The Ultimate Power Dressing Tips From BIRKENSTOCK
The days of workplaces having a dedicated dress code are long gone. When the concept of ‘power dressing’ kicked in, the idea of being mundane at work took a backseat. Let's take a walk down the memory lane to get into the intricacies.
The history of power dressing:
The concept of power dressing came into existence in the 70s when women started taking charge of front desk jobs because of their sheer talent and conviction. Until that point, male clothing work staples used to be remodeled for women and they had no choice but to adapt. Pops of color at work were not the norm and only conservative fashion choices were available and hence, preferred. Women were seen in pinstripe suits with formal shoes.
However, soon after the conservative approach to dressing up at work got a significant upgrade. The era of pop culture set in with bold colors, style statements and zestful prints. Women were unapologetically more confident and progressive in their dressing. The conference rooms started to get occupied by women who were “evolved” and comfortable.
Interestingly, sometimes a major transformation can be triggered by a simple wardrobe essential like a pair of footwear. We realize that and feel proud to introduce a range of footwear women can proudly wear as work staples. BIRKENSTOCK’s work staples are a failsafe success at all kinds of workplaces.
