I recently attended a business fair at Earls Court. Although I principally went to attend the seminars, I was aware of possible networking opportunities, so that morning I washed my hair, chose a dress that was smart but funky, donned my boots and applied killer make-up.
At the seminars, I looked around; almost all the ladies were dressed from top to toe in black. The men were slightly more adventurous in shades ranging from white to grey to black. Ladies – you did not look chic, you all looked incredibly boring. Business leaders always tell you that your business should stand out from the crowd. Well, so should you!
Black looks fabulous on the lucky few, but does no favours for most of us. If you would like to know more about ‘How not to wear black’, you can read my review.
