PERSONAL GROOMING & CLOTHING - WOMEN

 Never wear contrasting undergarments under light tops as it will show.

 Your shirts collar, cuffs should be clean and there should be no missing buttons

 Keep your nails clean and polished.

 When choosing nail varnish color, choose colors which are light, neutral and closer to your skin color. Bright colors like red, green, blue, purple are absolutely a no-no.

 Ensure your breath is Fresh and clean. There should be no odor from the mouth. If you are prone to bad breath, consult a dentist and gargle with mouthwash frequently, especially after eating.

 Preferably use lipsticks in matt shades. Use a lip liner to outline our lips before you fill in your lips with lipstick. When outlining your lips, stick to the natural curves of your lips. The lip liner should be a shade darker or the same shade as the lipstick. Lipsticks shades to be worn at work should be light in color and not dark shades. The shades should be natural in color rather than bright and dark. Light pinks, light browns and skin tones are appropriate

 Pick the Right perfume: Ideally, perfume is never to be worn at work. What you can use however is cologne, body sprays/ mists, and deodorants etc.

 Whilst selecting cologne, opt for one that smells fresh and tingling, nothing to heavy in aroma. Steer clear from strong fruity or spicy smells for work.

 Use deodorant / Anti per spirant

 Wear long lasting make-up

 If you like wearing saris it is advisable to wear chiffon, georgette or cotton handloom ones during summer and pure silks in winter, they impart a sophisticated image.

 Sari should be worn neatly in a professional style.

 Handloom saris need to be starched and ironed well otherwise they drape unflatteringly on your body with numerous unsightly creases.

 Pin the sari well so that it does not fall

 Put the pin on the back shoulder as this keeps the sari intact and does not show the pin too.
