How To Personalize Your Business Look. Find Answers to Your Fashion Questions.

Q: My daughter keeps complaining about the conservative attire she is expected to wear for her banking job. How can I help her personalize her business look?

A: Business basics, such as white shirts and dark skirts or pants, don’t have to lack fashionable styling. For example, instead of a standard Oxford shirt, she could choose one with a more-fitted cut and three-quarter, French-cuffed sleeves. She could replace basic black pants with a sleek, flat-front style or wide-leg trousers. Or seek out a stylish pencil skirt – or even a full, short (just above the knee) style to team with a cropped, fitted jacket.

Then she can add a little personal flair with accessories: ankle boots instead of pumps; an unusual watch or necklace; or a handbag in a high-fashion color. And how about a bright trench coat, so she can feel stylish going to and from work?
