5 Simple Tips for a Confident Style

Starting up a new business and being a woman can be tricky, especially if you have a busy college  schedule to deal with, as well. If you need to present yourself as an assertive and confident manager on meetings, you will need to work twice as hard as men. A smart suit is not enough, and if you want to be respected, you will need to look the part. To make potential business partners, employees, and customers respect you, it is important that you adapt your looks to the situation. Find five tips below on how to look like a confident woman effortlessly.

Looking Tough

Use smart and bold colors to emphasize your looks. Use darker eye shadow and lipstick that gives you a great coverage and gets rid of your imperfections. Start with a quality stick foundation to make sure that you have an even complexion and look professional. Apply contour and a strong eyeliner, so your features are well defined, as you are ready for the battle.

Keep it Simple

If you want to be respected as a supervisor or business partner, you need to show off your intelligence instead of your makeup skills and taste in jewelry. You want people dealing with you remember the conversation instead of your earrings. Keep it smart, elegant, but also simple, only wearing simple makeup and a few smart items of jewelry.

Don’t Overuse Makeup

If you use too much makeup, you can make your female business partners and potential
customers nervous, while men can easily be distracted. Use natural colors, and
avoid making a fashion statement. Don’t use lashes and nails that look out of
place, and unnatural. Avoid glitter at all cost: it is great for parties, but
not suitable for business meetings.

Wear High Heels

High heels are essential for the businesslike looks of women. You are likely to deal with tall men in the room when turning up at meetings, and you don’t want them to look down on you. There is also something bossy about wearing  high heels and having the confidence to walk in them. Keep your shoes simple, though, and don’t distract people with 9-inch heel designer creations. Combine your heels with a smartly tailored suit or trouser suit to look confident and smart.  

Have a Straight Haircut

Romantic looks might be perfect for a date and a night out, but not for a business meeting. If you want to show people how organized you are, start with your hair. If you have short hair, correct the imperfections using tape in hair extensions, making sure that they match your original color and length perfectly. Avoid wild curls and colors, and look respectable, smart, and well-groomed.

Being a woman and being in business is compatible. If you run a business, you want to appear equally smart and confident, to compete with the males in the room. Use smart, simple looks to impress your business partners, customers, and employees with your personality, instead of distracting them with your bright makeup and wild curls.  

Top 3 Mini Skirts For This Summer

Top 3 Mini Skirts For This Summer

Although most fashion experts will argue that it is still maxi skirt season, not all of us are tall skinny models who can pull those off. They may look sexy on a certain body type, but most mere mortals in them look like they’re wearing potato sacks. This is precisely why we have decided to pay another visit to the mini skirt department to see what’s cooking over there. So if you want to meet people online and amaze them, check out these types of mini skirts you have to try this summer!

#1: The High Waisted Mini Skirt

It is the high waisted mini skirt that rules the runways and streets of fashion capitals this summer. Every fashionista has at least one high waisted mini skirt in her closet that is tight enough to show off her tush she’s been working on at the gym since February. You can find them at really affordable prices that won’t set you back more than a few trips to Starbucks, but if you’d like to splurge, the high-end retailers always have your back. Since the high waisted mini skirt has been in style for a few seasons now, it won’t be tricky to find a top that is just light and tight enough that it can be comfortably tucked in. Pair with cute wedges or everyday flats and statement jewelry, and turn more than a few heads when you hit the town.

#2: The Pleated Skirt

The pleated skirt made a comeback several years ago, and from the looks of things, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. You’ll see pleated skirts of all lengths, but the uber cute ones are those that are above the knee. If you’re not crazy about the idea of wearing a high waisted skirt that shows off the midsection that so many of us are desperately trying to hide, a mini pleated skirt is the perfect choice for you. Pair it with a cute tank top that is tight and short enough that it doesn’t  hide the skirt, but can be wrinkled up just right to hide your tummy. If you go for a bright summer color, make sure you wear a white top with it for maximum effect. Dress your outfit down with a pair of flip flops or pair it with cute heels for evening, especially if your skirt is black.

#3: The Floral Skirt

You absolutely can’t go wrong with a floral skirt this summer. It’s so breezy, stylish and easy to pull off on any occasion that you have to have one in your closet as a go-to piece for an impromptu night at the movies or a date with friends at a fine dining restaurant. The only thing you need to worry about with a floral skirt is where to wear it next! Pair it with a silk top that matches the color of the skirt for evening or with the ever so versatile white tank top for daily summer activities, such as shopping or grabbing brunch with friends on a patio. Accessorize to your liking but make sure the color or design of your top is subtle so it doesn’t overpower the skirt.

Picking the right swimsuit is anything but easy, which most of the ladies can probably confirm.

So, without a further ado, let’s take a look at these top 7 low-back swimsuits for this summer!

 

#1 Floral low-back one piece

Floral prints definitely resurged this season and thus made low-back one pieces way more interesting to wear. We have a piece of advice for the shyer amongst you gals: floral prints are a great way make a distraction from problematic spots on your body, which means that everyone will admire your romantic beach choice and won’t be spending too much time analyzing your figure. We’d say it’s a win-win!

 

#2 Striped low-back one piece

Speaking of strategies for great visual appearance, the striped low-back one piece could become your best beach accessory in no time. The design itself visually expands your torso and makes you appearance almost flawless. We dare you to choose stripes that go in vibrant colors because they will go amazing with your summer tan.

 

#3 Halterneck Deep V-neck one piece

Okay, we’re pretty much sure this would be Marilyn Monroe’s choice because its design unequivocally reminds us of that subtle retro style which, as it turns out, has never left out of fashion. Halterneck low back piece is destined for a bit bolder individuals that are not afraid to bring out their inner sexappeal to surface!

#5 Low back with cut out sides

Cut-outs are also a big yes for this season, and even a must-have according to some famous haute couture names. Namely, cut-outs make really distinctive details on your overall beach outfit and certainly bring the entire low-back model to a whole new level.

 

#6 Low back swimsuit with zippers

We can also thank “Baywatch” for this one, but the truth is that an interesting detail such as zippers in the front or back can really make a huge difference on an otherwise classic low-back one-piece.

 

#7 Low back swimsuit in bold/neon colors

Apparently, bold/neon colors have proudly returned to the fashion scene a couple of seasons ago and are definitely here to stay. From electric blue to lemony yellow, choosing a low-back swimsuit in some of these colors could be a great choice for this summer indeed!
