Dress for the job you want

I have to be the 1800th person to tell you, “Dress for the job you want”. It may sound cliché, but it’s absolutely true. Style and grace are eternal, but fashion is always changing…however, business attire have not really changed much. Over the decades, work styles have typically shared these four characteristics: somewhat conservative, flattering, tailored and comfortable. Your work styles can even be aspirational, meaning they allow you to dress for career woman that you are working to be.

What to wear to work?

Although the tasteful above the knee skirt and bare legs can work, some of you are breaking the workplace dress code. It’s key that your work attire look as if you’re coming to work, not the club. At StyleFollowsHer.com, we urge you to take pride in your appearance. First impressions are lasting impressions.

Glamour.com recently published “4 Work Style Rules Just as Relevant Now as They Were 50 Years Ago” inspired by Edith Head one of the most iconic costumers ever. The rules of style and fashion are still relevant today as they were 50 years ago.
