Renovating my wardrobe; How does a business woman dress?

You might have a killer business idea, but if you're dressed in sweatpants and a t-shirt, no one will take you seriously. It's a fact. The way you dress can influence how clients and customers perceive your business, so if you want to stand out from the crowd, it is very important to pay attention to what you wear. We've put together some tips for building a professional wardrobe on a budget without smashing your savings account.

Dressing for success doesn't necessarily mean spending a lot of money.

When you start working you might feel the need to dress to impress, but it's important to remember that dressing for success isn't just about wearing expensive clothes. It's also about feeling comfortable and confident in what you are wearing.

If you have a hard time fitting in a t-shirt and jeans (and want to make sure everyone at your office doesn't know you wear the cheapest t-shirt in the market), then don't worry. We've put together a few pieces of clothing that won’t empty your bank accounts and they will still fit great but come in at less than $40. 



From fragrances to body treatments, natural health and anti-aging products can make a difference in how you feel, offering essential nutrients to help you work better and longer. You'll feel a lot better wearing pieces that provide a calming effect and that means cotton sweatshirts, like the ones you will find yourself wearing in the hot and humid Pacific Northwest. Don't forget your workout gear and shoes, too, as dressing to perform counts.


"Soft" shoes are excellent for managers who want to wear minimalist clothing at their office but need a little padding between their toes. Other shoes might be so stiff that you can't walk comfortably without breaking something. Shoes are said to build ankle stability, but comfort is also important.

Dress for your industry, not for the weather

When it comes to the clothes you wear to work, you have to wear something that's appropriate for your industry. The company you work in will have a certain dress code. For example, if you work in the fashion industry, then you should wear something that's fashionable. But if you don't work in there (or if you're the type of client who checks the clothing in the meeting room before getting assigned a wardrobe), always have a backup plan.

You may opt for a more appropriate model than what you typically wear to the office, or you can order a different item entirely. Just remember: Aside from working in (or at least enjoying) your chosen field, your appearance reflects to the type of clients you face. Think about it: If your clients aren't professional at all, they aren't going to care about what you wear.


However, if you work in a field that is more business-like, you're likely to need a more formal store that sells professional uniforms. Here's our guide to picking a wardrobe worth buying: 

You may have to look super formal, but in reality, you should look slightly casual (and we'd venture to even say "business casual").

For example, if you work in technology, you may look more like a boardroom executive rather than a web developer. While you're standing in front of the mirror or ironing your shirt, don't be as self-conscious as you might be in the morning. People trying to determine your professional identity by what they see in the mirror are unlikely to be interested in working with you.

One item never set us back.

Take it from a natural entrepreneur and business owner: regardless of what you wear, don’t mistake dressing too formally for professionalism. We all have to compromise. Make sure your professional attire doesn't compromise your creativity.

In conclusion, dressing to look professional should not leave you in bankrupt; in our store, you can find hundreds of outfits that reflect a professional personality with your clients.

You can find shirts, blouses, blazers, and coats that will make you look and feel ready for your professional lifestyle.
