Have you ever wondered if your fashion taste can have an effect on how you are perceived by your colleagues or strangers you encounter? Well, it does and it can either be to your advantage or your disadvantage.
Personally, first impressions count, therefore use each encounter outside your home to shine and be in boss lady style mode. Whether you work in corporate where you obviously choose what kind of professional clothes, a stay at home mom, an entrepreneur, or a fitness instructor you can still be stylish. This means, do not conform to boring styles that everyone is wearing.
Try to incorporate a bit of your personality in what you wear. If you love bright colors, you can try colorful bracelets, necklaces, blouses or pants. If you are a black woman with natural hair, instead of wearing a boring wig, you can wear your hair in braids, corn rows, an afro wig, or try other protective styling. There are also scarves and headgear options too.Hair bands, extensions, or flowers are other fun ways to style your hair no matter you cultural or socioeconomic background.
For those of you who work in professions where you are uniformed,you are probably thinking that you cannot show your boss lady style. This is quite the contrary! Guess what? You are equipped with many fashionable weapons to strike with lol. Your shoes can be your fashion statement.
You have unlimited fun and stylish shoe options from clogs to sneakers. I am all about clogs with style! Your watch, Fitbit, stethoscope, lab coat can be your fashion statement. For those of you who have to cover your heads such as in the operating room or wear head covering for religious purposes, there are amazing fashionable and colorful surgical caps and hijabs to wear. There is always a way to show up in style while looking professional.
