Professionally Polished

Being professionally polished isn’t always exciting, but knowing you have wardrobe staples you can count on when you need to look your most groomed and put together is important.

When I need to look well groomed but reserved (ex: meeting a new client for the first time, major presentations, etc.) I opt for the classics and let my good basics make a polished statement.

I found this all grey suit in 2012 when I transitioned from software consulting into traditional management consulting in O&G (aka from a world of color and candor, into black and white formality).  Here I’m wearing the suit together, but it works great as separates too – the dress is the grey version of my black sheath dress that finally wore out – I wear the grey a bit less than black, but it too has had repairs to prolong its life expectancy.

My scarf is the same from the last post, just tied differently. I love how wearing scarves instantly changes an outfit, while pulling it all together – they give a limited wardrobe some additional mileage and intrigue.

Find good classic basics and you’ll always be professionally polished.

All my best,
