Women's Business Clothes in the UK
Business meetings, black-tie dinners, and even regular work days in the office require some more formal attire. Yet, it in no way means you need to look boring and plain.

Whatever your body type and size, you can have an elegant, stylish, and, what's important, fully appropriate business look in a burgundy, dark-green or navy blue sheath or straight dress paired with beige court shoes or heeled-boots and a classy purse.

Nail Your Professional Look
Business clothing is what you normally wear in professional settings. Dressing for a regular day in the office, decisive job interview, or an important corporate meeting, we always strive to strike a perfect balance between looking appropriate and stylish. And while a tried-and-true business suit is always a saviour for men, ladies can mix business wear in a number of ways. They are free to choose from polished pant or skirt suits, classy separates, and elegant business dresses and that choice often appears daunting.
First off, to successfully develop the skill of mixing flawless business outfits, it is essential to know the general dos and don’ts of business style clothing.
- Showy clothes exposing or revealing too much of your body
- Sleeveless designs
- Skinny trousers, leggings, ripped jeans
- Excess or catchy accessories
- Heavy or bright makeup
- Sheer and too light fabrics
- Sandals, slides, flip flops
- Body flattering cuts
- Long and below-the-knee hems, modest necklines, long and short sleeves
- Elegant straight and sleek trousers, some types of classy jeans
- Moderate accessories including classic jewellery and watches.
- Natural soft makeup
- Smooth mid-weight fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen
- Heels in refined designs and smart flats
Once you master the business style basics, knowing business attire types varying in degree of formality wouldn’t go amiss either. Thus, the most common type is business casual, which is workwear you can come across in nearly any office. Standing in-between more relaxed casual and restrained formal, business casual outfits allow for some twist of style and pop of colour.
Business professional is a more conservative type of workwear usually used in settings that require a stricter dress code such as banks, accounting and law firms, financial and governmental institutions. Business professional outfits are focused on well-tailored fits and neat designs that exude reserved professionalism. Meanwhile, business formal is a black-tie dress code which is obligatory for formal settings like special dinners, banquets, award ceremonies, and some evening events.
