Editors pick: Dress for success Fall Winter 2012 Work attire 101

Getting dressed for the office doesn't mean leaving your personal style at home far down the walk in closet. The secret for dressing up on Monday mornings is to find out which looks give you a polished, professional and enthusiastic feeling even when you feel like going back to bed and call in sick.

The styles, colors, lengths and fit of your fashion choices will speak volumes about your abilities on the professional working field.

In the spirit of looking your best for the office here’s a list the most important trends this season that definitely will get you a promotion or a salary raise.

1. The power suit

You can easily walk confidently into the boardroom in this menswear inspired suit.  Feminize your well-tailored suit with nice jewelries and a statement bag. If you're heading straight from the office for a night out, then switch your office bag for a glittery clutch, a lashing of mascara and red lippy and you're ready to hit the town.

 

2. Classic chic

The casual look embodies precision tailoring, soft and warms colors and a few feminine details and accessories to bring a touch of class and sophistication.

 

3. Early Xmas

Bring a little glamour into the office by wearing a peplum dress or a tuxedo suit jacket. Combining this with a killer heel and flashy accessories, you’re sure you will bring early Christmas feeling to work.

 

4. Thank God it’s Friday

TGIF! You’ve survived the workweek at your job, the weekend is on its way. It’s time to trade in those suits and heels for something a little more comfortable. The beauty of Casual Friday is that it allows you to express more of your individuality than your typical workweek wear. So when it comes to tops and accessories, don’t be afraid to go for unique colors and patterns. A soft, feminine blouse or structured blazers over a bright print t-shirt are both great options. Or, add chunky jewelry and a patterned scarf to a solid top for a fun-but-professional fashionable look.
