It is imperative for a woman to dress her best at all times. There are days when you feel like on top of the world and then there are days when you feel like doing nothing. Dressing your best not only makes you look good on the exterior but also makes you feel great on the inside and boosts your confidence on so many different levels. What are some style rules for all working women? Here’s a list of certain do’s and don’ts while power dressing.
All Hail Heels!
Invest in a great pair of comfortable pumps in black and nude to go with all your outfits. Heels not only make you feel tall and stylish but also build your confidence, improves your posture and makes sure your outfit stands out in the best possible way.

Pair your prints smartly
You will be making a huge fashion gaffe if you’re ever planning on wearing print on print. Always remember to wear prints with subtlety and nothing too attention seeking. If you’ve got some floral, stripes, polka dots or other prints going for you, remember to pair it with something subtle, something neutral so your outfit stands out for the right reasons.
Make sure to have your clothes pressed and crisp for work. Having wrinkled shirts and trousers give to negativity. Not only having a neat and pressed shirt makes you look dapper but also makes the other person take you seriously.
Every inch matters
Every inch of clothing matters while dressing to work. For women who dig midis and pencil dresses, the safest hemline is at the knee. Anything above the knee might give way for unprofessionalism. And for those sleeveless lovers, never wear spaghetti tops to the office! Sleeveless tops should extend to the edges of your shoulders. And for your neckline, it should never be four inches below your collarbone.
Formal over Informal
If your workplace is laid back and allows you to wear semi-formal attire, make sure to have a single formal element in whatever you’re wearing. For instance, if you’re planning on wearing denim to work, it necessitates something formal so team it up with a pair of brogues, crisp white shirt or a blazer.
