How to Dress Conservatively at Work - A Woman's Guide

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Although conservative clothing is all about modesty, your fashion choices don’t have to be dull or plain. Think of conservative apparel more in terms of its ability to convey style and sophistication.


Conservative clothing is about class, and not being excessively flashy or tight in your apparel choices. Luckily, classic conservative colors like navy, camel, and black look good on every woman.


Skirts that fall above the knee generally don’t qualify as conservative clothing. Other no-no’s include low-cut or see-through shirts, skinny jeans, stilettos, or tops that bare the midriff or shoulders. Imagine how a working woman would have dressed in the 1950s – with her modest belted dress, low heels, and neutral scarf. Conservative clothing is elegant, beautiful, timeless, and always appropriate.


Many women like to wear conservative clothing because it doesn’t invite unwanted attention; you leave something to the imagination. By covering up in quietly elegant clothing, you will seem more trustworthy, reliable, and responsible, which are important traits to exude in today’s competitive business world.
