One Shirt Style for Women

Mark Zuckerberg, the billionaire founder of Facebook, is famous for wearing the same t-shirt every day. There is something to be said for having a consistent business attire look, but realistically, he only gets away with that because he is a billionaire and no one cares if he is fashionable. However, with a bit of creativity, as a woman, you really could create style and fresh outfits daily from a single shirt. The most versatile shirt you could have in your business wardrobe is a long sleeved, white button down. Learn how to make the most of this shirt in your wardrobe and you can look like a power professional.

Why the white button down? In the past, this may have been considered a staple of a man’s wardrobe for business. Studies have shown that women who dress more masculine or androgynous have a higher rate of promotion and are better compensated. They get paid more. Wearing a feminized version of men’s business clothing can be advantageous to your career. Here are a few ways you can use that shirt for different looks.

Wear a scarf. A beautiful silk scarf can instantly feminize your business shirt, while still commanding respect and attention.  There are many different styles and ways to tie a scarf. Do a search on Google or Youtube and you will get lots of ideas.

Wear it untucked and belt it. The belt will accentuate your curves and add some needed color to your outfit. Wear a wide belt in a dark color to make your waist look smaller. Match it to your handbag and shoes for a finished look.

Wear it in a power suit. Put yourself at the head of the table with a good looking power suit. Match your shirt with a sport jacket or have a suit tailored to fit. You can find nice, tailored looking white button down shirts at places like the Banana Republic. Whichever style you get, be sure that it fits you well and you are comfortable wearing it. Tailored cuts will give you a polished look that will help you get ahead at work.
