Looking good is important not just for how you feel about yourself, but for how you present yourself to the world. But sometimes it can be tough to feel confident about your appearance.The term dress for success was made for the workplace and tells us that if we want to get ahead in our careers that looking good is an important part of that.
Looking good at work doesn't have to mean wearing designer clothes or being polished and perfect. In fact, there are ways to look good no matter what your style. With a few simple tips, you can maximise your appearance both at work and at home and make sure you always look and feel your best.
Keep on top of your laundry and consider using a laundry scent booster to make your clothes smell extra fresh for longer. If you iron your clothes for work, then make sure that your iron is in tip top condition and if it isn’t then consider descaling or degreasing it or even replacing it with a newer model. Check out our range of iron descalers and degreasers here.
Invest in clothes that fit well. No one looks good in clothes that are too tight or too big. And, of course, clothes that are too small will only accentuate your flaws. Make sure to go shopping for clothes that fit your figure well and compliment your features.
Even though you don’t need to wear matching clothes all the time, wear comfortable clothing that fits well and makes you feel confident. You'll be more likely to wear what looks good on you, and you'll also be less likely to fuss with your appearance in an effort to look good. This will help to create a cohesive look and feel, and it will also make you look more professional. Shop around for a few outfits which you can mix and match to create numerous different styles. Suits with different tops and even mix and match trousers and jackets can be a great way to enhance your look.
Make sure your hair is styled well and properly arranged, and avoid wearing too much product or styling it too harshly. A sleek bob or ponytail is a popular style for ladies at work, and can help you avoid looking too busy or stressed.
Accessorise well. A great way to add visual interest to an outfit is by accessorising with jewellery and accessories. A simple necklace can make all the difference, and adding some colourful earrings can really brighten up your look. A great way to add an extra layer of sophistication to your look is by accessorising appropriately. Try adding a belt to update your outfit and make you look more polished.
Apply makeup carefully and sparingly. If you're using blush, powder, or lipstick, be sure to use the right colours and amounts to achieve the desired look without appearing overdone.
Balance classic and trendy looks. It's important to have both classic and trendy looks in your wardrobe so that you can be versatile and look good in any situation.
When meeting clients or attending formal events, dress conservatively in order to project a professional image. However, don't be afraid to mix things up on casual days by wearing more comfortable clothing.
The office can be a stressful place, but there's nothing wrong with looking good while you're dealing with the stress!
