The way you dress up creates an impression even before you speak a word. Where crisp, business outfits play a dominating role in creating a professional look, your accessories can either make or break that look.

businessLess is more– Never over-do the look with a jumble of accessories. Stick to a small pendant or tear drop earrings instead of big hoops. Also, if you plan to wear a waist-enhancing belt over your suit or dress, make sure it is not flashy and overly large. The clients or colleagues should take in your appearance as a whole and not focus on a loud piece of accessory first. Avoid accessories, especially jewellery that clink and clatter, as it makes you look unorganized and not in control. Go for pearl over silver or brass, pearl also has an elegant touch to it.

Wear proper shoes- Shoes say a lot about you, and whether you are dressed in trousers or skirt, getting the right pair is essential. Steer clear of anything that has a casual appeal; sandals, knee-high boots, or sequenced shoes are oh so wrong. A pair of solid pumps is an ideal choice, but if you are partial to flats, try going for ballet flat in black.

Keep the handbags simple- Whether you want to mix-and-match with your attire, or bring in a contrast, your handbag should be nothing flashy. Stick to the basic brown, beige, or black and make sure it is multi-functional so that you don’t need to carry stuff in your hand.

business-2Scarf it up- Scarves help to break the monotone of an office outfit, but without becoming too overbearing. Go for simpler patterns and avoid the flashy ones. Silk scarves are a better option as they have a rich feel to them and instantly add a touch of opulence to your attire. Keep in mind that silk scarves are also great for those who have metal allergy and have to stay away from basic jewelry.

Impress the olfactory senses- Not a lot of people pay attention to their choice of perfume or cologne while preparing for business meetings. Go for musk over floral tones. Also, do not bathe in perfume if you don’t want to suffocate your prospective business partners or clients.

A quick tip from WomenClothingToday- Never fidget or play with your accessories, if you are one to do so, lightly clamp your hands together and keep it on your lap.

To your success!

Women love accessories. Shoes, bags, hats, belts and scarves, not only are they all beautiful in their own right, but they can totally transform our look, add a touch of individualism or even quirkiness and inject interest into an otherwise ordinary outfit. They can lift a whole ensemble with an injection of color. More so than any of the other of today’s much-loved accessories though, women’s scarves have a truly delightful versatility which makes them a must-have for any lady’s closet.

Most of us have probably owned women’s scarves in the past, or even have a collection in our closet now. We wear them around our necks, waists and hips to create stunning effects, and we might even wear them to create an empire line on a simple dress. We even wear them in our hair as decoration or as practical accessories to keep the sun from doing any damage to color and highlight treatments or to stop it from drying it out and turning it brittle. Rarely do we think about using them to accessorize our accessories though.

Much to the amusement of the men in our lives, us ladies rarely go anywhere without a trusty handbag, often containing what appears to be everything but the kitchen sink. As well as being so practical though, the sizes, shapes, styles and colors that we select say much about who we are, although often our choice is limited in a financial sense to what we can afford. A handbag, however, is a prime example of an accessory which can be given a whole new lease of life with the use of a unique and fabulous scarf to transform it from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Open up your closet and look at your collection, not only of regular handbags that you use for work and shopping at the mall, but your evening bags and beach bags too. Do they have any detail such as loops or rings where you could thread a stunning silk scarf of a coordinating color to create a really individual look? If not, then simply loop a gorgeous women’s silk scarf around where the handle meets the main part of the bag and let it drape and flow. The effect is intensely feminine and will lift any bag out of the doldrums.

Women tend either to be hat people or not – there usually is no in-between where hats are concerned. If you are a hat person though, and you want to give yours a complete but instant facelift, then again, a fabulous silk scarf is the way to do it. Take a floppy beach hat or even a chic one that you want to wear to a wedding, and try tying a long silk scarf above the brim to change the look entirely. You can either wrap it around and around until all the fabric has been used up and tuck in the ends, or simply wrap it once, tie in a knot and leave the ends of the scarf to trail behind you. Either way, you will feel as though you are wearing a brand new piece of headgear.
