Day #2: Cardigan Kind of Girl
This day should be about the office getting a feel of your down to Earth personality, so tone it down a bit with one of my favorite closet items, the simple yet sweet cardigan. Not only does it look office chic when accessorized well, but it’s so cozy and comfortable on your skin! To add a delicate flair, wear your hair down and style it with waves.
Day #3: Skirts are Not just for Flirts
Begin to spice things up a bit with a high waisted skirt and a tucked in blouse. To make this outfit the ultimate eye catcher, adorn your wrist with an accessory that is strong enough to stand out on its own, with minimum to no other jewelry added. I find that this look is also great to do a cat eye with, and don’t be shy to wear some 3 inch pumps, just as long as they’re conservative. Now, you’re probably thinking this look is way too sexy for work, but it’s all in how you work it. If you wear your hair up, you will automatically tone down the sexiness, and make it look more formal. Apply blush to bring out your strongest facial features, and this too, will empower your look and make you look invincible!
Day #4: Put That Dress On!
This is the day you want to shine, because you’re either wrapping up the follow up interviews and securing a position you wanted with the company, or you’re a new employee and you wanted to show them how marvelous you look at your best.
Tips for picking the right work dress
- Make sure the dress suits your body type. Pick an airy dress, or one that naturally caresses your curves. Just make sure nothing is too skin tight on you.
- Wearing too much cleavage or showing too much legs is inappropriate and extremely unprofessional. My mother always taught me to choose one or the other to show off.
- Put that hair down! But use accessories moderately, because your dress should be doing most of the talking.
Dress for Future Experiences
Depending on how well you bonded with your co-workers, you might want to hang out off of office hour; maybe head to a local restaurant, or bar. But you’re not always prepared for scenarios like this, so here are some steps to turn ordinary office outfits into evening attire.
Golden Rule: If you haven’t done this already, prepare a small makeup bag with your upmost makeup necessitates and things you should always have on you. Things like eyeliner, mascara, and your favorite lip gloss are easy to carry around, and great for touch ups and unexpected outings.
Use everything you have to work with, and start by freshening up, then put that hair down. Do a front French braid to manage your bangs if necessary. But natural has never looked better.
If you have chap stick with you, this is a great way to gloss the areas around your eyes and lips. This will attract light towards these surfaces. You can also use chap stick to help tame/style your brows.
Eyeliner can do amazing things for the night scenery. I have not met one woman who looks bad with a cat eye. So put on eyeliner and don’t forget to shade under the eyes if you want a sultry look. Then apply mascara generously to your eyelashes to give yourself a French touch.
If you have any type of candy that can tint your lips, it will last all night
Confidence is key. If you feel good inside, it will shine through.
