    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    ‘The future is female’ says a famous slogan of our days, in a world, where women fight for the rights and get more and more accepted in every aspect of life.

    Of course we are not saying that men are less important, but the tendency of women gaining power is also changing our lifestyle in major ways.

    So if you want to join the powerful female leaders or at least learn from them, here is the perfect opportunity. We have collected some of the things influential women do in order to stay respected.

    Of course there is no doubt how important outlooks are. ‘Dress the part’ is a motto every woman should have written on her wardrobe. In a professional environment always look smart, feminine and self-confident. Choose your clothing wisely, according to your physical qualities. You cannot go wrong with a black dress, a navy skirt and a white blouse.

     

    The way you start your day is a crucial point when it comes to the evaluation of quality. Start early and with a positive mindset. Don’t rush. Try to do some kind of simple exercise, or even better, meditation before you even get ready. Eat enough and eat healthy. See the morning routine as a gift to yourself, as an hour (or more) of me-time.

     

    Believe in karma, because it always works. So act kind and helping towards others. Co-workers, family members and even staff at your local grocery store. You will see magic instantly unfolding itself in front of your eyes.

    Be active. And not just physically, (which is of course equally important) but also mentally.  Be a person, who makes the first step.  Approach new people with confidence, be open to others, feel curious. Networking is something we cannot live without in our personal lives or even in our careers. Don’t be lazy, if you have an idea, act and see if it works, you cannot loose anything.

     

    Listen and speak up. It is very important that you say what is on your mind but are also open to issues of others. By doing so you will be more appreciated by others and will also know about every issue that might go on behind the scenes.

     

    Always be true to yourself and never try to be anyone else, firstly because it is impossible and secondly because comparing yourself to others creates unnecessary stress. Insecurities are normal, the question is only how you handle them. So next time you see someone, who is better looking, richer, funnier or simply more successful than you, feel grateful for them and see them as your own personal teacher.

     

    Stay flexible. Of course you can (and should) make plans for the near and far future but also give a little space for the unpredictable. If you are open to change and learn to let go easily, you will find that it reduces anxiety and can take you on completely new paths.

    Or actually the day before. Have a look at your diary and go through your schedule mentally. Prepare what you need to bring with you, who you will have to meet with.

    2. Clever beauty routine

    Practice your everyday beauty routine and decide on a look that you want to go for on most days.

    Dress to your mood: Colours and their meanings

    Dress to your mood: Colours and their meanings

    It is known that different colours have different psychological meanings and can have a large influence on our behavior and mood throughout the day. The colours we wear on certain days, do not usually represent our favourite shade, however they can tell a lot about what message we want to give to those around us.

    1. Black

    Black is one of the most worn colours and can have lots of different meanings depending on the context. It is the shade of mourning and communicates distance, however, it also stands for power and seriousness. Black is elegant and can be worn in many different forms: as a little black dress, as elegant black heels or a black trench coat. To avoid overdoing the trend, combine dark pieces with colourful accessories or even a touch of white for contrast.

    1. White

    As the opposite of black, white is the shade that creates openness and stands for light and sensitivity. Brides wear white to communicate innocence and purity on their wedding day. Lots of people think, white must therefore not be worn on any other occasions. This view is completely wrong, as a stylish white dress, a pure white blouse or white jacket can be the highlight of any outfit. 

    1. Blue

    Blue is another one of people’s most favourite picks from the palette. Blue comes in many shades and has a variety of meanings. It creates a fresh, clear sense and reminds of ever-flowing water. Navy is a great alternative to black and represents professionalism, trustworthiness and seriousness. It can be combined both with colours and with camel, white or even black. Dress up for a meeting with a navy dress and brown court shoes for the perfect look!

    1. Red

    This is truly and clearly the colour of love and passion. It draws attention and is a strong statement as part of clothing. Choose this colour if you feel feminine and want to show your strong side. Be aware however that red can appear aggressive so be careful not to exaggerate with it. Red can be greatly combined with black or white for a true fashion statement.

    1. Green

    Green is another increasingly popular shade, which appears on the runway season after season. In 2017, leaf green was chosen as colour of the year by Pantone, which made the colour even more sought after.

    If you like colours but are not a fan of bold statement shades, go for emerald, or forest green, which represent nature and create a sense of freshness and style. Green can be best combined with other earth colours (shades that appear in nature) such as browns, and greys. 

    Whatever your style, remember, you can influence your mood and the way others will look at you simply by changing the colours you wear.

    The LBD – everything you need to know about this fashion Jolly Joker

    This jolly joker item is most probably the one in fashion the most articles have been written about. We can also not skip it moreover it is a must as our brands, Enemy in the Wardrobe’s foundation is the LBD.

    In this article we are focusing on one of the favourite key elements of a woman’s wardrobe: the little black dress. One thing is for sure: the LBD is a multifunctional piece that has come a long way.


    For a long time, black dresses were associated with mourning and were only worn, when needed. However, in the 1920s the iconic fashion designer, Coco Chanel reinvented the little black dress as a stylish item, any woman can wear. This was the first step towards its success. By the 1930s it became famous and was worn by dancers on stage, in any style and variation. The LBD got quickly also popular in Hollywood, as it looked good on the big screen. In fact, the concept of the dress suitable for day and evening did become both basic foundation and versatile item of every woman’s wardrobe.

    Some famous actresses of the time made this piece even more iconic. The blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe wore a figure-hugging dress in Asphalt Jungle. The real breakthrough, however, was in 1961, when Audrey Hepburn appeared in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in the memorable Givenchy dress.

    Since then, the LBD is a regular on the red carpet and is present in almost every woman’s wardrobe. In 2010, the term “LBD” got recognized in the Oxford dictionary and is widely used, not only in the fashion industry.


    Styling your LBD


    Of course LBDs can be various lengths, styles and shapes, which gives women the freedom to choose the ideal one for their silhouette. It can be dressed up and down also, and that is its magic.


    You can opt for a figure-enhancing, knee length style, or pick one with an A-line skirt. The perfect dress can be loose fitting or straight-cut with a boat neckline and short sleeves, or a V-neckline without sleeves.


    When choosing your dress, remember, this, too it is a key piece of your wardrobe therefore it should make you feel feminine and comfortable at the same time.

    An LBD is a perfect base for your outfit and can be combined with heels, or flats, colourful accessories and a handbag to make the look less strict or even more elegant.
