Office chic, styling yourself for work – Part 6

February 12, 2013


For the sixth and final installment of the series, I decided to share some thoughts about that certain je ne sais quoi which I believe really needed a post of it’s own….the graceful art of elegance. We could discuss good manners and etiquette but it is so much more. It is a certain style that some people have that radiates a joy that others simply love being around. I have a couple of colleagues like this. They always greet me with a big smile and carry out their work with a spring in their step. A truly attractive person has a heart of gold, an eye that sees the best in people and steers clear of hurtful statements against others in their absence. They are relaxed, fun loving and take pleasure in helping others where they can. They make an effort to being a part of a positive, communal spirit and they take challenges in their stride without underscoring their achievements. Doors of opportunity open for people like this and they are truly a pleasure to work with. It is not easy to define a certain formula to follow, I think the easiest way to develop this art is to find people whom you admire, get to know them and emulate their example.

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” ―Audrey Hepburn
