I of course did some good ol' Google research on tips and basically just got the general tips:
- Don't wear white or beige
- No big patterns
- Not bright red.
- Wear hints of color
- Clean lines not big patterns
- Simple jewelry (pearl necklace recommended... I'm thinking no!)
- Black but not all black
- Well fitting clothes
- Makeup to enhance eyes but with only neutral tones
- Hair calm lightly pulled back or straight down
- No collar - since the verdict is out on the best way to wear them
My biggest dilemma is that I don't work for a law firm, I'm not a manager (actually I'm pretty much a glorified peon) and we wear jeans to work; so all this to say a suit or all dark muted colors seems pretentious so I think I should wear something equivalent to business casual ... but what, most of my layered cute business casual clothes are winter and it's sure to be a humid 90 degrees F.
Maybe I'll wear a blouse and cardigan. Jewel tones are good with my coloring but I don't want to be too colorful. Maybe my purple (plum) silk blouse or green silk blouse with a solid cardi (maybe black - black is slimming right or maybe dark gray since my hair is black right now). hmmm... okay maybe I'm getting somewhere.... I wish I had a pencil skirt.... not that you would see it in the photos but it would just be easy to style around.
|Maybe less of a thick sweater and more jewel like tones.|
|I wish I was so chic.|
|not white I know but I have a mustard cardi.|
On to my hair. I have been rockin' the bangs for a few months now but I think for this picture I am going to have them side swept (If they aren't too short). It will open up my face more...and will keep me from having crazy bangs. I made need to take a mirror with me.
I'm so vain!... I'll update with the final result.
