal your tummy and belly button if not worn with an appropriate top. Exposing your belly even if it is sleek and toned isn’t going to win any promotional points at the office.

If you want to accent your waist and flat tummy, wear a stretch knit top and sleek pair of pants that cover your skin but still show off your well toned mid-section.

3. Anything That Forced You To Go Braless

The office isn’t the place for unfettered breasts. Nothing looks more unprofessional than an unrestrained pair of breasts flopping around as you move from project to project, especially if you’re wearing a form fitting or revealing top.

As a general rule, if you can’t wear a bra with a top, don’t wear it to work. The same applies to anything backless. If you’re going to wear a backless top, add a jacket or blazer to make it appropriate office fashion.

4. Heavy Cologne Or Perfume

A heavy application of perfume can be distracting to other workers. Not to mention, some people are allergic to the ingredients in perfume.

Do you really want your boss to experience a sneezing attack when you enter the room? Sometimes it can be hard to tell if you’re wearing too much perfume. Ask your husband or other family member to give their opinion before you leave the house.

5. Flip Flops Or Other Beach Wear

Even if your job is as much fun as a day on the beach, don’t advertise it by wearing flip flops or other beach gear to work. Flip flops are the ultimate casual shoe and are meant to be worn around the house and in the sand.

They’re not appropriate office fashion. Plus, they make a distracting, snapping noise when you walk and  one of the major office fashion mistakes.

Even if you’ve decorated yours with beads and think they look like designer originals, resist the temptation. Reach for a nice pair of sandals with a low heel on days you’re feeling casual.

Tattoos And Distracting Jewelry 

Although tattoos are quite common these days and are becoming more and more accepted, they’re a still not considered appropriate office fashion. If you have tattoos, make sure they’re covered up while you’re at work.

The same applies for body jewelry, nose rings, and an armful of bracelets that make a distracting noise every time you move. Keep it simple when you’re at work.

Office fashion has become more casual but if you’re serious about climbing the career ladder practice a little restraint when you dress for the office. Don’t worry! You can still let loose on the weekend.
