Professional Dressing Tips To Ensure Undivided Attention

1. Look For The Perfect Fit

Ill-fitted clothes give an impression of lethargy. It showcases that you have not made enough effort to work on your wardrobe and immediately makes you look unimportant. A perfectly fitted attire accentuates all of your fine features and the message of power will be clear.

Be responsible for its upkeep and keep them polished. The right shoes elevate body posture and elicit professional seriousness.  

3. Pay Attention To Your Bag

Your bag must make an impact. Choose one that is fashionable, functional and professional. a trendy satchel or a leather tote makes one look dapper and classy. It reigns supremacy if the quality, utility and craftsmanship are up to the mark. A professional bag is a timeless addition to any working woman’s wardrobe who wants to emit power.

4. Don't Over-Accessorise

Your presence should make the noise and not your jewellery. A pro-tip is to invest in a detachable collar which is a great accessory to look serious and professional. 

5. Wear Rich Colours To Portray Authority

Colours have the power to eliminate all reasons that people may have for being dismissive. Don chic, rich hues and avoid clothes that are too flashy. It can be distracting and people around may not want to trust you with serious work.
