What should I wear if I want to make a statement but still look professional?


It’s Q&A time with Amanda Hudes, Founder of Smiling Through Chaos!

Making a statement is all about wearing at least one item that says, “Look at me.”

While we may automatically think that means bright colors, a short or tight piece of clothing, or really huge accessories, it can actually be very classic as well!

Trying pairing an animal-print blouse (super on trend right now!) with a different animal print pair of pants. For example, you might take a tiger print blouse with a leopard pair of tailored pants in the same color scheme, tying them together with some red flats. Classic, statement-making, bold, and professional.

I’m loving suits this season, patterned suits and textured suits…love love love! Take a corduroy suit for instance, in a deep plum color, add a deep teal blouse and a patterned scarf. Professional, stylish and statement-making.

But the best way you can make a statement, both professionally and personally, is to stand with confidence. Rock it all the way baby…
