How To Successfully Wear A Women's Suit To Work
If you work in a formal business environment, or you attend a lot of meetings and presentations, you'll need the right formal business wear. Let’s take a closer look at wearing a woman's suit to work and how you can look your best while always being stylishly formal.
A woman's suit is a very popular outfit and if worn correctly, it's suitable for a variety of events. With so many styles and accessories available, you can dress perfectly for any occasion. Wearing a woman's suit to work can be a great fit if you work in a corporate environment - especially one where a professional image is always required. Women's suits can be perfectly tailored to meet a variety of body types, and this means that you can add a few good-looking suits to your closet.
In the 1970s, women used to wear huge bows in place of neckties, and soon started to wear enormous shoulder padding. This was to exaggerate the size of their shoulders, giving a more aggressive and masculine look. The whole idea was to fit into a man's workplace, while still looking stylish. These days, women can wear a suit to work without issue. But choosing the right outfit can still be tricky.
The key to the perfect work suit is choosing the correct fabric and fit. This all depends on the season; for autumn and winter seasons, wool is the best choice. For spring and summer seasons, linen and cotton are great choices. The heavier the fabric, the warmer it will be. Wool is by far the most popular fabric for suits, due to the fact that it is so versatile. It also breathes well and can also be worn in slightly warmer temperatures. It’s a very soft fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily, making it very convenient.
You can also choose super wool as the fabric of choice, and it will generally be classified with a number. The higher the number, the finer the cloth will be, and also more expensive. One drawback to super wool is that it doesn't hold their shape very well and it requires extra care. If you want to own a suit made from super wool, stick to one or two suits at most.
If you want to wear a skirt, make sure that it's not too tight and not too short. Business skirts are typically hemmed just around the knees. Use your mirror and make sure that your skirt is not too tight anywhere; choose a skirt that fits your body shape perfectly, while giving you room to move around comfortably. The skirt should sit slightly below your natural waist, so use your belly button as a guide. If you have to suck in your belly to fasten the skirt, it’s too tight. Your zipper should also pull up easily for a perfect fit.
When it comes to blouses and shirts, what you wear is not as important as the suit itself. Keep in mind that a blouse is made from transparent materials or inappropriate. Rather go for high-quality silk and cotton items, as these are good choices and made from high-quality materials.
If you choose to wear a blazer, make sure that it fits comfortably at your widest point, normally chest, shoulders or stomach. The length of your blazer is also important; shorter blazers tend to look better on petite women, while longer styles look great on taller ones. They should fit comfortably over your shoulders without pulling, and it should not have too much room there. Rotate your arms and make sure that you are comfortable and have a full range of motion. Finally, to get the correct length, the end of your sleeves should reach up to your wrists.
Your shoes should always be functional, clean and attractive. Women, in general, find that flats or low-heeled pumps are best suited for the workplace. If you want to wear heels, make sure they are no longer than two inches high, as heels higher than that may look unprofessional. Your shoes are very important for your outfit and it truly makes a difference in your overall look.
Choosing the Right Accessories
Along with your suit, you can choose a few accessories to complete your look. This can be a handbag with a few personal items, or a briefcase that not only looks neat but has space for all your work documents. Proof cases are traditionally made of brown or black leather, and this also shows quality and style. If you have to carry a briefcase, a computer bag or a handbag, make sure that they all coordinate.
You can also choose to wear a belt, which should preferably be leather and no more than three-quarters of an inch thick. The belt’s color can be coordinated with your outfit, and you have quite a lot of options here. You can also add a scarf, made from wool, silk or cashmere. When it comes to jewelry, remember that this is more. You want to keep a formal and professional look, so jewelry has to be understated. Finally, glasses are among the few accessories that you can use to bring out your individuality, even in a conservative working environment.
Building up a wardrobe for work can be a big investment, but it’s definitely a worthwhile one. Make sure that you go for pieces that fit your personality and style, as well as your body shape. If you do it right, you can mix and match a variety of items to ensure that you have more than one outfit to choose from.
