Accessorizing Your Business Suit
One of the best business wardrobe pieces is a perfectly
tailored suit. Regardless the color; black, grey, red, or beige, it is likely
the appropriate attire for a business occasion. From meeting, to presentation,
to a business dinner, the suit will always underline how serious you are about
your job, by not taking the attention away from you. There are many praising
anthems about the classical business suit, but there is no need for it to be
boring. Here are some great ways to accesorise the business suit, while keeping
a perfectly polished look.
Generally it's suggested to keep it simple and business
like. We suggest six categories to choose from; watches, earrings, scarves,
shoes, bags or briefcases, and the essential tights!
Rather than constantly checking the time on your mobile,
opt for an elegant watch. A watch is much more than just an accessory. It is a
functional piece of jewelry that shows that you care about punctuality. A quick
glance on your fabulous watch is unlikely to be disturbing, opposed to pulling
out the mobile phone. When choosing a style go for a classic appearance. Steel,
Silver, and Gold are good choices. The bracelet should be simple and elegant.
Save the glitzy ones for parties, the simpler the better. Again, you want to
underline, and not outshine your character!
Earrings (Necklaces, and
Whilst earrings have no
actual functionality, they are one of the favoured choices for accesorizing the
business suit. Pearl earrings are a safe bet for the businesswoman. There is no
need for them to be real, as long as they look neat. Choose stud earrings, or
simple drops, and avoid anything too large or dangly.
These are the two key
jewelry pieces for women wearing a suit. Should you want to add a necklace or bracelet,
make sure it’s a matching piece and ever-so simple. In this case 'less-is-more'
is really the case.
Scarves are a great choice for any season. They add
texture and colour to your outfit. Consider your choice in fabric; Light cotton
is a more relaxed statement, whereas satin and silk are sophisticated and look smart.
Here you can also experiment with color. Match it with the color of your shoes,
handbag, blouse, or belt. Stay within the color harmony of all of these items.
Classic Pumps are always a great choice for business
attire. Invest in good quality shoes with a sensible heel, as comfort is key,
and style secondary. However, if you are out to make a statement, stick to the
classic style of shoe, but in different colours or prints. Ballerina flats have
made a comeback, and many women are choosing for comfort. There are a great
number of lovely designs out there; keeping in mind that simple is best.
Bags and Briefcases
Yes, the workingwomen of today are emancipated! That
does not mean we have to always carry a briefcase though. Luckily we live in
times with a great variety of handbags. They come in all sized and compartments
possible. You know best how much you need to carry on a daily basis. Color and
material should be in unison with your shoes, scarf, belt, or blouse. That
shows that you spent thought on your outfit and care about your appearance.
In a business environment
women should wear tights when wearing skirts. A nude colour is often the best
choice, however, depending on the outfit and season, there are endless options
of colour, design and texture. An added bonus of good quality hosiery
is that they help “correcting” those little female problem areas (if you
have any that is). Tights come in different stretch and support proportions.
The higher the DEN part of a pantyhose the more support it will give you.
Medically seen it is good for your legs and the flow of your blood. So even
more reason to opt for a skirt suit!
Looking professional is the essence of wearing a
business suit, but your personal style does not need to go entirely lost.
Choose your accessories wisely, and look and feel great at work!
