4. Add some color
Office attire doesn’t have to be drab. Well-placed, colorful pieces, in classic silhouettes can show of your office-savvy style and show that you mean business- but have a great time doing it.

5. Pump it up
Keep your feet looking like a million bucks- the same amount of money you stand to make, as brilliant as you are. This refined shape, will keep you (and everyone else) on their toes- without distractions. It’s definitely “the power shoe.”

6. Lip It
It’s easy for lips to become flaky and chapped after a long day of biting down on them accompanied by stale and dry office air. Long-lasting lip colors tend to dry out and fade through out a day. The solution? Opt for a lip tint that is smooth, glossy and easily applied throughout the day. It keeps your lips supple and your look fresh.

7. Sweep it up
Unless your day job is a Victoria’s Secret Model (and if that’s the case, rock on sister), keep the bombshell, high-volume hair reserved for date night and days off. Not saying that a little volume, with a well-maintained haircut is a sin- but bedroom hair is for the – well, you know. Opt for a face flattering cut, or a snazzy style, that’s pulled back from the face, like a chignon. This will keep it out of your eyes while you work, and will automatically make you the sophisticate of the office. And keep those ends trimmed! Nothing will make you look scruffier faster than ends that split all the way to your scalp!
