How to Dress Like a Woman by Katie Stahl is a new book that provides an introduction to dressing to impress the boss.
Stahl, a fashion blogger and business owner, teaches the book to men who want to dress for a boss in a way that makes them feel like a man.
Here are the essential steps to dressing like a lady:1.
Wear skirts and skirts only.
You may think that skirts are for women, but Stahl notes that “most of the time skirts are not.”
A woman’s legs are wider than her hips, and skirts are meant to keep her legs in a better position, so she can move in a more natural manner.
The skirt should also give you a natural silhouette.2.
Take your clothes off in front of the boss, then keep your pants on.
Stoll notes that in order to be noticed, you need to look “like a woman.”
You should be dressed “more like a mother,” for instance, “like the woman you would want to be seen as,” “like an old lady,” or “like your mother.”
If you’re in a hurry, you can try a dress in a simple blouse, or just stick to a casual look, like a skirt, or a cardigan, or even a skirt-and-blouse combo.
You can also wear a sweater in the morning or in the evening, if you’re feeling “less formal.”
Stoll writes, “Don’t forget to wear a nice shirt or jacket if you want to look stylish.”3.
Be sure to wear the same outfit every day.
If you want your boss to notice you, Stoll advises you to wear clothes that will compliment her outfit.
She says, “Your dress will look and feel great, and it will make her feel like she’s part of your team.”
This includes wearing the same dress every day, whether you’re at work or at home.4.
Take a walk around your office to get your boss’s attention.
“Take a few minutes to admire the office and make your way back to your office chair.”
This will give you the chance to get a feel for the office, to know how it works, and to know your colleagues’ strengths and weaknesses.5.
Wear the same skirt and blouse for each of your shifts.
If your boss has a casual style, “dress a little different for the day.”
But if she’s an office woman, she might want to get more formal.
For example, if your boss is a woman, you should dress like an office worker in a casual outfit, like something “casual for the weekend.”
Stahl suggests going “casually casual” on the weekend.
For men, she suggests wearing something casual for work, like “the same dress that you wear for the evening.”6.
Use your best judgment on what looks best for your boss.
It’s important to remember that, “your boss is different from the rest of us, and she’ll be more interested in what you’re wearing than what you are,” Stoll says.
So, for instance: if your skirt is too short, wear a skirt that fits well over your skirt.
If it’s too long, wear it too loose.
If the skirt is revealing, wear one that doesn’t show through your shirt or skirt.7.
Dress as a woman to work with, not a man to work for.
“Wear your best outfit when you’re working with someone, not when you are trying to impress a boss.”
Stolls recommends that women dress as “a woman” because “it’s less of a shock when you walk into a room with a boss and you feel uncomfortable.”8.
Dress appropriately for a dinner party.
“When you’re invited to dinner at your company, take off your dress, but keep it on for the entire meal,” Stahl writes.
This will make it “easier for the company to know who’s invited to the dinner and who’s not.”9.
Don’t wear pants when your boss sees you.
“Try to wear pants that are appropriate for the occasion,” Stolls says.
For instance, you might want a dress that is “casque, feminine, and casual, but still look professional,” or you might like to dress in casual attire like a dress shirt or jeans.10.
Dress like a gal.
“It’s okay to dress as a gal if you can manage it, but don’t be afraid to dress feminine and look professional as a man,” Stills says.
Stolls suggests that a woman should wear a “cassey, low-cut shirt, low jeans, and loose heels.”11.
Wear a white coat to work.
“I wear a white hat for work and a white jacket when I’m at home,” Stoks says.
“The coat is a bit more formal for the job, so you want a coat that is formal for work but feminine enough to look professional and stylish at
