What to wear on the job

While I usually write about media and communications I decided to share another interest of mine with you. Recently I interviewed at fashion public relations firms where they asked me to write a blog post about beauty trends. I really enjoyed writing it and I thought I would share it on my own blog. So take a look:

Starting a new job is like the first day of school; you go through your closet trying to create the perfect outfit for your first day. But whether your at school or work there are few must items that are few necessities you need to make your outfit complete:

1. Comfy shoes are necessity whether your walking across campus or running all around the office doing administrative duties. While I would love to be wearing stylish stilettos, there is absolutely no way I can wear a pair of strappy pair of stilettos for 10 plus hours. However this doesn't mean you have to sport your Nike running shoes, some alternatives are a great pair of flats or sandals that don’t cut into your skin, or a pair of cute and casual sneakers.

2. A Long Lightweight Cardigan may seem unnecessary in the middle of the summer, but the AC in your office may be freezing and you need a cardigan to keep you warm.

3. A Blazer is a great way to help you attain that polished look. Whether your working in a corporate environment you may want to wear a solid color such as black or navy, with a tailored fit. While it's important to look professional, if you work in public relations, advertising, marketing or fashion company, experimenting with colored blazers (white, light pink, red) not only makes your outfit pop, but definitely shows off your creative side.

The Messenger Bag is both fashionable and functional. How can you go wrong?

5. The Watch: Pulling out your cell phone every other minute to check the time and your messages is not only rude, but it wastes your body. A watch is a great way to make your outfit sparkle!

Now that your ready, show off that outfit that makes you feel confident and comfortable at the same time.
