Not all hairdryers are created equal. Some leave you looking like you just plugged your finger into a socket, while others — such as the T3 Featherweight Luxe — leave hair silky-smooth and frizz-free. The difference is in the dryer’s ability to organize a focused cone of ionic and infrared heat, which reduces drying times by 70%. That means more moisture and less over-drying for smoother, healthier hair; $250, T3Micro.com.
I often get asked by my clients how to properly dress for work-related events outside of the office. Even though you are out of the office, and often away from your regular co-workers, you need to keep in mind that you are still part of a business environment. The goal to a successful work-related, after-hours look is to create a sense of balance between femininity and professionalism. And don’t forget the right accessories could bright up any look and take your outfit to the next level!
For a casual business lunch: Match a pencil-style skirt with a neutral color blouse. Give it a modern and chic touch with a wide belt that frames your waist. Finally, accentuate the outfit with golden accessories.
For a formal business dinner: If you have a business dinner after work, a nice tailored suit is the perfect choice. Wear it with a specially detailed blouse, like a neck bowl, which gives a touch of sophistication to your look.
For an after-hours business cocktail: The goal here is to wear a feminine but discreet dress, the length to the knee or slightly above it. Give it a stronger feel by wearing a blazer. As for the shoes, it’s always a safe bet to opt for a pair of pumps.
