I have seen a similar image a few times while traveling, so it is best to be addressed.

Under no circumstances should there be sequins and Swarovski crystals head to toe.

Notice that both of these ladies are using their dresses as the focal point; everything else adds subtle touches of class. The dresses aren’t paired with sequins shoes to match. A classic Louboutin completes the statement beautifully and the look is pulled together.

Faux pas #1: Large feather earrings with traditional corporate attire
I love large, exotic accessories as much, if not more, than the next person. However… if you are fully aware that your corporation is traditional, err on the side of safety. The only time that this is safe is when you work in an artistic or fashionable industry, and you have gauged what the acceptable “norms” are. (i.e.- When I worked in the BCBG Showroom in NY, a fashion spread could have been created from the beautiful outfits that were seen in the office).
