Knowing basics of dress code for women
Understanding today’s dress code for women is proving to be a real challenge for many females. It is for this reason that we therefore have taken the initiative to help you in knowing the basics of dress code for women.
First off, it is very important to understand the fact that: long gone are the days when dressing was only restricted to any black or navy knee long skirt matched with a silk blouse and matching suit jackets and high heels. Although many women are really happy that high heels have generally been accepted as part of their dressing code it is hardly a cause for celebration.
Below is an overview of some basic dressing code rules which you should seriously observe especially if you are interested in creating an impact on how you dress. They include the fact that:
Regardless of what your company employee dress code dictates, one rule remains that being neat should always suffice. In fact, neatness is by far the most important thing for any dress code, it is what forms the basis for any dress code for that matter. This being the case, it goes without say that you should completely refrain from ill fitting clothing at all costs. take note, your wardrobe does not necessarily need to be very expensive or feature the latest fashion trends, you should focus the most on making sure that you are well cared and that all of your cloths are perfectly fitting.
Another very important thing which you should seriously take into consideration is the fact that your choice of clothing should always portray a professional and relaxed image. For instance, as a woman, in case you frequently interact with different people then it is crucial that your clothing reflects well about yourself. Take for examples when you know that you are going to meet people for work or better yet if you are headed for a work meeting, it is imperative that you properly cover your body. This includes covering your cleavage, the back, your upper thighs; your shoulders etc. simply put, any sexy clothing is always deemed inappropriate when worn for formal meeting or to work.
That aside, another very important thing is the fact that makeup, hairstyle and perfume should generally be subdued. In short, it is strongly advised that you refrain from wearing too much makeup, refrain from using a very strong perfume and above all else keep away from trend setting hairstyles which might easily attract too much attention to yourself. Still on the same note, it is strongly advised that you also keep long hair strained and always away from the face.
When it comes to jewelry, the best thing to do is to keep it to a tasteful minimum. For instance, your earrings should never be larger than a nickel. Also you should only put on a single earring in each ear. Another very important thing to note is the fact that bracelets are generally frowned upon; however a single dainty bracelet is acceptable. In addition to the above, a quality watch and at least a single ring in hand are also acceptable. Remember, additional accessories such as ankle jewelry, facial piercing and more than a single necklace are all not acceptable.
In addition to all of the above, you should always wear decent skirts which have splits and hemlines and wear quality shoes preferably low heeled shoes (which should always be cleaned prior to you leaving the house). To crown it all up, comfort wins over everything fashion related. It is strongly advised that regardless the dress code for which you are interested in adhering to, you make sure that you are comfortable.
