Power Dressing Tips for Corporate Women

The corporate business world is a tough place. Whether you are preparing to start a new job at a firm or you are trying to make a bold statement through power dressing, you would like to be sure that the impression you will be creating is a good one.

As a corporate woman, here is a simple guide on creating a simple, elegant, yet powerful work wardrobe.

For women, a two-piece suit is a must in the wardrobe. A dress and jacket are feminine and presentable but lack the versatility of the classic suit. The 55 percent wool and 45 percent polyester blend is you best choice. In warmer climate, you may prefer cotton or linen.

Your suit should be solid in one of the five basic shades—black, brown, navy, gray, camel, or white. Most women suit the classic, clean-cut lines of the Channel jacket with a soft dirndl or slightly gored skirt.

Choose a tailored day blouse in a complementary color to your hair, complexion, suit, and business situation. Pale blue, dusty rose or aqua will be feminine yet authoritative.

To pull your look together, you may wear a hose that elongates your body and complement the ensemble. Choose earth tones for a brownish outfit, charcoal with blacks and darker colors, soft gray with gray tones, and navy with navy-based colors. For a blush of color don’t hesitate to include sea mint, violet or powder blue in your wardrobe hose.

Shoes should be of fine leather and in the classic pump style. Black and brown are basics, but navy and bone are also perfectly acceptable.

A strong confident woman does not need a lot of jewelry. Peals will take you round the clock, 12 months a year, and will not intimidate anyone. Gold and silver subtle pieces are also safe. Tiny stud earrings are perfect for day with a pearl, gold, or silver necklace.

Remember, you don’t have to be busy to be elegant.

Everyone in the business world should have at least one classic suit in their wardrobe. It's an investment to get a quality suit that is cut well and suits your body type, but the suit can be broken up and paired with other things in your wardrobe to create many outfits. If you are lucky (ladies) you can find a three-piece suit that comes with jacket, skirt and pants. This gives you even more versatility.
