It’s spring again! Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, it’s actually warm. Heck, you are this close to going all Disney and breaking into song while you skip down the street. But one problem with spring is that we often get so excited to not have to be covered from head to toe for fear of frost bite that we start to forget we are still professional women that have to adhere to standards.
We talked to Barbara Pachter, speaker, coach and author of numerous business books, including The Power of Positive Confrontation and When the Little Things Count, to get the low down on do’s and dont’s for work fashion for spring. “Dressing provocatively in the workplace is the kind of mistake that can severely damage a woman’s credibility,” said Pachter. She adds, “The key for business women is to ask themselves these questions: What are they drawing attention to via their clothing? Are they promoting their ideas and their professionalism, or their sexuality?”
Pachter concludes by saying, “Women can still be feminine without flaunting their figures.” Here are six work wardrobe essentials you must remember for spring.
