What is your top tip for making a great first impression at a business meeting? Let’s Consider this scenario: You have an important meeting and you are completely at a loss at what to wear.  It is quite a high stake, high profile business meeting and making a great first impression would go a really long way!

Fret Not!Here’s my top tip for making you go in looking like a competent bad a$$ chica! Hopefully you’ve done your homework and shall be speaking the part whilst looking the part.

My top tip for making an absolutely deliberate first impression is: “Turn up in a sleek Monotonal Black look”. It is my absolute go-to for hairy situations and last minute meetings! It works like a charm. Every lady should work towards having a:

a. Well cut Knee-length or midi Black Dress

b. A very flattering black skirt or Pants

c. A round neck , turtle-neck or v-neck black Tee shirt or black shirt

d. Decent black pumps (Patent or Leather)

Once all these are present in your wardrobe, you are well on your way to owning a fully functional wardrobe.

Last week, I was in an out of sorts mood and decided to try and imagine that at that very moment I had an important meeting to go for; a bit spur of the moment with no outfit pre-planned. What would I do at such a situation??

I decided to mash up a bad-a$$ outfit from some of my fave black pieces in my wardrobe.

a. A sleek black tee

b.A well fitted flattering black skirt with interesting textures

c. My favourite black blazer

d. My go-to black patent pumps

I threw them all together, whipped on some minimal makeup and was actually quite ready to go on if I had a great meeting to go to.

Here’s why an all black look and would always be a winner!

a. No matter the cost of the garment, it gives off an opulent vibe

b. It represents professionalism and is starkly smart

c. It suits all skin types

d. It presents a classic silhouette and doesn’t always date

e. It gives off a competent, powerful vibe

f. It is subtle and soothing to the eye( Visually Pleasing)


Do you have any to add to this List?

Have a fantastic and progressive week,

When in doubt, wear all black!!
