10 Experts Share 10 Tips: Looking Great at the Office by Forbes Women Contributer Samantha Ettus, personal branding expert and bestselling author

When it comes to personal branding, the outer you reflects the inner you. Putting care and thought into your style will help you stand out in all the right ways.

For some expert advice in this arena, I approached 10 leaders in the beauty and fashion worlds and asked them each for one tip for looking your best at the office:

1. “I love to see a woman go to work in a dress that can take her from day to evening so that she looks appropriate in the office, but can head straight out for a night on the town.”
– Erin Fetherston, designer
@ErinFetherston

2. “Keep an emergency beauty bag- a second makeup bag at work with a brush, tooth brush, lipstick, mints, a mirror- whatever your essentials are to keep you feeling good.”
– Shoshanna Gruss, designer
@Shoshanna_Gruss

3. “Find your work uniform. An easy go-to look is a pencil skirt, button front blouse and cardigan or a simple sheath dress. A blowout always helps too!”
– Liz Lange, designer

4. “Wear heels to an important meeting or presentation. They will make you feel empowered and will help you to project confidence.”
– Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Founder, Gilt Groupe
@GiltAlexandra

5. “Embrace your own unique style. Focus on a timeless and classic look that suits your personality rather than following the trends.”
– Frederic Fekkai, stylist
@HairbyFekkai

‎6. “Don’t ever walk into a meeting without lipgloss or lipstick. ‎It gives a polished, confident aura.”
– Alison Brod, beauty PR guru

7. “A fitted blazer always adds polish to even the most casual look.”
– Lauren Merkin, designer

8. “A pop of color is a great way to spice up your work wardrobe. I love jewel tones like red, purple and green.”
– Elie Tahari, designer

9. “High heels and red lipstick on call under the desk at all times!”
– Stacey Bendet, designer

10. “Even if you wear no other makeup, always groom and set brows. Clean brows make you look pulled together.”
– Wende Zomnir, Founder, Urban Decay
@UrbanDecay411

This article for me reflects on the different characters of women in our society whichever style suits you best, you compass it into your own personal style and make it your own, be comfortable in your own skin so that you ooze confidence in the workplace that compliments your intellect.

Women should be seen and heard for all the right reasons…. let’s pave the way for women enpowerment!
