How to customize a business suit for women
A good quality business suit can make you feel good, as it often carries a certain kind of confidence. Sometimes you feel more confident just by putting it on. The right business suit gives people a professional impression of you, even before you’ve said a word. However, sometimes when you move around the city center, you can give the impression that businessmen are wearing uniforms, as if they all look the same. How do you avoid that?
The secret is in the accessories! Take, for example, a standard black wool-blend women’s business suit. To this outfit we can add a crisp basic white blouse, a classic pearl necklace around the neck, and a pair of simple and fresh leather heels. This woman is not open to criticism, and every woman should have these standards close at hand in her collection of professional commercials. But do you have to wear that every day?
Now let’s take the same outfit and add an elegant basic blouse in a striking color, like purple. We’re going to put on a chunky necklace with big purple beads, and put on a couple of purple foam pumps. Yes, you heard me – I said purple shoes. This totally changes the original costume and some people do not even realize that it is the same costume. The simple act of changing accessories gives it a completely new look.
So let’s take a look at a professional gray wool suit, cut to flatter your figure. Why not, this time, we add a striking red basic blouse, a striking red, chunky-layered maroon necklace, and (yes, you guessed it) a pair of stunning red leather stilettos? Red is a powerful color and gives a new personality to the standard gray suit. For a more dramatic effect, mix red and black.
The key here is color. The suit is the base on which you place the additional building blocks. But the color of these accessories is really what makes or breaks the outfit. Why not go through your wardrobe and find a suit that you haven’t worn in a long time, that you considered donating to a thrift store, and rework it in different ways? Take him to the mall and try on different shoes, tops, and jewelry on him. Maybe he was sitting there waiting to be reborn.
Keep building sets of shoes, jewelry, in addition to the standard basic blouse, in different colors. (You can also add purses and scarves to that trio of colors.) And when shopping for new suits, make sure it looks good with one of the accessory sets you already have. Good quality suits are expensive. But accessories can tolerate a compromise on budget, if necessary. This way you can make many unique and custom outfits with the same basic outfit, without looking like a uniform. Don’t be afraid to improvise; Brightly colored shoes are acceptable these days if they are chosen tastefully, and remember: the trend never changes if no one dares to set the trend.
