Ladies, have you ever wondered what to wear to a business meeting, conference, or professional networking event? Today I am a going to give you 5 easy women’s business outfits for looking professional and classy.
I’ve always been told that it is important to dress for the role that you want. I’ve also been told that wearing professional clothes can be beneficial to people who don’t look old enough to do a certain job (i.e. me – I still regularly get asked if I am in high school…) So I love wearing professional business suits and sets!
The following outfits are examples that I have worn to business meetings, academic conferences, and professional occasions – so I know from experience that these outfits work!
- Slacks for Women, Blouse, & Blazer
This is a good combination for everyone. I think it is important to have these staple pieces in your closet. You can go with neutral colors or go with bright bold colors! I have black, gray, and purple slacks that I like to rotate. My blazer is black! Then, I have several different colors of blouses that work with all the slacks.
Bonus tip: Make sure to have the slacks hemmed at the bottom if they are too long. You don’t want to trip on the hem of your pants.
2. Business Skirt, Blouse, and Heels
This is my favorite outfit combination! I am a short person and I never have to get my skirts altered! Skirts are so versatile and comfy! There are so many patterns, cuts, lengths, and styles to choose from.
Bonus tip: It is important to invest in warm tights for the winter months or chilly offices! I also love the fun patterned tights for the spring as well. Personally, I have always kept skin-colored, black, and purple tights in my wardrobe.
3. Pantsuits or Rompers
I love romper suits. I have a navy suit with white stripes and like to call it my “boss suit” (LOL). These outfits always look professional and put together. Personally, I like to wear heels with mine so the bottoms don’t drag the ground, but you could easily get them hemmed as well.Rompers are so simple – you only have to put on one piece of clothing and you look great. I would definitely invest in 2-3 rompers.
I love wearing dresses! There are so many options and styles to choose from! You can pick solids, patterns, or a combination of both. Some even have pockets! Like the rompers, most dresses are one piece and so easy to style.
5. Jeans and Blouse
For a more causal look you can always stick with jeans and a blouse. This will always be a classic in most wardrobes! Again, there are so many options with this style. You pick different colors, patterns, material, and cuts of your jeans. Blouses are the same way – so many options, so little time!
Next time you have to dress for a professional occasion – remember one thing – you want to be comfortable. If you’re not comfortable in the outfit you’re wearing then you most likely won’t be confident. Dress your best and you’ll rock whatever occasions you have to attend!
