10 Office Wardrobe Crimes



An outfit without accessories is like plain vanilla ice cream -- too serious to be taken seriously. Accessories are a must for professionals, but the adjectives that describe them should be in line with the image you want to project in your office. Sleek, discerning, sophisticated and elegant are all good places to start. Funky, distracting, outrageous and decadent may need some rethinking. One or two pieces of subtle jewelry and an awesome belt are fine. The same rules apply to men, who are better off with no jewelry except for an understated (but superbly made) watch and a wedding band or class ring.
