How well prepared are you (and your wardrobe) for the workplace?

Our latest post from Chelsea: Project Manager 9-5, Fashionista 24/7 – and NEXT for Women fashion and beauty contributor.

According to a recent story on National Public Radio, many managers are finding that recent college grads need a boost in professionalism, including a boost to their wardrobe.

“What we found was that there are a set of qualities, (and) characteristics that…people would like to see in new college graduates…Those qualities include the ability to communicate and listen respectfully, motivation to finish a task and attention to appearance…”

Summer begs us to break out the flip flops and sleeveless tanks but unless you are working pool-side for the summer you may want to invest in a few boardroom ready items to get you through the warm months. We love suiting items like this white linen jacket from The Limited.

Always keep in mind what type of industry you work in and let that help dictate what you wear to work. Be mindful of your office culture and the image you want to project. When all else fails keep an eye on what the boss is wearing and use that as your guide.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
