10 Commandments for Dressing for Work

Posted March 13, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Building Your Brand
Every morning, women around the country make a huge decision before they even set foot in their offices – what to wear. It may seem small, but the difference between a JCrew cardigan and a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt can also mean the difference between a $30,000 salary and a $100,000 salary, between a promotion or a layoff, over time. Women who appear stylish, put together, and at the same time comfortable at work will appear more confident and ready to lead than those around them who are tripping on heels they can’t walk in, spilling on clothes they don’t care about, or looking over their shoulder hoping the boss doesn’t see their outfit today.

But is it really so easy to look great at work? It may be if you follow the “10 Commandments of Dressing for Work” from CareerBuilder.com writer Beth Braccio Hering at CNN.com. Check out the full article here. Follow these 10 Commandments and you’re sure to become the woman who gets a leg up with her tights instead of a step down with her too short skirts.
