A corporate retreat is a perfect opportunity to network with business associates. The dress you have chosen is lovely with clean simple lines. Too short for a business event unless you wear black opaque stockings with simple closed toe black pumps. (Closed toe pumps are more professional than peep toe style shoes.) You want attention on your face area not at your feet. Pearl jewelry will be very elegant with this dress. You want to have work colleagues focus on your accomplishments. Dressing appropriately for business events shows good judgement on your part. In every work situation you are being “watched” and evaluated. Eat and drink in moderation.
Dressing for Evening Business Events
Evening business events after work are usually a little more dressy than daytime office attire. Dress on the conservative side (forget sparkly and shiny) since you will be judged by others. Your presentation might mean getting or not getting a promotion. You want to look poised and that you have good judgement at every business event.
Power Work Clothes
Power work clothes are simple style, tailored classics that are not frilly. You can build a work wardrobe of basic styles that say you are confident in who you are and that you are professional.
