Style basics for the working woman

In today’s world, women excel in the business place. From executive level business women to women who are small business owners, every woman can put her best face forward with the  appropriate workplace clothing–  Here are some basics you need.


*The confidence-building suit. A an up-to-date, well-fitting suit flatters your shape. And it offers endless style options: Wear blazer and pants with a blouse for that impress-everyone meeting; pair the pants with a crisp white shirt for everyday; or add a camisole to the suit (along with a sexy pair of heels) for that evening event.

*A stylish pair of flats Give your feet a well-deserved break; try a knockout color like red. Heels are not  the only way to fancy up your feet. From preppy-casual to peep-toe sexy, you’ll love the way flats look with jeans, dresses and trousers.

*The sophisticated white shirt Think of a white button-up blouse as your upper body’s version of black pants—it’s versatile enough to wear anywhere, with almost anything. Pair it with your favorite pants for work.

*A tank top.  Invest in a classic style in a statement-making, vibrant color to brighten up your wardrobe. The fabric is luxurious and the look is versatile—you can wear it to the office, for an evening on the town.

*A slimming pencil skirt.  From midthigh to knee-length  or longer, a pencil  skirt will take you from work to dinner. It is  always feminine and fun.

*High-Heel Shoes  -A pair of classic black high-heel shoes are timeless, but don’t forget to be adventurous with seasonal colors. Impractical but sexy, a pair of ultra-high heels is a must-have to make any woman feel feminine and poised.

*Jewelry you love Simple but striking, jewelry can give everyday basics new life. Finish off any look, for example, with a pair of simple gold hoops, or opt for a large, chunky necklace (and skip the earrings altogether); either of these will instantly add glamour.

*An all-around tote.  Pick a roomy, sleek, well-structured leather bag. You’ll look put-together, and it will keep your papers, cell phone, datebook, makeup and more in place.

*A signature scarf.  It’s a piece that can add instant style impact to a suit or a crisp white shirt. Pick one in a bold color or vivid pattern; tie it onto your neck or purse handle, or twist it and wear it as a simple, but vibrant, belt.
