Dress to impress. More so when we know that first impressions are important when we are going into that important pitch meeting, or when we are trying to get clients on our side for the next big deal. Men always seem to have it easier when it comes to picking out professional work clothes, a well-tailored suit is always their best bet. However, because women have a wider variety of styles and designs to choose from, it is also easier for us to make mistakes.

A lady wearing a pencil skirt definitely looks more professional and serious than one who puts on an A-line skirt, especially if it ends above the knees. Besides, pencil skirts have slimming effects and it elongates our silhouette! A classic piece to own.


2. A pair of flare pants

Flare pants came back after going backstage for some time. Pair them with a fitting top so that you don’t look like the street style stars who sport oversize tops and bottoms. Put on a pair of high heels and you are ready to take on the world.


3. A blazer that suits your body shape

If you have accidentally put on your dress-down Friday outfit for an important meeting, a blazer can save the day. Even if you are wearing just T-shirt and jeans, just throw on your blazer and you will look professional and chic instantly. It is advisable to always have a spare blazer over your office chair. You know, just in case of emergencies.


4. A good quality white long sleeve top
