Corporate Dressing Ideas

If you’re a new college graduate, you will soon find yourself looking for jobs and internships. It’s time to brush up your skills and apply them in the real world. You’re ready to enter the professional life and start your career. But what about your wardrobe? When we are in college, our closets are filled with denim, jeans, hoodies, graphic t-shirts. In college, we tend to focus more on outfits that we are comfortable wearing every day and have these staples. However, as soon as we enter the professional world, it’s time to transition our wardrobe. 

Dressing professionally and appropriately as per the work culture is crucial and will also help you create a good impression. Nailing the art of corporate dressing can be challenging. However, it is not impossible. All you need to do is invest in a few pieces that will be appropriate for the office culture.

You can consider business casual as a little relaxed version of the professional corporate dressing. However, you don’t have to go completely casual with it. Business casual can be a combination of a blouse or a shirt paired with skirts, trousers, or pants. Avoid wearing denim or ripped jeans in your casual attire. You can style your solid colored blouse or striped shirts with trousers or pants.

Wear light jewellery and studs

Check your jewellery box and separate the simple and lightweight items for everyday office jewellery. You can go with simple studs and a bracelet to add that elegance to your look. Stick with the minimal pieces and avoid wearing heavy jewellery. Keep it simple to complement your overall look. 

Pick the right footwear

A simple and classic pair of stilettos will be perfect for corporate dressing. However, you can also choose from loafers, brogues, and ballet shoes. Most of us have either of these already in our wardrobe. Choose the right footwear and complete your business casual look. Avoid wearing tennis shoes. Keep it as professional as you can. 

Invest in a classic suit
