Though every workplace is different and so is the environment, but there are certain simple tips which one can follow to dress smartly to office.
• It is better to dress simple and sober for a professional environment. However, it is also necessary to be trendy and comfortable at the same time. Pencil skirts and A-line skirts are the most appropriate apparel options. You can pair them up with a formal shirt. Avoid wearing colourful, patterned, loud prints, neon colour attires. Work dresses should not be too tight, too short, or overly revealing in general.
• It is better to wear no jewellery at all than to wear too much jewellery. Keep earrings small and simple. Necklaces should not dangle, single-strand necklace would be right. Jewellery should not be noisy. Pearls can do wonders.
• A medium-sized leather bag is a necessity in the workplace. It's best to buy a handbag and clutch bags in a neutral colour, like black, or brown that does not show stains easily. A purse should be small, coordinate with your shoe colour yet easy to open and carry.
• Both flats and heels are appropriate for the workday, but a closed toed pair of leather black pumps or ballet flats are essential to a professional woman's wardrobe. Up to three inches is good to go for both comfort and maintaining professionalism.
• Nails should be clean, and trimmed or sculpted. Say no to unusual or shocking nail colours. Nail art and nail jewels are not acceptable at any workplace.
