Flip-flops, spaghetti straps,
and heavy makeup, oh my!
Ladies, it’s work, not a nightclub or a trip to the supermarket. If you like your skirts and dresses as much as I do, bring a scarf to drape over your knees so you’re not showing the world your goods. A nicely tailored suit goes a long way, just mix and match your camis and heels to change up the look.
If suits aren’t your style, or you live in a warm climate where it’s too darn hot for all that material, wear that sundress with a light sweater to cover your shoulders for those cold conference rooms, no spaghetti straps, though.
Now for the shoes, peep toes and flats are okay; strappy heels and flip-flop sandals, not so much.
Keep the perfume, makeup, and jewelry minimal.
Remember: less is more!
Keep in mind that you want to make a nice, professional impression and make your clients appreciate your work, not your legs (although, I’m sure they’re fabulous!).
And men, I haven’t forgotten about you. Dress pants and/or chinos with a dress shirt and tie. Depending on where you’ll be located, if you’re in court or a law office, wear a jacket, too. If you’re in your own office, the choice of jacket and tie is yours!
No jeans, no sneakers, no matter how cool they look!
