My girlfriend and I were arguing about our professional attire. She is not a fan of the traditional white blouse and dark pencil skirt. She thinks the look is too librarian. Especially with your hair up in a bun. I disagree. Not only is a crisp white blouse sexy, but a pencil skirt, stockings and heels is a down right powerful combination, not only in business but also after hours. I think a nice tight bun (hair) and glasses might make a woman look a little too powerful, but I doubt too many men would mind if I hushed you with a stern look. The lonely librarian I am not, the look works for me. She is into more colorful displays and though I like some of them, I just don't think of that look as the powersuit. And she says a womans hair should be down, never in a bun.
So I ask....Up or Down?
