My biggest fear in life is being overdressed, oh, and spiders. Now if you show up at your work event and everyone is in pants and pretty tops and you’re in a cocktail dress, chances are you are overdressed. It’s happened to the best of us.
But fear not! There are quick and easy solutions that every women should have instant access to, her very own emergency supplies.
First, you must have a great bag. It should be sophisticated enough to go from day to evening and just large enough to carry emergency supplies, including an evening clutch in case you feel underdressed. Besides carrying a pair of flats you also need simple, beautiful things to make your outfit more appropriate. Remember, it’s all in the details.
Always carry a wrap or scarf
to change the look of your outfit, and if necessary, cover yourself up. These pieces are so versatile they can change the look of an outfit instantly.
Now, I can’t stress enough the importance of jewelry. From a simple necklace
to bohemian bangles
, jewelry can be the easiest way to change things up. And it’s great to have fun with. It’s always good to keep in mind that when in doubt, keep your outfit understated, and let your accessories tell your story.
So know that you’ve changed your shoes discreetly, thrown on your magnificent wrap to keep eyes up and away from a short hemline, and removed your statement necklace
for a simple diamond
one that works day and night, you can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing you will not be the unwanted center of the party.
My advice to all to avoid this situation completely is to always remember that whatever the work occasion might be, casual or festive, you are still at worst work
