How do I look professional on job sites? I just turned the big 40 & do Interior Design as well as own a Custom Wood Working facility catering to “high end” clients. I am often in Telluride, Aspen, Vail, Durango Colorado & New Mexico (Santa Fe & Albuqueque). My dilemma is that I am in & out of vehicles, in mud, snow, on job sites & up & downladders .

How do I look professional on job sites? Since you are in and out of vehicles, in mud, snow, at job sites, etc. pants and some type of substantial footwear is appropriate. Since you are working with “high end” clients choose quality clothing and quality footwear. You can try topping your outfits with leather jackets, faux fur/fur vests, chunky sweaters and more stylish puff jackets that say “authority” and will give you a professional and more feminine look. If you have a great figure designer jeans with boots and a feminine type jacket would be practical and professional for some work sites.

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.

Before you decide on how much color you can wear to the office consider the top executives and how they dress. The type of work environment in your organization is another important factor.
