Everyone talks about the importance of "dressing for success", but from what I can gather it means a simply professional, buttoned up look while at the office. I'm all for presenting yourself appropriately in the workplace, but isn't it possible to dress for success and style?
The Cure: Successfully Stylish
A simple, professional look may start off with a well tailored pair of black plants and a white button down oxford, but leaving it at that is just so boring. Consider layering a turtleneck under your oxford as the temperatures cool down, or layering on top with a faux-fur trimmed vest, or both, keeping in a neutral palette. Give your outfit some style and set yourself apart with an animal print loafer and a shock of color with a red handbag (red is a power color of course). You still present a professional look but have personalized it. This outfit not only says professional, but also that you're well put together!
