Here's how to get the office look right.

1 Your clothes must fit well: Skirts and pants for women are considered appropriate in the workplace but neither should be excessively tight. Additionally, skirts should be long enough so that they don't expose your thighs when you are seated. Subtle slits in skirt that make it easier to walk or sit are appropriate but slits that are exclusively for the purpose of revealing your legs are not appropriate in the workplace. Also, the clothes should be neatly ironed.

2 Footwear: Heels are an appropriate choice for office environment but they shouldn’t be too high or too wide.

3 Makeup: Cosmetics applied in a natural way can help you to polish your look but care should be taken to avoid applying your makeup in an overly dramatic fashion. Avoid using bright colours in nail polish and lipstick.

4 Walk briskly: Remember to walk confidently at a brisk pace. Don’t drag your feet as it shows one’s laid-back attitude. Also, do not forget to smile.

5 Jewellery and more: Opt for small and delicate jewellery pieces. Jewellery that is too loud and too chunky, should be avoided. Also, hair should be well groomed and fixed in a manner that is neat and tidy.
