It’s high Summer and just the time when you may want to review your Summer
business capsule wardrobe.
With warm sunny days, it’s easy to throw caution to the wind and start to wear more
Summer casual clothing than Business smart.
Like it or not, what you wear ALWAYS has the first word. That’s before you have the chance to
say Good Morning. Before you have had the chance to even open your mouth.
And it nearly always has the last word too. Especially if you are not appropriately dressed.
As soon as you leave home for the office or place of work, your clothing tells the world about
Women have the advantage of wearing lighter clothes than men and in more fabrics, colour
and styles. Make your choices wisely knowing that the term ‘Business casual’ still starts with
the word Business.
One of the easiest ways to add colour to your capsule wardrobe is through
your tops and accessories. Opt for the best quality you can such as silk and natural or breathable
fibres. Choose leather for shoes and handbags, briefcases etc. Technical materials are also
possible but watch out for over shiny and unnatural colours and looks.
Classic is often still the best choice.
Never under-estimate the power and influence your appearance has on others and especially in
the work place.
