Do you dress up for work?
Many of us have our work outfits chosen for us - for example, if you’re a police officer or a nurse. But the rest of us have to work out what to wear to the office (or the classroom, or the shop, or the clinic…) on a daily basis.
It can be quite difficult deciding what to wear for work; there are quite a few things to take into consideration. Firstly, your colleagues are going to see you on a daily basis, so can you wear the same outfit twice in one week, or even two days running?
Secondly, and more importantly, should you dress up for work? Dress down Fridays aside, the line between smart and casual wear has become somewhat blurred in many organisations. It’s not like in the old days, when ladies wore smart pencil skirts, jackets and heels to work for fear of the sack if they turned up in anything else. These days, many organisations let you wear jeans to work, or at least the unofficial uniform of most British women – black work trousers, flat shoes and a jumper.
We think that it’s actually rather nice to dress up for work. Feeling smart makes you ready for business and what’s more, if you look smart and professional, your colleagues, clients or patients are more likely to take you seriously. Why not experiment with smart dressing at work this week? This Creation L Tailored Suit should get you off to a fine start – it’s comfy, yet stylish and smart at the same time.
