It’s almost the end of Season 3, and what better time to celebrate “power women” (a much better term compared to “office ladies” or “OLs”)? Office workers have to deal with extremes in temperature (air-conditioned offices versus the blazing hot sun outside when they head out for lunch) and they also tend to work long hours every day. On top of that, they have to worry about how they look.
Kevin recommends black-rimmed glasses for a scholarly look and pearls with a ‘young vibe’. Also, thin bracelets and ring sets are ‘in’ this season. *wink*
I like how dark-rimmed glasses serve to hide dark undereye circles too. 😀
Office workers also tend to accumulate fat around the lower part of their bodies. So exercise is important, especially exercises that can be done within the office. Leg raises, for instance, while holding the back of a chair (or the photocopier). Or you can try to ‘sit’ on an imaginary chair – it’ll definitely work those leg muscles as you try to hold that pose.
For the adventurous, grab the sides of your seat and lift your bum off the chair (and your feet off the ground). Once again, try to ‘hold’ the pose. Hehe! This exercise is definitely not easy – I’ve done it before! 😀
As for the fashion aspect of things, professional-looking simple jackets are best. And here’s an important note: DO NOT hold your handbags as shown in the picture above as this will lead to creases forming on your (expensive) leather jacket around the elbow area! Similarly, DO NOT carry it at the shoulder area too.
A small sling bag is best, if you want to prevent aching shoulder muscles!
Finally, make sure you get enough exercise everyday. Take the stairs when possible. Also, carve some time out of your schedule to relax… 🙂 I recommend having a spa experience at home every night, with the use of the right products – it could be an aromatherapy diffuser, or a shampoo or body lotion with an awesome, relaxing scent.
