Fashion has a depth and you need to show seamlessly balance in your professional and personal life. There is much research has been conducted that reveals how you dress up directly affect your performance. You need to dress formally to scattered full authoritative, competent, and trustworthy vibes.
Minion, you must remember what you wear, influenced your concentration and involvement in work.
Now, you imagine how you look after wearing a cozy t-shirt, comfy slacks, and a sleeper.
Not good…at all…. you do not want to look like the guy that left his drive in the office.
As clothing can affect the functions of the brain, so you must take it very seriously. Here, I will share some tips for men and women both, like how to dress well at home during your official timing.
Men and women both can opt for different types of clothing options. Before you find your comfortability and chucked that dress from your wardrobe, keep one thing in your mind, “Do not dress up what your position is, dress up as what you want to be”.
Now, I’ll stop clattering, and reveals the best options which can wear by you.
For men or women, if you are a business professional and have to attend board meetings, or dealing with clients, you must ready as ‘Business Professionals’.
For women, carry pants or a modest skirt, a matching jacket, a button-up shirt or equivalent blouse to glorify your look. Add closed-toe plain heels as it makes you feel confident while communicating with your new clients.
Pants and jackets must be of the same color and that could be black, navy blue or charcoal grey. Patterns should be muted. Since its too hot, and you do not want to carry a jacket. It is ok. You can wear a long sleeve shirt of neutral colors. Do not wear loud colors. Also, opt skirts in place of pants, make sure they have a proper fitting, as flowing skirts are more casual to business casual.
Now the same goes for men…. no….I’m not saying men to wear a skirt…. you can opt short suits. The tie can also be carried with your suit.
Rule of Thumb: If You Have to Question an Item, Do Not Wear It
If you are in a position where you have to attend very fewer meetings, you still have to carry the standards expected by your firm. These people can go to ‘Business Ready’. There is quite a relaxation to your corporate uniform, swap the long sleeve business shirt for short-sleeve chambray or oxford. Women can wear a fancy blouse or shirt of light color with muted patterns. You can go for sneakers as your representatives are quite less. If in case, you need to attend any video conferencing, you do not need to leave your home desk, just jump on a video conference call.
Now, the last options are to opt ‘Business Casual’ where men are allowed to wear a t-shirt or shirts with Denim or pants with comfortable footwear (not a sleeper), and women can go with top/blouse/shirts with Denim or skirts.
You must realize in every state that you get the opportunity to work one from your favorite beanbag, make sure you do not lose the professionalism you achieved from your very hard work. Set the boundaries by wearing professional clothing to separate professional life with personal life.
