How to Dress for Work Washington DC

Rule of thumb, if the sole is black, it is appropriate. Never opt for the ultra-comfortable gym shoes in Washington. While they are certainly feet-friendly, they are never professional. When it comes to heels, make sure you wear the height you can walk in without falling over. And in warmer weather if your toes are going to be exposed, make sure to keep your feet clean and neatly pedicured.

How to Dress for Work

What about your feet?

Rule of thumb, if the sole is black, it is appropriate. Never opt for the ultra-comfortable gym shoes. While they are certainly feet-friendly, they are never professional. When it comes to heels, make sure you wear the height you can walk in without falling over. And in warmer weather if your toes are going to be exposed, make sure to keep your feet clean and neatly pedicured.

Capris &?gauchos

Some styles of these cropped and flowing pants can be dressy. Always stick to classic colors. If you choose to wear them, pair them with dressy professional heels.

Trendy jewelry

Big earrings, necklaces and belts are popular right now, but use discretion when wearing them to work. Avoid wearing accessories that can become distracting for others.

Leave these at home

Above all, avoid any clothing that is sheer, sloppy or revealing. The following are some of the worst offenders: Denim shorts, short skirts, halter or strapless or tank tops, flip-flops, workout attire, beachwear, midriff baring clothing, concert T-shirts or shirts with offensive slogans or logos
