Hello Everybody,

Today at the Headquarters I am playing with a classic black sheath dress and different jacket types:

 

{No. 1} The Classic Type

I keep it all black and matching dress and blazer. The shape of the jacket is square with 3/4th arm length. I add a feather brooch to give the outfit more elegance and statement.

{No. 2} The Printed Wool Blazer

With a simple dress such as the black sheath dress you basically can pair any kind of print blazer with it. This blazer has a classic cut that buttons in the front and reaches the hips. There is pockets on the sides as well. I wear it unbuttoned for a more relaxed look.

{No. 3} The Statement Blazer

The statement blazer is an eye-catcher item. It comes with a bold color and/or dramatic cut. This one has accentuated shoulder pads and a dramatic collar. Although the length and overall style is similar to the classic blazer, it is the details that make it stand out. A sheath dress is a perfect partner for the statement blazer.

I prefer simple elegant pumps with the sheath dress. It is a classic chic look that let’s you come front professional in any business relation.

Hello Everybody,

As I am starting to write this article, I become aware of two things:

First of all this is my 100th posting on Today at the Headquarters. I started blogging about business outfits in March last year and “The Trick With The Waistline” was my fist article I blogged about. Secondly I think this fashion trick is still very relevant that I now wanted to bring it back to you and round into what I’ve learned in the past 10 months of writing on tath.me.

Today at the Headquarters

I am working in a large corporation where female executives are still pretty rare and mostly dress like men for acceptance and also for the advancement in their careers. Fashion wise the rest of us are being observed as all over the place; from super casual to fancy chic, you find it all. As if there is no common understanding of what is ‘business correct” or let’s call it contemporary business etiquette we can rely on.

Observing and interviewing a diverse number of successful young professionals, I believe that if we want to be on equal terms in our corporate careers, we have to be free and accepted in our femininity. I think this independence and equality starts with the way we dress – the way we appear to others. A sloppy jeans you could easily wear to the beach or a cute dress that is simply too tight or too short for the office seems to be the most popular rule as a business ‘no-go’. However, there is a great ‘grey zone’ of business outfits that seem to be accepted but not overly flattering for females. Especially in traditional and conservative jobs, like finance, the classic business suit or costume still rules. I find neither one of them practical or good-looking. For the business suit the belt line sits right on your hips accentuating one of our naturally bigger body parts. The business costume only looks great in heels and if you don’t have a great model-like figure, it can make you appear as very squeezed in and therefore awkwardly shaped.

Imagine men wouldn’t wear business suits anymore – what would you wear then? Being independent also shows in what you wear in your daily job. We do not need to be sexy or men-like; a balance that is authentic for us must be possible and also affordable, not only for executives. I want to see female role models wearing contemporary chic office attire. I myself also want to try new feminine outfits expressing independence from conformity and everything that tells us to be more masculine before success will come. We will be the strongest when being ourselves.

Be brave. Be you. A real modern woman in today’s business world.

The Trick with the Waistline is a great start to new things in your business attire. Find my video on how I dress this trick right here.

The funny thing about these comparing outfits is, that the trousers of the classic outfit were as expensive as the entire new outfit with the skirt – how ironic :)

Hello Everybody and welcome back to work.

If you dropped the pen at your desk before Christmas, like I did, there will be some cleaning up this week. Therefore I am wearing business casual today at the headquarters. Still wanting to be chic and making a good impression, I pair a statement blazer with extravagant shoulder pads with jeans and a wide silk blouse. It is cold outside, so I am wearing my classic coat and add a brooch and faux fur as outdoor accessories. Not bringing much to the office today and therefore a thin briefcase will do the job.

Thank you so much for reading! Great to see you here on TATH.
