This week my little sister volunteered to do a guest week posting about how she dresses for her job. (My friend V, a Pharma Sales Rep, did another guest week which can be seen here.) My sister is a Demand Analyst for a big mid-west company. She just graduated college and this is her first ‘real’ job. This week’s posts are typical outfits she wears during a normal work week as a young professional in a business casual environment. You can see all of her work posts here and all of her guest posts ever here.
For days that I have to give a client presentation our dress code goes from Business Casual to just short of Business Formal. But even though you are wearing a suit – it doesn’t mean you can’t add a little personality with accessories to your otherwise serious outfit. It could be a bright bag, a patterned scarf or in my case a sparkly necklace. Just a little touch to show that you are both professional and interesting.
