Style Tips for Women: How to Dress ‘Business Casual’ to Make the Right First Impression

The key is to always look polished and well groomed!  Black suit from House of Fraser

Choose a jacket that’s right for your body shape: for pear or hour-glass figures, wear short and tailored; if you are apple-shaped, find a longer length jacket that stops at your thigh.

A crisp white blouse or a cotton mix twin set with a scoop neck is great – but not too tight and not too much flesh on show.

Skirts are fine but just make sure they are on the knee or just below, and trousers should be smart and tailored.

Find shoes in a sensible colour that match with anything – black, navy or brown,and a classic court shoe always looks more businesslike than an open toe shoe. Finishing touches are important so always keep them clean and not scuffed.

Tights are a must as bare legs are less appropriate at work – a natural colour for summer and a dark opaque for winter to wear with boots.

Keep jewellery to a minimum – just a splash of colour in a necklace but nothing too chunky and trendy. Some small coloured beads or pearls are fine.

Designer bargains

I was in my local town today and popped into a few of my favorite posh shops and found some fantastic bargains.

Although they are last season’s pieces, they will still work this coming Spring/Summer because classics never date.

Always look for a bargain in the high priced independents – you will have a unique piece for the coming season.
