Today’s company culture is shifting to allow employees considerable flexibility in terms of when they work, where they work, and what they wear to the office. In some ways, this is a perk.
But when there’s no company dress code, you may be unsure of how to dress for work. Your appearance says a lot about who you are, and you want to be sure to give the flawless impression, especially to those in the workplace. If you have no time to shop or choose the best attire for your office then hiring a personal stylist might help you. Eliza Joanska is presenting the following tips can help you determine appropriate work attire for your situation.
Wear What Makes You Feel Confident
In modern offices you always have the option to wear clothes that make you feel confident and express your personal style. Each person has a very individualized look. Although if you are in the mix, with sneakers and jeans, and you had a presentation on the spot, they at least wouldn’t have to worry about a wrinkled shirt or stained pants. That’s really the key. Put the effort into making relaxed clothes look office-ready and you’re good to go, as long as you look and feel the part.
Polish Your Look with Easy Accessories
Some people are in the habit of wearing formal office style and don’t feel comfortable in a basic t-shirt and jeans, but still want to fit into the company culture, then dressing up a basic outfit with simple accessories. Wear a scarf, or statement necklace or pair of earrings.
Choose a nice shoe over a dress shoe
In a no-dress code office, wearing dress shoes feel too formal for the environment. Just because another worker put on flip flops, doesn’t mean that it’s acceptable work attire. Usually make sure that whatever shoes you wear to work are neat and clean.
Play with Prints and Colors for a Fun
In a friendly work environment, you shouldn’t feel bound to wearing all black or grey. Integrate prints, textures, and patterns into your look to add some brightness to a casual outfit.
Swap out your everyday denim for a pair of jeans in a soft floral print. Or, opt for khakis in a salmon color rather than beige.
First Impressions Are Still First Impressions
Note that in a low key environment showing positive emotions like joy and happiness and proper dress up always can make a good first impression. First impressions are still first impressions and you should go the extra step to make sure you look and feel your best.
If your clothing mantra is clean, tailored, and expectable it’s pretty hard to go wrong, regardless of the environment in which you work! It’s a good idea to determine what is acceptable casual work attire based on the work environment as well as your career goals.
