Dressing well at work is something that can take a while to get right. You can’t go all out because you’re in a place of work. But you don’t want to look or feel boring either. You need to get the balance right between being professional and looking glamorous. One of the best ways you can do it is by adding the right accessories to your outfit. You can be more glam without overdoing it. However, even your clothes can be a bit more glamorous if you can get it right while still dressing for the office. Try these tips for a glam work look.
Work with Your Dress Code
Most workplaces have some kind of dress code. If there isn’t a written one, there are often unspoken rules about how you can and can’t dress at work. Looking your best within these limits isn’t always easy, but you can do it if you know how. However, first, it’s a good idea to consider what’s truly appropriate for your workplace. If everyone else dresses fairly conservatively, it might not be a good idea to buck the trend and stand out too much. In some offices, suits are standard for everyone. But in others, you can wear an eye-catching dress, and you won’t look out of place.
Choose a Statement Accessory
Even if you have to keep your outfit toned down, adding accessories can dress it up and make it more glamorous. A statement accessory will stand out but helps you avoid going over the top by wearing too much jewelry. A statement accessory is often best worn alone or with some very subtle pieces. It could be a necklace or a pair of earrings, or perhaps a belt or bracelet. You could also try an oversized ring as a way to make a statement, as long as it’s not impractical when you’re working.
Get a Proper Watch
A lot of people don’t use watches anymore or, if they do, they use smart watches. However, a traditional watch makes a more glamorous accessory. This blog post explains the importance of a watch as a fashion accessory if you want to look glam. In particular, it recommends a rose gold watch, considering the glamorous connotations of the color and its current popularity. It’s classy and eye-catching, without being too flashy. You can get away with using more rose gold than yellow gold.
Do Your Hair
Even if you have to wear a suit to work every day, you can still make your look more glamorous by doing your hair and makeup. Of course, you don’t want to do too much. But styling your hair can add something extra to your outfit without the need for a glamorous dress or flashy accessories. It will help you feel more glam even if you can’t dress that glamorously at work.
Work isn’t the best place for looking like Marilyn Monroe, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be glamorous. You just need to find the right balance between dressing well and following the rules.
