Skirts for a Smart Professional Look

Every woman loves to wear skirts. Skirts make up for most a woman’s wardrobe because they can be worn both as a part of their business apparel as well as for a casual day out. A skirt enhances a woman’s beauty and innocence in its own way. Skirts make women look more stylish and professional when worn to office. But it is of utmost importance that you choose one that lends you a smart yet elegant look. Skirts are very versatile as they can be worn with a variety of complementary clothing like jackets, shirts, blouses or sweaters. You can either select a casual or conservative skirt to wear as a part of your office attire. They both are good choices when it comes to office clothing, but you need to make sure that its color and style is in tune with your office dress code.

Although knee length skirts are most popular among women, formal long skirts are great to be worn in winter. Ideally the material should be cotton, wool or twill, and a hint of pleats and ruffles give it a great feminine touch. Most of the women are fond of A-line skirts as they accentuate the waistline very nicely. Pencil skirts are the most fashionable among women’s business apparel. They go well with all body types starting from the curvaceous to the very slim. These skirts go straight down the waist and taper at the knees, thus highlighting the curves of the body. Casual skirts made of linen, wool, khaki or cotton are very comfortable for a full-day wear and at the same time look professional enough to be worn to office.

No matter which skirt you choose to wear, do remember to take the comfort factor into account.

The Right Apparel to Wear to Office Parties- Part I

We know by now the basic rules we must play by when it comes to dressing up for work and office. There are ample choices in the realm of business apparels or corporate wear. Another sensitive issue which requires attention and cannot be ignored is what to wear to office parties. It is important to attend these parties as though it involves social interaction, it is for the sake of your business and professional life. Also, you are invited to a party which would involve your office colleagues, superiors and sometimes even clients. So, the impression you create is very important. A small slip here and it can act as a catalyst in affecting your professional image negatively.

So when it comes to party apparels which are right to be worn at office parties you must abide by certain rules. You must not wear clothes which you would generally wear when partying with close friends. The clothes you wear to your office party should not be vibrantly colorful and when it comes to colors- black, brown and dark blues are the safest.

Sporting smart casuals which do not reveal much and at the same time do not make you appear uptight and severe are the right options. You should not wear overtly expensive clothes as they might create a wrong impression. Also, if it your boss who is throwing the party, you must take care not to appear more dressy than him/her. You should look relaxed but not too flashy. The safe bet for women is hemlines which are not too short and tunics or blouses which do not reveal more than they conceal. For men, they should avoid tees with weird and outrageous messages on them and should stick to jeans or casual trousers.

Corporate Casuals for Women Should Not Be Taken ‘Too Casually’

When it comes to women’s work wear, most women as well as corporate houses prefer pant suits or skirt suits in dark hues. But, with time, there is a new genre of business clothing which has emerged to become very popular with the ‘fashionista’ in the corporate world. Many women prefer corporate casuals to strict business clothes when they are attending job interviews, trade fairs, career fairs and on their daily work routines. The main reason behind this is the comfort factor. Corporate casuals help a woman look trendy, professional and she does not have to compromise on the feminine factor.

Tailored shirts, blouses which are made to order, skirts which are either knee length or go just below it, dressy pants or slacks, dresses which are two pieces and can be complimented with a jacket, the list is endless. A woman is spoilt for choice when it comes to corporate casual work wear. But then what should be avoided to work?? Anything which shows too much skin, deep necklines, casual jeans, shorts, clothes which are too high on the ‘bling’ quotient should all be avoided. Miniskirts and micro miniskirts not only make the wearer uncomfortable, they do not professional either. Sleeveless dresses and blouses are acceptable, but noodle straps look too casual. Sequined outfits also look too flashy and are good for office parties but not when one is attending a seminar or meet.

When it comes to accessories, women cannot afford to ignore the fact that the right accessories can make or break a look. High-heel shoes can be worn if one is comfortable in them. Flip flops and worn out sneakers are something which should be totally avoided. Bags should not be too flashy and vibrant as they can distract anyone. Even the jewelry should be kept chic and minimum. No long necklaces and chandelier earrings, please! Whether you prefer strict business clothing or corporate casuals, your corporate apparel should define your personal style and offer maximum comfort possible.

Organic Clothing- Going Green with Your Corporate Apparel

Organic corporate apparel is the best way to show how aware and responsible you are towards the environment. Organic fabric includes hemp, silk, wool and cotton. Whether or not the fabric is organic in the truest sense depends on how the fiber has been processed, produced, dyed, and whether the end garment has been subjected through any procedure which involved toxic chemicals.

It is also a fact that organic fabrics are more expensive than the conventional ones and so if you choose to ‘go green’, you must be prepared to spend. It is also true value for money as the corporate apparel and work-wear which is made out of organic fabrics is free from any pesticides and chemicals and hence reduces your exposure to harmful and toxic chemicals.

To know what you are buying is indeed organic clothing or no, you must check the label to know whether it meets the USDA Standards. Today, all kinds of corporate wear from casuals to formals are available which are not only organic but look good, smart and impeccable. Oxford shirts, hoodies, Polos, skirts, blouses, trousers, jackets, etc all come in this range of organic corporate wear.

Today, eco-fashion has become a rage in itself. Some companies and organizations have recognized their responsibilities towards the environment as well as the society and have started adopting organic wear as their customized corporate wear. They have understood how this can not only help their workforce, but also their public image. Opting for fabrics which are organic and natural is not only ‘in’ but also the call of the times!
