Dress For Success

Article By Sharon Stajda

Are you a woman looking for a job? If so, check out these helpful fashion tips that will help you wear the right clothes for that job interview. Many professional women are also guilty of multiple fashion faux pas when it comes to dressing for success, without ever realizing it. The lack of good workplace fashion judgment could lead to being passed over for a job or a desired promotion.

It's true that most fashion-forward women have the belief that fashion is part of how they express themselves and also believe one should have the right to pick and chose their workplace attire. The first thing to think about before you choose an outfit for a job interview is how do you want to present yourself? Keep in mind the person interviewing you will consider what you are wearing, and how you might represent the company's reputation. So, you may want to tone down the outfit that your personality might be dictating you to wear.


Don't Get Passed Over - Button up

To Much Cleavage And To Short of Skirt Is A No No.

Showing too much cleavage at work is a mistake. Actually, it's one of the top fashion faux pas, it's at the top of the list. Studies have shown that women who dress in sexy attire in a professional environment are more often passed over for promotions. Women who dress more conservatively, as a rule, get the job. The bottom line, If you want to get ahead, keep your low cut number's for socializing after work...

Too short of a skirt can send a loud and clear message. That message could read - I am trying to compensate showing off my great legs because my office skills are a bit under pare. Keep in mind, the interviewer's attention can be drawn down to your great legs as you enter the office, instead of toward your face where it should be. Again save your mini's for after work. A good skirt length for the office is knee length or below the knee.



See-through clothes - Need I even go into it

See-through clothes - Need I even go there?

While lightweight materials such as organza, and liquid jersey look and feel cool and pretty. Think about how in the light of a staff meeting these type of materials can reveal the outlines of your legs, and much more... I suggest checking out your ensemble in a bright light of day before you walk out that door. If wearing a transparent blouse, make sure you add a cami under it or better yet, add a jacket over it. A good tip, when buying see-through clothing, only buy clothing that includes a matching lining, this is always the best option.

Tasteful Jewelry

The rule of thumb when it comes to accessories for the workplace, less is always more. Costume jewelry, when worn in bulk tends to look overdone. Even the real thing, can come off as gaudy if you wear too much jewelry. A boardroom-ready look can include one show stopper, plus one other subtle accessory. That means if you're going to put on a chunky bracelet, skip the necklace, and wear a simple pair of earrings.

Over Accessorizing - Keep your inner Gypsy out of the workplace.

Wear Sensible Shoes

Where A Simple Professional Looking Shoe

There is nothing that can make you come off as unprofessional than wearing a flip-flop open heel or opened toe type of shoe to the office. The very sound that the flip-flop shoe creates throughout the day will draw negative attention, and can actually drive co-workers bonkers. When choosing what shoes to wear to a job interview think of a simple closed toe pump, with a sensible heel.
