Whether you work in fashion or a serious corporate environment, it doesn't hurt to spend few extra minutes in the morning to look presentable. In India, we have a common misconception that if you are dressed in basic clothes with unkempt hair and no makeup, you are super efficient and put all your time into work rather than your looks.
I, on the other hand, feel it's the opposite. If you are looking like a homeless person at your work place, it just means you are not good at time management. Same if you are doing overtime too often, it just means that you are not efficient enough to finish your work on time. One has to realise, after all it is work only, not your whole life. There's a lot more to life. I do not intend to force my thoughts on anyone, to each it's own. But I do insist on making yourself look presentable at your work place. Once you start putting few extra minutes deciding what to wear, how to neatly style your hair and groom your eyebrows and put some lipstick and mascara, you will start noticing a change in your work efficiency too.
Looking good gives you inner confidence and you are able to carry yourself better around your colleagues and seniors which adds to your credibility. You will be viewed as someone people can depend on and who can represent the company well. I have myself seen this attitude during the time I was working as a designer in an export house. And then again at an e-commerce company.
This look I styled was for the colder months but I wanted to refrain from the obvious pairing of a pant suit. Hence, I opted for a monotone turtle neck pullover with bell sleeves tucked into high waisted pinstripes trousers. The statement bag is to break the monotony and bring some subtle color and element into the look. This look would be perfect for short girls as it will create an illusion of a taller torso and legs. Add small 2inch block heels and you will look leaner and taller immediately!
