What can I wear to a networking event? This is a question I hear a lot from women I meet. Others are – Does it have to be formal? Can I wear jeans?
You are representing yourself and your business and it can be quite tricky to decide what to wear to these informal, yet important, meetings.
Your image says a lot about you and your outfit helps you represent who you are and what your values are. Remember, you are your brand.
When we network we don’t necessarily have to wear a business suit, we can keep it more casual, but it is important to look polished and well dressed. After all you want to be taken seriously so your business can grow!
In this blog I’ll show you some options with current pieces from different price ranges and brands. You can mix and match them the anyway you like to make sure you look and feel stylish. Enjoy!
