How to Look Your Best for a Work Event

Dressing for work can be tricky, but you shouldn’t underestimate the power of image when it comes to business. Whether you’re hosting a networking evening, attending an awards ceremony or holding an office meeting, looking your best at a work event will make you appear confident and professional. On these occasions, you’ll want to look like you’ve made an effort without overdressing, which can seem confusing. Preparing and dressing for a work event is simple, however, so it’s easy if you know how. Here’s how to look your best in four easy steps.

Prepare Your Outfit
Choosing the right outfit for your event is all about preparation. You don’t want to find that come the big night, your clothes aren’t ready, and you have to wear something that doesn't make you feel your best. Get your suit jacket, shirt and trousers dry-cleaned and ironed a few days before the event and lay them out ready to wear. Select a tie and belt, polish your shoes, and even go so far as to choose your underwear and socks. Hunting around for these things last-minute could make you late, so it’s best to get everything ready beforehand.

Care for Your Skin
It’s not always easy to care for your skin properly, especially if you’re busy. However, if you’ve got an important event coming up, then you’ll want to put in those few minutes a day to help your skin glow. Take a look at your face in the mirror – it is oily or dry? Is the skin cracked, or do you have a shaving rash? Identifying the problem will help you find a product that can repair your skin and help you look your best. Natural home remedies are good too – try cold tea bags to relieve eye bags, or honey for spots and acne.

Shape Up
It doesn’t matter whether your event is next week or next month if you want to shift some extra weight and turn up looking your best, there’s still plenty of time. The key is not to starve yourself or overdo your workouts, so you don’t end up exhausted before the big event. Experts suggest that weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise, therefore if you only have a short amount of time in which to lose some weight, addressing your eating habits is key. SANE Solution is a scientifically backed weight loss solution that can help you shed pounds and keep them off, so this is a good place to start if you need a

Get Plenty of Sleep
Make sure you get plenty of sleep in the nights running up to the event. If you’re hungover or sleep-deprived, it will show, no matter how well you manage to cover it up. When you get adequate rest for your body’s needs, your skin, hair and overall demeanor benefits, do be sure to clock in on beauty sleep if you want to make a good impression on your colleagues and clients.
