3 casual fashion tips for future graduates – Les Appalaches

Beyond graduation and job interviews, your new internship dress code, and any future professional settings, you don’t have to make up your style for your career. If you want to dress better in the office, here are three tips for mastering the business casual look as a fresh graduate.

Invest in everyday basics

To build your professional wardrobe from scratch, you need to go back to basics. Here are some must-haves for organizing a wardrobe that everyone can wear.

First, a black blazer and dress pants Position. These can be purchased separately, but these are the most basic work clothes you will need. Once you have them you can play with shirts underneath and colorful shoes, but they are good pieces to build the rest of your outfits.

Also, make sure you have basic color blouses or polo shirts on deck. These are best in colors like white, navy blue and grey.

These tops pair perfectly with slacks or minimal patterned trousers and can be worn under a blazer. Some sure impressions are plaidladies or gingham. The same goes for skirts. For both pencil skirts and shorter skirts, sticking to basic colors and patterns will make it easier to dress up in the morning.

For dresses, some options you’ll want to keep close by are a classic dress pull and any mid-length wrap dress. Dresses are easy to wear because they don’t require much styling besides shoes and accessories.

Accessories are not unprofessional

Jewelry may seem distracting to some employers, but it doesn’t have to dampen your gaze on a boss. A long statement necklace goes best with a simple top. Instead of a necklace, you could opt for a set of braceletsa look or one cuff as a declaration element. It is better to choose a single piece compared to the rest of your outfit.

A claw clip to keep your hair up and your bangs to the side is a modern take on the professional bun. If your clip matches a color in your outfit, you’re about to look put together. Nowadays there are many models of claw pliers to choose other than the original one.

You don’t have to wear heels every day

Don’t just think that heels are necessary for work. There are many other options for footwear that don’t have the potential to be painful.

Slip-on shoes can still be appropriate for work. Black loafers decorated with chains are simple yet classy for their price. If you wear them, make sure your jewelry is also the same golden hue.

A pointed toe is a modern take on flats, which have always seemed like the only other casual option next to heels. While you’re still lying low, add a strap to an otherwise thin shoe for a different shoe with more coverage.

If you are still looking for some elevation, there are more comfortable work shoes with some length. Some white chunky loafers would go best with ankle socks and patterned trousers. A square heel will always make you feel closer to the ground and easier to get into.

By gathering just a few items from this list, you are ready for the important first moments of adulthood. Be sure to dress appropriately for the occasion and don’t be afraid to let your personal style shine through at work.
