Manner Monday®: Black and Blue Best for Business Dress

As seen on:
by Carey Sue Vega in Business Etiquette, Manner Monday, Manners

Thanks to Paula Burkes with The Daily Oklahoman for asking me to weigh in with my thoughts on the best color choice for professional business dress.

I was pretty excited she asked me to share as I’ve recently developed a robust professional dress training that goes beyond the standard and stuffy “Dress For Success” seminars many of us have experienced.  It’s called “Professional Dress Cues from Hollywood for a Blockbuster Career”.  It’s a fun a lighthearted approach that gives participants easy and relatable tips to help guide them as they build their professional wardrobe and make appropriate clothing choices which will enable them to have a successful (aka Blockbuster) career!  

And I even cover the topics no HR director wants to cover; it’s the Ladies Only Sequel: “Spanx, Stockings, and other ‘Supporting Characters’” to help the ladies navigate some of the wardrobe topics and choices that are critical to helping them be remembered for all of the right reasons.

Would you like for me to come work with your team?  Please email or call my cell (four zero five – five two zero – three five two seven)!

Do you know someone who would enjoy this post?  If so, please share it and encourage them to sign up to receive Manner Monday?  I would appreciate it!

If you’re new to Manner Monday, I’d love for you to take a minute to learn more about why I started it. You can click here to read my very first post that tells all about it.

Thanks for reading!
