I am an entrepreneur.
I do not work for anybody else so I tend to have my meetings at Starbucks or Peetes! When I am getting prepared for a Starbucks meeting I sometimes never know what to quite expect. I never know the outcome if I am going to be there for a while or a short time. What I DO know is that I will get a tall mug of Starbucks!
I like to keep my dress “professionally-casual” simply to be comfortable and to look good!
For myself I wear my uniform: Hair in a bun, pearl earrings, a pearl necklace, button up white collared shirt or a nice blouse, a cardigan (this upgrades your look), comfortable slacks or even booty pants as long as they are a good clean fit and loafers. Sometimes I will wear boots if I want to jazz up my look. And of course a nice peachy lip gloss. For gentlemen I like to see them in slacks or nice jeans, a button up and a nice pair of shoes. I like to know that the person that I am meeting with is taking this meeting seriously as well. I realize that jeans have become “the new standard” for some professionals and I am just fine with that.
However, be mindful not to be too causal or you may be treated like a business casualty!
Critical piece: a watch for BOTH sexes.
