Part of the reason a businesswoman may not get taken seriously is that she doesn’t look like a credible authority in her field. And if she is a credible authority, she’s busy–often too busy to worry about looking savvy, professional or on trend. With this one wardrobe staple, she doesn’t have to think too much about it. A confidence boosting swing dress, shift or wrap dress in classic, neutral navy is always a great choice!
What I personally love about this one (at left) is the fabric and “cold shoulder” 3/4 sleeve. The matte jersey-knit blend make it comfy and chic as it hangs perfectly and stretches with you whether for work as I was wearing it here, or for an evening out. You can find it on sale at Chico’s now. I love traveling with pieces like this because they don’t wrinkle and there are so many ways to change up the look with jewelry and accessories.
If you follow any of my posts or have read my book, Naked to Knockout – you know how much I stress utilizing jewelry, scarves, and jackets to accessorize and maximize!
