Business woman

Different people have different opinion on things, they normally comprehend fashion and style according to their personality and how they see the world. But there are still some standards that most people keep, just like outfits in the office.

Whether we like it or not, dressing for the office requires a specific style in most countries. Usually this is an easy job for the men – they can pick a shirt and a costume, where for women the task looks a bit more complicated. This is coming from the wider choice of clothes, the fashion industry provides women with – skirt or trousers, high heels or flat shoes, low neck shirt/ blouse or not. All those questions can be a real challenge for women when picking their clothes for the office. It is all because the established norms in the society. Too short skirt can look inappropriate; where too long can may be make us look old-fashioned. And many other considerations we take every day before we leave for work. Sometimes it is really not that easy being a woman.

Why are clothes so important?

Some researchers and psychologists of labour has come to the conclusion that the most important in the office is how much and how you do your job, but right after it, on second place, comes the outfit. Of course clothes are not building the career, but with the right look you can express a statement like “I am a fighter and I belong in the top positions of that job”, and this can actually help you getting a promotion. It is is not about what exactly you wear, but what kind of clothes that fit you as a person have you chosen. And of course clothes can say a lot, show others that you believe in yourself and you are serious about your future development. It doesn’t have to be over formal, but of course we can’t wear a shirt saying “I don’t care” in the office. In most places it will automatically send a signal that you are not aiming to develop. Not necessarily every company will take it like that or every boss, because there are cultures where offices don’t have a specific formal dress code.

In the next lines we would state some ideas of how you can dress in the office as of course that really depends on the area you are working at, the country you live in and the specific company and its values. But there are some of the biggest areas and their “rules” of dressing in the office.

The scarf is a main accessory in our autumn outfits as it completes the clothes we have chosen and gives us a finished look. It also looks stylish and can be worn in many different ways, according to our personal preferences and style. It is practical and in the same time elegant and it also makes us feel like fashion icons. No matter if you are a woman or man; the scarf is always an important accessory of every outfit.

To be sure that you choose the right scarf for your outfit make sure you follow some of the advices below.

Textile

Don’t forget that when choosing a scarf, the textile that it is made from is essential and really important. It should be soft and warm, without irritating our skin. Furthermore the scarf is usually touching our face very often and it is just centimeters away from it. That’s why the material should be carefully picked as this area is very sensitive and wouldn’t like getting unnecessary acne or other rash.  Our advice is to choose a natural textile. Remember that cashmere, linen and silk are your best friends.

Size

We all know the phrase – “The bigger, the better”. The hundreds alternatives available in the stores give us a big choice of sizes of the scarfs. It is always fashionable the last few years, to wear a bigger and wider scarf, but for people with smaller body it is recommended to be careful with the big scarfs and choose a medium sized one, so it doesn’t shorten their silhouette.

Color

It is always a good idea to choose the basic colors that will fit the rest of your outfit. But for those who like to experiment you can always try the latest colors and types according to the trends. Sometimes when dressed in plain colors, a scarf in a totally contrasting one will make you stand out and will complete your outfit.

 

Choosing a scarf sometimes can be hard due to the huge choice we have been given in the stores. But we will advise you to go with your inner gut and of course your eyes for style and fashion design, so you end up choosing the right one for you and your vision. But it is also the outfit you wear sometimes that has to match the scarf. One of our favorite looks is a leather jacket for man combined with medium sized scarf.
