Knowing what your style statement is can provide you with an important bridge between your outer and inner self. If you see the way you feel, you feel confident no matter the situation. You will be able to convey who you are both in social situations and at work.
Let’s take a look at some of the styles you might feel connected to.
Ageless or classic
Some women always look stylish and relevant regardless of age. Their style statement is whatever works for them, and they stick to whatever is the latest trend. So how do you dress for work when your style statement is ageless or classic?
The first thing is to wear individual cuts and combinations that never go out of style: A black turtleneck top with a contrasting scarf, straight pants, and ankle-high boots. You should wear colors that accentuate your natural complexion but don’t look like you’re trying too hard.
A classic collared shirt in shades of white, soft blue, and baby pink, the occasional red, paired with dark trousers, can make a classic western style statement. Kurtis, without much design, in one or two tone palette, made it this way. Sarees with small prints and in classic red, black, shades of white, blue, or green look perfect for a formal business meeting or conference.
Whether western or Indian, if you like the classic look, bring it out by wearing clothes that fit. Sloppy, baggy, or ill-fitting clothes shouldn’t be in your wardrobe. Shoes and handbag must match; they don’t need to be designer brands, but they need to be high quality
The vibrant fashion style is for women who like to be the center of attention; her clothes, accessories and makeup adhere to an energetic style and convey a love of color. If this speaks to you, your wardrobe should include clothes with asymmetrical patterns and textures.
Passionate style followers know that the right balance is essential for a look that is not tacky but eye-catching. The basic pieces, tops or blouses, will be made of light fabrics in pastel tones. Some ways to achieve this eye-popping look are by wearing a classic white shirt with dotted trousers or a pretty lacy top with a colorful floral skirt.
Indian clothing is perfect for this style of dress; You can choose kurtis, duppatas or sarees decorated with mirror work of kutch, kashidakari or zardozi embroidery. This look is best when complemented by several silver jewelry. A delicate chain with a silver pendant, perhaps with some filigree work or semi-precious stones, will complete the lively look with just a touch of sophistication.
You can look your best with eyes rimmed with black kohl and bindi. Since this is for work, you should avoid colors or stones in the bindi; but big bindis look very attractive if your forehead is not too small.
With the workplace becoming less formal, you may prefer a casual style. Casual style means comfort, but it doesn’t mean dress without charm. If you like casual clothes, you may not like clothes that are bright, exotic, and eye-catching.
The arrangement tends to be neat but simple. Stylish khakis or capris go well with a knit top or t-shirt with a smart blazer. A pair of comfortable heels and a tote bag; a simple chain and ear loops complete the look. The choice of clothing allows you to dress quickly but still chic.
Cotton mid-thigh kurtis with fitted trousers look great if you prefer ethnic wear. Casual never means unkempt; both tops and pants should not fade and should be ironed neatly. A string of pearls, not too long, can add a touch of understated elegance to any casual outfit.
If you like to bike to work or work out in the middle of the workday, athleisure clothing might be for you. Many brands have started making loose, lightweight, tunic-style tops that can be worn to the gym but are equally appropriate outside.
There is pants in a breathable, stretchable fabric that can be worn in a professional setting. You can choose a tweed or herringbone pattern that looks like the fabric used for more formal pants. It can be easily dressed up with a casual blazer, some light jewelery like a silver pendant, and floral scarf.
The world of fashion for professional women today is filled with every choice of style and trend. It would be better if you take advantage of it and not limit yourself. What you have to remember is to avoid anything that is too sheer, too tight, or low-cut.
Choose clothes that suit you style statement, wear natural-looking makeup to bring out your best facial features, add some silver jewelry and walk with confidence. Everyone will know you mean business.
