Clothing for Career Women:
Seven Wardrobe Mistakes

1. Lots of Clothes; Nothing to Wear:

Inside Woman's ClosetMost women only wear 20 percent of their clothes, leaving the other eighty percent hanging in their closets because it's uncomfortable, it doesn't look right, nothing matches it, it's itchy, it rides up, it's too small etc. Does this sound familiar? Are you one of the women who, when she shops, just fattens her closet? If you have garments that have been hanging in your closet for several months you could be fattening your closet. Learn how to build a wardrobe that works for you so you can look great everyday.

2. Knowing How They Really Look:

If you don't have or use a full-length mirror, then you may not know how you really look when you leave home. A full-length mirror is a must-have for a woman who wants to look her best and know how she looks from head-to-toe. If you rely on a mirror that only shows you from the waist up you are missing out on the full picture. It is the full view that will let you see if something is not right, out of proportion or will let you know you look great.

3. Looking Dowdy:

You don't have to be a fashion plate but to be seen as competent you must look like you know which decade you are in. If you wear clothes that were fashionable or trendy ten years ago you could be damaging your credibility.

4. Making Bad Clothing Choices:

When you are at work dress appropriately. The latest trends are not always appropriate for work. Keep see-through fabrics, glitter, short skirts, sleeveless tops, bare legs and revealing clothing for other occasions.

5. Wearing Unflattering Clothing:

You can look great no matter what size or shape you are. The trick is to wear clothing that suits your body type and is the right fit and balance for your size and shape. Wearing clothes that don't fit properly or bring attention to areas you'd rather hide will not help you look your best.

6. Wearing the Wrong Shoes:

Wearing the wrong shoes for your outfit — too casual, too heavy, too light, wrong style — will spoil your overall look instantly. Make sure your shoes suit the theme of your outfit.

7. Wearing the Wrong Color Stockings:

Choosing the right stockings for your outfit is very important. The wrong stockings will ruin an otherwise great look. Take into consideration the length of your skirt, the time of the year, the color, the weight of the fabric and the type of clothing you're wearing.
