The days when formal business wear was the standard are behind us. Today, accounting firms have flexible fashion policies that match their flexible, work from anywhere options. Employees are allowed to dress according to the responsibilities of the day ahead of them, with more casual options for work from home days, and more formal requirements for client meetings.
Do you want to look stylish while also feeling totally comfortable in the office? Strike the right balance with comfortable, light fabrics and add splashes of color with your accessories.
Having a client meeting means dressing to impress. This occasion will require a more formal business look with dresses and suits—but don't let it stop you from expressing yourself. Play with patterns, lines, accessories, and color; it doesn't always have to be a plain black pantsuit and black ballet flats.
When you are working from home, you will likely be focused on getting through your to-do list and may have an occasional meeting throughout the day. Do your schedule a favor and get ready in the morning in case a meeting pops up and you need to be camera ready. Keep a professional, yet comfortable look by embracing the 'business on the top and comfort on the bottom' trend. Soft sweaters, button-up cotton tees, or a fashionable long-sleeve loungewear set are perfect picks.
Think of finding an outfit somewhere between 'Comfort Sleek' and 'Important Client Meeting.' Wear a less formal, but still business appropriate dress, bold trousers with a sleek black turtleneck, suit pants and a button-up with no tie, or a cardigan with a button up underneath.
