Look Professional Without Looking Boring – Women’s Style Tips Summer 2016

Look Professional Without Looking Boring – Women’s Style Tips Summer 2016

Historically the more plain the piece of clothing, the better it is for business. But let’s face it – plain gets boring. So here are some women’s style tips to bring back some life into your professional wardrobe without looking boring.

BASICS WITH DETAILS When you take basic silhouettes and add some design details to them, the look still looks professional but it also looks interesting. A navy blue tank or white skirt with asymmetric details gives the garment instant style and a fashionable look for today’s professional woman. Mixing trendy edges with classic silhouettes.

THE LOOK FOR LESS Looking professional also doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you get tired of your clothes easily, you won’t want to purchase “investment pieces” but rather staple pieces that easily mix and match so that when you get tired of them, you don’t feel guilty about tossing them. That’s why we selected this wardrobe capsule from Black House White Market. The looks are professional yet fashionable – taking the basics and enhancing them.

THE DETAILS IN THE LINES Not only did we select garments that have decorative design details, inside seam lines can also make a garment look more interesting like this belted tweed fit and flare dress that we selected. The texture and the design lines make it look more interesting so that you’re not just looking at another plain dress. Don’t forget to complete your looks with accessories. For professional women’s attire keep it simple.

ADD CURRENT TRENDS IN YOUR ACCESSORIES Shoes and handbags can always change the look of an outfit. While we are a fan of the Chloe saddle bag, this white saddle bag option at Black House White Market is affordable. Pair these looks with chambray d’orsay heels rather than the traditional black heels to add a pop of au current. And voila, your look is finished.

Valentine’s Day Style Tips for Her

For Valentine’s Day, get dressed up for a special night out on the town.  Whether you are single or in a relationship, go out for dinner and / or drinks.  Follow our personal stylist’s style tips and look like a glamorous knock out.

Valentine’s Day Style Tips for Her:

Start with Color.  Go pink, red, or white depending on what message you want to communicate.  Pink is sweet.  Red is vibrant!  And white is elegant and pure.  

Wear a Dress.  Worn to the knee for modesty or as a short mini to look sexy.  Pick a dress that flatters your body type – an hourglass silhouette looks best on all shapes and sizes. 

Select the Shoes.  Go high and strappy.  Men can’t resist a woman in sexy heels.  Leave the peep toes for the office.  Although if you’re going for drinks and want to look sexy and glam, go for it!

Then the Bag.  As it’s a night out on the town, select a clutch and leave your big, fashion “it” bags at home.   

And Accessorize.  An outfit is not complete without the proper jewelry.  Perhaps you’ll wear the new necklace or earrings your partner gives you on this special day (hint, hint – gentlemen).  However if you’re not that fortunate, select something simple, tasteful, and classy – diamonds or CZ are a girl’s best friend! 

Coordinate your Makeup.  If you decide on a red dress, go with red lips.  If you go pink or white, go nude on the lips, darker on the cheeks and smoky on the eye. 

Finish with Fragrance.  So do you want to smell like sugar and spice or naughty and nice?  Selecting the proper fragrance is always a personal preference.  Our personal favorite, which men seem to love too, is Dior Addict II or Versace Bright Crystal.

Add Some Spice. Sexy lingerie always peaks a man’s interest especially on this special day.  So spice it up with a red or pink lacy surprise.
