Style guide: You might not be your own boss but here’s how to look like it

Some outfits literally scream “I’m the boss” even though in reality, you might really be broke and leaving off, of indomie and suya. But that doesn’t matter as long as you look good, I mean why buy actual food for a year, when you can get a Deola Sagoe dress with the money. One of the most important things in life is to always look good, because looking good is good business, whether you are peddling your skills, services, goods or *cough* goodies. To help you with that, here are seven style tips to help you make sure you are always on top of your game.

  1. Buy the staples. From tailored slacks, to little black dresses and pumps there are certain things every woman needs in her wardrobe, (check out our previous posts if you have no clue). The key to buying staples is to splurge on them, go for the good stuff which can always be paired with cheaper clothes and accessories, that no one will notice once you are all dressed up.
  2. Wear heels everywhere, even to food festivals and football games, the only place you are allowed to wear flats is in your bathroom.
  3. Wear well tailored but comfortable clothes. A lot of people mistake ‘too tight’ as being ‘properly fitted’. Too tight clothes end up making you feel uncomfortable after as much as taking a breath in, and while you might think you are doing a great job at masking your suck belle face, everybody can tell you are uncomfortable.
  4. For heaven’s sake don’t wear knockoffs. Second hand clothes, nameless designers, going naked, absolutely anything is better than wearing knockoffs.
  5. Always step out in clothes with crease free clothes in clean cut lies. Emphasis on ‘crease free’ even if it means ironing everything you are going to wear in a week, the rare couple of hours PHCN gives light during the weekends.
  6. You are not allowed to have chipped lipstick, concealer cracking under your eyes, your pant line peeking through your skirt, the list goes on and on but you get our point. It’s wahala we know, but that’s what you signed up for.
  7. Own it. Whether you are in a stunning black dress, or a faded tee, the way you carry yourself is really the key to looking like a boss.
