Business Professionalism - 5 Tips for Women's Professional Clothing™

What does it mean to project a professional appearance in today's business world ?

The business world is continually changing, and women have to adapt to this evolving environment. The business casual trend continues. As well, every season has a new look on the runway, and new styles in the stores. It can be bewildering.

Here are 5 tips for projecting a professional image in your business attire:

1. Don't be swayed by every new style. Trends generate buzz. They are good for the fashion business. You need to know the trends, or you end up looking out of date. And in today's youth oriented culture, looking old-fashioned can harm your business image.

However, there's a big difference between being aware of a trend, and being a slave to it. As a working woman, you need to know how to look up-to-date without looking too young, or at the other end, appearing like you are in a fashion time-warp.

2. Pick the colors of the season. If the runway shows models dressed head-to-toe in ho…

Stylish Winter Dressing Clothing Tips™

The gray skies and cold winds that seem to go on forever are signs that winter is upon us, and are dreaded by many women. However, contrary to what many women think, this doesn't mean that one should have to cover up in big, warm, bulky, unappealing clothes that do nothing for one's figure. Plus-sized women struggle more with this issue as many plus-sized clothes are bulky and unattractive to start with. Yet you can still look stylish in the winter if you know what items you should be shopping for.

Keep in mind that there is no substitute to layers when it comes to staying warm in the cold when you are inside and outside. Get rid of those thick, itchy sweaters and opt for several layers of thin clothing. Clothes that conform to your body are more likely to make you feel warm. Seek out clothing that is long sleeved or stretchy and combine these with a sweatshirt or zipped jacket when you are indoors. Styles like these are ideal for being indoors or shopping in town for your holi…

Tall Women's Clothing™

Tall women require an extra degree of attention in choosing clothing and fashion styles to flatter their figure. For example, if a tall woman wears skirts that are too short or too long, it makes their body look out of proportion. Therefore, it is important that the length of their skirts be at either the knee or just below knee level.A tall woman can also play down the length of her torso by wearing blouses that fall over the pants and skirts, giving an illusion of a perfectly proportioned figure.Some fashion experts also suggest that tall women should avoid pants with tapered legs, as they appear to lengthen the legs and accentuate the size of the hips and thighs.

They may even wear prints around the neck and over the shoulders, to make those areas appear wider. In fact, low-rise pants and shoes with straps make the legs appear shorter, thus giving the body an evenly proportioned …

Single Women Buy A Home For More Than An Investment™

LocationYounger single women tend to buy in the heart of downtown, for social reasons. They want a vibrant urban community with amenities right there. They do not want to commute a long distance to the suburbs. On the other hand, women of all ages will buy a home they are not in love with, for family reasons. Perhaps the home is not exactly what they want, but it is close to a great school where their children will thrive, or close to a grandparent who can provide daycare.Safety and securityThese are key issues for single ladies.
