Give Your Professional Look a Twist

We all know how it feels to have a job interview or a networking event and have to pull out the same black pantsuit that you’ve worn countless times before. We all like to show off our personal flair but sometimes it seems we have to choose between being professional and fashionable. Valley is here to let you know that there is a way to kick butt at a job interview and look great while doing it. We took a trip downtown into the stores Sercy and People’s Nation to scope out some ways to spruce up your professional look.

Color Pop

Getting noticed in a professional standing is all about standing out. Whether it be with your resume, your sales pitch, and especially your outfit. The perfect way to do this is with a pop of color. For this time of season we are all about red. Incorporating this fierce color into your wardrobe is sure to turn heads. A red blazer is a simple way to take your outfit to the next level and is a sure-fire way to make a great first impression with anyone you come across. If red isn’t your thing, you can tone it down by keeping in mind some of the signature colors for the spring season: Navy Blue, Orchid, Orange, Burnt Yellow are all great colors to show off your style in the best way possible.

Don’t Go “Back to Black”

Most people stick to the same black dress pants when trying to look classy and professional. There are a lot of ways to change that. First, do away with the same old black pant. Change that to a neutral colored “palazzo pant”. These pants can complete the business casual look and look great on anyone. People’s Nation has these in a super cute Sand color while Sercy has the same style with a black/blue floral pattern. If you feel that you absolutely have to stick to your black pant, give the look an update by wearing an ankle pant. This way, you could keep the classic look but give it a modern twist.

Accessories Are Everything

One of the easiest ways to make an outfit stand out is to use jewelry that makes a statement. Big, bold pieces like necklaces, earrings, and rings are how to make that great first impression. Sercy has a ton of these pieces in colors that are made to standout like gold, orange, and silver. Just make sure not to overload on the accessories; one statement piece works fine. A good way to put these together is to take the sand colored pants from People’s Nation and pair it with a neutral colored top and one of the bold, gold pieces at Sercy. Voila! Instant glam.

Stick to these simple tips and you’ll be sure to be unforgettable at your next professional event. They won’t be able to forget you, or your outfit
