Fashion Tips For Women During The Summer

During the summer when things are more laid back, it can be hard to distinguish what is appropriate work attire. Check out this video from ClevverStyle and spice up your summer wardrobe! 1. Throw in some color. Shoes are a great for popping some color into your outfit. Try something bright and cheery like white or green instead of the boring black or brown shoes. 2. Don't be afraid of florals. Just because you're a professional doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with your work wardrobe, especially during the summer! Florals are a great way to express your summer side. Just because you are a savvy business woman doesn't mean you can't show your girly-side! Find a cute floral blouse or dress and pair it with a sleek blazer to maintain professionalism. 3. Accessorize. Make a fashion statement! Vamp up even the most boring outfits with a chunky necklace or a colorful hair band. Avoid going over the top by keeping your outfit simple and not loading on too much attention-grabbing jewelry. Another great accessory is a colorful belt to go around your waist. Whether you're wearing a dress or a blouse and a skirt, this is always a fun way to add some personality to your work outfits. 4. Ditch the suit. Dresses and skirts are a great alternative to suits, which can be hot and uncomfortable in the summer months. Although you don't have to be overly conservative with your dress choice, be sure to avoid revealing too much skin. Make sure it's not low-cut and avoid spaghetti strap dresses. In the end, wear what's comfortable. If you have any doubts about whether an outfit is appropriate, always choose the conservative route.

Every hiring manager looks for different skills in the job candidates they're hoping to hire. Not only are job candidates being evaluated on the hard skills they possess; they're also being evaluated on their soft skills—the skills that don't belong on a resume but can be identified during a job interview. It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
