We all know that it's not an easy task to find the perfect work look, but we've got you covered. These seven fashion tips will help make your day go from Monday through Friday in style!
1. Pay attention to the dress code
The first and most crucial advice is to be aware of the company dress code at all times. Try to figure out what kind of fashion is expected before an interview, and it will do wonders for your chances!
2. Respect your own style

3. Plan your outfit the night before
The night before, plan your outfit so that you can wear it in confidence. A good way is by making sure all of the items match and complement one another well; this will make any ensemble look intentional instead of thrown together without any thought or planning.

When you're feeling out of ideas, opt for classic looks - it's the easiest and safest way to dress! For that, some key pieces cannot be missing in your closet: Well-tailored pants; A tailored blazer(or two); A good white shirt paired with black heels or boots, and lastly but not least... the black dress.
