Have you ever felt like you have to dress in a ‘certain way’ in order to be taken seriously at work?
I have heard this so many times. Women dressing in a way they think they 'should' in order to fit in and be taken seriously.
I still remember who I was and how I dressed at my first job ever- the work experience, my mum picking my outfits... painful memories.
I felt like an impostor, my clothes didn't feel anything like me so my attitude reflected that.
The key here is learning how to stay true to who you are while still commanding that credibility that we all need in business.
This is not about changing who you are, it's about learning the 'rules' of how perceptions are created, then adjusting a few things here and there to be taken seriously while showing up as YOU, in clothes that make you feel and act like the powerhouse you are!!
It's all about letting your image do the talking!
This outfit is a bit too serious for me, however, it's got many elements that make me feel fully me.
I am wearing a statement piece with my necklace, the style of my jacket is not that traditional and my shoes (sorry not in pic) are my favourite.
Top: *COL, Pants: Saba, Jacket: Wish, Necklace: Swarovski.
* (COL) means they are a Colombian brand ;)
I wore this for a photo shoot where I needed a bit more of a credible look for some corporate work. The most important thing here is that I chose black and beige because even though it is more serious is still more me than just wearing black. There is ALWAYS another way to stay true to who you are and how you want to show up than just wearing black every day or fitting without the 'industry' standards.
