Follow Up…What To Wear to the Interview. “Business Casual” Fashions for Women

7 Feb


We don’t all always look like them when we wear all black to an interview……… Either because we don’t live in the 1900’s anymore or because we don’t look like supermodels.  Maybe a little of both.  Aren’t you sick of wearing all black anyway!??!  It’s 2013….today’s modern woman can get away with adding color to her business casual wardrobe because, well, because today women have had more power and say than we ever have before.  Who the f#&% says you can’t wear a little turquoise to work!?!?

Option 1:


For the girl who still loves to wear the pants in the relationship.  In the office I mean.  You can still have fun wearing pants.  Add a ruffled top under your blazer.  Or even a lavender or blue top instead of white.  It will make such a difference.  Also, make sure if you’re going to wear slacks, get a good pair of slacks that you look good in. 

Option 2:


For the petite girl.  Same rule goes for you, no extra long skirts when you’re on the shorter side.  Even with heels, if that skirt is too long, you won’t look professional or attractive.  Keep it knee length or shorter. 

Option 3:


For the girl with the classic style.  If you are a little wary of trying something new and colorful at the office, introduce some style by wearing a flattering pencil skirt with a good-fitting blouse.  Any trim on the collar will liven up your otherwise dull outfit.  Lace, color blocking, etc.  Contrast the colors in the top and skirt.  Don’t wear black on black.  Try white/black.  Or Gray/Black.  White/Gray.  (IF you’re into neutrals.)  If you’re feeling really adventurous, try a tan blouse with an olive green skirt.  It’s still in the neutral family!!! Don’t shoot me!! I didn’t say PINK!

Option 4:


For the girl who loves the little black dress.  There are some new sleek dresses in town if you haven’t heard.  They have color blocking, cut outs (in appropriate places) and graphic designs.  This style and length of dress  fits most body types. 

Option 5:


For the girl who isn’t afraid of color.  Wait, nevermind, you don’t need my help.

Option 6:


For the girl who likes mixing textures.  Lace top under a blazer with a silk skirt?  Works for me.  Mixing stripes/solids and textures is all good, as long as it works.  Just remember that.  It has to work.  If you question it…(does this go together?) it probably doesn’t. 

Option 7:


For the girl who loves blazers.  Isn’t that….all of us!?!??!?!  Get a statement piece, a blazer with enough detail to stand out but conservative enough for the workplace. 


Option 8:



For the supermodel.   (Cricket…..Cricket…..)


I hope I’ve helped someone…and never forget the #1 rule of fashion:


Only wear things that fit and are flattering to your body.

When you look good, you feel good.  And when you feel good, you work good.  And when you work good, you get paid.  $$$$$$$$$$

Keep your hustle up, ladies.  And look good while you do it.

    Very much like the first one. Although, I must say, I despise dressing up for anything. I wish we could all just wear whatever the hell we wanted (and be taken seriously), and if that meant dressing up, then so be it.

      We can wear whatever we want! We just can’t be taken seriously….but that might be a good thing. Maybe no one would try to have a serious conversation with us that day. It means that for one day people might leave us the hell alone. or make fun of us until we run home crying. either way. it might be worth it
