Sharp. Sleek. Presentable.
Everyone wants to look & feel their best & most competent at work. Power dressing is significant for working professionals — telling tales of success and ambition and elevating everyday work-life confidence. Just like a good hair day, great dresses for work can leave you feeling like a champ!
We have explored the psychological influence workwear has on how you feel, your productivity and your workday experience in our last article, ‘The Psychology of Workwear — To Be Defined’. But what really constitutes looking good in your workwear — or rather any clothing, at a fundamental level? The good news is that with regards to clothing, it’s not actually your size, body shape or proportions that make or break the look. Rather, it’s what you choose to wear for your size, shape & proportions that really matters.
Women come in an infinite variety of beautiful shapes, sizes & proportions. As for many years through history, certain standards of beauty have been systematically defined as beautiful excluding most others — it is quite understandable that when it comes to looks and defining what looks good on themselves, many women feel the pressure to alter their own appearance & size to match “fashion”.
Well, here’s a myth buster for you — It’s actually the other way around!
The key is to find the right size for yourself, the best fit for your body shape & the most flattering silhouette for your proportions. And it is most certainly not ‘one size fits all’!
You may have heard differently — but fashion is for all. And workwear — well, that’s a step beyond aesthetic fashion. Office outfits for women are a functional necessity for us working women! And this where understanding one’s body shape is key. The TBD Silhouette Guidebook helps understand what silhouettes look best for each body type — the result of rigorous research and commitment to inclusivity, by testing each style on women across body types.
Be it classic dresses for office wear or sharp workwear shirts for women — the power gained by wearing flattering, tailored & well-fitting work outfits is undeniable! Just like functional, feel-good & comfortable clothes are key to inward assurance & a good mood at work; a sharp, sleek & well-fit garment is key to outward confidence & presentation.
At TBD, we’re uncompromising on quality and demand the best of both worlds in our offerings to the kick-ass community of women that we’re lucky to be a part of. We love giving off those #girlboss vibes inside out!
