Office Dress For Women Over 50



On May 2, I will return to a work situation where more professional dress is required...(I will write more about the job later).  So, I am beginning to plan different looks from my closet in order to be completely confident and prepared my first week.  I want the woman over 50 to have the best office looks!

I received the jacket and necklace, pictured above, about three years ago and decided to pull  them out again recently.  One of the benefits of an occasional closet clean is to find pieces we have not worn for awhile.

I, also, started an office inspiration folder where I am placing ideas I find online which work with pieces I already own.  I know that is what PINTEREST is for, but this one will be smaller and more personal to me.  

Walking in with confidence to a new situation is critical and does require prior planning...more than just the night before.  I will share more with you later about the job and returning to daily career wear!

Hope to see you tomorrow for another HIT YOUR STYLE SWEET SPOT...Jennifer and I will discuss how we dress when eating on a patio!


Have a happy Saturday!

  1. Best of luck in your new adventure. I have to dress "business professional" every day and find myself gravitating toward dresses a lot due to their ease of styling. I like the look you've created here. It shows your personality while remaining professional. Having a 'mix and match' closet is essential!

  5. Good luck in your new job, you look very smart. Much as I love being retired I do miss wearing nice work outfits. I still have a couple of good suits that I don't want to part with!

  8. Hey Pam! I can't even imagine what I would wear if I needed to appear more professional. I would definitely need to hire someone like you to coach me and take me shopping. Good luck with whatever direction your life is heading and we'll all look forward to seeing whatever unfolds. ~Kathy

  11. I am very curious to know what you are going to do that requires more professional dress. How exciting. All these new adventures.
    This outfit is probably the first of many great outfits.
    Good luck.

  12. It will be interesting to see what you decide about office dressing.
    Offices are little sub-cultures and many times you end up going with the flow, which can have many variations.
    I work in an office with many young people, both clients and co-workers and always give my outfits the once over to be sure I'm not looking competent, but not like I could be someone's mother.
