The key to dressing professionally on a budget is to purchase versatile business basics, and mix and match a variety of garments. Build a professional wardrobe from a few basic pieces with advice from a fashion magazine editor-in-chief in this free video on personal style.
Hello, my name is Summer Bellessa with Eliza Magazine, and I'm here today to discuss how to dress professional on a budget. So, first you're going to want to examine your wardrobe. Second, you're going to want to buy business basics. Third, you're going to want to mix and match. So, first, when you're examining your wardrobe, you're going to want to look for anything that you could pair with something to make it look a little more professional. A floral blouse would be great to go under a blazer. A cardigan to go, maybe, over a dress. There's a few things you want, and it's also good to evaluate what you already have so that when you go shopping you can shop with a purpose, you know exactly what you need to work with, what you already have and what you don't have in your wardrobe. Secondly, you're going to want to buy business basics. So, your best friends are going to be your black pants or your gray pants, or any type of neutral-colored pants that you look best in, that are flattering. Also, a blazer is great to go over dresses or to pair with pants or a skirt, and a good thing about having a bunch of basics is that you can make them into a ton more wardrobes than you could if you just buy one suit or a few dresses. Third, while you're mixing and matching, what you'll do is you could take a blouse or a dress and mix it with the blazer to give it a professional look. You want to make sure that you don't get anything too short or too revealing so that you look the utmost professional that you can. I am Summer Bellessa with Eliza Magazine, and that is how to dress professional on a budget.
