Connie Aluoch- 10 tips on looking your professional best

(The Nairobian newspaper, 2017)

Connie gives 10 tips on looking professional and still  embrace your style.

1. Invest in classic pieces

For ladies, this would be a basic black skirt, a black pair of trousers and a black dress. These can you from your board meeting to your evening cocktail meet. I have about four pairs of black pants and six black jackets. But they are all different styles. Some are dinner jackets, day jackets, while others are more casual. I also own numerous tank tops in different colours because I can wear them with anything.

 For gentlemen, classic pieces would be fitted suits. Have them in the basic colours –black, navy blue and grey. Also have basic shirts in white, pastel blue and pink.
