Business Attire!!!!

<><> pictures
Ladies, I have recently been dealing with a lot of interviews and different offices that require and some suggest business attire. I have found  that many women are unsure or have no clue what business attire is. Ladies when business attire is required or suggested it is vital that you do so.

Let's talk about what business attire is

Business attire is to look professional and conservative. Business attire is for those who want to have a great impression. Business tire does include suit (pant/skirt) slacks, sweater, skirt, blouse, closed toe shoe, and light jewelry. Business attire colors would include black, navy blue, brown, and grey. 

Don't get business attired confused with club attire. Club attire includes jeans, t-shirts, tight shirgts, flip flops, ect.

Business attire can also set you apart from the rest of the crowd. What you are alluding through garments is that you take yourself serious, your serious about your profession, you are professional, or even a growing professional.

Fashion Slaves - The Misconseptions of fashion vs. Personal Style

Falling into the misconceptions of being this perfect runway model or magazine advertisement is the first  step of becoming a "Fashion Slave!" Women who think they have to loose who they are and create themselves to be some high fashion run way model has lost their sense of self and has definitely become a fashion slave!
Ladies I want to be the first to say, "Your Beautiful just the way you are!"
You should not try to master the runway (unless you want that to be your profession)  and all of the trends in the magazine. Find who you are through fashion and find your personal style!
Realize that its about finding what fits you, what looks great on you, and what is comfortable. You must first understand your body,  what body type you are and your size. This will help understand  your proportions and then you as a woman finding  your personal style can see what garments look best for you!

Please understand that this can be a bit of a challenge but it's well worth it. Personal style starts off with you loving and understanding yourself...and it is the beginning of letting go of your shackles!
"Your wardrobe speaks to who you are..."
-Tim Gunn with Kate Moloney
